The Big Surprise
Jess was on her way to the south field, when she noticed a shimmering down the path. Investigating it, she walked through into another world. She looked around. Everything here was greener and more vibrant.
“And who might you be?” asked a voice below her. She looked down to see a tiny man with a long beard smoking a pipe.
“Where am I?” she asked.
“You’re in Faerie, or Elfland, or the Fey-wild, or Fairyland if you so wish.” he replied. “My name’s Babradon. I’m the guardian of the portal you just walked through.”
“I’m Jess.” she told him.
“You must be Cindy’s wife. She’s mentioned you.”
Jess collapsed into the lush grass. All this time she had thought that Cindy was cracking up, like her grandmother had, when she talked about her travels in Faerie. She now knew she owed Cindy a massive apology, like the biggest one ever.
