I always get the most peaceful feeling when I come home, it doesn’t matter where I go or for how long, I guess it’s all the wonderful positive magic that flows through my garden. Today, I felt that serenity stronger than I can remember in the recent months.

I took the leash off of Lucy and let her in the house then turned back to face Arial and Cythia. The two faeries were sitting on the gate to the back yard, watching with intense concern as the emerald guard checked the silver protection orbs in the garden that marks the boundary between our house and the Shunners.

I walked quietly up behind them and peeked between the ornamental iron leaves that cover the gate. “So, are you two going to tell me what in Gaia’s name that little stunt was all about? Shooting in and disrupting a  perfectly charming conversation I was having with my neighbor down the street, I almost fell out of my chair! I’m just sure that she thinks I”m a little whacked now.”

I was hoping to return the favor of startling them by sneaking up behind them but I forget that it is almost impossible to surprise a faerie. Without turning to look at me Cythia said, “We have received some disturbing information from our colleagues in the realm, information that could directly impact you.” She turned to face me now, her eyes dark with worry. “The queen has requested your presence, I have been sent to escort you to the palace.”

Arial took her usual place on my shoulder. “The Emerald Guard and I will not leave your side.” She gave Cythia a defiant look which told me that they had already talked about this. Cythia shrugged her tiny shoulders. “As you wish, but we must leave immediately.” She pulled out her wand and touched the tip to my forehead. A flash of bright white light surrounded us, and as the world dissolved beneath my feet I asked, “Does this have anything to do with Lilly!?”

This isn’t the first time I have traveled into the realm of the fae. Every time I land on solid ground again, I always feel dizzy and disoriented. It would be nice if some of that faerie blood I have in me would help when it came to moving about the universe. Arial smiled at me as if she knew exactly what I was thinking.

Fun Fairie Facts

You Know a Fairie is Present When...

You hear a whispering of leaves.
You see a whirlwind.
You feel a tingling sensation in your hair.
You have an unexplained loss of time.
You laugh uncontrollably, or feel exceptionally silly.
You see blades of grass bending when there
is no one around.

The Most Likely Place for Fairie Portals Are...

Lake shores
Glades in the forest
Where two roads intersect
Fences and border hedges (this is Arial's favorite)
Stairwells, hallways and landings
Tidal pools
Bends in a road
