After hours of wandering the labyrinthian passages of the castle-city, she finally found a way out. Freedom from this nightmare at last! Just as she reached the door, something caught her eye.

The Spirit Pool

The Spirit Pool

Arianne had always dismissed the local tales about the “Spirit Pool”. It’s just a puddle in the woods, she thought, when she saw it in the daylight, though many had claimed to see ghosts in this lonely spot. Loved ones who had passed on appeared to some; those wronged appeared to others with more gu...

Longing For Her Captor

When the Fairy King abducted Kella from the Beltane festival, as was the centennial custom between the realms of Fey and Human, she was terrified.

I Never Said No

I Never Said No

This piece is about women giving up personal power to please others, who then feel free to use them as toys, as slaves. It is difficult for the puppet to cut her own strings and free herself, so it is better to assert one's right to say "no" from the start.
