MLMM Photo Challenge #348

The three stood in awe, looking down at the figure partially concealed in the undergrowth.
One thought she was dead, but the gentle rise and fall of the greenery proved otherwise.
They all breathed a sigh of relief.
The second wanted to go and find their mother, saying she’d know what to do.
The third kept quiet, and simply watched.

Whispering together, they agreed she was a woodland fairy and the youngest tiptoed away to get a blanket and some food.
On her return, they gently covered her, leaving a glass of milk and some fruit close by.
They had no idea if that was what fairies liked, but it seemed a good idea.
She didn’t stir, so they intended to come back later and see if she was awake.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
