Intruder In The Garden

“What are you doing in my garden?” asked the fairy, her sword level with James’ nose.

James froze.

The fairy, because that was the only word he could think of to describe the tiny, fluttering creature currently pointing her cutlass at him, was scowling.

“I asked you, what you’re doing in my garden!” she demanded.

“Your garden,” James spluttered. “This is my garden! I just bought it.”

“Pah,” the fairy snorted, “You humans. You cannot buy fairy gardens.”

“I could show you the paperwork,” James suggested.

“Paperwork!” laughed the fairy. “Trust me human, paperwork is the least of your concerns.”

  1. Haha! Well, at least she’s tiny, huh? Although I’m not sure that’s going to be much comfort to our new “landowner” as time passes.


  2. Can’t buy it, but maybe he can earn it? I think – hope – they’ll work something out. (Love the wallpaper, BTW, have I said?)

    1. It’s new I think, unless I’ve used in on a previous template a forgotten about it completely, but thank you all the same. I’m hoping this will be the design that sticks for the site, I’ve played around with it enough by this point I think. Thanks for reading.

  3. Big grin on my face. Loved it, and can easily see this as the beginning of something longer. In other words, it makes me want to see more of these two characters.

  4. I reckon that after a shaky start, they’ll get along famously and she’ll defend his garden from those pesky pixies.
    Great dialogue!

  5. They didn’t get off to very good start, did they? If I saw a fairy with fluttering wings, I would do whatever she said. Nicely done. This maze needs a fairy.
