Flash Fiction Friday: Tricksters

“Is it true that Brownies play tricks on people, Wesley? Like spoil milk and break dishes?” the little girl asked. She sat, legs crossed, beneath an oak tree. Wesley scrunched his nose. “Brownies? What d’you mean, Ellie?” “Faeries.” Ellie tilted her blonde head of curls, blue eyes blinking at her sibling. “Oh, right. Yeah.” He… Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday: Tricksters

Let’s do something fun.” Jared cast a wary eye at the old woman’s house. Its run-down exterior and overgrown lawn gave him the creeps.
