BlogFlash 2012 Day Twenty: Sports

“Wow, that’s incredible!” Eliza said, staring in wonder at Rowland’s dazzling skin.

He returned to his human form to keep other people from noticing.

“So, you’re not freaking out?”

“It’s a lot, don’t get me wrong, but… I do think it’s amazing. I kind of overreacted the other day.”

“That’s okay, it’s understandable. There’s more I need to tell you. At the core, we faeries are inherently good. We stick up for what’s right; that’s our nature. But there’s one who seems to have turned from our ways—Vick. He is intent on keeping us apart. Says a faery falling in love with a human would pollute our world. He was the one behind the attack at the library. Trying to hurt you has become a sport to him.”

“He’s a faery too?”

“Yeah, but he doesn’t exactly look like me. His heart is as dark as his skin and wings, and his eyes are black and cold. I’m working on a way to get rid of him, I just need a little time. However, I fear that’s the one thing we don’t have.”

    I’m so pleased he’s finally revealed the truth to Eliza. Now she can make her decisions with a full deck of cards to play with. I love how you’ve incorporated the prompt too. 🙂
