What Doesn't Kill You - Part 13

Bob The Pixie steps forward.  “You have made your decision and that is that.  Come.”  He reaches out and takes your finger.  Be grabs another one on the same hand.

“No, we must have help!”

“Nay,” Bob glares, “the decision is made.  We respect it.”  He pulls you in his direction.

“No,” Be fights the other way, “you must help!”





“Come on you two!”  You pull your hand away from both.  “What is this, tug of war on my hand?”

They both stare at you blankly.

You wave it away.  “The point is, it’s my decision not yours,” you point at Bob.  “And certainly not yours,” you point at Be.

The fae takes a step back, as if she had just been slapped; it makes you cringe.  What happens if you make an enemy of the fae?  There were stories of some very bad things!

“Very well,” Be turns away.  “Ladies,” all the pixies gathered came to attention, “prepare to do battle!”

Tiny sparkles of various hues and colors shoot off in all directions.  The evil spot in the sky is getting closer.

“Bob,” Be calls without turning around, “please lead this human back.  We don’t want the help.”  With that, Be zips toward the storm front. 

Lightning cracks the sky, thunder rolls, and the wind begins to howl.  Treetops whip their branches as the fae houses begin to shake.

For those interested, what is 'The Wall Outside' about?

Step across the barrier and what will you find?
A place of magic just out of sight?
A pixie, a leprechaun, or even a sprite?

What starts as a vacation, turns into a mess. For Jonna, there's
more at stake than meets the eye. Through pouring rain,
misdirection, and a curious mind, Jonna crossed the barrier
between our world and magic.

Now forced to return across the barrier, Jonna battles Dark Mages, angry leprechauns, and a ruthless Minotaur, all in an effort to find his wife. To do this, he must locate the stolen Rune Blade and rescue a beautiful elvish princess.

But what can a human do when faced with a world of magic?
