Well I figured time to get some work done and here you go. This is another darker tale from my Magic and Nightmares series. Nothing is what it seems is it?
Here is a bit of the opening of the story
Secrets, we all have them. Some are good, some are bad, but they are all meant to be kept close. What can you do if the secret you must keep close might just destroy an entire world? You hide it away and hide yourself at the same time is what.
Abby has just such a secret. Something terrible enough that she left her comfortable life in the city to hide in the deep woods back beyond. Took off, without telling anyone where she was going even. She was lucky that there weren’t many who noticed, even fewer who cared. In today’s society if you don’t fit in most just gloss over you and forcefully ignore you.
In the deep, ancient woods she lived peacefully and simply, totally off any grid that mankind had developed. While most from this day and age would be lost without their cell phones and Internet, Abby had come to enjoy the peace of the land. The nearest neighbor was more than ten miles away, across rivers and streams. Those very rivers and streams were another way of breaking any trail to her. They had no roads leading to them or bridges crossing them. You had to take a boat across and getting that boat to the bank was not easy. Here in the little pocket clearing she grew vegetables and herbs, wrote and painted and lived peacefully, missing very little from her life before.
Should intrigue are reader or three, or so I hope. Probably toss this up in the next few days. Just haven’t decided yet.
