Drabbles for Birthdays 2013
7. Once upon a time
Written for Riverotter, May 2013.
"Inzil says you can't have seen an Elf. There are no Elves, and even if there are, they're not allowed on Yôzâyan."
"Child, what makes you think Inzil knows anything?" A long-drawn out sigh. "But she is right the Elves no longer come here. Just don't talk to her about them. You don't want to upset your friend, do you?"
A short silence, before Aglahad ran past him, going outside to play.
Later, he spoke to his mother. "You shouldn't tell the boy of Elves. Those days are gone."
"All the more reason to tell him of them, I'd think."
