Goddess of nature, God of frolic

Leafwhisper peered carefully around her shielding oak leaf, a watchful sentry against human children and other predators.

The journey across the vacant back yard was always a stressful one. Everything is, when you’re three inches tall.

Fart-Rocket, the Jones family terrier, yapped excitedly across the yard. He would be a formidable final obstacle. Leafwhisper waited patiently for her break.

A squirrel chittered—and Fart-Rocket streaked off like…yeah, that.

Leafwhisper took advantage of the distraction, and made a long, shallow dive for the bird feeder.

She cut the water of the faerie pool cleanly with an inaudible splash. Home at last!
