The Trip and the Morning Visitor Part 4
Sixteen-year-old Twhistle Tullugaq trudged down the winding forest trail leading to the Greebik stop. She shuffled along, dragging her feet, and didn't try to catch up with her sister Kiki, age nine, who was lugging a large duffel bag and a heavy rausch horn case.
It was early June. Sunlight burned through the thick morning fog shrouding the Swanwick Region, dappling the trunks of the tall glyph trees. A cold wet mist swirled around the sisters as they walked along the damp, spongy ground. Ferns, mosses, and flowering shrubs grew in profusion along the trail, while carpets of clover-like oxalis adorned the shady hollows.
Tullugaq and Kiki were Churckas from the quaint little hamlet of WrenChester. Had they lived in the Outer World of the City, they would have been regarded as st

Among the picturesque towns dotting the alpine and foothill region of the Gebrigskamm Ranges, Zelmak justly held a high place. The Erskine Valley Basin was overgrown with mostly Yggdrasil beech and that was why it was breathtakingly beautiful in the autumn, more so even than other parts of Gebrigskamm. In autumn and winter, the fog level here was so thick that only the mountaintops rose above it resembling islands in a vast sea.
It was well known by the tourists for the remarkable series of medieval castle and renaissance chateaus left behind by the noble dynasty of Fluss. There were also several mineral springs suitable for drinking and therapeutic bathing, and huge moorland decorated by numerous lakes and

The Quinarth rim valleys harbored a dense population of Faire Folk or as they prefer to be knownthe "Free Folk." Hundreds of permanent towns and villages dotted the misty shores of the Quinarth Rim Area. Hundreds more nested in the surrounding trees or in dens among the root system. Others were always on the move, wandering in pursuit of trade, the next seasonal crop or greener pastures for their herds. Although they were living in a beautiful and fruitful land that was protected from the hostile outside world, the Free Folk knew better than to trust the idyllic scenes before their eyes. Their land held many dangershuge predators like the weira and yowie lurked in the deep wood.

Carpeting the northwestern edge of the free-floating island state of Wind City was a dark and mysterious forest. On the outside, it looked no different from the other ancient forests down below, and its size was rather modest compared to Wind City. However, should anyone be courageous enough to enter this forest, they would soon notice a number of increasingly strange things. The climate always stayed the same here, even in the driest of times. Perpetual saturation of winter rain and summer fog kept this emerald portion cool and wet. It also appeared to be much bigger on the inside than on the outside, growing larger, older an

The 4th of Oct.
It had just finished raining. Once again Kes was on an important errand, followed by her ever-faithful cat and carrying an umbrella that wasn't her own. It actually belonged to a bad-tempered "bird girl" whom she accidentally run into earlier while fleeing a strange goblin-like creature. It was all this "goblin's fault, he had landed on her umbrella causing her to run in terror. Later, he translated the angry twitter speech of the girl, explaining to Kes that since she ruined the birthday cake that was meant for the girl's mother, payment must be made. Upon hearing that Kes had no money to pay, the "bird girl" accused her of being a thief. Angered by this ou
Red Letter Day - Prologue
So here I am, writing.
I’m writing, I’m writing – just as you told me to.
I’m writing, I’m writing, I’m writing.
Have you ever noticed that when the sun goes down, this flat changes? It does. The walls are white during the day and lingering brown at night. During the day, I’m with you and the light from outside paints the walls that heavenly color. But when that sun goes down, the demons wake and I’m alone again, even though you’re just a room away.
Somehow it seems less threatening tonight, and I think it’s because you’ve given me an assignment to try and fight off the darkness. You gave me a stack of papers and a pen and told me to write everything that comes to mind.
It’s a strange feeling to have complete freedom. These empty pages are mine to do whatever I please – I could even wipe my ass with them – but they’re also terribly intimidating. The blank page has always been a nemesis of man. It&
