The Morning Paper

"Horeseay, listen to this, the grooming shop is having a hair stylist in their beauty salon next week for free consultations. If you decide to have it cut and styled like they recommend, it is all on sale. I have always wanted to have my hair styled by a specialist. Maybe I will get a whole new look." I went on, "what do you think?"

"Christmas Miracles" by butteredwings
As she trudged down the slope, a piece of paper nailed to a pine tree caught the periphery of her vision. Curiosity getting the better of her, she shuffled over to the tree, and studied the words scrawled on the crisp paper: "To whoever sees this, I'm in need your help. Please bring me some twigs from the peak of the highest tree — I desperately need it for my spells. Many thanks! — Taelia." "Well then, I'm sure some other Draiks could help," Jen muttered. "After all they are the ones who can fly…" As if on cue, a shadow Draik and pink Draik circled above Jen, waving to her with a smile on their faces before landing softly beside her. "Hey Jen, what are you…oh, that?" the pink Draik shook her head as she caught sight of Jen staring at the paper. "It's been here for awhile. But really, it isn't worth all that trouble — after all, the highest tree is kind of hard to reach even for us, you know." "Couldn't you just fly there?" Jen asked. The shadow Draik shook his head. "Not really. At such a high altitude, it's kind of hard to maintain flight." Patting Jen on her back, the shadow Draik gave a small smile. "In any case, you shouldn't worry so much — it isn't something you would be able to help out with." "But…" Jen started, just as the pink Draik raised a hand to stop her. "I know you wish to help, Jen. We would if it was an easier task. But really — what Taelia wants, as you know, is quite insurmountable even for us… let alone you."

Of Silence: a Home for the Holidays: Part One
It’s fast approaching two in the morning when the candles above Kanrik’s work desk begin to dance in what would seem to be the ghost of an unnatural breeze; and that, as always, can only mean one thing: The thief’s got a visitor.

Nonlinear Companions: Dawn: Part Three
I never liked to talk about how things went in exams, inevitably I would be wrong. However, on this occasion I felt I had done quite well. All the questions had been in the areas I had understood best, and all in all, I was quite pleased with what I had written.
