Yay! It’s Write a Story with Me day! We started back up Christmas Day, so if you missed out, hop on back to fill in the blanks. That battle is still brewing… Enjoy the ride!
Now remember, we’ve got a battle on the verge of rocking. Marci is tied to a table in her father’s ship, her sister is flying out in space, and the very lives of the faeries are on the line. Mommy is in labor and in big trouble.
What’s gonna happen? Let’s find out!
26 – Susan Rocan – Mother/Birth string
Janelle had heard rumors that ‘the girl who brought us the leaf’ was in trouble. After completing her first round of queenly duties, albeit reluctantly, she now had the chance to slip away and see things for herself. If she could do something to help, she needed to repay her debt.
Heading straight for Marci’s window, she eased the unlocked casement forward just enough to squeeze through into the dark room. It appeared no one was home.
Suddenly, Janelle heard a moan coming from the parents’ room. She peeked in and saw Natalia on the floor beside her bed, holding her huge belly. Understanding dawned and Janelle hurried out the window to the home of an elderly woman down the street. Morana was old enough to remember the before-time, old enough to know the fae folk were not the enemy The Establishment believed them to be. She was also a midwife.
“Sorry to disturb you on this blustery night,” Janelle whispered in Morana’s ear.
The old woman rose, rubbing her arthritic joints. She reached for her glasses on the nightstand and peered at the glowing figure before her.
“What is it, my dear?” Morana asked in creaky voice.
“I need you to help someone in trouble and, please, don’t ask any questions or tell anyone what you’ve done.”
The old woman nodded as Janelle helped her into her cloak. With a few words, Janelle wove a spell into the fabric so Morana would not be seen by the night patrol.
Write a Story with Me is a group endeavor just for the fun of it. A different writer adds a new 250 words each week. It is the ultimate Flash Fiction Challenge!

Kate Johnson —- TAG! You are “It”
I wondered when we would see Janelle again. Obviously she has no knowledge of Marci’s precarious position.
Whew, glad to see Mom is getting some help!

As I was re-reading what I wrote, I think I’ve spelled the fairy’s name wrong. It should be Jenelle, shouldn’t it?
Hmmm. I’d have to go back and check to see who introduced her.
Oh, I like this magic spell weaving stuff. Awesome.
Thanks, Jenny! 🙂
