Friday Fictioneers: Aurora

Aurora

I was enjoying the sunshine when he found me.

“Hold up.”

I paused, one foot extended into the crosswalk. “Who said that?”

“Over here.” It was Shadowman, my nemesis. He was crouching in the azaleas. “What did you do?”

“Huh? I didn’t ‘do’ anything,” I said.

Shadowman raised an eyebrow. “You can drop the innocent facade, Serena. Or should I say… Aurora?”

I gasped. “Who told you? I was so careful.”

“Not important. Tell me how you caused this.” He swept a hand through the air.

“Can you be more specific?”

“The sunshine, Aurora! It’s the middle of the night!”

The Secret Ingredient

“Oh nononono.” I raise my hands and back away. “That’s not what I signed up for!”

Marley thrusts the bucket in my face. “You wanted to learn my mead recipe, didn’t ya?”

“Well, yes, but–”

“And mead comes from honey!”

“Yes, I know that, but–”

“And honey comes from bees, you tomfool pansy little boy!” On the word bees, he whacks me with the bucket. “Now get out there and collect some honey.”

I scan the field where giant horse-sized bees browse the flowers.

I chant under my breath, preparing to sprint. “Think of the mead. Think of the mead.”
