My life has been on fire. Quite literally. Two of my younger sisters lost their homes to house fires this past week (fires are common during a dry and windy winter in the midwest) in separate incidents and I’ve been extending as much help towards them as possible. They’re all safe, no casualties thankfully! I’m hoping they’re back on their feet soon. That said, my reading and TV watch list have been at an all time low. They’re usually down during the school semester anyway, but this is an all new low. So let’s talk books, shows, and my 2018 reading challenge!
Once there was a little girl who played her music for a little boy in the wood. She was small and dark, he was tall and fair, and the two of them made a fancy pair as they danced together, dancing to the music the little girl heard in her head.
Her grandmother had told her to beware the wolves that prowled in the wood, but the little girl knew the little boy was not dangerous, even if he was the king of the goblins.
Will you marry me, Elisabeth? the little boy asked, and the little girl did not wonder at how he knew her name.
Oh, she replied, but I am too young to marry.
Then I will wait, the little boy said. I will wait as long as you remember.
And the little girl laughed as she danced with the Goblin King, the little boy who was always just a little older, a little out of reach.
