Fairies by ~Eilish on deviantART
Bianca slapped her neck. She hissed as the stinging sensation spread over her skin. Something had whizzed past her and survived.
“What was that?” Bianca asked.
“What was what?” Ming asked.
“That was the third time something flew past me. Always the same spot, too. Mosquitoes don’t do that,” she said.
“Hmph. We’re getting close,” Terrance said.
“Close?” she echoed.
“To the Fairy Realm. The fairies are playing with you. Harmless really, at least for now,” Prince Ferdinand said.
Upon closer inspection Bianca saw a few glowing specks in the distance. She squinted, but her near sightedness prevented her from seeing anything else. She made sure that Terrance or Ferdinand weren’t looking at her. She snuck her hand into the saddle bag and pulled out her glasses. Very quickly she slipped them on and studied her surroundings.
“Wow,” she whispered. She waved at Ming who turned to Bianca and gave her a puzzled look. “Up in the trees.”
A female fairy peeked at Bianca from behind a yellow maple leaf. She was the color of a pale pink rose. She giggled and then flew away. A few more fairies buzzed around them and then vanished into the trees.
