A Magical Adventure

Beyond The Treetops

by Begin Again


The two young adventurers climbed higher than they'd ever been before, past the treetops.

Exhausted, they'd shared lunch and then napped.

Lilly's spirit drifted to a special place, hidden beyond the snowcaps. She bubbled with excitement when Trevor stirred. He wiped away the sleep while she babbled wildly.

"It was magical. A glistening white castle nestled beneath billowing clouds. A fairy danced around the fire. Rainbow-colored birds fluttered everywhere.

Trevor scoffed. "A fantasy."

"Oh, and Pierre."


"A majestic bird with iridescent wings welcomed me."

"Wasn't real, Lilly."

Smiling, she pointed, "Wasn't it?"

A celestial bird soared high above.
