Nighttime Reveler

Leisel. Her whispered name pulled her into wakefulness.

She was laying on her back in an empty, frost-covered field. Pain like thousands of needles shot through her fingers and toes, which were bare. Gingerly she sat up, looking down in bewilderment at her torn party dress, its colors looking dull in the faint morning light.

How did I get here? The words echoed in her head and she winced as though someone had shouted.

Gradually, flashes from the previous night filtered into her mind.

The swirl of elegant gowns, tinkling music, bell-like laughter…her head spun. Why couldn’t she remember?

  1. Sounds like she’s been dancing with the faerie folk 🙂 I wonder if it’s the same year it was “yesterday” – I hear time can pass very quickly during “The Dance”.

    1. It’s difficult to say…I think her first issue would to be get out of that frost and into some warm clothes! But I think it is definitely safe to assume she was dancing with the Fair Folk….thanks for reading!

Tell me what you think!
