The Journey of Blue Jax – p.1

October 14, 2011 at 4:07 pm 1 comment

Once upon a time, in a land of green grass and greener skies, there lived a tiny fairy who was not green at all. Little Jax stood only 3 ½ inches tall, but she was tougher than many of the horned hill beasts that roamed the land, and some said even meaner than the stinging fruit moths that only came out at night.

Jax spent much of her time flitting about, looking for nourishing nectar flowers and trying to avoid standing out so much. Being a dark blue fairy in a land of green everything was not an easy life. It was hard for Jax to hide from predators, and even harder to make friends. The other fairies were all striking shades of emerald and jade, and stayed in tight groups for safety and comfort. Jax looked like she’d been dipped in a bottle of India ink, and kept to herself.

Living alone had taught Jax to be able to take care of herself, come what may. She wasn’t afraid and didn’t worry too much about the future, but the one time of year when the weather turned cold was always a challenge. As the first green snowflakes began to fall, the other fairies huddled together in their secret toadstool homes, but Jax had no one to share hers with, and never felt very warm at all.
