The Journey of Blue Jax – p.5

Jax rounded a bend and looked up. She did not expect to see the other fairies all out of doors, but there were dozens of them, all in a panic. She knew better than to try to talk to any of them, so she relied on her own observation and eavesdropping skills to discover what was going on.

“It’s unthinkable,” wailed a young female fairy with lime-colored hair.

“Tragic, simply tragic,” muttered an older fatherly fairy, tugging nervously on his green-gray beard.

Jax could see that the clawfoot elk had been through the area, as fairies kept tripping over the debris and hoof prints on the ground.

A mother fairy with a babe in each arm yelled, “What will we do now? We’ll all freeze!”

Jax stopped in her tracks and looked around, past the panicking fairies and towards the edges of the clearing. Something was missing, the forest looked odd. Then she realized why; the toadstools had all been trampled. Barely visible among the leaf litter and new snow were mounds and chunks of mushrooms. There would be no chance for new growth unless the weather warmed up considerably, and with the snow still coming down that looked very unlikely. They were all homeless for the winter.

Jax walked slowly to the place where her toadstool had been, away from the others. She was shocked to see it still standing, untouched.
