I think reading The Secret Garden has gotten me in the mood to explore fairy tales again. And I’ve wanted to pick up this story to finish for quite some time.

Things Accomplished in Fiction: Catharine tries to figure out if Telis is telling her the truth, or if he’s just a plain idiot. He helps her find her true voice once again, but the dangerous villagers come back to the forefront again.
Not quite sure if I want to leave this story as is. I’m never entirely sure with stories that end on a sad note, and it’s not something I do all the time. However for this piece, I feel like it’s almost necessary for the message to get across. Not all fairy tales end with a “Happily Ever After” after all.
