Q is for Quickening
Fitting in with the overall theme and feel of my blog, I decided to share a short story with you that takes place in my Faerie world. The Story of the Galno is one that I wrote years ago and recently changed a little as things progressed in other stories (most notably The Adventures of Saphira the Faery Dog). This is part of that original story showing how Faerie came to be the way it is in my modern-day novels. (Part one can be read here.) I hope you enjoy this story about the awakening (quickening) of Faerie.

The Dark King stood on the highest balcony of his castle. Across from his snow covered realm he could see Avalon. Black skies stretched as far as he could see. And he could see very far.
Hiding in their trees, under rocks and in camouflage as they ran across fields of blood red poppies, Fae of every creed were trying to hide from the Seelie Queen’s anguish.
