As I set my easel against the wall, my heart somersaults when I feel a gentle tug on my hair. Long blonde locks litter the tower floor, spilling over the window sill. Nothing else to indicate a visitor though. No hooves galloping in the distance, nor any piercing, beastly roars echoing in the night. Only silence couples the crackles of the fire. Nevertheless, the pull was unmistakable.Continue reading “Deliverance by Nola Prevost”

I’d tried it once before, in middle school where you could borrow the audio versions of certain books and listen to them, but I always had to rewind and rewind and rewind until I just got sick of it.
