Guten Morgen, Leute! For today’s Short Story Thursday, I thought that I’d share with you all a piece that I wrote in September of 2016. It’s really, really short but hopefully you’ll find it interesting!
Anika Köhler sits in her room, contemplating all the things that might have been.
“What about goblins? What about fairies?” Anika wondered aloud to no one but herself. It’s lonely when you have nothing but empty walls that will hearken to your call.
In dreams, she dances among the fairies and speaks with the goblins. And then, when morning comes, she’s just plain Anika Köhler, sitting in her bedroom, talking to herself. Just little Anika Köhler who believes she can never amount to anything but soars in her dreams.
The moon smiles down on Anika each night and blows new hope into her sleeping heart. The moon sees much and can comfort some, but when little Anika Köhler is gone, the moon must simply smile and go on, wondering whatever on earth happened to that little Anika Köhler.
Perhaps she joined the fairies too soon.
Hope that this was interesting for you all to read! What was your favorite childhood pastime and what was your favorite childhood fairytale? Vielen Dank und tschüss!
