Where Had That Dog Gone?

Where had that dog gone? I vowed to buy that leash everyone insisted on as I stomped through the woods. Then Max’s desperate whine, intermingled with high-pitched voices, floated on the wind to me. I bolted toward the sound.

Three Pixies flew around Max as his muzzle nudged a fourth who lay on the ground. I dropped to my knees to examine the tiny fae, resisting the urge to swat at the others now hovering around me.

“Don’t hurt her!” they cried.

Ignoring their distrust, I freed the Pixie from a web of discarded plastic.

“Our hero!” they sang.
