A modern fairytale full of dark twists, set against the background of a race from France to Holland. It starts to look like no return from the shining lands is possible. Is there hope? More
"Come away, oh human child, to the waters and the wild. Take a fairy by the hand, for the world's more full of weeping than you can understand."
Eat or drink nothing within the fey world. Nothing. Take no matter, no thing, from the kind kingdom. No flowers. No jewels. No cloth. Not one stick. Not one pebble. Not one atom. Take only your memories and the wise and kindly tales you hear.
Should you break either rule, you will never return to us. They will not let you go.
Lastly... If you return and find yourself, in our good green fields again, the shining ones may offer you a gift. It will be dangerous to accept, and hazardous to refuse. The choice, yours.
