Home Delivery

Good morning, I brought your groceries! I’m the new delivery boy. Don’t worry, I’m very good, I didn’t eat anything on the way over. I didn’t even lick ‘em. And I picked the brightest apples and the freshest pears. And I washed my paws before touching anything. I’m real good. Same again tomorrow? Of course, … Continue reading Home Delivery

Pocket Guides

Pocket guides (for mages, that is, I don’t have pockets) sure are handy for familiars. It saves me lugging a great big tome on my gathering trips through the forest. But honestly, it hasn’t done much to boost my confidence... I need a mushroom. Red cap, white spots. There are several. One sort helps cure … Continue reading Pocket Guides

Oh, it’ll wear off in an hour or two, I know, and at least the fluff is soft. It’s a harmless joke and … Continue reading New Coat

Now I’m enjoying seeing all the little things, like the patterns in leaves or the sharp edges in grass. I’d never noticed the texture of the fabric of my hat, … Continue reading Eye Opener

Windwheat

I did it, haha! I can fly! They said even the smallest brooms would be far too big for me, so I made my own! It took a little work, but it doesn’t have much to carry. One dry wheat stem can zip through the air like a dart, carrying me across the fields and … Continue reading Windwheat
