VisDare 112

The monsters had all been defeated, and the Lady wanted to play. It was her birthday, after all, and the real Queen had made her Queen for the day. The sun sparkled on the quartz in the stone, waking the fairies, as the Lady and her closest companions, Sir Knight of Next Door and the Princess of the Courtyard, darted through the secret tunnels to the Party Room. On any other day, the secret tunnels would have been too scary, inhabited as they were by gremlins and goblins, but the monsters were gone and the fairies were awake. Nothing could hurt the Lady on a day like this, and nothing could hurt her companions. When the Lady was older, she would remember darker days and greater pleasures, but no day quite as marvelous as the day the fairies guided her to the Party Room through the secret tunnels.
