The Unicorn Child


In the darkness, there is one who comes,


who whispers the most terrifying things in her ear.




And, as the tears fall, the Shadowy One collects them one by one,




for unicorn tears hold a powerful magic.

What a thrill. Mel makes a new post!

Nice one, Mel. Such a big story in so few words. And The Shadowy One looks really nasty. My heart goes out to the young lady in distress, as ever.
