The past is not just a memory (Friday Fictioneers)

It’s peaceful out here. Time slows, breathes deeper as I walk in silence. It’s been years. Everything looks a little bit smaller to my grown-up eyes. Still, I find the secret place exactly where I remember it to be. The half-moon carved into the white tree. Kneeling, I search for the ring of mushrooms. I clear them off, tiny flicks of my fingers and peer up. The sun is setting. Damp earth clings to my knees as I stand. Not long now.

As darkness falls, I hold my breath. A flicker, then more. Gossamer wings soon surround me. I’m home.
