Fairy Tails Are Real-Grim Tales

I followed her through the woods my bear dragging behind me as she
giggled and twirled her red dress. Her red hair blazing like a wildfire
in the winter of New Hampshire Idoa. I wanted to play with her, she was
the first person I meet that my mother didn't yell at me for playing
with. Today no more. I wanted to have a friend not play by myself. I
picked up Mr. Brownie and hugged him tightly against my chest as I ran
faster, I was tired but didn't stop as she giggled and waved for me to
follow. I gazed in amazement as she looked like she was floating, like
she had wings as I blinked a couple of times to make sure. She finally
stopped as I ran up to catch my breath. She has on no shoes her pale
feet looked invisible in the snow as I took off my coat and offered it
to her. She shook her head and shoved it back with a playful giggles. We
were at a spring and unfrozen spring. I never been here before as I
took a closer look, the water wasn't frozen but full of life but I
didn't care I wanted to play with my new friend.
“ What do you
want to play?” I asked as I placed Mr. Brownie down on floor by a near
by tree and walked over to her, she placed her little finger on her
chin, her freckles clear on her face as she said
“ Let’s play how long can you hold your breath “ she said.
looked at her confused it didn't sound like a fun game as she took my
hand and we got closer to the pound that's when I felt a shove. I lost
my balance and fell into the icy cold water. It hit me hard as I floated
back to the top my teeth chattering. I was angry now and cold as I
looked at her, to see a boy next to her his hair also red he laughed
and pointed at me.
“ Ha ha I got you!” he laughed. I said nothing as climbed out and shouted
“ Why did you do that for!” the boy stopped laughing as he walked up to me a smug look on his face.
“ Silly little human, whose flesh is so tasty. You better leave this place or trouble will follow.” he said in a song like voice.
I looked at him not sure what to say as the red headed girl that lead me here sang
“ You don't have much time he already knows you're here. The kelpie is hungry you better stay clear”
I looked at them both, they were twins their eyes sparkling with cruelty and I struggled to get up as I held up my hand.
Help guys,” I pleaded my hand shaking with the cold as I tryed to sand
up to get on my feet. I was so cold, they looked at one another and
laughed and began to sing again
“ Silly little human, you
have no friends here you see. Your mother says we're not real, what a
foolish little mother. Now he's going to lose you the child she hold
dear. You better hold your breath because here he comes. His first main
course and you're the full course meal.....”
I didn't have
time to scream as I was dragged under water and something black with red
eyes faced me, I opened my mouth to scream but nothing came out. His
black hair wrapped around me as he dragged me underwater. I looked up to
see the twins blurry faces, I wanted to scream to cry for help, as
water filled my lungs and my heart began to hammer in my chest.
“There's no such things as Kelpies or fairies....fairy tails are not real “ My mother words echoed in my head as the world around me grew darker.
“There is no happy ending in this world, no elves or pixie dust. There's no such thing “ My mother said again as my eyes began to get heavy now.
“ Your mother is a fool ….” it said to me, its dark red eyes looking at me hungrily
“ We do exist, We were never just fairy tales...”
The darkness washed over me.
