    Summary

    I can imagine how it must have happened, for it has happened to me, also. It has happened to almost every girl and woman in our village, for everyone, at some point, visits the glen. It is an ideal place for girls to play, young women to fetch water, mothers to clean clothes, older women to remember.

    But she was not a village girl, neither a working young woman, and she never had the chance to become a mother or to grow old and remember. So why did she do it?

    Let me tell you about Jeanie.

    Summary

    Find a fairy ring. Bring an offering. Cakes work best, or bread in a pinch - something you’ve made yourself. Don’t wear any iron or wards; that’ll only piss them off. Call out your intent three times. Don’t expect to like what you find, and for god’s sake - be careful.

    Summary

    I have fruit that shatters like glass and fruit that must be spooned up like pudding, fruit that tastes like caramel and fruit that tastes like roasted meat, fruit that glitters and fruit so translucent you can see your fingers through it and fruit that glows golden at twilight, fruit like silver coins and monstrous hands and autumn fog, fruit that loses all its flavor unless you eat it straight off the tree as it tries to coil around your tongue.

    Summary

    She doesn't know where this feeling came from ... except, perhaps, that it might always have been there, under the surface.

    She cannot remember her own name - but that no longer matters to her. Nothing matters but her.
