starry night meringue

So guess who is going to be in an upcoming chapter? I don’t know why but it makes me all giggly to have him in it…

So here is a smidgen of it

After graduation I found a job working at the art gallery in the south end of Briocheporte. It wasn’t much but it was helping me hedge my way in to maybe one day having my own painting here to displayed and sold. My social circle was also expanding a bit more as I met and hung out during downtime with some of my co-workers. One of my favorites though didn’t work at the gallery; he was one of those bike messengers that you could often see zipping around town on their bicycles, weaving in and out through traffic as if they were invincible. His name was Leaf and he had the unusual tendency to make me laugh as he would whisper witty things about some of the clientele that frequented the gallery every Friday afternoon right after lunch. He had hair that reminded me of the dandelions that would grow back home in the yard and eyes the color of tree bark. All and all he wasn’t that bad looking at all and I honestly felt really flattered that he conversed with me so often. Of course one of my co-workers seemed to think that Leaf had a thing for me since out of everyone there I was the only one that he said more than a few words to before leaving to speed away to another delivery on his bike.

Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat

Call in the spirits, wherever they’re at.

Rap on a table, it’s time to respond

Send us a message from somewhere beyond.

Goblins and ghoulies from last Halloween

Awaken the spirits with your tambourine.

Creepies and crawlies, toads in a pond

Let there be music from regions beyond.

Wizards and witches wherever you dwell

Give us a hint by ringing a bell

I have no clue why but whenever Starry does her magic on an object it just reminds me of the crystal ball part of Disney’s Haunted Mansion ride.
