The little house shook with her shriek.
The wooden door swung open so forcefully that the squirrel in question toppled off the front steps in shock.
“Explain. This. Now.”
“They said you’re not supposed to attract attention, so they undid your magic,” the squirrel mumbled, refusing to raise his eyes to the angry fairy.
And she was livid, as she glared at her shabby hut. Yesterday, her house was bursting with colorful vines entwined on the brick walls. Today, it was barely standing, supported by cracked gray rocks.
“Squirrel, I think it’s time I bring the attention to them.”
