door in the tree

“I don’t hear you!!” Few beings in the universe can stamp their feet quite as loudly a 6-year-old girl, especially the 6-going-on-106 sort. Fewer being still can see the hidden beckon embraced within a tree. Ellianne had. A week, now. Every day, as day greeted evening, she passed by, swinging the stick-prod for the slower cows. Today, she defied the door, emboldened by defying her father. Today, she wouldn’t listen to the songs. Today she struck the warm ivy cloak. Today, knobby hands snatched her through. The door smacked its lips and disappeared.

About suzanawylie

Suzana Wylie is the not-very-pseudo pseudonym of Susan Wylie Wilson, because let's face it, there are lots of Susan Wilsons around, and as an author, I want readers to find ME and not the bazillions of others. I've been writing all my life - since I learned to hold a pencil anyway - and can't NOT write. Other people have to breathe to live; I have to write.
