Knock! Knock! Who’s there?

Photo by Louise Bunting of The Storyteller’s Abode

As Phoebe watched the rain fell pitter patter on her window, she wished her parents would return soon. She didn’t like to be home alone, but she had to. She told herself to be brave. However, the lightning had made the trees outside looked like monsters. She pulled her blanket over her head and prayed.


Just then, there were some knocks on the windowpane. As she was peeping out of her blanket, the lightning flashed and the thunder roared. She saw a scary figure outside her window. She screamed and held her blanket tighter.

Soon, the rain stopped. She lifted her blanket slowly. The figure was still there! But it had become smaller! Much smaller!

She stood up and walked towards her window. There she saw an angry little fairy, drenched!

  1. I just love fairy tales and this was a cute, suspenseful fairy tale! Poor little fairy got drenched, no wonder she was angry! LOL! (I still can’t figure out how this story relates to the photo prompt, please enlighten me). Cute story and thank you for participating in FFfAW challenge!

  2. Oh no, I feel how scared she is! And what a thing to see outside your window, an angry fairy, uh-oh. I guess if it’s angry, it’s a good idea it couldn’t get inside! Now all she has to do is never leave her house Uh-oh. πŸ˜‰
