Midnight Magic | McKenzie Richardson

The old crone smiles down at the man before her, although she does not much like being called an old crone.

Sparkling blue wisps of magic, like berry-dyed mists, sweep around them, stirring the airborne snowflakes that reflect the winter moon.

She advises him not to think of it as a curse, but rather a gift. It’s all about perspective after all. In time he will grow to understand her words.

Then, with a final twitch of her head, she is gone, leaving the prince alone in the forest. It is now up to him to decide his own fate.
