Rating/Warnings: PG-13
Summary: Written for the 55 Word Challenge: Week Twenty-one written to the prompt of this painting of a fish-eyed goldfish pond and the prompt of ‘Time Warp.’ (For very loose values of Time Warp.) Honorable mention! Woot! ๐Ÿ˜€

Fae eyes are full of death and I saw mine reflected there: the lily pond, the startled koi, my mother’s screams as kelpies dragged me under– for a moment I tasted brackish water, lost in the vision.

But that death was years ago, not years to come, and this time my sword arm didn’t falter.
