This is a Too Old for Neverland story.
Summary: All bargains have their price. Written for 100words Prompt #052 – Lost.
Archie was eleven when Peter’s promises and Campana’s songs started him down that long lonely path to the mists of Neverland. He’s still eleven when Wendy wins him free, with a hundred years of childhood behind him.
Archie’s been fighting ever since he realized what Peter’s bargain cost, but it took more than he had to win free and he doesn’t know how to face that failure.
That first sunrise after a century lived in twilight is his tipping point. He’s so quiet and still that Wendy thinks they’ve lost him again…
But when she calls his name, he comes.
