Chapter 1.2

After a couple weeks, we were settling nicely in Moonlight Falls.  We fit in here.  It’s great.

While on my way to the alchemy shop, I ran into Marigold.  We were best friends back in the orphanage.  I missed her so much!  Even though Victor and I were now living in a Supernatural town, I had yet to run into any.  Then MARIGOLD!  It was nice to see another fairy.  So nice, that we stopped in the middle of the road to play fairy games and talk about our wing colors and to talk about flowers.

Finally, I made it to the alchemy shop.  My potions still are not selling.  Hilda says I need to use better and more rare ingredients.

But it’s still early spring and many of plants are still dormant.  It sucks because Victor is still working so hard and getting promoted at the school and I can’t even sell a stupid Vial of Bliss for more that $15!

As soon as I got home I set to work in the basement.  I cleared out all of our old furniture and donated it to charity.  Then I went to the home improvement store and got some planters.  I am going to make us money no matter what.  Victor needs a break!

Within a few days I had some small buds.  Since I only had six plants it didn’t take too long to care for them.  Hopefully, I will be able to make some money for us now!

“Hey, Liddy!”

“Victor!  You’re ho–ACK!  What was that!?”

“Nothing much…just a love charm…”

“Oh…huh.  I am feeling more amorous.  Would you like to take advantage of the effects of your magic?”

Yeah, even after all this time we still have fun.  This is why I love Victor so much.  He always keeps me on my toes!

It was a couple days later though that I started to get worried about Victor’s love charm…

Chapter 1.1

Hiya!  I’m Lydia.  Don’t ever call me that!  My friends call me Liddy and I want you to call me that, too.  I grew up in Appaloosa Plains with my dad Basil.  I never met my mom Morgan but my dad says she was an evil witch ( my word, not his) of a woman.  My dad was a human and since I’m a fairy I guess my mom must have been one, too.  That’s about all I know about her though.  She gave birth to me and before the ink was even dry on my birth certificate she was gone.

For as much fun as I have as a fairy, there is one really awful thing.  I live a really, REALLY long life.  Most people I talk to don’t see why that is a curse.  Unfortunately, I outlive everyone I love.  By the time I turned 10-year-old, my father had aged 50 years.  He died three weeks before my eleventh birthday.  Since I aged so slowly and everyone else aged normally, my father’s friends and family had all passed away, too.  Some nice social worker came and collected me and took me to the orphanage.

It wasn’t all bad at the orphanage, though.  It’s where I met Victor.  Victor is now my boyfriend.  He is also 83 years younger than me.  Weird, huh?!  We look the same age but it’s only because I am a fairy.  Victor is nearing middle age, which is sad because it means I will outlive him, too.

Victor is also a witch.  Did I mention the orphanage was for “otherworldly” kids?  Yeah, it was pretty awesome.  So anyway, enough about that.

When we were old enough, Victor and I moved to Moonlight Falls.  We heard that they were more accepting of supernatural folk there.  Victor and I live together in a pretty normal house.  Upstairs there are a couple bedrooms, an office, and a game room.

Our basement is full of old stuff that we collected from consignment shops.

Oh, and the basement has a secret passage to my alchemy lab.  I am currently a level 5 alchemist.  I am trying to make living doing it but it’s not going so well.  Don’t tell Victor!  He’s working really hard as a teacher and I want to pull my own weight, too.

So anyway, that’s our life right now.  I promise not to ramble so much next time.  And I won’t be so formal.  I just really wanted you to get to know us.  Maybe I will even let Victor talk from time to time.  Who knows.  Well, bye!
