Georgia’s Tea Party by Ch’kara SilverWolf

I wrote this story for Georgia who was ill at the time.  Her aunty had told me she loved faeries and purple, and so the story unfolded.

Georgia’s Tea Party

One bright sunny day Georgia was playing in her garden with her cat Jasmin.  She had made a cubby house near the big tree with one of her mother’s big purple sheets.  She draped it like a tent with her dad’s help and inside she had scattered some pillows around to sit on.  In the center was her tea set.

Georgia’s mother Kerri came down to the cubby with her little brother Blake and Georgia invited them to tea.  She formally sat them on cushions and made them comfortable, and then she bowed to them.  Today she was wearing her beautiful lilac faerie dress with soft satin slippers.  Her hair softly framing her face and big beautiful eyes.

Kerri and Blake settled into the cushions, Jasmin the cat was curled up asleep on a large cushion looking like a princess.  Georgia began to serve them afternoon tea when all of a sudden she saw a tiny little girl with dark curls and beautiful violet eyes.  She was wearing a rainbow colored dress, but what amazed Georgia the most were the wings coming from her back, they were beautiful.  Georgia could see through them and they seemed to be a golden color.

The little girl smiled and said “Hello Georgia, my name is Liselle, my friends and I were wondering if we might come to tea.”

“Where did you come from” said Georgia “and where are your friends, of course you can come to tea” the words tumbling out of her mouth quickly.

“Oh, we are Faeries, we live here all the time.”  Liselle waved her hand and all of sudden little lights seemed to blink everywhere and then they were surrounded by Faeries.  Georgia looked around in awe.

“Oh, how wonderful, can you see them mummy, oh aren’t they beautiful.”

“See what” said Kerri.  Georgia looked at Liselle and asked why her mother couldn’t see them.  Her little brother Blake had several Faeries and Elves sitting with him and playing.

“It’s very sad” said Liselle “but most grownups have allowed themselves to forget us.  Your mother had friends in the Faerie Realm when she was little like you, but she let her world turn her mind away.  If she begins to trust again in the magic and joy of life then her ability to see us may return.”

Georgia told her mother what Liselle had said and Kerri smiled and welcomed them to tea even though she could not see them.  Jasmin woke up with Faeries sitting on her back and grooming her fur, for cats can see all beings from the other realms.

They had a lovely tea party and played lots of games.  Georgia told Liselle and her new friends that she would soon be starting school and how excited she was.  There would be so many new and wonderful things to learn.

“Please don’t forget us Georgia, we will be always here and we would ever so like to hear about your school days.  We go to school in our world too, we learn from the trees and plants, and from the birds and animals.  And we gain wisdom and knowledge from the oldest Faerie, Janora.”

“How do you learn from trees, and animals?” said Georgia.

“Janora tells us that all trees, plants, birds and animals are living things and all living things can communicate with you.  When you hear the wind blowing through the trees you can hear their music.  The animals show their love for you and talk through touch.  Jasmin talks to you all the time.  There is much beauty in your world if you listen for it.”

“Oh I will,” said Georgia “thank you for telling me how.  What a lovely day we are having.   Will you come to tea again?”

“Yes, we would like that very much, we must go now.   Thank you for a lovely day.”  All the other Faeries and Elves said thank you and waved good bye and disappeared.  Blake laughed and clapped his hands in delight and Jasmin purred and curled up and went to sleep again.

“Oh mummy what a lovely day we have had, I hope that you can see my friends one day.”

Kerri smiled at Georgia, and secretly hoped that one day she would.

The Magikal Wizard of Teeth

Many years ago I found myself sitting in the dentist waiting room listening to the sounds and this story popped into my head.  To this day my dentist has this up in his waiting room.  Hope you enjoy it.

The Magikal Wizard of Teeth

By Ch’kara SilverWolf

As I sit here awaiting my appointment.  I listen to the sound of the drill in the other room.  I know the drill awaits me and my tooth, and the dentist will use his magikal powers so there will be no pain.

I have become used to sitting in the magikal chair nearly turned upside down, mouth wide open, eyes closed, wondering what will happen next.

My tooth and I had become good friends.  Then one day it began to ache.  At first, I thought it was just saying hello, but later that night it began to smart, and each time I touched it the pain would shoot into my face.

So off I went to the magician of teeth, the amazing Dr Gregory.  My special tooth, or at least part of it, is going to continue to live with me, with the aide of the magician.

The dental Faeries go about their duties calmly.  Melissa is always there with her welcoming smile as you enter the magikal realm of teeth.  Emily sits calmly beside you as you lay turned upside down, quietly handing the magikal instruments to the wizard.

As I sit here waiting, I know soon it will be my turn.  Time for the wizard to weave more of his magik.

My tooth and I only have two more visits to go in this magikal realm, then off we go into the world for more adventures.
