I alight almost silently, one foot and then the other, casting my glance backward briefly to make sure my arrival has gone undetected.
I should be safe, of course, protected by wings the colour of the blossoms, the slightest flicker of movement easily attributed to the wind in the trees, but I must be certain that I have done nothing to reveal the secrets of our world.
The key is heavy in my hand, but that is as it should be with the key to a kingdom. I am tired, and now that spring is about to give way to summer, I may rest, but first I must pass the key to the one with wings of bright colours, she who slips between wild flowers and floats above meadows. So I shall turn the key and unlock the strongest of bolts and enter Fairyland through the hidden door.
