Guardian Angel

They chased the woman away from the hilltop. A marking of stones made the hilltop different from the other slopes in Moontown.

She came from the woods, her hair deserving of jewels and her face as sad as a dying tulip.

She came once a year, despite the rocks and sticks brandished at her, risking it all to touch the stone marking before she fled.

On the single day the woman did not come, a demon rose. The sun witnessed the town crumble.

In a nearby field a sheep grazed. A wolf watched it; a guardian in another form.

  1. Is there a special connection between this piece and the name of the hilltop, Moontown?

    Did the woman only need to come once a year to touch the stone marking to stop the demon being released, nothing more? How come she didn’t just come at night while everyone was a sleep so she wouldn’t be attacked?

  2. Howdy, I think your blog could be having web browser compatibility problems. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, excellent blog!
