Kimberly Gould’s Picture Choice:

Title: Catch Me If You Can

Curse the girl!

Bertram splashed through water to his knee, picking his path carefully to avoid falling in to his neck. The sound of laughter and more splashing ahead urged him on, keeping close to the mangroves and their roots.

When he caught her, he would clip her wings, leash her to his hitching post and never let her out of his sight again.

“Come, come, Bertram. I’m right here. Don’t you want your wish?”

He took four quick paces, falling into the water on the last. There was no use in trying to hurry.

“You’d best keep running, fairy.”

Her laughter echoed. “Okay. Let’s run.”

Blinded by a bright flash, Bertram raised his arm to cover his eyes. Unable to see, he could smell the difference resulting from the fairy’s magic. There was no longer the stink of water, rot and decay. No, fresh cut grass filled his nose and he heard a whinny that he thought had to come from a horse.

“Find me!” She called from within the corral.

He would hitch her indeed.
