Title: The Magic in the Mushroom

Angela wandered through the woods mentally reviewing all the things she needed to finish before going to work in the morning. Sometime over the last few weeks, the leaves had changed from green to brown. Now, they’d all fallen from the trees and had created a blanket of crunch under her feet. She could no longer even see the path.

She tilted her head to the side and blinked several times. Nothing in front of her looked familiar. Nothing. How could she have meandered so far off the path? She walked the same path every week. Every part of her day worked like clockwork. With the execution of her careful lists, Nothing was ever out of place.

The hair lifted off the back of her neck and a chill covered her body. She looked down at her toes and noticed a rather large adorable mushroom. Her gaze focused on the center of the fungi and time began to slow until her world went black.

She squeezed her eyes several times and things came back into focus. The familiar path was once again before her but all the leaves were green and back on the trees and that sneaky mushroom was nowhere to be found.
