Deep in the woods you’re lost. Have you considered if you’ve come upon an enchanted forest? It’s difficult to comprehend when you’ve crossed the threshold from the untamed wild to land of talking animals, pixies, enchantresses, wizards, and magic folk. 

It’s impossible to know after days of wandering whether that deserted cabin in the clearing is actually deserted. But with clarity, you inhale the potent herbs mingling with the scent of roasted venison and fresh bread. 

 Do you believe your eyes when the most sinfully attractive man approaches and offers you a cup to slake your thirst and food to fill your belly? Do you trust your senses? Have you realized yet, you’ve always been in an enchanted forest?

    reminds me of a modernised red riding hood or medieval robin hood, either way the description of that sinfully attractive man defies the boundaries of time.

      Thank you SingleDust. At first “he” was a woman, an “enchantress” but I decided to flip it 🙂 I think it’s interesting to have that “sinfully attractive guy’ play the “enchanter” and the narrator be a woman. I definitely see where the Little Rex Riding Hood vibes come in 🙂

        Mandi I think we both live in these stories and have a deep longing for a sinfully attractive enchanter,and come up with amazing stories inspired by “him” he is safe , we can always put him back into the woods when we want to. Yes I liked the flip, like you I think certain roles should be of a certain gender to give it a better hold over the readers, we have a certain genetic make up that identifies that way.
