The Adventures of Prickle and the Fairy- Installment 4 (Prompt: WITCH)
The group had a lovely tea and wonderful conversation (how handy it is when everyone can understand each other). Afterwards, Prickle asked if he could poke around the cottage a bit.
"I'd love to see what's here," he said, looking at the herbs hanging and the various things placed about the small space. It was cozy and homey and the food had made Prickle feel oh so warm and he wasn't quite ready to go back out into the bright sun. Hedgehogs, when they feel safe, can be nosy creatures (in the best way) and are interested in what other folks keep in their homes. You can learn a lot about someone by looking at the things with which folks choose to surround themselves.
As he nosed about, sniffing and looking, he spied something shiny on a table in the far corner of the room. He tried shimmying up two different upholstered stools to gain a better vantage point for viewing, but realized he was going to need assistance if he was going to get close enough for prime viewing capability.
