My contribution to this week’s Friday Fictioneers hosted by Madison Woods. The idea is to write a story in 100 words, using a picture prompt. Then, a link to your story is posted in the Comments section of the following page on Madison’s blog:

The collective gasp from the faeries sounded like a breath of wind; Alemin flew, his wings on fire, to the faerie court.
‘Mortals! Mortals!’ Alemin wheezed, ‘Found the teeth.’
The faerie queen grinned, her mouth glittering greenly, ‘Hah! Make sure you mark them – we’ll take the child and leave a changeling.’
