Her Fairy Tale


“The barista shook his head. That hedge couldn’t have moved closer overnight. Could it?”

Everyone felt that the hedge was definitely closer to the writer's home.

They noticed that the tall golden statue of a gentleman near the hedge was missing, which some suspected was an expert thief's handiwork.

The writer was not in her home and there was no sign of any theft, apart from the missing golden statue.

What no one knew was that the statue had come to life in the moonlit night and as it was not in its place, the hedge appeared closer.

The writer's fairy tale had come true and she lived happily ever after with her ex-statue beau!

    1. Yes, her fairy tale came true with the statue turning into flesh-and-blood.
      The statue was near the hedge and the absence of the statue (when it came alive) made the hedge appear to be closer to the writer's home. Wanted to show 'optical illusion' with the hedge. Our eyes make us believe something which is not!
