A Strange Day Indeed (Lyr#19)

This is Part 19 of an on-going serial I’m writing called, “Lyr the Enchanter”. To read the story from the beginning, you can find the story index, here.


Walking through the underworld with my estranged wife beside me, on our way to visit her kingly father in his otherworld kingdom, where he was holding our son – a child I hadn’t known existed until a few hours previously, even though he was nearly ten years old – was giving my day a surreal bent.

So I thought nothing of it when my vision started blurring at the edges. Then I was falling, falling…and it was too late.

Lyr, you cannot ignore me. I’m far too strong. I won’t be denied. You must meet me, at the lane, at high noon, three days from now, or you will come to regret it.

Before my eyes, I saw the image of a cobbled lane, with ancient walls lining either side. I didn’t think I knew the place, and yet it felt strangely familiar.

“Who are you?”

You know. But if you don’t, you will soon enough.

  1. Wo-hoo, who is this talking to Lyr in his dream-vision? Perhaps you intend to tell me tomorrow. 🙂 🙂 🙂
    I do like how to weave your story through the prompts. And there’s now sameness to those prompts Although I have been told gates and path might be more frequent than other features.
