Bat Wings and Broomsticks
The Foxfire Chronicles is a unique fantasy series where nothing is as it seems. Between twists and turns there are secrets and revelations -- but only if you cling to your memories.
A Note From The Author
I love Holiday-themed stories (as you can probably guess from my Snowflake Triplet series), which is one of the reasons that I wrote this short story. The other reason is that I wanted to write more about one of my favorite Foxfire characters, Ikuro.
This short was very fun to write, and I loved putting together the cover, too. I can't say whether or not the short will make it into the renewed Foxfire Chronicles, but you never know!
Ikuro the Biryo has arrived on Earth from his home planet to stumble upon a strange celebration - something called Halloween. Befriending a young girl, Gracie, who is abandoned by her brother while trick or treating, Ikuro begins to teach her the importance of being different, and in turn learns the meaning of the holiday...and also the significance of letting go.
Taking place just before the events in Shadows of Past Memories, 'Bat Wings and Broomsticks' is both a heartwarming Halloween story, and a treat for Foxfire Chronicles fans.
