A Tale of Two Mornings

by Ari Collins

Every morning before work, Cinde met the troll in a warehouse outside the forbidden woods. Once, while undressing, she asked, "Don't the city's daylight eyes scare you?"

"No," his trolley-brake voice answered, "it's the forest's day I fear, when the willows awaken. They cry themselves to sleep at dusk, guilt-ridden. Then it's safe."
