Meanwhile, Barbra had sat down on her Magic Throne.

She  had once conjured the Throne according to a model she had seen in a magazine featuring antique furniture, and it had become such an ornate piece, with much scrollwork, a real piece of art.
She was sitting there now, with the Crystal ball resting on a magic stand in the middle of the table in front of her.
Bub himself was  sitting in a corner of the bubble  -yes, soap bubbles can have corners! –   and saw with increasing fear how Barbra was staring at him, opening her eyes wider and wider until they looked   gigantic and ominous.

Then she started moving her hands in his direction and embracing the ball with her ten green crooked fingers.

  2. What a wonderful story Miki.
    As go along reading it I see an image of parents reading it to their children at night before they go to sleep.

    This tradition of the bed time story is lost to many families.

    Perhaps the comments as we follow your story along will ignite natures art of story telling to our children again. That is what is missing in the family unit today.

    Go to any indigenous culture or tribe and you will find that these people, who live outside the modern world; in the forests and the caves that can be found in almost any country in the world sit together in the morning around their fires telling stories of their dreams.
