Do you ever wonder at the creatures in the darkness?
Have you ever seen their eyes glint in the light from the stars?
Would you breathe in their scent as it wafts along with the wind?
Alone in the forest, can you feel their presence all around you?
They sense your shadows, smell your fears, and know your weaknesses.
For the fey are dark apparitions when they desire your blood…
If for no other reason than to stain their hats and teeth
while they savour your cries for help.
