Illustration for author Robert Carlysle's flash fiction 'A Fairy's Tale' by illustrator Allen Forrest

“I have always felt that the view that I was wicked or bad was unfair. Rather, I would say I was firm, sensitive of my honour if you will. I have never been prepared to accept insults from anyone, no matter how grand they might be. That had given me a certain, shall we say, reputation but so what?

The planned celebrations for the christening had been anticipated far and wide. Yet no invitation was forthcoming for me.

Naturally I cursed the child. There have to be consequences, after all.”
