Written for the Friday Fictioneers. A story about princes and dogs begins after the photo.
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Humor
“I am Sagewind, Knight Esquire to Queen Beel’s Faerie Court,” said the dog in the tree.
A talking dog? Curious, Alexa just went with it. “Ooookay. Why are you here?”
“Your son, Timmy, is a Faerie Prince.”
“Do you recall a vivid dream? A beautiful man visited your bed?”
Alexa gaped. She was pregnant days later. “That was real?”
“Indeed, the Faerie Prince’s indiscretions are infamous. I requested a corporeal form of loyalty and courage, to guard your princeling.”
“You’re a dog.”
“Minor setback! I am a warrior of substantial skill.”
“Now, would you mind awfully, helping me down?”
