Snow Cycling (198 Words)

“Do humans really ride on these?”

The fairy, Snowdrop, glanced at her companion as she shook a bag of snow over the lawn. It was the middle of the night and their faces reflected the golden streetlights. Skip, always curious, was looking at a bicycle.

“I’ve seen people ride them,” said Snowdrop. “They balance.”

“How do you balance without wings?” asked Skip.

Snowdrop shook her head. She gave him a snow-shaker. “Hurry or we’ll be here forever. You know we can’t be seen.”

Skip made a face behind her back. “You look so cold, poor thing,” he said to the bike. “I’ll make you a blanket.”
