Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.This week, the chosen word is "Faeries." Now, I don't know a ton about them, even though they are my wife's favorite mythical being, so this might be hard for me, as I have to please her as well. Enjoy!

There, protected against the predations of Man, they weave wonders in the night that we find in the coming morn, for they are the mist-forgers and fog-tamers who bring down the waters of the sky--much to our delight and wonder.
So, not all that is a-glitter in the dark, as with everything in our world, is quite what it seems.
