    Summary

    All the stories warn against going into the woods, warn about creatures hiding there. They say there are lilting voices singing from the shadows, promising glittering daydreams with sharp teeth. They say the creatures there will take you far away to never be seen again.

    There was a boy, the village whisperers, safely in the circle of light, glancing over their shoulders at the trees beyond it. There was a boy who strayed too far.

    They say you can still hear his laughter as it’s carried on a breeze, bright and wild, like youth frozen in amber, like ghosts falling delicate from the branches.

    (Strange things happen to boys who linger too long beyond the veil. Magic infects like a disease, like rot, eating away everything human that lingers, until his eyes are an unbroken summer sky blue and there are flowers in his hair and he sings with a voice that haunts the shadows.)

    (Here is our story: A boy goes home.)

    Summary

    His eyes found the crowd, searching the stands and where some of them had filed down the stairs on to the field to celebrate. His spirit dulled, the corners of his lips falling, as he failed to spot a pink head of hair, or a green hat, or a specific set of brown curls. 

    So, they hadn’t made it.

    It didn’t bother him. Really, it didn’t.

    Or,

    Tommy has it all—good friends, good grades, an amazing team, and a chance at being state champions. He doesn't need his family.

    At least, it seems like they don't need him.

    Summary

    The sender, whoever they are, clearly has the wrong number. The intended recipient— Dream plays it again— Wilbur, must’ve changed their number, or the sender must’ve made a mistake.
    Either way, it shouldn’t be Dream’s problem. It’s not his problem. He stares at the message a second longer before pressing delete.

    -
    Tommy has been calling his dead brother. Dream’s new phone receives a voicemail.

    Summary

    Tommy knew he wasn’t in the position of raising a kid. He was seventeen, hardly took care of himself, and didn’t even like children. But, when a small, spider-hybrid boy runs up to you and won’t stop following you around, how are you supposed to say no to that?
