This love story is written in the format of poetry and fantasy. Fancy is a fairy and Adriaan is an elf. Fancy is the fruit of a thought of a being, living on a flower. She can feel but not think. Adriaan is an elf born in the forest living in a tree. He can think but not feel.
Fancy begins to fly away from her origin. Adriaan wishes to move away from the tree too but no matter how many times he tries and thinks, he cannot find a way.
“His Thoughts, Rather than Helping Him, Created More Walls Around Him”
As Fancy flies around testing her wings, she flies closer to the middle of the forest and finds a tree that Adriaan has been stuck in. As they meet they fall in love. Here is where the magic happens. She can then feel what he is thinking, and he can then think what she is feeling.
This is a beautiful love story. The type you wish to read over again just so you too, can start flying like Fancy and find that wonderful Adriaan.
The setting of the story is magical and full of mysterious yet enchanting moments of extraordinarily written literature. The poetic touch in the story adds to its hypnotizing effect, and it really steals you away from whatever is previously on your mind.
I liked the separated sentences as well. It gave me time to think about what I just read before reading the next. I think that was a smart touch by the author.
The book is so nicely done that you can use many of its phrases as inspirational love quotes.
I highly recommend this short story to anyone that still believes in love its eternal effect on the human being.
