Avalon

  Avalon By Keshia Swaim   I stood to stretch my aching back, and wiped at the sweat on my forehead, smearing mud on my face in the process. The sun was already sinking behind the steep slope of the tor. “Isn’t this exciting, Dr. Saunders?” Amiee beamed up from her spot on the ground, where she was carefully cataloging the exact location of the tiny potshards, our only find so far.

  The Beginnings of a Witch By Dana Himrich Once upon a time, a girl walked into a dark forest and never came back out again. Sara hadn’t wanted to go near the woods.
