A true elfin story (short story by Stella, oh, Stella)

In October 2015 I have created my blog. That year I only published three posts. This short story is the very first that I published in November 2015 (even before the German version). Nobody read it then. Five bloggers liked the German version. Two of them are still around, but three of them have more or less disappeared from WordPress. I would like to post the story once again here. Don’t worry, this is a once only happening and will not be done with all old posts. 😉 😊 This story “came” to me, undoubtedly inspired by the decoration of a small part of my then garden (no. 5).

I do plan to translate more of my earlier short stories though …

  1. what a great post!!! what a coincidence that I just read another blogger’s post asking for people’s views on this very thing. I have no problem with them, as it’s so easy to overlook earlier posts on a site, especially on ones with many posts. Occasionally I’ve taken mine & updated them.

  2. & here I must comment again – I was so captivated by the story that I forgot to congratulate you on your anniversary! 4 years is quite a wonderful accomplishment!
