Greetings! This month's theme for our Monthly Simlit short story challenge focuses on the horror genre and it immediately brought me back to a sim couple I submitted for TheSims Sparkd challenge Stylist entry. I grew up watching all of the old school slashers, ghosts and thrillers! I'm hoping to channel in all of that… Continue reading #MonthlySimlitShortStory Challenge: “Honeymoon” (March ‘21)
A very sweet story!
Winter in Hope Valley was a beautiful sight. The snow fell ever so delicately onto the plains of the frontier and coated the quaint little church and schoolhouse in a blanket of soft white flakes. It was a day like any other of the season and the children had gathered to begin their lessons.
Elizabeth Thatcher had moved to the small town to work as a teacher, something her wealthy family didn’t understand. She had many opportunities to teach at more prestigious schools, but she fell in love with the town and it’s residents from the moment she arrived.
The children adored her as well and their lessons with her were something that they always looked forward to.

This is an entry in Lisabee’s Monthly Simlit Short Story Challenge (forum). February’s theme is Fairy Tale. Thank you Lisabee for an awesome challenge as always!
Talia disappeared at the end of summer when they were 15. After a warm season filled with sunny fun, breathless whispers, and sweet kisses, they’d exchanged heart lockets.
Talia began acting weird. She was exhausted all the time. Her temper became short and she cried often. She said she couldn’t talk about it.
Then Talia vanished.
Mizzi was heartbroken.
A year passed and a fresh summer began. Mizzi’s friends helped her heart heal, but she still thought of Talia and wore her heart necklace everyday.
Mizzi wrote in the sand: Talia, where are you?
“Looking for the lost girl?”
A woman wearing a headwrap seemed to appear next to her out of thin air. “A fairy took her.”
Mizzi didn’t believe in…
