Pixies are usually invisible too, and they’re
all around us right now.
Sure, or so the presence of this ring would indicate.
It functions as an entry point to a fairyländ plane.
Like… a bubble of fairy space on the surface of a pond.
The pond represents this forest in my metaphor. Do you get it?
When he stepped in the circle, did it …was he killed?
Goodness no! I’m sure he’s perfectly fine. He was just pulled
inside the fairy bubble, which makes him invisible to our eyes.
Can he get out?
Not on his own, but the pixies are going to let him go eventually.
How long ago did you say he stepped in there?
I don’t know… maybe an hour?
Well there you go! You’ll see him again in a year.
What, you can't wait a year? What else have you got going on?
