A/N: I probably won’t manage 12 drabbles for this challenge, but I already know I love it – all those wonderful old prompts to choose from. I’m almost spoiled for choice, I have a short list of 25 that I’m going to choose from, let’s see how many I manage to do.
There was something unnatural about Jasmine. Sometimes she’d look at you with a blank, emotionless expression on her face and it would make your blood run cold. For all that she was just a child, her eyes said otherwise. She gave Roy the creeps.
A little voice in his head whispered ‘changeling’, but that was just myth and superstition. Still, he didn’t like being alone with her these days. Deep down he was afraid of her, though he’d never admit it. What could an adult have to fear from a small girl?
He discovered too late, changelings aren’t a myth.
