Widow with Idle Sons

I had three sons, and I raised them by myself for the most part. What a disappointment! They were idle and careless. The two eldest weren't able to keep any sort of job. They kept coming home, expecting me to serve them hand and foot. My youngest was a bit more...

Turkish Princess

I'm waiting on the roof. Where is he? I've been waiting here for hours. He first appeared to me in my bedroom. I was sleeping. He kissed me and I woke. He told me that he was a Turkish god. He certainly looked the part! He told wonderful stories. He told me that my...

Corva the Witch
