There’s More to Life Than Boxes: a fable

Van Man


The Van Man is extremely good at what he does.  Extremely good and, since securing the contract with The Overseer, extremely rich.  He transports her boxes all across the land.  His success rests in hers.

She is the only box-maker left and he is the only Van Man that she trusts.  They are old business acquaintances.  Both of them are fond of the odd glass of ale, but Van Man is a professional and only has the one.

Recently he thinks that he has seen a Wolf tracking his van.  He has put this down to lack of sleep and has tried to ignore it, except that he could have sworn a Strange Girl accompanied the Wolf once or twice.

The Van Man is thinking of retiring soon.


I can't believe I'm admitting this after years of disproving so-called 'sightings'. But the fae are real. They're real and they're here and they're going to banish humanity from the planet! Unless we can show them that we will care for the planet... please, help me save the world:
