14    The Fairy Roads


Running into a church to hide from the tramp

Jack, Catherine & Ken find themselves falling into a glittering tunnel of blue light



Falling into the church was like falling down a well except it was blue and shiny. 
They could see the High Street through the far wall, as if it was made of glass.

Halfway down the church was a small side door that Jack did not even notice; until he saw Ken making for it.

“No Ken, we’ll be trapped inside!”

Forced to follow when Ken ignored him, Jack and Catherine grabbed him as he rattled the door handle in desperation. The door jerked open and they fell inside. Instead of a gloomy church, it was filled with a swirling tunnel of shiny blue light.

Jack felt a tingling in his stomach. “What’s that?” he asked as it grew, buzzing through him like an electric saw. Without warning, he shot towards the stained glass windows on the far side of the church. Hearing Ken gasp, he screwed his eyes shut for the collision.

“What just happened?” Catherine yelped.

Jack opened his eyes. No longer in the church, they were shooting across the car park towards a big brick wall.
