The meaning lost in the hypnotic trance invoked by the monotone, the class, transfixed, listened to the sound of the speaker, “Blah, blah, blah.”
Talia’s mind wandered to other worlds, worlds where fairies flitted through the sky, where giants and ogres were friendly and where worries disappeared. Feeling the warmth of her world, she unfurled her wings and lifted into the sky to join the other fairies. Together they painted rainbows in the sky and caused the gentle breeze to caress the flowered field.
“Talia, stop daydreaming!”
Shaken from her world, she again heard, “Blah, blah, blah…”
A tear trickled down her cheek.
