The Witching Hour XI
Cowgirl Nymph
This follows on from The Witching Hour I to X and it's all the fault of Thimbleful Thursday's prompt "The Witching Hour."

Walter was a librarian with an interest in calligraphy, and he’d been subject to this sort of attention before. The first time, before he’d discovered how to make them go away, had been frightening. Now it was annoying more than anything else.

He’d rather have been reading a good book or catching up on his sleep, although this harasser was not Walter’s choice for the directed dreaming he’d used on the female warlock who’d last annoyed him, but instead he was writing a letter of rejection.

All reasonably standard, until it was delivered by homing, self-unwrapping, and recipient-sticky paper airplane.

Calligraphy magic is almost as intriguing as fiber arts magic. :)

I'm having a little trouble with the second paragraph, though. I think that it's telling me that last time, Walter used directed dreaming rather than a homing paper airplane to deliver his rejection?

Yes, exactly.

She was silly enough to push into his dream...

The paper airplane just broke me, giggling, for a couple minutes. The image there is just plain fun. Well, maybe except for the person who is now wearing a piece of paper they can't dislodge.

He is the one person it's not meant to be fun for. :)
