It seems to be turning into Free Story Saturday today, don’t say I never give you anything!

This is one of mine, it’s a fantasy story originally podcast by The DrabbleCast in January 2008, and I’ve just rediscovered it in the archive, so I thought I’d share.  It’s the story of a slave who finds a magical artefact that leads to a new lease of life.

(The stuff about water bugs at the beginning – I have no idea…)


I hope you enjoy it!  I also didn’t realise that podcasts sometimes come with commissioned artwork, so it was a doubly nice surprise to find this piece of loveliness…

 I love the way you can zoom in and see the bubbles – this is just gorgeous.  BoKaier’s DeviantArt page is here :


I think they deserve some affection for this!
