Leaves

PROLOGUE

The alder tree was long due to be trimmed. Its branches hung over the fence into the patchy yard below. A sprinkler was on in the yard, spraying water everywhere in a futile attempt to bring grass to the bald patches. and obscuring the grey concrete wall behind, the only sign of the truth.

It was early summer, and the trees were showing their splendor. The maples were out in full force today, as well as the old rhodedendron over by the pine tree. The old shrub, which was so old and neglected it had become a tree, showered small leaves down upon the grass. Not far away, the white oaks and the black oaks were at in again, each trying to outdo the other.

The alder leaves, meanwhile, were far from perfect. Alder leaf mite, tent caterpillars, and genetics had blemished most of the leaves. The rest were deformed, discolored, or ripped in some way. But there was one leaf, just one, that was absolutely perfect.

It was finely formed, and just a bit smaller than average. It was a rich shade of green, with symmetrical veining all throughout its body. One almost expected it to breathe, so perfect was it.

The wind blew past it, whistling through the branches. It grabbed the leaf, pulling it free from the branches. The leaf floated through the air for a moment, carried by the wind, before floating down towards a puddle that the sprinkler had formed in the patchy grass. The leaf settled down gently, barely causing a ripple.

And opened her eyes.

Fear not... there's much more where that came from.

I should advise you, though, the first few chapters are mostly to set things up. After the plot twist, it's a completely different story...

And you can walk away knowing you were right all along. I really am just a dumb bunny.
