Author's Notes: None
The rainbow offers passage from earth to other realms, they say. But the Summer country knows another such connection between worlds; for on rare occasions moonlight builds a brightly-paved way across the waters from hidden Avalon.
A crimson-cloaked king walks that shimmering path, his hair and armour reflecting the full moon's ghostly sheen. On the near shore, wrapped in shadows, his warlock always stands waiting.
According to legend, anyone who glimpses those two embracing will suffer severe melancholia. Local people wisely heed that warning - they yield the lake and lonely sands to the visitor from Faerie and his magical beloved.
