Sneak Peek 12: Kailen the Fairy

Fantastical Creature Reality Show Contestant Sneak Peek #12: Kailen the Fairy

At five and a quarter inches tall, Kailen is the shortest potential contestant. He has pale skin, dark hair and transparent wings. A dark green tunic covers vine like tattoos on his chest and shoulders. Five black dots mark each side of his face starting beside his eyes and arching down the edge of his cheeks.

Interviewer: You are the shortest contestant applying for the show. How do you feel about that?

Kailen: There’s nothing wrong with my size. The world is full of different sizes, including creatures much smaller than me. If everyone were the same size, that would be a boring place in my opinion.

Interviewer: Everyone knows fairies can fly, but other magical powers vary from place to place. What are your magical abilities?

Kailen: It’s true we can have very different abilities, even within the same populations. I can do some shapeshifting and healing. I also talk to many living entities like plants.

Interviewer: Those will come in handy on the island. What do you think will be the biggest challenge for you?

Kailen: I don’t know yet. It depends on the circumstances. I guess having to lift heavy things might be a problem.

Interviewer: Don’t forget iron. Do you worry about metal poisoning on the island?

Kailen: Where would the metal come from? We’ll be dumped on the island with nothing but the clothes on our bodies. The point is to survive, not just from the elements, but also from each other and the viewers. I suppose some metal might make it onto the island. If so, I will avoid it.

Interviewer: What makes you special enough to make it onto the island?

Kailen: I think the viewers like fairies and will want to see one on the island. It isn’t enough to be different because we’re all different. I can fly, and that will add another dimension to the game.
