The Girl Who Fell – Short Story

Yggdrasil.

Have you heard of Yggdrasil?

Have you heard of Yggdrasil, the world tree? They say it is where the condors fly.

She is a huge tree, an enormous tree, a vast tree that grows out of our earth, through the clouds and into the sky. She is the place of myth, of legend, of story. She is the world tree.

The Girl Who Fell is a short story inspired by myths and legends. It tells the tale of the condor’s daugther, a small girl, who fell from the top of Yggdrasil, the world tree. It was written for a friend of mine who got ill and looks like a bird. Fortunately, she got better (and still looks like a bird)! The story was published in the Catweazle Magazine Spring 2014. Catweazle is an open mic night on every Thursday at the East Oxford Community Centre.
