Following in the footsteps of the Pied Piper series, I wrote my own story based off a dream I had:
Neverwas is trapped in an abusive relationship with her mother. When she meets the Pied Piper, a beautiful hero who calls to her with his silver whistle, she transforms into the very essence of beauty and freedom. She follows the Pied Piper into the forest where he shows her the deep, dark secrets of his cave. You can read this story in Three Tales to Chill Your Bones, Volume 3: Shapeshifters.
