Detour

With a nod to the short story Landlord of the Crystal Fountain by Malaki Whitaker, this story follows Crispin who is on his way to the wedding of a distant cousin. A random encounter means that he never gets there, but ends up somewhere else entirely. This is a story about the power of chance and having the desire and courage to jump into the unknown. Everyone has that desire in some measure, but few act on it. 

Published November 2016, initially as an open source story free for everyone.
