It is said that some trees provide access to other worlds, even allowing entry to the faerie realm itself, a place of magic and wonder.
Thus, one dark and windy night two adventurers, with all due reverence, approached such a tree, fearful yet excited. What miracles awaited? What riches of body and soul?

Then gave it a shove. Then a bit of a kicking.
“Arse. It’s just a tree.”
