Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
When 13-year old Jake woke, he was no longer in his bed.
He was in a forest, surrounded by plants too strange to be those of Earth.
And even stranger than those was the teenage girl in front of him.
She wore a glittering dress that was cut up to here and down to there in a way that seemed to cling to her skin by charm alone, but it was her hair Jake noticed first. It was composed entirely of leaves. Tangled green and brown shoots burst straight from her skull, sending little radiants of light across her brow where the sun touched them.
Her eyes were even more alien: the colour of wood and pupil-less, surrounded by corn-yellow where white should have been. They were also balanced in the focus, the steady eyes of a queen familiar with command, and when she blinked Jake smelt a wonderful perfume that beckoned him without her needing to say a word.
