Episode 22: Surrounded by firetrucks and unicorns

Tonight she was going to see a unicorn, a real live one just like in the movies. She knew because Uncle Tom had said so. He'd said that every full moon the unicorns all came out to eat the apples in the old orchard. Mum had shushed him and said not to be so silly, but that's when he'd winked, right at her so she'd know for absolute sure it was true.

Bizarre and beautiful bedtime stories from the wonderful Adam Barnett, originally published in 'The Back of Beyond' and 'Between the Leaves'. Music by Gurdonark.
