In a daze, he flew. Through the night, and into the next day he flew. Bone-tired, his strength began to fail. The faerie mounds were far behind, and he was lost. The sky overhead was dark, and tumultuous. It promised a torrential downpour, and lightning besides. Everything seemed to have grown larger over the last few hours of travel. The trees, and the grass. Even the creatures of the forest. He needed to find shelter. He came to a great, manmade structure, and sought entry. The windows were all enormous, but more importantly, they were closed. The door was impossibly large, and the handle was nearly as big around as he was tall. He flew to the top of the house, to find a chimney. It was dark, and it was coated with soot, but it was exactly the way in that he needed. Down the chute he went, tumbling more than flying, until he came out into a hearth, cold for the summer. There were seats for giants around the fireplace, and he wanted to be nowhere near them when their owners returned. On he traveled, through strange and mysterious rooms filled with strange contraptions. His consciousness was fading, as he flew towards a door that was mostly closed, looking for shelter both from the storm, and the giants who owned this particular shelter. His wings gave one last, exhausted flap, and he tumbled out of the sky. This would be his end, he knew. He was falling. Something impossibly large, and soft crashed into him, and his awareness went out. He had landed in somebody's bed. On somebody's pillow, to be exact, not three inches away from somebody's sleeping face. He was small, small enough to sit easily in someone's upturned palm, He wore soft, supple leathers on his legs, and his tiny feet were bare. At his waist, he wore a bronze sword, nearly the size of a pin. His back sported a pair of diaphanous wings, somewhere between those of a butterfly, and a dragonfly, and a mop of wild red hair hung shaggy around his tiny head. He was covered in soot, and he had a tiny arrow-shaft sticking out of his shoulder. The pixie was in a bad way.
