I Saw The Tooth Fairy

I Saw The Tooth Fairy

[su_heading size=”18″]I Saw The Tooth Fairy[/su_heading]

The other night Axel’s tooth fell out, or rather, it was holding on by just a few roots when his father took a wrench to it and yanked it out, a family tradition with hanging teeth just asking to be pulled. As sweet as the Livingston men were, they were also tought as nails and pain was something they felt but never acknowledged. But they aren’t born that way, they grow into it. 

The night the tooth came out, Axel’s mother was so tired that she almost was unable to wait for Axel to fall asleep before stealthily tucking the tooth under his pillow for the tooth fairy to find. As it turned out, Axel’s mother was having trouble falling asleep and so she went to her desk in her pajamas and warm sheep skin slippers to write, as she often did when she couldn’t sleep. She stayed up late, writing into the quiet of the night so absorbed that she almost didn’t notice the feighnt whirr breeze down the hallway outside her open door. Shuddering, she for a second thought she might be seeing things but her senses told her otherwise and as silently as she could, she climbed the stairs thinking about how ludicrous her actions felt at the moment, and for allowing herself to believe in the impossible. Living amongst children had made it difficult to decipher between the real and the imaginative..

At the top of the stairs something small and irredescent flashed by. she froze, her suspicions confirmed. Holding her breathe she stepped into the hallway shimmering with irredescent light from the fluttering of her wings as she searched for Axel. She would remain motionless, all but her wings, and then suddenly dart to the next room.

Finding Axel she softly landed on the carpet and there she rose to full height smiling as she watched
him sleeping. I watched her as she extended her long thin fingers to search for the tooth under the pillow. Axel’s head must have been right on it because she seemed to have difficulties reaching it. She carefully picked up a corner of the pillow and slipped a present underneath. At that moment she startled and
suddenly her face was directly in front of mine looking into my eyes with the most beautiful emerald green eyes I had ever seen. We stared at each other for what seemed like an eternity and than she shot out of the room and down the stairs. Looking down I noticed shimmering dust all over my pajamas.

The next day Axel excitedly flew down the stairs with a paddle racket with a ball attached. In all the excitement, he noticed that his tooth was still under his pillow.

Seeing the tooth fairy has changed my perspective on the world. I can’t go outside at night anymore or
enter a forest without knowing that I am not alone. I keep listening intently in the hopes of hearing the sound of her fluttering wings again and I look for her everywhere.

I hope that she did not get punished for being seen by a human. If I could say something to her I would
thank her for confirming my belief in magic and for giving me the ability to see that there is so much more to life than I had ever imagined.

  1. Oh Jillian – it’s a perfect mix of mommy-tiredness and pure childhood enchantment!! Takes me back to the night I just knew I heard Santa’s bells when I was about 7. Love the details about her emerald eyes!

    It’ll be fun for the boys to hear about this encounter once they are older and won’t just stay up to see her :-D. Though I think I might do just that.

Day 5 ✅ Torrey - Panguitch UT
Today: 73 miles.
Total: 433 miles.

I thought yesterday was bad.... today started with forgetting water bottles. Then a wind storm. Happens to be trash day here, wind blew a trash can which hit my front wheel and knocked me off. I then fell into a ditch from the wind. 2nd fall. At a construction stop a family offered me a ride in a different direction. We went north for 40 miles. Still the same mileage for the day from the drop point.

In the afternoon, I got a puncture and a broken spoke. Thank you to the gentleman who stopped to help me fix it.

This is insanely difficult. Way underestimated this trip. Will finish though.
