Elisabeth walked straight towards the horse which stood still among nearby trees. She slowly approached it, letting it sniff her hand first. When she gained the stallion’s trust, she could finally touch him.
“What are you?” she asked the creature as if expecting an answer.
I am the incarnation of your Guardian Angel, said a male, non-human voice. I came to warn you against evil.
Elisabeth took a step back and blankly stared at the unicorn. Am I dreaming or did it just speak to me? Elisabeth thought to herself, but before she was able to ask another question, a bright light blinded her and the stallion vanished in the dark of the night.
Did I just touch a unicorn? Elisabeth asked herself in astonishment and remained standing outside until the wee hours of the morning.
