Lesson 9: Among the Feechies

Writing Exercise

When Aidan gets mixed up with the feechiefolks in Bayberry Swamp, they view this seemingly normal boy as a figure of legend and wonder. Something similar happens in Chapter 2 of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe when Lucy meets the faun Tumnus. To the reader, Lucy looks like a regular girl in a strange land, but to Tumnus, she is a figure who has stepped out of a myth and into his everyday life.

Your exercise this lesson is to write a scene in which an everyday scene or a normal person is viewed as legendary/marvelous/awe-inspiring. Bonus points if you figure out a way to do this in a non-fantasy/science fiction setting.
