Twilight’s Gossip

An assembly of whimsical fairytale folk gather around the meager light of a flickering streetlamp to muse the minutes away as twilight breaks smoothly over the eves and awnings of this sleepy hamlet. Together they hold a steady listen as Giacomo spins the local gossip in a leisurely drawl; uninterested by the topics at hand, he is merely amused by the mastery he has over the audience which he entertains. With the flick of a fib and a slip of exaggeration, these gullible jaws will be slack in exasperation.
