Author – Emma Straub
Card Given – Gothic Romance by Jen Wang
The woods weren’t like Grandmother said they be, with clear paths and abundant fruit trees. Though there were roses, little else seemed to grow, and the omnipresent rain had coaxed the brambles across the clearings , weaving stiff branches together like fingers of the dead, immovable. Still, she had to try to cross her cloak in tatters but still pulled tightly over her head.
