Where They Grow

Appearing The Closed Eye Open | Issue VIII | Pages 44-51


In this short fiction story, I write about a nonbinary child who goes by the name Benny and uses they/them pronouns. Benny is experiencing trouble at school and isolating themselves from their mother. They find solace by exploring the forest behind their house. Then on one particular day, Benny is enchanted by a mysterious occurrence with a spider web that lures them deeper into nature than they ever thought possible.
