The Twee Musketeers

‘Twas upon a midsummer eve, when a band of Fairies were celebrating coming of age. Into the merry revelers throng ran Onion, carrying an abandoned babe. The words of the ancient soothsayer foretold, the child’s life will end on the day he becomes a Musketeer in the Kingdom of the South.’ Alas, the Fairies have fallen in love with the innocent babe, so they agree that two of their own will live as mortals to alter the course of this shocking destiny. There’s treachery and treason, love and tears, Step up to the derring-do, of the Twee Musketeers.
