Never mind that the true existence of a Unicorn was improbable even impossible to believe. At that moment, anything and everything seemed possible and very, very real. The unicorn appeared to trapped by a very thick vine that held her hind leg fast. She tugged and pulled. She kicked and lunged as she attempted to escape. Even as I was absorbing what was happening, the tree limb shifted as if to fall.
