Once the sunlight brought a new day, Night had gotten dressed and rushed off to her lessons. She was excited to see Talon again and to see
what she would learn. When she made it to the lesson hall, she noticed the students were huddled in a group whispering and Talon was nowhere to be
found. Soon, another man entered to teach. He called the elf over to speak in private.
"I have a message from the King and Queen. They wish to speak with you in their private meeting chamber down the hall."
It sounded ominous. Where was Talon and why did his King and Queen want to speak with her? She travelled the short distance and knocked on the heavy
door. It was King Malias who spoke first.
"Night Star, welcome, please sit down." "Something of urgency has come up and needs to be addressed."
The poor elf was beside herself with worry. What was going on and where was her beloved Talon? Her throat was dry and she could hardly swallow.
Queen Taya stepped forth and put her arm around Night.
"Child, please try to understand that we hold nothing but love for you, however, it has come to our attention that you and Talon have
become...very...close." "In our society, we do not believe in interspecies relationships. Our blood lines are pure." She smiled sadly.
Night was shocked and heart broken and couldn't even look them in the eyes. She wanted to scream in protest or say something profound, yet she
remained in an awkward silence.
King Malias stood from his throne and stepped down to speak more with her.
"Talon was sent away on a special mission." "For what it is worth, he is as deeply sorrowed and angry and confused as you must be." "I believe
that in time you will be able to understand, your pain will heal and you will be whole again."
The elven maiden could stand no more of this senseless chatter.
"Perhaps in time, your people will learn what real love is and that it goes beyond the boundaries of what is simply expected of others, even if it is
the wrong thing to expect."
She held her head up high and gently closed the door. Skipping her class for the day, she grabbed her cloak and went to visit Storm.
