~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Creeping through the dank and darkened passageways, the pair were near undetectable, having performed a brief rite that enabled them to slip into the shadows and conceal the evidence of their individual life-forces. As they crept through the darkness, she found herself drifting into memories of old; she felt powerless to stop this nostalgic assault upon her senses.

Sita’s mind overflowed with images from the past… a castle of the whitest granite glittering in the iridescent sky! Lords and ladies of the land attired in the finest outfits, their faces painted to perfection in homage to their Gods! The Council of Magi had reigned over all, their decrees always just though the manner of execution often harsh… she had endeavoured for what seemed an age! She had spent years befriending those in power, manipulating the foolish, trading favours with several in higher stations; all she had done being an attempt to one day become a Council member herself. All was for nought.

Her motivations in life had long since ceased; the lengthy and soul-wrenching death within the bowels of the mist over the centuries had been more than enough to remove all that had once been considered her life’s objectives. They were no longer necessary, and while that saddened her… there was also a small relief within; no more was she required to hold herself to such expectations of perfection, she could simply ‘be’.

The presence of Darien was still a wonder to her. He had been apprentice to a senior Council Magister, one of the very Magisters she had befriended in order to follow her ambitions, a Magister who had somehow become more to her than a simple tool to leverage herself into the higher stations. Trapped in her ghostly form she had witnessed the downfall of the Magi, she had seen the death and destruction that befell her kind, and she had been powerless to help. And yet, here was a survivor. She wanted to know more, but she would wait ‘til a more appropriate moment presented itself.

They crept silently through twisting corridors, careful to not kick the slightest pebble or brush against the hanging vines; the onslaught of chill against their flesh, the disturbing echo of a creature’s strange vibrations a persistent and ominous reminder of what lurked in the shadows above, that which would likely pounce upon them if they were to make a single error and break their illusion.

She prayed that Darien would take heed of her words. Sita had not been well-acquainted with the boy those many years past and she wasn’t entirely sure just what type of person he was… there was trouble within his aura though she failed to comprehend the nature. However, being one of her brethren, they all had a distaste of performing tiresome acts that were better left to the swordsmen and horsemen of the armies, surely he would remain quiet about this cursed spider. Surely…

There was a faint sound of crashing in the distance, not unlike the sound of water falling… a waterfall! There had been a waterfall near where Kaelci had placed their tower! Her pulse quickening, a liberating glow expanding from her heart, her pace quickened and she was all but running through this passageway, she could sense Darien still close behind her perhaps having felt her sudden change in emotional reaction. There was a glimmer of light up ahead! The roar of the cascading water louder and louder in her ears! Running, running, running, a rain of water before her eyes, she launched herself out from the cave and dove into the tranquil waters.



The water felt absolutely magical against her skin! She swam to the rocky shore and quickly stood upon the pebbles, the sun at her back, the runes woven into her perfectly dry dress having repelled the water, her hair glistening in the sunlight… Kaelci staring at her open-mouthed, clearly flabbergasted. Sita laughed her melodious tune and breathed the warm air into her lungs, a cheerful aura surrounding her as she smiled happily at Kaelci. “Hello, my dear! Sorry to have disturbed you… there was a frightful cave, you see.”

Before Kaelci could speak a word, a screechy voice spoke angrily. “Pfah! Where am I!? Why am I wet!? My fur! My glorious shiny fur!” The white kitten slowly crawled from the waters, trembling, appearing quite the drowned rat as it shook itself dry, water droplets flying everywhere.

Kaelci opened her mouth to speak once more, confusion wavering across her face, when Darien spoke. “Well… hello there, my lady! Would you be the adventurous miss that Mistress Sita was speaking of?”

At a complete loss for words, Kaelci turned from the three who had just emerged from the waterfall and strode to the nearby bar, quickly draining the glass that a thoughtful pixie had left for her.

Hay Kaelci it is from one of my favorite Godsmack vids. Perhaps it has been used else where, but I really like this version
And I like you new avatar, strong, creative.

The stupid thing won't let me correct it, sorry.

Thank you Sir Errollorre of the Shedlands!
I enjoyed your earlier story too! And I agree that the ability to be able to think at the screen and just have the words show up straight from thought would be amazing
haha.

I have a lady come in every day to feed the cat, but it is not the same. I am sure she does not stay with her for very long


Not read The Little Prince in French,not my kind of thing - but I read other novels in French, especially anything by Boris Vian.
