Vohne raged… Confined to the house, perfectly useless.
It was his role to defy the forest’s realm to feed Cibelle. Not the other way around, and he cursed at the Blue Moon for putting him in such an irritating position. Cibelle and him were a fusional team. He was her arms, and she was his heart. One just couldn’t bear to lose the other.
He knew far better than her the perils of wandering through the surounding woods this time of year. He had warned her, but she felt too close to the forest to be cautious enough.
Vohne trusted his Lover… He trusted her with his life, but he feared for her nonetheless. What, in Heaven’s name could he possibly do to be of any help? Not much, by all means, but there had to be something he could try.
Wandering through the house, something suddenly caught Vohne’s gaze. In a corner of the living room, Cibelle had her collection of gems, magic feathers and mysterious dusts in little colorful jars. She regularly contacted the higher powers of elements, as she had explained to him. To seek protection and peace, or so she said.
She had introduced him to her art, but Vohne left the hours long meditation and incantations to Cibelle. It was her thing, he hadn’t felt the need to try it himself… He didn’t have the patience for it.
Kneeling in front of the hand-made shrine, Vohne closed his eyes and paced his breathing, just as he was thaught. Pushing away his negative thoughts slowly, he called to his home Mountains for help.
It sure wouldn’t work, but what harm was there in trying? He focused as well as he could, hoping he could make a difference in Cibelle’s quest.
Little did he know that despite his doubts, two shadows had left the highest mountain peak. Gliding down towards the creek, the bald eagles perched on the highest oaktree branch just in time to witness the powerful buck charging Cibelle….

Wayne has quite the eye for capturing wild animals in their environment… But don’t take my word for it, and pay him a little visit 🙂
