Trying…

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 πŸ™‚

    1. I had a feeling it might speak to you πŸ™‚ I’m glad you noticed it! This was a totally unexpected piece of the story… It just felt like we were spending a little too much time with Cibelle… I missed Vohne. Even if the “episode” was short, it was good to hang around him a bit πŸ˜‰

  1. I love this twist. It feels like the challenge has almost been set up to deepen the connection between them by some higher power … not to mention it makes a much more satisfactory reasoning for why the eagles came to help than in Tolkien. πŸ˜‰ x

    1. I hadn’t seen it that way, but it makes a lot of sense… I really like the idea of them getting a more profound connection through such adversity πŸ™‚ And come to think of it, it should be even more obvious in the next part πŸ™‚

      Thanks again for your insightfull comments, as always… I love to read your thoughts πŸ™‚

      Muaaah!!
