From the other side of the road….

…. the row of bushes along this path looked like they just go along the road up the hill they came from. Zara could see now that the row they were under lead to the right along the road but the path winds up straight towards another hill which strange shape she saw yesterday afternoon when she was connecting to earths power. From up there it looked like a lush green island in a vast sea of brown, chestnut, orange and yellow bushes and trees. She saw that the entire valley is covered with nutbushes, oaks and beeches and she wondered how barren it must look like in winter. ….

Where are we?

Zara asks the women.
“We are in Erecura’s sphere. We are her followers. We are here to find her lost children and to lead them where they should be”
“Erecura?????” “I can’t tell you any more yet. We are to close to the outside. If you feel ready we will go to our resting place.” The woman waves at the men who still stand where Zara has left them. They come and one carefully takes Alaana in his arms. The woman gets up. Zara tries to get up as well but she feels dizzy as soon as she gets up. The second men steadies  her….

"Yes……

it does! she says hesitantly.
But there is that frown in her that sighs “NO not another destiny!!!!”

The woman waves Zara towards her. “Come on sit down beside me. It will be less now!”
She sits down Alaana between them. Zara strokes her hair gently. It is less. She now only feels the power like a slow river running through her…..

a song….

of birth, death, re-bearth. It’s beauty stunned her. She let her body rest on the ground feeling her energies merge with earth’s but also with all the energies of the beings she can hear. An enormous power surges through her but she can not handle it. She sits up abrupt. Alaana’s head rests in the womans lap. She is sleeping. Smiling.

The woman smiles at her. “You will learn to channel the power! This was just the first test to see if you are fit for your destiny!” “NO!” she thinks jumping up all fleeing on her mind. But two of the men step out of the bushes in to her way. “You can not leave now. You are entering the inner sanctum!” “But no one has asked me if I want this?” Zara shouts.  “How did you feel when you merged with the universal energies?” The woman simply asks. Zara turns back towards her astonished. “How did I feel?” She tries to remember. That was this enormous surge of power it scared her. It scared her to death but there was also this…..” this…. She can not find words for it. “It does feel good as well doesn’t it?”….

….. Alaana vanishes….

… out of her view and she could only see a chaotic rush of pictures. Her grandma sitting behind the curtain of her bed crying while she was crying not knowing that her nan was there. A beautiful young woman pregnant who looked astonishingly like herself. A country devastated by fire and a city of stone!
It is too much for her senses. She faints….
