Thoughts of Home

(30 Olaesta 5115: Ta’Illistim)

She looked at the letter in her hand from her mother and could not help but read it again even though her eyes were blurring from the tears that she could not stop.

Luxie dear,


We are so happy to hear all is going well for you. There is nothing I am looking forward to more than hearing your every new song, and learning all about each creation!


Your father and I cannot get away now, there have been reports of possible encroachments upon our borders and he wants to be sure the scouting groups have enough holy magic to support them. I know you will understand.


We think often of you. Let us plan to get together later this summer. Do you need anything until then?


Love to you,


Her disappointment was heavy. She thought for sure they would be able to join her. And now there was so much news to share.

“I only need you,” she whispered aloud to the letter, drew a cleansing breath and folded the letter up. She splashed her face with cold water and picked up her harp to play herself back at home in the deep of the forest. She did not know how else to feel close to her family.
