PostSubject: A Day in the life of...Nature   Tue Apr 29, 2008 11:02 pm

It was a cold year, the last leaves had fallen from the Autumn tree's in the town of Duthil. A young Cimmerian girl of 18 years named Rylee Elvana lay on the cold, leaf covered ground singing a solemn tune quietly as she stares into the bleak sky. Her peaceful seclusion came to an end when her nasty uncle shouted for her to get back inside. Rylee's parents abandoned her at a young age and left her in the hands of her fathers brother who she hated. He did not care for her and treated her more as a burden and slave than anything else.

Uncle Faras: "Blast it all, Girl! You would rather sit out here and freeze than sort out the termite problem indoors!?" Her Uncle yells while clenching his fist.

Rylee stands up and frowns at the man who has tormented her for too long, "I will no longer be your slave. I should have done this a long time ago, I'm leaving!" She exclaims before turning her back to her uncle and walking off.

Uncle Faras: "Ha! You won't survive 10 minutes in the real world! You mark my words, Girl!... hmph...good riddance" He barks at the top of his voice as she walks away from him.

Rylee breathes a sigh of relief, she feels as if a great weight is now lifted off her shoulders but is now also more scared than she has ever been. She is alone and must fend for herself. Curiously Rylee looks to the floor and see's a strange note just laying on the ground, she picks it up to see that it is a recruitment notice for House of the New Dawn. She smiles knowing that she has nothing to loose and ventures to Kathia.

A couple of months later Rylee had already joined this Guild and knew that she belonged. She was quick to take her first assignment after only a few weeks after being admitted and headed out of the city to find some ingredients. Happily she skipped and smiled and sung her familiar song.

After walking for miles in the Winter snow she suddenly stops in a wide open area full of hills and leafless trees. She steps back as a group of three boys of her own age approach her. "Well if it isn't nature girl" one of the boys stated with a sneer. "Where are you off to? Going to pick flowers and hug trees?" one of the others said before they all laughed. Rylee was frightened and all though had already received some training she was not ready to fight and did not want to aggravate them further, "Just leave me alone" she cried as one of the boys grabs her bag. She tries to grab it back but she is not strong enough and is flung to the ground hitting her head on a tree behind her. As the boys rummage through her bag they find a photo of her parents and make crude remarks about their whereabouts, they then come across a book entitled, 'One with Nature', which causes them all to point and laugh, "Ha, nature girl, think you have powers? You are weak"
Rylee looks up at the boys, a tear rolls down her cheek and her expression quickly turns into a frown. She uses the tree behind her to help lift herself up and then turns around and looks at it for a moment, a seemingly lifeless, leafless tree. She turns back to the boys and explains in a calm tone, "I know what the important things in life are, the New Dawn has taught me that, and *that* you will never understand" After she speaks these words the air becomes filled with a sudden breeze. Her rich red hair blows around her face as the wind becomes stronger and the boys look around wondering what is going on. Rylee looks down at her feet at the leaves which lay upon the snow, to the boys amazement they gaze as they see the young girl levitate slightly into the air, her body beginning to spin around as the leaves float around her like a whirlwind. The boys are blown to the floor and quickly scurry off in fear into the distance. The winds calm down as she watches the boys run away and her feet land slowly and firmly back on the ground.

In amazement the Cimmerian girl turns around to see that the leaves had returned to the tree behind her and it looked healthier and greener than ever. She did not understand how this happened and did not know if she has always had this kind of power but she knew one thing, she felt more connected to life than ever and she has House of the New Dawn to thank for it. Rylee picks up her things and head back to Kathia...Her academy, Her refuge, Her home...
