the seer, part 2

The vision that followed didn’t make any sense.  A certain part of the forest had trees standing as if in a line. It was incredible how lined up they were, actually, as if someone had grown them from seed. In this part of the forest, he saw the girl running. But she was just a…

the seer

The man had been in the village for quite a while. For him, days felt like years in the village. Our in the forest, years felt like days.  He had seen many things that gave him hope at finding the answers he seeked. There was the old man with book with mysterious origins. There were…

possibility

As she opened her eyes… Dawn again. Sun rising once more. Clouds scattered into the far forever distance as if you could stretch across time and back again. In the moment it takes to breath in deeply, then she realized all was right. Countless possibilities deep into the horizon and as you looked to the…

down in the canyon below

Starlight into a rocky canyon. The girl was watching something. Watching as something moved down below. Every so often if you focused, you could see a flicker of movement from down below, down by the thickly rooted trees.

She could feel something watching her and knew it was the beast who’d chased her until her lungs felt like they were bleeding. The beast’s eyes glowed deep withing the forest….

the unanswered question

The man looked at the worn piece of paper that the little man had given him. He hadn’t seen this in ages. And as he looked at it he was still astonished that he was holding it his hands once again. “How did you find this?” “It was given to me…” The little man grabbed…

the beast who runs through the forest

Daylight.  Silence. Then, boom! A thunderous crash from the forest. The beast tore through the trees, hungry. Growling. Bearing its teeth and small animals would run. Hiding in the brush. Its ears perked up and from far off it heard something that it would be drawn to. Instantly running down the path. Barreling through without…
