Screams of agony, floated along the hallway, Marrisa was led in a bed, sweat pouring over her face, her eye's closed tightly, blocking out all pain, she shifted uncomfortably, a sudden wave of pain washed over her, as she fell back, her face as white as fresh fallen snow, showed the darkness of her eye's, a nurse came up quietly and wipped her fore-head, dabbing slightly, "it will be alright, everything will be allright" she moved closer offering her hand as support, Marrisa smiled weakily and accept her invetation of her hand, again a fresh wave of pain came over her, forcing her to fall further into the wall pressing hard on the nurses hand, a faint cry followed the screams, and a small baby was being held by the doctor, the plae olive complexion made the baby look more like a ghost than anything else, "you have a beutifull baby girl" said the doctor grinning and looking up, his smile faded as he saw the expressionless face of Marrisa, one single tear rolled down her cheek, a nurse went up to her feeling her neck for a pulse, but she found none, she shook her head sadly, picking up the envolope Marrisa had demended that they read if she didn't make it through, she opened it carefully and reached inside a single gold pendant fell out she bent down, with one hand she picked up the pendant with the other she opened the letter and began to read,
If you are reading this now, then that will mean i did not make it through the birth, i deeply regret leaving my darling girl in this world all alone but i now, that you will find her a safe place for her to go.
she is very special to me and the world, when her time comes she will now what to do.
I hope to god that the prophets find there way to her safely, i would much appretiate if you did not mention anything about this to her to soon, for it will scare her into denial.
Her name is Floren, please tell whoever has her, her name and remind them that when she is older she will now herself as floren even if she does not be called that at first.
All my love in the world
tear marks splashed the paper, and the writing was scruffy and untidy, as if written in a hurry, special to the world? what would this child have to do? and would she do it?
a 16 year old girl sat scribbling notes onto a piece of paper, she looked up and pushed a lock of black ebony hair out of her face, she thought for a moment and then bent her head down again and began to write.
She had a pale olive complexion which made her look more like a ghost, her black ebony hair highlighting each feature on her face, she ran her fingers through her hair making a few strands fall out, "i'm losing my mind" she said quietly, her voice was tender and soft enough to make your heart melt.
She stood up and stroked the creases out of her dress robes, she was wearing a long dark velvet, dress robe, which looked rather dusty and scruffy, she shook her head slightly, "now what was it that i had to do?" she asked herself moving towards the door on the oppisite side of the room, she touched the door handle and remebered, "oh yeah i have to go see ma' and get a letter off of her, and then she said that i have to start out to look for myself" she snorted slightly, she tought is was a ridiclus idea to go out and look for yourself, unless there was a reason to do so, she opened the doorway and slowly walked down the hallway till she got to some steps, she went down the steps and entered a door on her left, she had now entered a large kitchen, pots and pans throw about everywhere, "ma', you said i have to get a letter from you and then i have to go and look for myself" she called softly looking over each pile of plates which were stacked so high it was very hard to see over them.
There was a crash from behind one of the piles, Floren stood on tip toes to look over the pile, and there she was, a small plump woman with a dark peach complexion and long brown wavy hair, which was tied in a mad frizzy bun, was sat among plates which had crashed and smashed to the floor "oh hello dear" she said quietly, "here's the letter and here is your bag and now all you have to do is og into town and get yourself some weapons just in case, it can be dangerous out in the big wide world" she said not even looking up, she stood up and more crashes were heared she turned without looking at Floren and finally said "and i am truly sorry" before wondering into the next room, Floren looked sucpiously after her, before turning and leaving, to go to town.
when she got there she looked at the ten gold pieces her ma' had given her the five silver and thirteen bronze coins, she moved among the people cautiosly watching out for others.
After about 5 minuites she had moved to the inn 'stomping alice' she had now bought herself some new clothes, she had an ordinary shirt and a skirt which was tied up with a band of rope, she had also bought herself a long black cloack, under this was various holsters, one which carried a small dagger, three small ones fixed together carried three small vials, on her back was a sword of great magnifecence, and she also had some healing herbs just in case, she moved to the door of the inn and carefully opened it, stepping inside, the noise dimmed down slightly when she entered but soon began to come back to life after she had sat down and ordered a red wine.
She sat watching people enter and people exiting, for some reason she thought she knew that something bad was just about to happen but she didn't quite now what, and she also guessed that she would probably met at least three more people and they would come with her, but she didn't now where this feeling was coming from, she just sat sipping on her ed wine watching people talk and point.
