A Liger’s Tale, V. Left in a muddle

liger pawsKiera had been walking all day Chronos had suspicously left her hanging again she hated that. It was time to rest.

Images reminders of scents and sounds came, she was waiting for it all to fade. This piece would not exit from her the ache became a dull pain the longing become a wound covered over and all words still would not go.

She wanted a clean understanding that bled no more. Better to have desire fall or be rekindled than be in this terminal hell. Unrequited love sooner or later would step aside and a signal grace would appear like lines in the sky or drops on the ground.

Her foolishness haste quandry and silliness would halt she reckoned, she knew better not to deny the knowing of the heart. Cutting out the wound was not safe. Protecting it would be best. It was her own lack of judgement that had caused the wound it was hers to sort out.

The Foundary was only a day’s journey from ‘The Desert Rose’. The gypsum rock that was like the alabaster she loved. This one was different it had become a monument to one of the legendary masters whom locals claimed had lived just before the greatest time of his life.

If only she could hear a susurrer once clearly perhaps it would set the course for the path ahead.

Away to the river to the place where all things are found safe and sound

Surely upon her arrival at the Foundary there would be food and drink.

Yet her thoughts still wandered to envison what her protection would be made of. Only the finest metal would do and she was determined to discover the elixir that none had yet found. Her dreams were filled with the form her protection would take slowly the materials would come she trusted and with the acquired elixir.

She had heard the news… the ‘Invisibles’, Verve, Vigor, Vicious, Vigilant and Valiant were journeying onward Yol’carn’s words were true, this she knew. Chronos had given her the knowledge that it was only a matter of time. She winced, Chronos was a trickster she took his words with a grain of salt but was still careful to attend to the matters Chronos presented to her. In previous days she had learned the hard way, “was there ever a easy way with Chronos” she wondered.

Gathering her senses and waiting until stillness passed she remembered that Chronos would not leave her forever surely the muddle she was in would soon be behind her.
