Isanien, pt. 26

*written in a slow, careful hand. The dark parchment is stained by smudges on the edges, as if held in place by something wet.*

Banished… This land as alien to me as the island once was. The dark one follows the young upstart now. He has chosen sides, again. We’ve run the fool’s errands, gathering this and that, and all for naught. They crept into their foul king’s lair, and when confronted by a fool gnome, let him live. I watched from the shadows, waiting for something… and now I find myself trapped in the snow with the others. There must be a way back. The distant stars… those too have changed. I thought I had begun to learn them, but they’ve shifted. They follow a different dance in the sky.

I am not so far from Her that she will not hear my call. Though I am no priestess, I can make an offering from myself. The snow covered rocks stain as easily as any alter. If She has people in this land, she will lead me to them.
