‘I Sensed The Unwanted Guest Was Somewhere There’

I was playing a dangerous game with my body, I felt it was getting too little air to breathe but I was almost done, just a small area on the edge of forest was left. My body began to tremble but I sensed the unwanted guest was somewhere there. Just as my inner sight noticed the location, my body couldn’t stand this state anymore. I felt weak and darkness fell in front of my eyes.

‘She Does Not Normally Come To Strangers’

A small black kitten was sitting on the fence, observing the life around carefully. When her eyes reached mine, she curled up and looked at me even more intently. But then she straightened up, jumped down to the ground, came to me boldly, meowed quietly and started to rub against my leg. Ailintho looked at me surprised.

‘She does not normally come to strangers’, she said with disbelief.

I spoke nothing, just smiled and scratched the kitten softly behind her ear. She closed her eyes and purred with pleasure but Ailintho didn’t let it last long.

‘We must go’, she turned around and walked ahead. ‘The elders are awaiting us.’

‘You Have An Unexpected Guest In Your Forest’

‘So did you find any traces when you were exploring the forest?’

‘I did. Not the ones the villagers would think of, though.’

‘They did not seem like hybrid or animal ones, did they?’, I guessed.

‘Neither of them.’

Orthus and I looked at each other instinctively. No hybrid then, just as we expected.

‘So what were these?’

‘Human ones. You have an unexpected guest in your forest.’

Something Different Today

This time it is not about The Mouth of Serpent but some other blogs that I create (which influence my storytelling, too). If you wish, please click the links, these sites are not exactly about literature but have a similar atmosphere.

Land of Goddesses (my own interpretation of goddess oracle cards)

Encircled By The Runes (I write about the Elder Futhark there)

Princess Charlotte of Wales (blog about an extraordinary historic figure, unfortunately completely forgotten)

Grunge Graveyrad (blog about grunge music as you can guess)

The Queendom of Anna Solun (my personal blog)

Mervania (my other story)

Islin (my other story)

‘I Don’t Like People Walking Behind Me’

‘I don’t like people walking behind me.’

She frowned and answered angrily, ‘That is not my problem.’

‘I am not proceeding till I can keep my eye on you.’

‘In that case I will return the way I had come and you can find your way on your own.’ She turned her back on me and started to walk away.

‘May I know your name, Lady of the Forest?’

He bowed his head before me ironically and said

‘May I know your name, Lady of the Forest?’

‘Ailintho. Ailintho Kernal, member of the Druid Council’

‘Nice to meet you, Ailintho’, his pretty, full lips were still crooked in an ironic smile. ‘I am Wanlorn, a free warrior and I don’t belong to any councils.’

Now I got angry. I looked at him with disregard and said,

‘I can guess why. Now go!’

He turned round his back on me and went slowly ahead. ‘God and Goddess, please give me patience to arrogant warriors!’, I prayed silently and followed him still being cautious. You can never trust warriors.

The Map of Noia

I am posting this very basic and makeshift map of Noia. The plot is taking place on one huge continent called Noia in two lands Esselen and Theria, the druids seat and the temple are marked symbolically…I have no manual skills, sorry.
