Mathew rose early the evening after after Hope’s fit. Since his nearly fatal run in with the three werewolves he had encountered a month back he had been sleeping late. This evening though he awoke ready to deal with anything.
Finding that Lisa, and Rachel were out he decided to go hunting. He Sent his thoughts to Rachel. Making sure she, Lisa and the baby were safe and together. This done he set off to hunt. Though cold it felt good to be out .
Rachel and Lisa had spent the day out gathering provisions, with the weather so very cold they had decided it was wise. They had walked to the nearest village and traded some of Lisa’s potions for as much food and essentials as they could. Rachel had taken her wolf form so to those they met they had just appeared as a young mother and a wolf. Lisa had managed to strap a bag to Rachel’s back so they could share the load. As the light began to fade they turned back and headed towards the tower.
As they approached the tidal lake Lisa thought how much it reminded her of her lovely cottage by the sea. The tide was out and though there was no sign of sand there were green algae covered steps leading off to the distance. Up on the hill above the lake there stood some ruins also not unlike the ones near her home.
As they skirted the shore of the lake Rachel reflected on the ebb and flow of her life . Not unlike the life of this huge lake. The fullness of love she had known from her parents, the knowledge they had imparted to her about her kind and how to live in harmony with nature. That was the first flow
Then the great ebb when the Vampires had killed her parents leaving her lost and wandering only to found by a group of unscrupulous humans who had a travelling circus. It took her years to escape their cruelty leaving them dead except for their servant, a young gypsy who had always been kind to her.
The years she spent alone in the wilderness never approaching human’s or wolf packs let alone werewolves knowing none would accept her. Another ebb.
Then the great flow when she met Mathew, became pregnant , then met Lisa and Hope and begrudgingly, yes even Fay.
Lisa carrying Hope close to her to keep her warm could not stop herself from crying. She could no longer see any future just the ebbing away all that is good and right. As far as she could see all was dying , bar evil.
As they left the shore of the lake, a tall thin figure stepped out on to the road in front of them. Lisa’s step faltered and Rachel bristled and snarled . They both peered at the figure then both said at once…. “An Elf! ”
