Cold, winds  blow the  snow, frozen waters don’t  flow

High above the dark forest flies crow

Little  Mae  is chilled to the bone

Beloved Polar bear carries

Mae with loving care

So tired his burden

He transports

With love

Home

 

 

CHAPTER 1

east_of_the_sun__west_of_the_moon_by_liga_marta-d6j4193-001.jpg

Still they travel on cold and tired but as one

Little Mae  and Polar Bear together battle on

The wind and storm assail  them yet together

Travelling as one , strengthening  each other for ever.

 

Little Mae  your cloak is old and torn , how long have you been travelling?

Since the beginning of my memories Bear and I have been time unraveling.

Bear has always been with me caring,  loving and protecting me.

Tired as we are  still no end to our journey  do I see.

 

Bear lays down in the snow Little Mae joins him, across his fur her golden tresses flow.

As she sleeps, cold in raggy clothes  Bears tells us she was once  a Princess not always so.

Bear was once her handsome body guard  and happy in a fine home they did abide.

A spiteful witch took Maes  memory and turned the young man into  a Polar bear, forever to walk at her side.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER  2

Polar Bear was sleeping as little Mae awoke

It was still snowing poor little Mae was cold

Mr Siskin landed by little Mae  he looked at her then spoke

I have brought  you some food , these berries that in my beak I hold.

Little Mae  was grateful  more than she could say

For she was so hungry  not having eaten for some days.

Come now  Mr Siskin  share these  berries  with me

What about  Polar  Bear, let’s let him sleep ,in his dreams he’s free.

In his dreams Polar Bear  was once again a young and handsome man

Who was charged  with protecting  little Mae with his life the best  he can.

Little  Mae  who has no memory of who they are  decides to let bear sleep

They have travelled so far  and he has kept  her so safe, she feels his dreams he should keep.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 3

Little Mae  was tired  so Mr  Siskin invited  her  to stay awhile

He  suggested she have Christmas with his friends, to relax an even smile.

Polar Bear  was waking, stretching front paws and back

Missing Little Mae,  from his side, he jump up tottered and fell back!!

 

This all this caused  a huge commotion  among the forest folk

Carefully stepping  so as not one to hurt or wipe out any whole families at a stroke!

Carefully setting  himself down by Little Mae’s side  Polar Bear

Wore a frown, he was always  worrying  about  Little Mae always  full of care.

 

At length it was decided  that for Christmas  they would stay

All the forest  folk were excited and came out to gaze on Polar Bear and Little Mae.

the-winter-fairy-001

Winter Fairies  and pixies out from frozen  bushes peep

Mr Siskin introduced  each one  with a flourish and a tweet!

 

Polar  Bear felt safe and in control , pleased to see his charge looking so excited

He told the older fairies of his and Little Mae’s plight. He was grateful with them to feel united.

Little Mae  was so excited to be in such happy company

Polar bear  let  her run and gather holly and mistletoe, as long as her  he could see.

 

Now  even though Polar Bear  has to find a way  to regain Little Mae’s memories

And her proper size. He was happy to be with Mr Siskin watching Little Mae through the  trees.

So  for now we can  leave Little Mae and the forest folk happily gathering  things  for Christmas fayre.

I will be back  to tell you more  soon. I truly  hope  you will be there!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 4

The Winter Queen of  everywhere  was  a beautiful  soul

Although  she  rules  the dead season  she is the one  that makes  all  things whole!

She  had  heard of Polar Bear  and his beautiful  charge  little Mae.

And  so  while with the forest folk they  were busy  gathering  the Winter Queen came by their way.

 

At once  she  recognised  the tiny  girl and  saw through the shape of the bear that did protect her.

She was sister  to Little  Mae’s Father, she knew  the evil  magic  weaved by a spiteful defector.

At once  she stopped to speak  first  to Polar Bear

Do you remember who you are , where you come from and what  your  charge was when you were there?

Winter-Fairy-fairies-17362680-360-451

Yes answered  Polar  Bear I was body guard  to my  mighty king

He entrusted  to my  care he daughter  Little Mae  his most treasured thing.

The dark witch of the East came and threatened my master

She wanted  to be his Queen  but he did not in any way trust  her.

 

The winter Queen  encouraged the bear to tell her more

She  said  she needed  to know everything  so he was to tell her what he heard and what he saw.

The witch  from the East  used  every spell she  knew

She  was determined  to be   Queen and to get rid of Little Mae  too!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

CHAPTER 5

winter-fairy1-001

All  the forest  folk  decided to make Little Mae  a new  dress

They  coiffed her  hair  and  blended  colours so all who saw her were impressed!

Little Mae  was  so grateful  she  did not know what to say for they had made her smile on such a sad day.

The  day  that  she had, had  to bide her loving  father  farewell and watch  him fade  away!

 

The  Winter Queen  and Polar Bear  could not  believe  their  eyes

Little  Mae  was  slowly  growing  ,she would  soon be  her normal size.

Her hair  was growing  darker losing the bright  blond  fairy  sheen

Before  their very eyes  she was returning to the human Princess she had once been.

 

All this  extra  growing  was making Little  Mae so tired , she also began again to feel the cold

The  winter Queen  made  her a blanket  cape of the night sky , which  was  wondrous to behold   !

Let  her  sleep dear Polar Bear , let her have  some  rest  for  will need  all her  strength, her destiny to full fill.

Little Mae must regain  her father’s lands   and  release  her people and deal with the wicked witch , who did her father kill!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 6

 

 

 

Little  Mae,once fairy.  Now  grown  back  to the beautiful  woman  she was, strode  forth  with Polar  Bear

They  were  ready  now to face  the witch of  the East . To avenge  all wrongs  ( so wicked  witch beware)

How long  they had been away Mae really could  not tell, she had  some how escaped the witches  evil spell.

Her  loyal servant  and protector Polar Bear had  never left her  side , he  had guided her and loved her , he kept her safe  and well.

 

The  Winter Queen  had warned  them  that they  were embarking on a war

The  danger they were now facing  was one hundred times  more evil than they had ever faced before.

She  promised them that she would help  as the witch of the East had  dealt her some evil blows

She  hated the East witch  for deeds that had been dealt , The Queen wanted to witness the witch in her death throws.

Mae so dark and  the Queen  so pale,  mirrors, almost of each other

Both with Polar Bears set forth to revenge their loss, one  a father, the other her beloved brother.

So  now  we see them  setting off on a  quest of great danger  both bonded by lost love

Both determined to win, both  wanting to right the wrongs from the East to smite the witch from above!

 

AND SO THE TALE MOVES ON.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

CHAPTER 7

Mae  and Polar Bear , weary from their travels, could not believe  the sight

Together  with the Winter Queen  they had trudged on both day and night .

Where  were all the people  where are all the homes , the farms, the towns  and cities? Vanished, vanished  gone!

Tears  filled their eyes  they could not take any of this in… where was homeland …..this was  all wrong!

Mae’s  eyes burned but she refused  to cry ! Tell  me noble  Queen  how can I avenge this  wrong

Winter’s Queen , ice tears  frozen  on her cheeks turned  to Mae and said  we shall right this all bad shall we see gone.

Mount up mount  up cried  the Winter Queen  we must  find  the the wicked  witch of the East

Find  her lair, burn her, tear  her limb  from limb . She shall be stopped her face removed  , on her bones we shall feast.

They  met a child along the way,

Cold and frightened , mama mama was all he’d say.

Mae took the child and wrapped him in her cloak

Warmed the child, bodily, spiritually no words were spoke

Where are  your parents  little one

Mama gone , mama gone……………..

Hush  now child  you are safe  with us now  you will ride

She lifted  the child up onto Polar Bears  back, silently  she walked by his side.

Who could hurt the little child

Left  alone  and deserted  in the wild.

Frozen body frozen mind

This evil witch , was she this unkind

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER 8

The  little child  wwas  frightened  the little child was cold He only trusted Polar Bear , he clung to him with a hold

So strong  that no one, no even Mae  could break

So tired he slept on Polar’s neck, he could not stay awake.

 

The Winter Queen was curious she felt  she knew  the child

But  he would not let her near him, he screamed and just went wild.

Mae was most concerned she she could not understand why

The child trusted none of them,why it would only cry.

 

But they could  not stay there for too long

They had a quest to fulfil  they had to travel on.

There was nothing but desolation nothing growing for miles around,

No animals no flowers or crops and not even a single sound!!

 

Mae was so sad at the desolation that she saw

This was not her father’s  land , well not as it was before.

Silently  and slowly  the snow began to fall

It covered the dead landscape  and in white it shrouded our travellers all.

 

At length the child ceased crying  and fell asleep

The Winter Queen up to the child crept to have a peep.

I Know this child Mae  I am sure he is your half brother

Your father  sired him  when he and the evil witch  were lovers.

 

Polar Bear at once unsure if his  burden should  be shed

But Mae stroked his neck  and said no  my love  we cannot leave him for dead.

Polar Bear  look hard and long into Mae beautiful and kind eyes

He let the child snuggle further in  and said  I trust you Mae  for you are wise.

 

 

AND SO THEY JOURNEYED ONWARDS.

 

 

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 9

So for  now  lets  let Mae  sleep.

All her  dreams  and hopes inside  to keep.

Sleeping also in the land  of dreams  her little brother bound  to Mae  it seems.

 

Polar Bear is So  Good and kind  thoughts  of  Mae  fill his head .

The child  has  invaded  Polar Bear’s  mind , He now loves  the child  and forever he will treat him kind!

 

AND  SO WE LEAVE THEM ALL TO SLEEP  WE PRAY THE LORD THEIR SOULS TO KEEP.

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 10

The  child  too was  sleeping , dreaming of happier  days

Remembering his  mother,  the witch, and the happy games  they’d play.

His  father looking on  with love sparkling in his eyes

He felt  safe  and happy in his mothers  arms protected by his father, wise.

Sad feeling started  creeping in , fear washing  over his skin

His  mother and father were rowing  from his cot  he could hear the din.

She  screamed I did I banished your  daughters I killed  your  wife

I wanted  your love and  now I want  your life.

His father’s voice rose to a scream you killed  my wife the mother of my girls

Yes  she replied I wanted  you and  your power ,as her head turned her hair unfurled

There followed  a mighty fight the like of  which the palace  had  never seen

At once  all stood  still as the king died  all went grey, all colour devoid no blue  no green .

The palace gone the land devastated all gone . The Witch of  the East fled

The  child was left to wander  the no mans land . His mother gone and left him for dead.

The  child  awakes  with  a start  to find he feels  safe and cosy nestling  in Polar Bear’s  fur.

Looking  across he  see Mae  sleeping in the snow , he realizes  she is his sister  and reaches out to her

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 11

The child  suddenly  felt  the warmth of  love , it covered  him like the snow falling  from above.

He watched Mae  his  sister sleep , he  felt safe  enough to with Mae  and Polar  bear  keep.

He  heard  the Winter Queen’s bears gently  growling . He  felt love sing to him  through the winters  howling.

Comfy  nestled in Polar’s  fur  he felt  safe and without a care

Gently of a sudden  Mae  awoke  she smiled  and to the  lost child  spoke.

 

What is it little one ,you must know  what has  gone on.

Did  the Witch , you mother tell you what she had  done.

Did  she own to the killings  before  she up and fled and was gone.

You  have lost  your  father too,  do not fear I shall take care  of you.

 

Come  and  cuddle  me  and I shall sing  you a lullaby

Let us  be  happy together  no need for fear  no  need to cry.

And  so as all the others  slept Mae  sang  to her  little brother

The  two now bound in  great  sorrow  now  vowed  to help each other.

 

 

Until the morning we leave them  to sleep.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 12

And so  the dawn  creeps up relieving   the night of her  dark shroud .

The  sky looked as barren and empty  as  the land not  a fleck of cloud!

From out of  nowhere  came  two  visitors so beautiful  were they.

Horses  stallion and mare . They had come  to greet and  from here  to carry  the child  and Mae.

 

Polar Bear was pleased  to meet them, the Winter Queen  knew  them of old.

Mae and  the child  both  mounted  the mare  Mae  cuddled  her brother  against  the cold.

The  Winter  Queen  took to the Stallion who she rode  with pride

Her Polar  Bears unjealous trotted at  her side !

 

So they travelled across the  frozen wasteland

That was once  her home  the child with eyes  wide held tight  to her  hand.

Polar  Bear  walked  silent  behind relieved  to be on the move again

He only had one wish to return  to his  human frame

http://americangallery.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/snow-princess.jpg

Poor Polar Bear  was once a man

He  was charged  by  his dying  king  to protect his daughter  the best he can.

The Evil  witch of the East turned him into a Polar Bear

He  very soon fell in  love  with Mae for her  he really cared.

He  spent  two years  protecting Mae before he realized his love was all for her.

 

 

                                                      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 13

And  so they set off towards  the dawn, the bears  the  princess, the winter  Queen and  the boy.

Forward  into  their  kingdom  lost. The  winter scenes  and  the bleakness  brought  them  no joy!

Where  once  was were  fields and villages was now  only  desolation

The child  clinging  to  her,  Mae  could  not  believe her  eyes , the sight  was beyond contemplation.

 

Where  were all the  people, where were had the  villages and  the towns, all gone  the life  of old.

The witch  of  the East had  had  turned  a beautiful  land into an icescape, dull and cold.

An evil  spell  she had  woven, because she had  not  been given what  she had  demanded

She  wanted  the sole devotion of Mae’s  father , he  was was  not happy  to do as  she commanded .

 

Polar Bear  could  not believe  his  eyes , so he walked  looking down at  the ground.

The  beautiful  white  horses tried  to comfort  him  but so sad was he no solace  was to be found.

Mae  though  heart  broken  sort to  comfort  him  too, she realized  then  she loved  him with a love  so clear  and  true.

Gently setting  the  child  down  on the  horses back , she  dismounted  and  whispered in the mare’s ear. “I entrust  the child  to  you.

 

could not stand  to see such  pain , so  she  walked  and talked  with Polar Bear hoping  to ease his  strain.

The  Winter Queen  was  pleased  to see this blossoming of  love  she  knew  nothing  melted  ice  so fast  as love’s sweet refrain.

The  wind  was  icy  the snow  was  hard  but  our  party  ventured on , not  sure  where  they were  going  nor  yet  what  they would  find.

Surely  as  breath  follows  breath  Mae  and Polar  Bear  grew closer , their  love began to grow . Both  were beautiful  and  both were of a kind.

SO AGAIN WE  MUST LEAVE OUR  TRAVELLERS  TO TRAVEL ON

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 14

Onwards through  the cold, through  the forgotten lands travelled our  gallant  crew

Unsuspecting they were being spied on. By the  Wicked Witch of  the East  and her  sisters  two.

Her lover, in wolf from padded  to her  heels. Willing  our innocents  to a nasty  death.

Evil was in the air  all around  them, tangible, and  vile  was the scent  of their breath.

Ever  cunning  she sent her  owls  to watch their progress, one carrying an invitation for the company  to join her.

She  promised  she  meant  no  harm and  all she wanted  was  to have her  beautiful  son  back in  her  care.

No  mention of  her sisters, no mention  of  her wolverine lover .

Do not  trust  her Mae she is tricking  you , she is no loving  mother.

Polar Bear  was  first to sense  the trouble , he saw the birds advancing  from east.

One dropped  the invitation at  the Winter Queen’s  feet. They were all summoned to a royal feast.

The  Queen  and Polar  Bear  agreed  this was a trap  they were in danger and  so they took  heed.

They must  find  some allies to  fight  this Evil,  to save  the kingdom  which  was dying , and fast indeed.

Sending out  her fastest  bear the Winter  Queen  called  upon  her armies, and her friends armies to  meet  her here!

It grew  so dark they were unsure if  it were day  or  night.With only  snow , not a  landmark  left.

They did not know which  way was right. At  length  they had  to stop  as  they  were hemmed in  by  a snow drift.

 

The  witch sends  out  spell after  spell to unsettle  the friends and  confuse

Coloured lights adorn  the sky the glint from the snow make  the path  hard  to choose.

Yet something  keeps  them moving on,  something is on their side.

Mae  and  the child  feel the essence, could it be the spirit  of  their  father  who’d died.

WE MUST LEAVE  OUR  TRAVELLERS  FOR  NOW. 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

CHAPTER15

Please protect my  brother  please Polar Bear

I feel evil  all around us  from I don’t  know where.

The  Winter Queen  and I, must  our  enemy meet

Without  full knowledge of her plans we can  not her defeat.

Unhappy to stay  behind leaving Little Mae without  his protection

Felt wrong  to him , like  putting an offering  out  for the East Witch’s collection.

Yet  so adamant  was Mae the child was to be in his care

He agreed  to do as he was bid , to upset Mae  he did not dare.

7a4e131921948e7cc73d8b0094fc2a35-d3ea1rk.jpg

The  Winter Queen was ready , so beautiful, so very brave

She knew  the Witch of  the East, she knew exactly  how badly  she could  behave.

Polar Bear  so uneasy at Mae’s  plans  to visit the witch, feared  for her life.

He  warned the Winter Queen  if she returned  without  Mae  he would cause  her strife.

Mae, upset  but  touched  by Polar Bear’s threats to the Queen

Took  his paw  and promised  she would  return as would  the Queen.

The  Child  must  be kept safe  at whatever  the cost

Mae somehow  knew that  without  this child all would  be lost!

So the child was left in safety  with Polar Bear

Mae  knew  no one else could afford more care .

So out into the night, Out into the dark and the snow.

To face  what dangers the like of which we do not know.

SO WE LEAVE THE CHILD TO SLEEP SAFE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER16

Time  seemed suspended as  the small party  moved on

With their  eyes searching but not seeing , all landmarks gone.

The Queen though brave  felt dread in her heart

Not  knowing  if help would come in time , she had been uneasy from the start.

Mae rode Vlad, the Winter Queen’d most beloved Bear

He was strong , clever and fearless and of Mae  he would take care.

The cold was biting and the wind  froze  their breath

Though  all was covered  with snow , nothing could hide the smell of death.

The landscape barren, a forgotten frozen waste

Let  us hope that reinforcements come, and come with all haste.

As the travellers reach the end of the the valley  that they have been passing through

Mountains loom above them,there is no way round them, so to cross them is what, they will have to do.

Mae was struck  by horror this seemed an impossible task

But  the Winter Queen  assured her they could do this, but her fears were hardly masked!

Darkness was closing in  they could see it advancing  like a curtain of black

They stood there knowing the only way was forward , for there was no turning back.

Just when they felt that all was lost , a figure came towards them,as in a fairy tale!

It was the Winter’s brother who had been keeping watch for them in this ungodly gale.

Quickly  he shepherded them  back to  his battle camp.

With food and warmth  they thawed, relieved that for now they had ceased their tramp.

Ewen  was a noble man who loved his sister dear

As  soon as he received his sister’s call for help , his destiny was clear.

He had  and army  of a thousand  men, all of them good and true

But he knew he would need more as out of the Witch’s lair  thousands would spew.

Mae slept exhausted exactly where she had dropped

Ewen and his sister talked while keeping watch.Then with the dawn the snow stopped

The night passed quickly  and Mae was with her brother in her dreams

She suddenly  saw Polar Bear turn into the Witch of the East! Mae woke the whole camp with her terrified screams.

THE ROAD AHEAD FOR OUR TRAVELERS WILL NOT BE EASY. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER17

Deep within her castle . The evil witch of the East reached out her soul.

Over fields of snow and mountains high she soared though not whole.

She traveled straight to her enemies camp and into Polar bears mind!

At once Polar Bear awoke not as himself but as the wicked Witch.

Before anyone could move she grabbed  the child and was gone, her plan perfect, carried out without  a glitch.

Poor Polar Bear fell to the ground his body was still as still

For  with  the child  the Witch  had taken , also, Polar Bear’s  free will.

He lay there in a coma , this is what our  precious Mae  had  seen.

This horror was the reason that her screams had awoken her from her dream.

Mae  was inconsolable her fears were running riot
But however much she dreaded the worst, her terrors she had to quiet.

Ewen stood before her he had listened to what  she had seen

There is no hope of turning back  now, whispered the Winter Queen.

So with heavy  heart and sickening fear Mae mounted,  Vlad, her ride

Ewen  and his Sister  too astride their snow white bears moved swiftly  to her side.

They  sent out the Ravens  but sadly they new Mae’s dream was true.

Win or loose they had to fight the East Witch  there was nothing else that they could do.

Fly away faithful birds find for us the news

Of  the fate of Polar Bear and Mae’s half  brother too.

The party made their way up into the mountains

Step  by step they, not easy they made small gains.

The mountains were treacherous and they met many dangers on their way

Many tales of that journey I could tell but time is short so it must wait  for another day.

On they went through the fiercest storm the world had ever seen.

Some of Ewen’s brave men were lost, their lives given for Mae , the child and the Winter Queen.

SADLY THE DANGERS OF THE MOUNTAINS ARE NAUGHT TO WHAT LIES AHEAD.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 18

The way was treacherous, the weather evil and cruel

The storm was hindering them, impeding  their way and they were short on fuel.

Mae was tortured by visions of her brother  in the Witch of the East’s hold

Also those of her beloved Polar Bear prone inert upon the snow laid  cold.

Battling on as  best they can they faced  horror hither to unknown to man.

Fiery two headed dragons breathing ice and fire.Wolves so huge their legs each side of the road would span.

Yet they battled on ,the witch of the East was watching their every move

Every slip and fall they suffered she was watching , it was working wonders on her mood!

http://www.cnycentral.com/

Spitefully she smiled  as they suffered  cold and hunger pangs

She found solace in their agony , she thrived on their pain

It truly excited her to see them struggling and suffering strain.

Taking pleasure in their toils  she encourage the child to join her in this game.

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 19

The child’s affections  were taken by the Witch of the East

She was feeding his ego and dark  side, encouraging his beast.

What ever he wanted his tiniest whim

She indulged and pampered making sure  she spoiled him.

 

This was her baby, we know  this is true

But to take spite on Mae was, above  all things,  what she wanted to do.

Already  he was demanding and pouting  if denied

The witch  fed his tempers and cuddled him when he cried .

 

He was no longer asking for his beloved sister Mae

The witch had made  certain all thoughts of his life before were blown way.

All of his days  in her palace  spent having his own way

His  mother by birth she may be, yet it is evil that drives her as she keeps the child in sway.

 

Meanwhile  the Winter Queen has found  water and feed  for the horses

Ewen and his men are still as strong in their support of  Mae, yet so uncertain  of what their course is.

Three weeks now  they have been struggling  through the blinding snow

This is Mae’s homeland  but she is lost , there is not a landmark or a person , this land she does not know.

 

Mae  feels the pain in her heart for her stolen brother ,

Polar Bear suffers the pain of an unrequited lover .

Ewen and his men feel the cold , lost in this wasteland their hope begins to die and wither.

Mae begins to wonder if they will ever reach their goal, why did she accept  the Witch of the East’s summons hither.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 20

The way had been arduous with treacherous mountains passes

The travelers  and  Ewen’s army had been brave and strong in their advances.

Then came the cold grey dawn of the first day of the fourth week

Mae’s castle home stood before them, they had reached the goal they seek.

Everyone was frozen by the sight of the once beautiful castle and city

Gone was it’s glow , it look base and dark , Mae shed a tear of pity.

Mae  thought to herself, what has happened to my home

Oh! she thought, my poor sweet brother is in there on his own.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 21

http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_maskcmiJyC1rwbpxs.jpg the Winter Queen and Little Mae

As rooted  to the spot  they stood

Man, Fairy all akin bound in brotherhood!

The sight before them enough to freeze  the soul

Was this  what they had come to claim was this truly the goal?

 

Of a sudden a roar of hundreds horns

Broke the dark night’s silence like the breaking of a thousand dawns.

A shaft of light hit the castle walls  and out  from every orifice demons and devils crawled.

They  came even though they shielded their eyes for they did not like the light  .

 

A moment of shock, then Ewen recovered  his voice

Line up  my men and elves line up  we fight  we have no choice!

Mae  shivered at  the thought  that Polar Bear lay close to death

And her kin was that Castle yonder within, out of touch yet in a hair’s breadth !

 

Inside the castle behind thick walls the evil witch of the East sat in an empty hall

Though the arrow slits  she saw Ewen’s army she willed  Ewens’ men to fall.

And the men loyal to the Winter Queen she cursed, her spite made her ugly.

She crossed the room and wove a spell over the sleeping  boy so he’d never be free.

 

 

WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT TO OUR HEREOS  WHAT LIES IN STORE FOR THEM

WISH THEM WELL MY FRIENDS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 22

Out  the demons came, evil incarnate

Our Heroes held their line  hoping death was not their fate.

Stand your ground cried Ewen wait until you smell their breath

Do your best to sever their heads men it is the only way they will meet their death.

The winter Queen had her polar  bears at the ready

She cautioned Mae  to cling to Vlad and to fire her arrows steady!

Mae cried I am ready now to fight for my father’s honest name.

I swear I shall right all the wrong  and restore this land again!

The winter Queen threw off  her cloak and and waved her sword on high.

Mae  clung on to Vlad and followed her into battle screaming “Victory for  my kind or  I die.

The Battle raged day and night the demons never tired.

No sooner were the demons chopped down  more of them were sired!

Sword on shield, arrow on shield Blood and skin on the battle field.

Then  Just as they thought  nothing could  get worse

The Evil witch of  the East  sent  her evil dragons out like a curse!

On and on they came one after the other getting  larger and and  more fierce.

They waded into the Humans and the fairies killing them their screams the dawn  did pierce.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 23

As the battle raged , uneven as it was Polar Bear slept in the East witch’s spell

He could not wake  from Morpheus’s hold, he had to watch as his loved ones go through hell .

From his eyes, tight shut, escaped tears of pain,  he reached out to slay the dragons, in vain

Like a puppy  caught in a dream his limbs twitched and flickered,he howled in his head again and again.

A passing angel heard his moans  and took pity on him.

She saw how exposed he was,  and realized the danger he was in.

On his back she lay to keep him warm, to try and ease his grief

Such pain she felt reading his thoughts knowing that she could afford him no relief.

 

Meanwhile Mae and the others  held their own against the demons and the dragons might

Many fell but they held the line and prayed for help to arrive, from the entreaties they had sent to allies to join their fight.

So from yellow dawn they fought till darkest night such  horrors they faced. There was nothing more that they could do.

So they  prayed  for help and in the meanwhile made sure their swords and arrows sped straight and true!

 

 

ONCE AGAIN WE LEAVE OUR HEROES IN THE LAP OF THE GODS,

AND POLAR BEAR IN THE ARMS OF AN ANGEL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 24

The  battle raged  for days then came the ending of the seventh day

All was but lost, such awful wounds suffered on both sides

There was nothing left to do the Winter Witch  took to her knees to pray

Mae Bade, Ewen farewell and left  the battle  field and headed to where the Witch of the East hides.

Ewen and his men also fell to their knees and prayed to which ever God  or Gods  they followed

They watched as the dragons and the demons divided as Mae past

Mae walked up to her old home,  so sullied.  She disappeared into the gates as if she had been swallowed.

Both  sides halted fighting  as at one command.

Ewen when to help the Winter Queen rise but she remained fast.

Into  the dark, cold corridors went Mae , where once  was joy and laughter

All warmth  and colour  gone no sign of her  former happy life.

Nothing  left of her family , not one sign,  just snow and icicles hanging from all the rafters.

No sign  of her sister   or her father gone, destroyed was every sign  of her former life.

With heavy heart and fear  pressing on  her chest

Mae Entered  the throne room to find  the Wicked East Witch seated on her throne

Mae took in a sharp breath, it was so cold . Yet more than  that sadness washed over her and down on her soul pressed.

Entering  the once warm and inviting great hall she came eye to eye   with the woman for whom her hatred had grown.

Sleeping  Polar  Bear

Still in the angels care

For under the East Witches spell

I fear it will not end well…………………..

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 25

“At last you have decided to show some sense”

Hissed  the witch of the East

“What have you to say in your defense ?”

Mae could not believe her ears such words from this female beast!

“Why do I need to defend myself to you”

Mae asked her temper, for the first time rising.

“I am not in the wrong here, no, that is you!”

Her hand around her sword hilt tightening, she look amazing , even frightening.

The Witch stood and seemed to grow filling all the room

Standing her ground  Mae  faced her arch enemy.

Sweat ran down Mae’s back she feared that she might swoon

A shaft  of silver moonlight shone through the window so Mae  could see.

Why have you turned this beautiful kingdom into a dark night

You killed  my father  and you have banished  my sister , why

What  have  we ever done to you , why  use us to vent  your spite.

You  have my half brother here, I know he is here I heard him cry.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHAPTER 26

“Yes I have  the child “replied the Witch  of the East

“He  is mine and on his innocence I feast!”

“Then why did I find him lost and alone in the snow?”

asked Mae.

The Witch told Mae ” I sent him out to snare you didn’t you know.

I needed him to gain your trust and love so I could reel you in. It worked  well my dear.

For your army is within my domain and you Mae, you are here!”

Mae’s temper flared this evil woman was laughing at her.

Eyes  flashing  Mae  raised her sword to the, now giant witch , “No, No” screamed Mae!!

“You evil bitch”, you  shall not win this day.

Mae advanced her eyes were wild and flashing ,

Whirling  her sword at the witch she advanced and down upon  her brought it crashing!

A high  pitch squeal was heard, it was the boys scream, followed by  the East witch laughing.

She had tricked Mae who now was shocked to see the boy child cut in two

His life’s blood oozing out, dead, dead the child was dead what was poor Mae to do?

Just in time  Mae turned to see hordes of demons, eyes a blaze slavering for her, fast advancing

Mae saw no other way but to turn and run . Out through the doors her eyes with fear dancing.

As she reached the courtyard Ewen  saw her plight

He called upon his men to help her,  he shouted  “save Mae, men fight!!”

Still Polar bear is trapped  under the East Witch’s spell

Trapped in a nightmare having to watch Mae’s agony, in his own hell.

An angel is with him trying to easy  his pain

But  she feel his anguish making him cry out  again and again………………

CHAPTER  27

Loud the noise of battle , bloody and debauched. The bodies of the dead stacked high

The smell of rotting flesh assaults  the throat, and burns the eye . The stinking smell raises to the sky.

The wounded lay in filthy piles, demons and maggots gnawing on their wounds

Their screams of fear and pain add to the  impending doom.

 

The Witch of  the East watched through the rain

Enjoying  the smell and screams of agonizing pain.

She was aroused by the smell of fear and hate

Summoning  one of her minions her desire to sate.

 

The Battle raged  below while she in carnal acts

Took such pleasure from a hound of hell, with his master she had a pact.

The noise they made could be hear below in the battle

Men shuddered at the sound, the demons were aroused and stampeded like cattle.

 

Mae and Ewen held  the line

Fight on fight on he pleaded all will be fine .

How  can that awful screaming scare us so?

It is a sound no human should ever have to know.

 

Mae was chilled to the bone, her soul felt almost frozen.

Her thoughts went to her beloved Polar Bear.

Where was he, she needed him. He had sworn he always would be there for her.

Tired so tired Mae could hardly raise her sword.

 

At first she did not feel the pain

Then it awoke in her as she was struck again and again.

Brave Mae  took the savage beating .

Then in went the blade as she fell her thoughts still fleeting .

 

Up in the castle  the demon and Witch both both reached  a climax

He exhausted, she her skin all torn blood flowing  in tracks.

Heaving and sweating with lust

She threw him off though he was in mid thrust.

 

The Witch felt Mae’s wounds and her pain.

Though in agony  she smiled  seeing now  her end game.

Dragging herself over the demon’s

quivering body,

The Witch crawled towards the window leaving a trail all bloody.

 

With an evil glint in her eye she saw Mae’s plight

She watch as Ewen  sped to her aid moving at full flight.

Her heart beat faster as Ewen took Mae’s bleeding body into his arms

Smiling  she crawled back to her demon lover to drink of him , she had no qualms.

Ewen bore Mae away to rest to heal to sleep

It hurt him so to see her wounds. Out loud  he did weep.

Mae found  Polar Bear in her dream, helped by an angel with raven hair.

He stretched out and  touched Mae , she felt safe now he was here with her.
