FanFoFeb: Mae and Polar Bear. 12/02/2014

“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………………

FanFoFeb : Mae and Polar Bear 08/02/2014

“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.

FanFoFeb : Mae and Polar Bear. 04/02/14

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…………………..

JusJoJan : Mae and Polar Bear. 26/01/14

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.

JusJoJan : Mae and Polar Bear : 19/01/14

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.

JusJoJan: Little Mae and Polar Bear 09/01/14

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.

May and Polar Bear : 02/01/14

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!

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.

 

 

 

EvDaDaDec: Mae and Polar Bear. 31/12/12

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.

EvDaDaDec: Little Mae and Polar Bear 30.12.13

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. 

EvDaDaDec: Little Mae and Polar Bear. 22.12.13

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
