    Private Tales The Valley in Her Shadow

    There she ist again, walking barefoot. At least, he could only guess the figure was a she. She glowed too brightly in the sunbeams, draped in translucent cloth that seemed to hang with dampness. Her hair whipped about as she turned her head to check on him, guide him down a path in these...

    [art cred] Noa was not quite at the Astenvale Monastery although she was most definitely on route towards it, not that the blind knight felt any sort of rush.

    Fable - Ask Pretense of Spring Within the Sleeping Mountain

    [art cred is by Philipp Urlich] Noa knew it was evening from the serenade of crickets that surrounded her and to speak now would only emit an echoing tune of dissonance within the peaceful chorus of the wood near Astenvale Monastery .

    Some time ago... "...Why are you crying?" "You're stronger than I am. All of us, Syr Raye," the young Squire said, his face flushed red with frustration. "I understand the technique. You've drilled it into us since the wee hours of the morning. How are all of us supposed to overcome you?"...

    Open Chronicles The Run

    Soft rays of light from the sun danced with the breaks of tree limbs, giving way to patches of warmth that Ashling found herself entranced with.
