If you want to live, let live.
If you want to go, let go.
I'm never gonna be your sweet, sweet surrender.
Guess it wasn't real after all.
Guess it wasn't real all along.
If I fall and all is lost,
No light to lead the way,
Remember that all alone is where I belong.www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nfI36…

previous:fav.me/d8ocmha"Mother always told us stories about this place how bad it is and how everything, alive or not, wants to kill you. Well of course I'm just entering this place but it doesn't look that bad... at least for me. Maybe I just fit in here... maybe this is the place where I belong. I feel at home. With the darkness surrounding me. I will no longer be Siyah.
This place is filled with monsters, but I am one too.
From now on my name will be O'Lim, dead. Siyah is dead. I can never return to the person I once was."
After entering Pozar, Siyah searched for a place to stay. She found a small lake with a waterfall and thought it would be a good place to rest. She took the saddle from Narayda's back and sat down on a rock. It was strange. Since she arrived here, she felt way better. The pain from her burn was fading and she felt inner rest. She looked at Narayda who was playing with the water. Siyah never smiles on the outside, but that doesn't mean she isn't smiling. She smiles on the inside. She just learned how to hide her feelings.
It was quiet on Pozar. Very quiet. But sometimes that silence was insidious. But now she heard something for the first time. At first she thought it was Narayda but Narayda was staring at something. Siyah tried to figure out where Narayda was staring at. Then she saw it. There was something coming towards them. It was like some red glowing lights floating around through the forest, but that would be strange... wouldn't it?
The lights came closer and closer. Siyah got up from the rock ready to attack. When the lights arrived at the lake, Siyah saw it weren't only lights. It was some creature. A creature with a pitch black skin, a mouth full of sharp teeth and red glowing wounds. It ran towards her and just when she wanted to attack the creature, it stopped right in front of her and sat down. Siyah looked confused. It wasn't going to attack her? It wasn't going to kill her?
Siyah sat down again on the rock and the creature started to wag it's tail. Siyah pulled up her arm and hesitated for a moment, but then patted the creature. Siyah looked at the body of the creature. It was covered with bleeding wounds.
'Why are you bleeding? Are you hurt?'
'Because he is a Darahkar. When they get wounded they will bleed eternally. That's why they have to drink the blood from their preys. Drinking blood keeps them from bleeding to death.'
Siyah looked to her right. There was suddenly a little girl standing next to her.
'Who are you?' asked Siyah.
'Who I am isn't important. The question is who you are.'
'Nobody.' aswered Siyah.
'You know, I don't think that's true... you see, Darneash usually kills every creature on his way. But with you, he is acting like a puppy.'
Siyah looked at the Darahkar. His red glowing eyes staring at her. Then she looked at the girl next to her. She was still very young, probably something like ten years old, she had black hair and brown eyes.
'The name is O'Lim' Siyah said.
The girl looked at Siyah's necklace and bent forward to touch it but Siyah grabbed the girls arm.
'Don't touch it.'
'Where did you get that?' asked the girl while she pulled her arm back.
'My father gave it to me.' Siyah got sick of all those questions. She thought she would finally be left alone but obviously, she wasn't the only person on this island.
'You know what that is?' the girl asked while looking straight at Siyah.
'I really have no idea! maybe a necklace?' Siyah said ironically.
'O'Lim, this is not just a necklace. You are a member of the royal family. Not just a member, You are the queen! That's why Darneash didn't attack you, he smelled your royal blood.'
Siyah stared with a meaningless face at the girl.
'What in the world are you talking about?' asked Siyah.
'Your dad's name is Hegon, right?'
'Yes it is. How do you know?'
'Because I knew him. He was the leader of Pozar before he left. But it looks like he left his kingdom to you. Come, I'll show you.'
Siyah really didn't want to follow the girl. But the girl just told her something nobody else ever told her. Was it true? Had her father been here? Why did nobody tell her?
She wanted to find out. She called Narayda and together they followed the girl. The strange little girl who is more or less ten years old and knew her father... If her father was king here, then that must have been more than sixteen years ago... How can a ten year old girl possibly know him? Something strange was going on here...
I'm actually very happy with how this piece turned out!
