My mother. That is all I want as I tear through the castle. My hair falls down, to a few inches above my waist as I run. I find her wine tasting at a fancy table in the kitchen.
"Queen Bri!" The chef exclaims, "what a nice surprise."
"Mother," I say, ignoring the chef's attempt to call me queen, "I need to talk to you."
"Why of course, dear." my mother replies.
I tell my mother all about the earth friends I have. She was quite excited to hear all about it.
"I want to see them." I tell her.
"You can," my mother explains, "wear the moonlight crystal around your neck tonight when you fall asleep." she says, "And you will dream. A river will appear, jump into it. That is the only way to see your friends."
"The only way?" I repeat.
"Yes the only way," mother replies, "but I warn you, if you see a Dream Elf, stay away. They will try to capture you, for royalty are the most valuable prisoners."
"I will be careful," I reassure her, "the Dream Elf packs patrol the river, right?"
That night, I wore the moonlight crystal and went to bed.
