My head was pounding as I started to regain consciousness. It felt as if I hadn't slept all night and read instead.
'... the magic boundary was too strong for her, she's not used to it,' Hester's voice floated over to me. Damn it. I was hoping I was still kinda dreaming in a way.
I opened my eyes to find Hester hovering over me, her face creased up in concern. She smiled as I started to sit up.
'How are you feeling?' she asked worriedly. I did a mental check over my body. Other than the pounding headache I seemed to be all in one piece give or take which was good.
'I'm alright,' I say. As my vision came into more focus, I started to notice my surroundings. It felt as if I was in Rivendell. The walls arched high above me, pale white to reflect the warm sun coming from the opening of my.. chamber? around the room was several pieces of dark wood delicate furniture. A wardrobe. A chair. A vanity table. And of course the bed on which I was sitting upon. Out through the window I could see lush greenery, shrubs dotted around a courtyard that had walkways over the other side of a majestic tree swirled in the middle. It took my breath away how magical the place was.
'..... should be alright though,' Hester's voice snapped me out of my reverie. I tried to get out of bed but as soon as I moved an inch too quick a quickly became dizzy.
'Slow down dear, you shouldn't move too fast. Maybe you should meet the White Stag later on,' Hester fussed over me as she tries to get me to lay back down. White Stag?!
'Who is the White Stag? Wait! I want to meet them!' I let out, as I swat her hands away determined to help my mother out.
'You nee-,' Hester started.
'I don't care, every minute we waste, the more she is in danger!' A rise of confidence surged me as I said the words. Hester looked at my outburst wordlessly as she stared at me. I got shy and could feel myself shrink a bit.
'Sorry, I uh-'
'No sorry dear, I understand you want to be reunited with your mother as quickly as possible,' she smiled at me warmly. Taking a deep breath, I start to stand up; fighting against the waves of dizziness attacking my head.
