12. Start of The Journey

Emma: 

Darcy rode fast, never slowing, never faltering. It seemed as though he could run forever. Narnia changed a bit from when I was last here, of course a lot does in 200 years, even so, the changes surprised me. The trees were taller, the land formations changed as well. A couple times I got lost, and that is me now. Lost. The sun went down a while ago, and the sky is cloudy - how am I supposed to tell the direction now? 

Realising that I didn't know where I was, or which direction to go. I stopped Darcy mid stride, and almost flew off him from the speed he stopped. Letting out a relieved sigh I got off him and started to set camp. Once I had a fire going it wasn't too bad, and soon I was asleep. 

When I awoke, I was on a couch. On a couch. What? I opened my eyes to see an elderly woman making a fire. I slowly unsheathed my white sword and hid it under a soft blue blanket which covered me. The woman turned around and I pretended to be asleep again. It didn't work. 

"Your awake!" She exclaimed, clapping her hands cheerfully. I reopened my eyes, the woman was sitting across me, pulling her hair into a bun. 

"Who are you? And how did I get here?" I asked sitting up, still keeping my sword hidden. 

"I brought you here of course!" She said happily, removing a clump of excess hair from her face, revealing a jagged scar that started above her left eye and ended just below her lips. 

"Why?" I asked, tying not to stare at the wound. 

"Well, because I saw a lovely girl lonely in my fields, without a blanket or pillow. Only a horse and weapons." She said smiling, her teeth yellow and black, most of them missing. Again I tried not to stare, remembering my wounds before, the jagged scars that covered my face, neck, torso, and back, and some of my arm too. I hated when people looked at my like I was some kind of monster. And the one person who didn't care about my appearances was Patten. I tried to give her the same courtesy he gave to me.

"I would have left in the morning. Once I figured the direction." I said a little confused. 

"I guessed, but I sill right you would like to rest a bit before getting back on the road. That reminds me! Why are you traveling alone, on a wild horse, with weapons?" The woman asked. 

"I am seeking a friend. Her name is Brooke. Alana, the high queens advisor, told me she lived out this way." I said realising she didn't know who I was. The old woman nodded. 

"And how did you get to know the high queens advisor?" She asked, a little too curious. I dug through my bag the woman sat besides the couch and took out my crown.

"Because I am the queen." And like that, the old woman stood up - dropped to her knees and bowed, pressing her forehead to the ground. 

"I'm sorry, I did not know my queen!" She said loudly, not moving. I stood up and walked around the room, taking the liberty of being a queen to the next level as I snooped around. The woman stayed in her spot, not moving an inch. 

"What is your name?" I asked looking back down at her.

"Autumn, your majesty." 

"Autumn, huh, well... thank you for bringing me into your humble home." I said softly picking up a painted bowl. It was quite beautiful, and I wondered who made it. 

"My honor, your majesty." Autumn said in almost a whisper. I walked around the room again trying to find anything that I didn't see before. "You are looking for Brooke, the fawn?" I nodded. "She lives a week north of here, near the mountains." I nodded again, already ready to leave. 

"Thank you for the directions. You may rise." I said. Autumn stood and walked to a cupboard and took out a map. 

"I'll mark the fastest root, and you can leave whenever you wish, your majesty." I nodded as the woman marked the map then handed it to me. 

"Thank you again. I'll leave at noon." 

 

The sun was high in the sky, and I was sitting on Darcy facing north. "Have a nice trip my queen! Stay safe!" Autumn yelled. I looked back at the old lady to see her waving goodbye, smiling her missing toothed smile. I spurred Darcy into a run and we were off.
