I woke up early, and wrapped a clean dress around me, tightened the ribbon, and brushed my hair. Then I ran down the curvy stairs. Grabbing my bow and my quiver full of arrows (that I made myself in my spare time, since nobody would sell them to me because I'm a Lady-elf) I ran outside and into the deeper part of the forest.
"Lady Mirilanda!" The tree-pixies squeaked at me, "What are you doing up so early- and with a bow?!"
I curtsied to them, and kept running, jumping over rocks. Then I came to my arching spot and put the arrow to the bow.
I missed one completely, then got a bad score, then an alright score, and then SPOT-ON! Got it!
After a few hours of arching, the pixies came to me and told me that my father was looking for me.
I went back to the village.
"Mirilanda!" My father shouted at me.
"Good Morning, father," I smiled, hiding the bow behind my back.
"Where have you been? I have been worried sick!"
"I- I went to chat with the pixies," I lied.
"One minute father."
I ran to my tree, and put the bow and my now empty quiver back inside.
I met father and the rest of the villagers in the Dining Hall.
"You're late!" My father mouthed to me.
The maids came out, carrying the wood-plates.
"Bread for Lady Mirilanda,"
"Water from the Crystal Waterfall for the Princess Mirilanda,"
"Lemon for the Lady,"
"Here, dear Mirilanda, will you try some of this wine? I mixed it with-"
"Mirilanda, eat up, you look too thin!"
"As I was saying, I mixed it with-"
"Do you want this, Mirilanda?"
"SHUT UP! It is my turn to give her some of this wine I mixed with-"
Just then the other maid whacked the wine that was mixed with something else out of the maid's hand. It was poured all over me.
I pursed my lips and looked at them in disappointment.
"My dear Lady!"
"You fool! Come Mirilanda, we will clean you up."
They dragged me from the table, and I stole the loaf of bread and brought it with me, eating as we went along.
The maids guided me to the Waterfall of Mirilanda, named after my great-great-great-great-great grandmother.
There they tugged off my dress and shoved me in.
"AHHHH!!!!!!!!" I screamed as I went toppling in.
I landed on a rock, and I sat there as the other maids leaned over the sides, and brushed my hair, filled bowels with water and poured it over my head.
Why do they make such a fuss over me?
