Shade - Pixie.
Hastily I got on one knee but she laughed; not harshly but gently.
"Child, you need not bow to me. You, Shade, are like my third child after the Sun and Rainbow," she explained. I rose and couldn't help but gape at her. She was remarkably beautiful with thick, heavy, brown hair that fell to the small of her back. There were autumn leaves entwined in her hair and her eyes were a vivid green that sparkle with her love. And her face? She looked as ancient as the universe yet as youthful as a child.
"The Sun is your child?" I stuttered and Nature smiled.
"Yes, my oldest child. The Rainbow is my second child," she told me kindly but then her ancient face grew sad. "My third child there are many difficulties ahead for the Pixies and there is only so much I can do. While in this world, I have created, you Pixies are safe, decide to venture into the other world then you are vulnerable. It is your job to pass on this message and take charge of the entire Pixie race."
"Me?" I squeaked, "But I'm not special or capable! If I were then I could have saved those who died." Nature began to laugh.
"You are so special and capable that there is no one who is your equal," she assured me, "Your instincts are great and your powers unique. No one else at the present time could have had the power to reach me to make a request." Her head snapped around to stare into the trees. She looked back at me and examined me for the first time.
"Hm," was all she said. I could feel myself blushing. What must she think of my torn clothes, my bloody face and dirty skin? She stepped towards me and kissed my forehead. I closed my eyes at how... great I felt. Happy and peaceful. The wind fluttered around me and then I felt her leave.
I opened my eyes and gasped. I was clean, I wasn't caked in dirt and blood and I had a pristine, white dress on with green vine patterns. Nature had also given me some silver strappy sandals. My skin was shining more brightly than usual as well. I began to laugh simply because I was so light hearted.
It was then they found me. My Pixies. Their relief was quickly replaced by shock.
"What happened to you?" Erive asked.
"Tried to stop the others and then Nature brought us all here. No one else can enter this world, only Pixies. We're safe in this world but if we leave then we're at a risk," I blushed, "I, um, asked Nature to help us to escape and hide." They stared at me before shaking their heads in wonderment. Then they grabbed my arms and bgan to drag me through the woods.
"Come on, we must hurry. There is much to be done and much to be explained," Erive informed me.
