It was past midnight. That’s all Cassie really knew for sure. Well, that and she was starving. The woman had been travelling for weeks on nothing but nuts, berries, and the occasional wild game. With the change of seasons, Cassie, knew that she had to make it to town or else she’d be mistaken for this year’s best hunt.

Memories of the Tsavo twins flooded her mind as Cassie wiped a stream of tears she hadn’t noticed before. “Damn emotions.”

A cold wind passed through the young girl’s body as she shivered and looked back to the forest she had hidden away in for the past few weeks. “I’ll be back next year, Forêt Douce, I promise.” The girl’s lip quivered as she nodded and pulled a hoodie that was hanging from the last tree on her path and tied the sleeves around her waist.

It wasn’t long until Cassie saw lights from a small town. She clasped her hand over the Celtic Knot necklace that hung over her heart and took one last deep breath. For the next seven months, she’d have to pretend to be an average human again, a feat that she had never done with much success before. “There’s always one who sees through, always one who makes at least the last two months a living nightmare. Trust noone, Cassie. Don’t forget about last year.”

The previous year, Cassie met a young man she thought she could trust. He was noble, caring, and honest. It was the last part that ruined it. As soon as Cassie revealed her secret, she was outed.

“More tears,” Cassie noted as she rubbed her eyes, but one tear fell to a puddle from a recent storm. The young female looked over her appearance; everything except her necklace was new.

“Slim neck. Arms with some tone. Purple eyes. Those will be hard to convince on. Maybe a magic spell gone awry from a previous lover, and I kept them because who wouldn’t want purple eyes? What’s next? Breasts. 34B. Lips.” Cassie pursed her lips then chuckled and stuck out her tongue, biting on it softly. “Soft and small. Shoulders aren’t broad. My stomach isn’t tiny either, so that’s a plus. I hated being a sapling. People kept trying to feed me.”

Cassie started to walk away then took a step back and smiled. “Almost forgot the lower half. The rear is… well it looks fine enough, but these hips and legs. My gods, did the sprites want me everyone to stare at me? As soon as I get to town, I’m changing out of my shorts, and I’m finding some baggy jeans. As for the rest of my body…” Cassie pulled on her hoodie and made her way to the town’s entrance.

She estimated that there was at least one hour before dawn, possible two. More than enough time to find a place to rest, even in a small town. Well, honestly, it was only small compared to the moving forest, Forêt Douce, which was comparable to some of the larger cities.

This place was still large enough to have more than three guards keeping watch overnight. Cassie nodded to them as she looked for a good place to stay or for the first person willing to keep her in for a day or two.
Our Mess and Confusion
A friend of mine and I recenty started working on a new story together. This is my first post on it. I may add details to what's being done later, but this is all I want in here for now.

So after years of almost nothing, I'm back with a vengeance. I can't promise that I'll be here as much as I was before, but I'll be here, writing, doodling, working on things that I love, and chatting with the people who like me and/or my work. My style has changed a bit, but I recently came back to my old characters. I'm currently working on two big projects that are bound to show up on here soon. :) See you soon.

No problem. I figured I owed it to you for watching me all these years, even though I've been inactive for quite a while.

I've been pretty overwhelmed. This is the first time I've been on dA this year. I have a daughter, and I'm about to have my own business up and running. How have you been?
