Memories of the Past
The light elf slowly walked towards the old gnarled tree. She smiled slightly glad to see it was still there. Time had changed so much and her world was no longer her own. But that tree had stayed, though much bigger than she remembered it to be. It was strange for it to still be alive after 1000 years. Tears brimmed under her eyes, ~Did you wait for me?~ Perhaps it had. She stood below it and folded her wings against her back sighing softly. She looked overhead searching for a branch or foothold. Upon finding one she began to make her way up. Though definitely her tree it had aged and changed. The last she’d seen the tree it had been only big enough for someone of her size to sit up in. Finally as she climbed higher the branches became familiar and she knew exactly where to put her tiny bare feet. She sat down on a branch looking about the tree, slivers of moonlight lighting up the leaves and trunk. A bittersweet smile crossed her lips and she laid down on the bough With a small swipe of her hand the old and dead leaves clinging to the trunk like memories past were brushed away reveal a very old heart carved into the wood. She traced the letter R slowly with her thumb and then slowly over the J beneath it. A tear trickled down her face rolling of her cheek unto the carved symbol. ~Are you still here…~* She let out a small sob and looked up at the sky through the branches and leaves.
*~...or have you forgotten?~
