Hello everyone! Welcome to Chapter 3 of my story! They'll be PLENTY more, so hang on!

Thanks to everyone who has rated, commented & read my story. It means a lot to me :)

Again, I'm sorry they're so short, but they end exactly where I went to, mostly because in later chapters they'll be more reading. I don't want to bore anyone :D

Hello everyone! Welcome to Chapter 3 of my story! They'll be PLENTY more, so hang on!

I woke up the next morning feeling slightly more ill then the previous night. I didn't quite grasp this 'Blight Fever', but I knew it was making me more ill with each passing moment. I dressed in my Ceremonial gown, white for pure soul.
White was the color Andraste wore when she was combined with The Maker, at least that's the lore.
I still wish Eruien would have done it. Even though Tamlen was my bestfriend, my brother, my bond, I couldn't bare to say goodbye. My eyes started to swell up, one by one they trickled down my flustered cheek. It was a beautiful morning.
That morning still haunts me in my dreams.

Hope still crossed my mind that this was all a horrible dream.

"Serin dos toror" I whispered into the wind.
I couldn't hold it in any longer.

I had lost everything, I was completely alone in the world. I cupped my face inside my hands, and cried. My heart was torn into tiny pieces, & most of those pieces were with Tamlen.
'Sinome mela rip' was all his grave said. Every Dalish Elf is buried in the river, to be one with nature, the Maker & Andraste, but Marethari thought it was best to give him a proper tribute. Something to carry on long after we're gone.

After 20 years of friendship, arguments, and adventures, it had all come down to this moment. This single moment which changed my life.
"Emiliea, I'm sorry you do not have proper time to mourn, but I must speak to you" I nodded for him to continue, whipping the warm tears from my eyes.
"There is something to help against the fever, but you need to come with me..." he paused a moment, looking into my eyes, searching.

"Come with you where?" I was confused, I did not like the words this Human spoke. I wonder if they were all this stupid...

"You need to come with me to Ostagar, everything will be explained later, I would suggest packing light, the journey will take about two weeks..."
"Oh Emiliea, I love you dearly, must you go?" Eruien had been crying for the past few days, I think she ran out of tears.

"I'm afraid I must, I will see you again soon, do not worry.." we embraced, as much as I wanted to believe it wouldn't be our last, in the back of my mind I knew it would be.
"My dear child, I love you so. Please take care of yourself?" Marethari was always filled with kind words, she was like a mother to all of us.

"Do not worry Marethari, I will see you again..." She did not want to say it, but I can tell what she was thinking when she looked in my eyes. I was right after all, I was never going to see her again. I was never going to see Eruien again. I would never see my home again.

"Elee o lle, my young one, may the Maker protect you"
"Should we leave now?" I was reluctant to go, but although I did not know it then, I know it now, that I would have put my Clan in danger if I had stayed, it was better that I left.

"Yes, we have much to discuss & not much time. I sense a new Era is upon us"
Thanks for reading! :)
