After Roan opens up about his past to Violet, they find a strange little house... "It's all right, Violet," He said, "I feel I'm a better person now. But I really do worry about Mother and Augusta being with that horrible man." he sighed, "Anyway, we should really check out that hut,"
"What hut?" I asked, confused. I instinctively twisted my head and saw the little house at the side of the lake. How could I have missed that?
"Uh, I don't think so, something could be in there,"
"Well I'm going," He said and started walking towards the hut. When he was nearly at the door, I changed my mind. What could happen? I asked myself. I was just being too cautious.
"Hey!" I called to Roan, "Wait up!"
I had to run to catch up with him. He put his hand on the door handle and twisted it, he pushed the door open.
"Hello?" He said, his voice echoing.
Silence answered him and he stepped into the hut.
The room before him was furnished with two beds and a wardrobe. All were covered in a thick layer of dust.
"Roan, I'm going to see if there's anything decent in the wardrobe to wear. So could you please...?" I said. He looked at me a second, processing what I'd just said,
"Oh!" He said, "Of course," and he left the room.
I wiped the dust from the handle of the wardrobe and opened it. To my surprise there was a dress and some underwear the exact same as what I was wearing before. I tugged my wet underwear off and dragged the dress and new underwear over my damp skin. It was pleasantly warm to be fully clothed again.
I went outside and joined Roan, who was closely examining a rock.
"That dress is exactly like the one before," He said observantly,
"There's also clothes for you in there as well, it's like some one knew we'd come here,"
"Strange," He said and went back into the hut.
"We can't stay here," He said as soon as he'd come out of the hut, "We need food and there doesn't seem to be any fish in the lake,"
"So what do we do?" I asked dumbly,
"We follow the path," He gestured to the dirt path at the side of the lake. I nodded and walked down the path, Roan trailing behind kicking pebbles along the way.
We walked past lunch time, Roan picked some berries for us to eat. They were hard and sour, but I was grateful to have something to eat.
Soon we reached a beautiful house with a magnificent garden. We walked into the garden, it seemed deserted.
"Hello?" Roan shouted, "Is anyone here?"
We went deeper into the garden.
We saw a woman and a child, she had very blonde hair and they both were wearing green. "Excuse me?" I called to her, she turned round. She gasped with fright and bundled up the child. I saw that she had strange long pointed ears, was she an elf? But elves don't exist! The woman ran to the stairs of the building and up them. "Hey come back!" Roan called after her,
"Why was she scared of us," I asked curiously,
"Because she's probably never seen a human before," He said, "I can't understand why she'd be scared, we look exactly like elves apart from they're more attractive and have pointy ears,"
"Your ugliness probably scared her off then," I giggled,
"Hey!" Roan said, but he smiled at me. Butterflies built up in my stomach when he turned away, but I scolded myself for being so silly.
The sound of feet hitting stone caused me to tear my eyes away from Roan and look at the house again. A man was coming down the steps, his eyes blazing. "What do you think you're doing, scaring my wife?" He snapped at Roan, he had a strange European accent. "I suppose you humans think it's funny, scaring elves like that," "We didn't mean to scare her, we were just here for directions," Roan said, the elf-man's face softened. "Are your names Roan Flint and Violet Eldertree?" He asked,
"Ermm, yes, how do you know our names?" Roan asked suspiciously,
"A man came by, not long ago. He told me that a woman and a man would come by and ask where the path lead to. He told me to tell you that if you wanted to get Violet home, you have to cross the bridge of the river Veldom and follow to the path to the first fork in the road, go left and enter the gates," He said,
"Did the man tell you his name?" I asked,
"I did not ask, for names are precious things." He said,
"Did he elaborate on how he knew these things? Roan asked.
"He did not. Fair well, humans," and he turned and went towards the house.
"I don't think we should go," Roan said, I stared at him dumbfounded. "What?" I asked, "Why?"
"Because no-one crosses the bridge, those who do, never come back,"
"But he said it was the only way I could get home," I whined, my eyes stung, how could he say these things? "Fine, I'll go by myself,"
"You can't go by yourself," He said. He sighed heavily, "I'll have to go with you,"
"Thank you," I said, "This means so much to me,"
He led me down the path, following the river. He said that we would reach the bridge quicker this way. We reached the bridge,
"Are you sure you want to do this?" He asked me,
"I'm sure," I said. We crossed the bridge.

Oooh, what awaits on the other side of the bridge? Is it a portal into another time perhaps, back to Violet's own time? Looking forward to the next chapter!

Enjoyed your story and screenshots \:\) , but I had missed Part Four it seems, and now I cannot find it on the site \:confused\: .  Did you take it down?  You also don't have a 'story pod' up on your minisite... wish I knew what past Roan had opened up to Violet with (guessing that happened in Part 4?)...  Still enjoying your story though \:D
