It was a lonely summer.
I spent time sitting in the ghost town of a college campus, working two jobs and waiting for my friends to return from summer vacation.
Evenings I sat at my desk, avoiding the beach pictures on Facebook and writing.
At first, the story was woeful and sad, yet through my emotional turbulence, it began to birth forth into an origin story about Myran.
In Eliesmore and the Green Stone she is characterized by her love of stories, especially of heroes of old. She also comes off as a bit overprotective. Why? Her story takes you through her mindset and helps you understand why she is the way she is.
Inspired by the book, Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier, I tried to create a lovely piece of prose.
This is a story I’ve held close to my heart and cried at the end, simply because it was beautiful and no other outcome could be expected.
I hope you’ll enjoy the tale and come to believe in that wild thing called hope.
Before the legend of the Jeweled Sword…
Before the power of the Green Stone was released…
Before the war between the mortals and immortals…
There was Myran. This is her tale.
Darkness has fallen in the South World, a land ruled by forces of evil and dark powers. Those who would resist live in hiding, hoping for the prophecy concerning the One to come true.
Born into a shadowed world Myran experiences her first loss when her parents are murdered before her eyes.
Adopted by the Green People she makes it her goal to hide from the woes of the world. As she grows older, she discovers her actions will birth the most significant change in all of the Four Worlds.
