Hey!!! Its DWK here. Long time no see eh? I know its been awhile since I've written ANYthing but i got a new idea up for a story that needed to be written. It is set 3 years after Elphaba has been 'melted'. Glinda is still Glinda the Good and has a child, who's other parent the child doesn't know yet. All the child knows is that her other parent is dead. Though i do give hints in this chapter but they are kind of obvious hints. I've kind of based this story off of 'wishing upon on start' song from Pinocchio. Glinda wishes on a star...hoping to bring back Elphaba, her one true love. Will her wish come true and Elphaba will come back or will her wish be nothing more then a wish that will become just a faint light of hope, ready to be snuff out. Well....you are going to have to read and find out! Enjoy! :)
Under a starry night a person stands alone on a balcony, their gaze looking up at the stars in the sky. The way the person is looking at them it seems that they are wishing on a star. A wish that is silent and would bring hope to that person who is making the wish. A sad sigh escape their lips as they look down and tap their fingers on the railing of the balcony.
"You can wish all you want Glinda, but she isn't coming back. She's dead." Glinda whispered to herself while swallowing very hard. Tears are wanting to come but the Good Witch will not let that happen. Not now. Not ever again. She has grieved enough. Three years has been too long but the ache in her heart says otherwise.
"Oh Elphie…I miss you so much." Glinda continued to whisper as the tears slowly roll down her cheeks. Sobs quietly escape the pink lips of Glinda the Good as she mourns the death of the Wicked Witch of the West, who was killed three years ago to this day. There are rumors whispering around that Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West were lovers but Glinda has never confirm or denied it. She kept her promise to the Witch to not clear her name with the people of Oz. As hard as it was to do such a thing Glinda knew she had to do it. There was one major reason for this and it wasn't to make the air clear about the Wicked Witch of the West, who went by the name of Elphaba Thropp.
The reason was….
A soft voice came from behind Glinda, making the blonde jump slightly at this. Glinda quickly wiped away her tears before turning around with a soft smile. There standing in the door way of the balcony was a 6 year old girl. Stunning blue eyes were looking on at the blonde and thick, raven colored hair was up in a pony tail to keep the hair out of the young girl's eyes. The corners of Glinda's lips tug slightly as she looked over the young girl as if she was looking over her features for something.
"What is it darling?" Glinda questioned softly as she got closer to the door. The young girl sniffled slightly as she went to Glinda and looked up to her, her hawkish features became more prominent from the shadows of the light that came from the Good Witch's room.
"I couldn't sleep again, Momma. I keep on feeling like somebody is watching me from my room." The raven haired beauty said as she rubbed her eyes sleepily, showing off just how tired the poor, sleep deprived girl was. Glinda's blue eyes soften greatly as she picked up her daughter and started to carry her into her room so she could get some sleep tonight.
"There is nobody in your room, Raven. I promise you. You were probably dreaming." Glinda tried to reassure her daughter as she gently put Raven on her bed and tucked her in to the pink comforter. Raven shook her head greatly at this as she stood up, fire burning in her eyes. The blonde witch swallowed a bit at seeing this look. It so reminded her of Elphaba. That fire to prove that she was right and you were wrong.
"Momma…there was somebody there and they…they…touched me. They touched my cheek." Raven protested while putting a hand on her cheek to show the spot where that "person" touched her. Glinda blinked her eyes at this and she leaned back slightly, her eyes moving back and forth in thought after this. Raven crawled over to the Good Witch and took her hand into hers. Her blue eyes looked into Glinda's blue eyes.
"They were saying something to me." The raven haired child closed her eyes as she tried to think of the words that she heard. "Th..they said 'how you've grown' and…and…'You are beautiful just like your mother' and…and…'I love you always and I'm always watching out for you' and.."
"Raven that is enough." Glinda interrupted firmly to keep he daughter from rambling on with this nonsense. Raven shrunk slightly at this and let go of the Good Witch's hand after this. Seeing this, Glinda soften up again and scooted up next to her daughter and held her tightly in her arms. Raven sniffled slightly as she looked up to her mom. Glinda kissed her on the forehead while thinking how much Raven is a mixture of her and her other parent. Raven smiled at this and snuggled into Glinda's arms and warmth with a happy sigh. She loved being in her momma's arms. It was so warmth and comforting. She knew that being in her arms would melt away anything around her and she could just focus on her momma's love.
"I love you so much Raven. I'm sorry that I yelled at you. I believe you ok?" Glinda said with a smile to show that she believed Raven. The raven haired beauty smiled even more, her blue eyes sparkled greatly at hearing this. She finally got the Good Witch to believe her and it made her very happy.
"Thank you momma." Raven whispered before leaning up and kissing Glinda on the cheek before getting underneath the covers and snuggling with a smile. The blonde witch chuckled at this while tucking her daughter underneath the covers again. Once she was done she looked down at her daughter with an almost sad smile. She just wished that Raven's other parent was here to watch their daughter grow into a young woman that they would be very proud of one day.
"Momma, tell me a story about daddy." Raven requested as she laid on her back to look up to the Good Witch. Glinda blink back her tears at this and nodded her head with a very small smile.
"Of course darling." Glinda answered as she scooted closer to Raven to tell her another story about her other parent. She would do this to keep their memory alive with their daughter so she know who they were and how much good they did in their life time before they passed away. Raven only made it half way through the story before her eyes finally closed and soft snores started to come from her. Glinda couldn't help but giggle at this because she knew that her significant other would tease her about their daughter inheriting this from the Good Witch. Glinda bent down and kissed her daughter on the forehead again.
"Sweet dreams my beautiful daughter. I love you so very much and so do they." Glinda whispered before standing up and turning down the lights so Raven can sleep peacefully. The blonde witch slowly walked out onto the balcony and resumed her position against the balcony, her eyes back on the stars. She closed her eyes and tears started to roll down her cheeks again. She sorely wished that they were here again so they could be a happy family again. Though Glinda knew that could never happen. The person was dead and never coming back. That's what hurt the most.
Glinda snapped open her eyes at hearing this soft voice and looked around with wide eyes. Her heart was pounding greatly when she could find nobody to put that voice to. Then a gentle breeze caressed Glinda's face. The blonde witch couldn't help but close her eyes at this for it felt like her lover's touch.
"Wish upon a star and it could be granted."
Glinda slowly opened her eyes and they saw the brightest star in the sky. She closed her eyes and wished upon that brightest start to bring back the one person she loved with all hear heart. Who knows…maybe that voice could be right. Her wish could come true.
'I wish the one person I love will come back to life'
Glinda opened her eyes and looked back behind her to see Raven sleeping peacefully. Suddenly feeling tired Glinda walked back inside her room and closed the balcony's doors before locking them. She changed into her night time clothing and got into bed next to her daughter. As the blonde witch let sleep claim her, somewhere in her heart and mind she truly wished that her wish could come true. But time and reality would not let Glinda believe in such fairy tale things anymore. Becoming Glinda the Good shatter all happy endings that Glinda had picture that would happen but it never could happen. Fate has seen to that. As the two people slept on peacefully in their bed, a shadow leapt onto the balcony and slowly walked to the doors. Deep, brown eyes peered through the window and soften at seeing Glinda and Raven sleeping. Then a hand was gently put on the cool grace. In the moonlight it showed off the color of the skin of the person standing there.
It was green.
