Day we met
Cetra, known to be the guardians of all life, no one has seen them and some thought of them as myth. But, deep in the forest, within its heart, beautiful maidens gather around a bundle of white. Chants were sung and lights from the Lifestream envelopes around the bundle.
"Eyes that shine as flames dancing…" The eldest of all chanted while others followed "Hair of pure Dark Hazel as the earth…Smile as bright as the sun…bound together to be the tamer of the beast…awaken! My child!"
Inside the bundle of white sheets, a little baby girl wakes up from her sleep. She blinked twice with her red bright orbs. The eldest smiled.
"Perfect…" She smiled. The other maidens bowed down as the little baby gazes at them.
Her little orbs locked into a maiden with the same features as her. She smiled.
"Ma….ma" she stretched out her arms. The maiden felt the urge to come near, but the others made sure she couldn't get a step nearer.
The eldest stood in front the maiden, known as Teresa, the bearer and mother of the little baby.
"Please, I just want to caress her one last time…Please Lucrecia" she pleaded, watching her daughter awaken after the ritual gazing at her in confusion.
"We've talked about this…" Lucrecia said, no crack of sympathy in her words "Getting you closer to the child would only cause more of a connection"
"She is my flesh and blood, our ties together are deeper and inseparable" Teresa said, words growing harsh, causing the angel in bundles to shiver. Lucrecia kept her posture.
"The more reason she has to find you never existed and that the only reason she lives is to be the salvation of this world" Lucrecia turned her back on Teresa and had ordered the others to take her away.
"I should have never had her chosen" Teresa hissed as she was being forcedly taken away "She wasn't born for this reason…this is only your sick motive to easily escape what is ahead! To escape your si-" Teresa was cut by a flick of a finger. Her mouth won't open, as if it was glued together.
"Take her away… She's going against our ways… execute her, she is banished" Lucrecia's eyes were icy.
"But she is your Best friend" One of the maiden's left idle in the scene asked. Lucrecia turned to her, her face bear no pity or regret.
"Such a traitor cannot be considered as a friend…even through the events in the past" she walks away, fist clenched as she heard the final scream of her Friend.
The angel in bundles heard the scream of pain and death, causing her eyes to go wide and tears began to blur her vision.
Then she screamed the only word she could in her age.
"Mama!" Tifa, stood from her little bed, her orbs filled with tears. She rubbed it with her sleeves and went outside her room. The place she lives in was a castle built by trees, walls of roots with flowers blooming since it was spring. Butterflies would usually fly around, but at night time, only fireflies played.
Tifa sniffed and looked around, then there a door opened and she found the leader of all Cetra, in her nightgown, a glowing orb as her light in her hand.
"Tifa?" she placed the orb towards Tifa's face. Tifa nodded and gave a pout.
"What's wrong my child?" Lucrecia knelt in front of her, concern and worry in her eyes.
Tifa wiped her eyes with her sleeves again before answering "I had that bad dream again"
Lucrecia felt a sudden chill "About a woman who looked like you?" Tifa nodded "Is she my Mommy?"
Lucrecia instantly placed her hands on each of her shoulders "Sweetheart, we made you from the earth; from the Lifestream. You were born for a reason and it's…?" she questioned her.
"To be with the silver haired man when I turn eighteen" she answered with accuracy. It's what has been thought of her from the very beginning she could understand.
"Good girl" Lucrecia smiled and had led Tifa back to her room, where she now slept fast asleep, mind imagining what the silver haired man looked like.
Tifa was wandering outside the castle where she'd usually be seen in the library, reading about mortals and animals.
She looked across the forest. She was told they were in the heart of the forest, surrounded by the Lifestream that endlessly flows and guides the world.
Curiosity hit the little girl what it would look like outside the safety of her home. She fled out when no one seem to watch her. Though, she was always kept watch without her knowing.
She fled across the forest and found herself caught in the maze, trees and sounds causing her confusion and fear.
Then she heard something move, coming her way. She picked up a twig she found and hold it tight near her, tears about to flow from her eyes. Suddenly, she squealed, as the movement presented itself to her. A Boy.
"Hey! Don't cry, I won't hurt you" the little boy said, having a hard time how to act in front a crying girl. He was young, not far from Tifa's age. Eyes were warm flowing blue, hair filled with wild spikes that defies gravity.
Tifa didn't know how she calmed down, was it from his calm eyes or from the confusion how his head managed to hold so many spikes?
When he saw Tifa looking calm and her tears stop flowing, he gave an initiative to go near, she backed away.
"I won't hurt you, I promise" he said, moving his hand to hold her cheek. His hand was warm in her skin and she liked it. It was small just like hers but a bit bigger. She looked into his eyes and it was overwhelming.
Then another movement was heard, quickly, Tifa went behind the boy, clutching on his clothe. As it came near, a woman with same features as the little boy came.
"Cloud, there you are" she said with relief, she looked at Tifa and smiled.
"And who might you be?" she asked. Tifa blinked and answered in a soft voice "Tifa…"
"She's lost I think, or she doesn't have a home…" Cloud said, he took a glance at Tifa an back to his mother "I saw her going around the middle of the forest"
"Oh my" Cloud's mother was surprised. Then all of a sudden, Tifa's tummy grumbled. Her cheeks went red with embarrassment, Cloud laughed till his tummy also grumbled. Cloud's mom giggled.
"I made soup and chicken" she smiled as she gestured the two to follow her. Cloud was about to leave. Tifa just looked at him without moving. He looked back and smiled. He took her hand and both followed Cloud's mother. It was the first time, Tifa felt excited, this people she met were nice ones, and she could feel it.
They ended up in front of a cottage. Lights were on inside, beside the house, just farther back was a barn. Tifa asked what was inside.
"My Pet dog and horse" he smiled "I'll show them to you when its day light"
They went inside and the sweet smell of food made Tifa's mouth about to drool. They settled o the table and began to eat. Cloud kept talking, telling Tifa about his great pet and his fast stallion while his mother giggled at his exaggeration in his story. Watching them, Tifa's eyes were sparkling. She never had a mother; she was told she was made from the earth. She watched with fascination how Cloud was so happy with mom, she felt envious. She wanted one too, and in the depths of her thoughts, she wondered if she could stay there and be part of their little family.
After dinner, the two went to take a bath. Both shared in the bath tub, splashing and having fun. As soon as Cloud's mother was finished cleaning up downstairs, she assisted them, washing Tifa's hair.
"What beautiful hair you have" she said, Tifa blushed.
"Thank you, Madam" she said. Cloud's mother was surprised and laughed.
"Call me mom" she smiled at Tifa.
"Of course, dear" Tifa felt so happy that very moment, that her eyes were getting watery. Cloud pouted.
"Mom! Don't make her cry!" he said, his hands on his hips. His mother smiled at him and apologized. Then she whispered something to Tifa.
"Seems like my son is quite fond of you" she smiled, glancing at her son who was blushing at the thought of why his mother had a smirk and Tifa blushing a shade of scarlet.
The two were then asked to head to bed after their bath. Tifa wore a T-shirt Cloud lend her. He didn't like to wear it much since the design was a bunny, not much of a type of a guy.
There were only two bedrooms, the one for Cloud's mom and his. So he insisted he and Tifa share.
On the bed, they faced each other while they lay, blanket already over them.
"Tifa" he said.
"Are you staying here?" he asked, eyes were kind of pleading.
"I….don't know…." Tifa said, though she really wanted too.
"Oh..." He sighed and after a couple of minutes, he dozed off, sleeping peacefully. Tifa watched him the whole time.
When she was about to doze off herself, she hear someone from the window call her name.
'Tifa…' the voice was familiar, it was the eldest. She quickly got up and went to the window, where she was the eldest floating, smiling at her. Tifa knew she was going to be found sooner or later, but she didn't want to go yet and she didn't want to get a lecture from the eldest.
"You went off without permission" The eldest said.
"You made contact with mortals"
"They are nice people….one of the nice ones" she said defensively. Tifa didn't know she could answer like that to Lucrecia. The eldest was quite surprised but her expression went soft.
"You wish to stay?" Tifa instantly nodded. Lucrecia smiled.
"Then you may stay" Tifa's eyes lit up, Lucrecia continued "But…"
"You have to return and fulfill your duty, when you're eighteen…"
"Yes" Tifa answered quickly. The eldest nodded "Then I shall pick you up then…" then she left, disappearing like a ghost.
Tifa had a smile on her face as she raced back to the bed and begin bouncing. When Cloud woke up, she began to ask why Tifa was so happy and jumping in the middle of the night.
"I'm staying" she smiled. Cloud's orbs brightened and he also begin jumping. They jumped and laugh till they got tired and had fallen fast asleep.
Back with the eldest, one of her trustees Elena questioned her decision.
"Why? We followed your order not to follow her when she went off, but why let her stay there?" Elena said, her tone was getting higher, but the eldest paid no mind to her volume.
"Relax, Elena…she just needs to be far away a bit"
"Why? Why does she have to?"
"Because…" Lucrecia smiled at her "If she mingles much in here, she might find out about Teresa"
"But, you declared her existence as gone" her tone was now normal.
"Yes, but, the little girl may have urge to mingle and one might tattle about her existence…its better if she knew little of herself" she turned and looked at her hourglass, sand flowing as time.
"Are you sure this is what's best?" Elena asked. Lucrecia turned to her with disbelief "You question me? I'll have you know I'm the eldest, wisest of all" she held her head up high "I know what's best. Now leave"
Without another word, Elena left, anger still surging in her veins. She worried that something might happen, something that will mess up everything. For good or for worst, she doesn't know.
I'm sorry; instead of updating I keep making new stories that just gets me piled up…I'm really sorry! Well, Please review, what you think about this? Pretty good?
