A dryad's dream - Fantasy Faire 2016
Spring was moving through the woods. Winter's chill grip loosened gradually, day by day. As a soft breeze blew warmth through bare boughs, sap began to rise, bringing life back into cold dead wood. Thalia watched the change of season creep toward her, eyes for months shielded by a layer of bark and moss blinking free. Tingling shifted to movement as leaf by leaf unfurled, roots drinking deep as frozen ground thawed. Sunlight was no longer a harsh glare, but reached the softening earth through a canopy of shimmering green.
She had listened long to the stories told beneath her branches. In the gently curving glade she had made her home, people had come each spring, each summer, to rest, to eat and share their stories. Travellers, couples and families, each brought their tales. The families were her favourites, they brought books, bound in leather, or with cardboard covers crumpled from years of use. Tales of magical beings, perilous quests and curses broken. It had been years since she had chosen to put down roots, to sleep for a while in the soil.
This spring Thalia felt the joys of spring more strongly, it was the season for the dryad to climb out of the tree, to feel different grass beneath her feet. There were flowers across the glade she longed to smell, the fitful breeze had never blown their scent her way. This year she would visit other glades, other trees, greet the rivers and streams, enjoying her freedom.
