Aurora sat silent at the head of a crystalline pool, eyes closed, and with one arm resting effortlessly by her side. The other struggling to stay slightly elevated, while her fingertips caressed her neck. Colorful orbs danced around her body, and time itself began to slow.
The sounds of the rushing ocean outside, and immense light radiating from nearby crystals no longer concerned her. She had been training for years to reach such a state of profound concentration. But only when Aurora’s meditation, took place in the scared cave of her people was she able to reach such concentration.

While she had been able to make the initial connection for some time, she had never gotten much further. As a result she experienced only what she called “random images” of places and people that confused her.
Yet, she had been told by her city elder that all would make sense soon enough. However Aurora was never one to wait and it was because of this, that she now sat in her favorite place, contemplating the nature of the web.
The only thing she truly knew, was this was only the beginning of her journey. How symbolic it was, that it would begin in this scared place..
