THe Crystal Cave:
She 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, time itself began to slow, and the crystal cave itself acknowledged her.
The sounds of the rushing ocean outside the cave, and the immense light radiating from the nearby crystals no longer concerned her. She had been training for years, to reach such a state of bliss, and it was in the scared cave of her people that she finally accomplished this pivotal goal.
Her mind now in sync with the cosmic web, a truth that didn’t enter the consciousness of her people until after the Great Awakening, allowed her to transverse space and time without taking one step.
However while she was able to make the initial connection, she had never gotten much further. What she did get, was 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. Yet 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 the Crystal Cave of what was now called Tara.
