Golden light shown down onto a silent forest, the trees grayed and bare by the years of silence. Small strands of different colored light danced through the air. The cracking of a twig echoed out as a young woman with long crimson hair and a purple dress appeared. A red tinted lantern held out, her face, elegant and young, with hazel blue eyes peering around. Cautiously the girl stepped forward again. In front of her were stone steps that seemed as if to belong to the front of a mansion.
The small lights danced around the girl, her eyes watching, face filled with curiosity and caution. Reaching the stairs, stepping silently onto them, the lights began to dance even more, you could almost hear a song from them. At the top of the stairs was a glass window, the young one looked into it, What is this? Stepping in front of the glass she could see a field at dusk, placing one gentle hand on the window, closing her eyes and letting out a small shriek as it shattered.
Once she opened them, cool wind was blowing through her crimson hair, now standing in the field that appeared through the window. Grain was dancing as more of golden the lights appeared, flowing in the breeze. Smiling and holding a playful hand out, one of the lights swirling into her palm, she giggled as it flew away in the wind. Looking into the distance, another woman had appeared dressed in all white, dark red hair, a white cloth over one of her hands.
The girl moved closer to the woman, who suddenly looked up once she was about ten feet away, smiling the lantern girl asked, Where are we?
Just follow me lost one
The woman replied turning away, Lost one? Who are
But before the girl could finish the woman turned, running through the field, the white cloth wrapped around her hand now fluttering behind.
Wait! The lost one yelled, running in pursuit, using one hand to hold up her long dress. The wind blew, the grain swaying around them and after a few moments, the woman in white faded away.
Slowing down a bit out of breath from the chase, she glanced nervously around, What is going on? Looking to her left, there was a small hill, running towards it leaving the field. Climbing to the top, she was stopped in her tracks, raising the lantern, eyes widening in aw. It was the most amazing thing the girl had ever seen. Across a barren field was an otherworldly city sitting on the water front, a huge white moon rising in the distance behind it, tall metal buildings reaching towards the sky.
Air whipped around her and in a flash blue energy discharged out from the tallest building, the beam sent into the sky, curious blue eyes transfixed on the magnificent sight. Taking one step towards the city, the lost girl suddenly heard, Welcome to your new home
