A talk in a forest
It’s an odd feeling waking, I remember going to bed feeling very cold only to wake up because of a sharp prick. To my side a bed of white roses, my arms and legs slightly red because of the thorns; yet I no longer feel cold. Such an odd feeling, the feeling of beat in my chest yet I feel warm. A forest lies in front of me with a peculiar sent. As I march forward the sent gets stronger, a breeze picked up yet it was warm as oppose to refreshing and odd bittersweet taste fills my mouth. My march continues until before me was a figure siting on a chair and next to it an empty chair. I slowly walked closer the mysterious figure becoming clearer; a man with a slender figure wearing an attire reminiscent of and 19th century British dandy, white hair and yellow eyes. As I drew close the sent became stronger, the sent was that of phosphorous. The man pointed to the chair and said “have a seat”, the voice echoed around me and a sharp chill went down my spine; I was beside myself “how could I be afraid” I said to myself. “Come now no need to drag things out” he said a soft spoken voice yet it carried a commanding presence. I sit on the chair, the mysterious figure smiles and says “well what is it you want?” confused I reply “want? Um with regards to what?” the mysterious figure extends an open hand and says “everybody wants something from me, and so for a trade I grant requests that are within reason. So what do you want?” My hand starts to shakes and cold sweet runs down my forehead I reply “I have nothing to ask of, if anything would it be too much to ask where I am? and who are you?” the mysterious figure gives a sharp look and says “one of the odd ones or one of the dense ones, most realize the situation rather quickly and are quick to make a big request” the figure motions his hand to his coat and pulls out a document “thou judging from what I have here seems this line of thinking is to be expected. Come now dear boy any request something to aid you on your next venture?” A sharp chill filled my body, I knew where I was and who this figure was “just take me away, I know what comes if I ask for anything” I said, a thunderous clap comes from the figure “So refreshing to see one that’s smart” I was left confused and before I could comprehend the situation the figure flicks his figure at my forehead and says “Keep that mindset it helps with avoiding pitfalls”. I wake up once more though in room I don’t recognize, but with a warm feeling in my heart.
