The journey was almost over.
Ivor and Caeyu looked in the distance to Fàitois, the grandest dwelling of the Seelie Fae Queen Titania. Excitement was swelling Ivor’s chest and into his arms. Even from here, he could see at the center of Fàitois was Jera, the largest tree in this world and the next, her twisting trunk rising out to steel branches which each held different bunches of leaves in varying colors and shapes. Nuts and fruits fell daily to feed the folk that worshiped the land. Her roots waved in and out of the ground to form shelter above and curled below to make burrows. Legend had it Jera was born from lightning that struck a lonely spirit and that she burst from fresh dirt to form the seven rivers that fed her.
She wasn’t just awe inspiring for her beauty alone. Jera was also the most powerful natural source in all the Borealis, capable to perform miracles even the Fae had never conceived.
Or so Ivor’s instincts hoped.
