The Family History and Biography of Elowynn Silverwolf continued
An other six mooms pass, and the land seems to still be in ruins. Everything has been cleansed the best they can be with all the magics the fae can summon. But only one thing the best of the priests and priestess can fathom in saving these lands and that is for the Princess ZaIanna to sacrifice her maidenhood to apease the earth goddesses. They fear for the worst, never knowing what had become of her fate. The fae become worried at the missing Prince also and fear now they must start over again, in search of more fertile soils. Not knowing that their kind was cursed until the day ZaIanna swallows her stubborn ways and excepts her hand to be had my Ka-Ruil.
Elsewhere, Ka-Ruil travels the world searching for the maiden he had laid his eyes upon once falling in love with her from that day on. Fighting, many a battle. Substaining many an injury when he comes across a barren wasteland with a single stone spiral in the center of it. He makes his way across the land, only to be hindered by unseen foes. He fights hard, taking more injuries upon old when he finally reaches the base of the tower. Resting for a day before he tries to climb it. Knowing something has to rest way up high. After 9 hours of climbing what seems to be something with no end he comes to rest at the top of the tower and stares at what looks to be in the entrance of a cave. He moans so tired and hungered. He leaves himself in the open to anything that might fly by while he rests. When he hears the most beautiful of voices, so charming and delicate. He believes he hears the voice of the goddesses themselves.
Ka-Ruil follows the song into the cave, finding it winds it way down into the belly of this towering wonder. Down he goes, when he finally comes across the source of the song. ZaIanna stood standing on what looks to be a stage, and a great black dragon, laid there listening. Its head lulled back in forth in tune to the rthym of her voice. She stops singing upon seeing Ka-Ruil. The dragon's head whips about spotting the fairie prince. Its body comes around to be behind it. The dragon not like being disturbed, tail wraps around ZaIanna's waist, holding her back away. When the creature rears its head, taking in a deep breath.
Ka-Ruil not unfamiliar of the ways of dragons, takes his chance, pulling from his back the RoseBlade, Flying quickly anc accurately slashing the creatures throat, preventing it from releasing its great toxins. The prince and dragon battle for almost 4 hours before one lays dead and the other injured severly.
ZaIanna now released from the dragon's tail runs to the wounded Ka-Ruil, bending down to cup him in her hands. She looks down at the small tiny man. Knowing healing, she chants and heals him the best she can.
Many more moons go by, when ZaIanna and Ka-Ruil return to only find the lands abondened and blackened. They look to each other with such love that no one ever thought possible. Finding each others souls to be connected in the travels home. That night before the heavens, they share vows of marriage with one an other. Ka-Ruil using glamor becomes a winged elf to be able to mate with her properly. They lay upon the soils of the river. Ka-Ruil loving her, sets her blood free from the temple of her body. When the magic awakens, and life stems from that spot. The leaves begin to blossom once again, and things once thought dead bloom once more. The two never notice as they couple in their lover's embrace. Only to awaken in the morning to find the lands now so fertile once more. The valley takes on a magical glow.
