Come with me, Sagara. [Waterways Introduction] by A0ENA Come with me, Sagara. [Waterways Introduction] by A0ENA
Aoena bounded forward through the snow, Sagara, usually outspoken and dramatic, kept pace timid and a little afraid. The sound of a gentle rush of water was just up ahead of them.

--

The woodland of Aoena's home had been quiet and still throughout the winter months. But one day, a stirring began, and she picked up on it quickly. It was in the way the wind rattled the bare branches of the old oaks, the way the crows croaked, and most importantly, the way the humming of the bees deep within her belly shifted. She became restless and began to roam, parting from her home, it spoke to her. The forest told her to find a counterpart for the journey she was to embark on should not be gone alone. Her path became clearer and clearer, the farther she strayed from the sanctity of her woods.

After weeks of traveling, her tiny paws sunk delicately into the white sands of Sagara's beach. Her large, crimson eyes scanned the driftwood-littered shore, the stillness of everything hung over her, broken only by the quiet lapping of the sea. Sagara rose, the crest of her bleached driftwood arch swaying gently as she stood. She had been waiting dutifully for Aoena's arrival. No time was wasted, Aoena turned and dashed from the beach, Sagara following close behind, pausing before bounding after Aoena only to take one last glance back at her home.

--

Sagara, spotting the water, rushed forward, a new air of confidence in her step as she bent to study and listen to the familiar sounds of water. She felt a small pang of homesickness, knowing her beach was far behind them now. Glancing up, she met the warm gaze of Aoena and her apprehension dissipated. The stream marked the true beginning of their journey to the Frost Stone.
