Chapter 1 : They Meet

She sensed it in the thickets of her woods... Her woods... Yes, she thought they were hers. But alas, another ethereal being has taken up residence among what she once thought were her trees. She felt it, the moment the creature was born from its own loneliness. She felt it deep within her comb and honey-filled belly, it was far off, then. She knew she had to find this creature, one of very few strangers in her woods. She was not afraid nor threatened, but the atmosphere vibrated differently after its birth. That was then, months ago.

AOENA descended swiftly now into a mist-filled valley, in the wee hours of the morning. The creature called out to her, she felt it, her swarm felt it. She took on a new energy as her image materialized from the fog to stand before this new being. With lavish, richly saturated leaves and small white blossoms running from its shoulders into the base of its tail, it sat poised before AOENA, curious, while also taking on an air of expectation. Although AOENA's presence filled the small valley she'd taken up, the creature felt no fear, for this confrontation was out of regard for one another alone. The bees surrounding the great white beast buzzed softly, meandering away from it and towards the smaller creature, in search of nectar from its florets.

AOENA sized this peaceful creature up from the pinnacle of its head to the underside of its toes, ready and willing to guide this new being through her woods.
