SH: Immutable Steps

Well, time to rep for the first round of players- my entry for the Immutable Steps mini-event for :iconsybal-heim: !

The first few steps into the Aionios Woods were long.

Tisiphone thought of her daughter, Lita, and the promise she made to be home- her daughter was the only reason she ever wanted to be home- but the woods were too beautiful. There was light coming down from between branches, there were flowers in bloom, and the damp grass lead her on a winding path to what she thought could be just a moment of peace. Maybe an hour, or two, that she could have away from a miserable life. 

From there, it was history. She found the fringes of the forest and met Theo. Then there was introductions to Minister Solomon, and she found herself on the Minister's Estate of Ambrotos before even processing the facts: one, that nothing has ever been as beautiful as those first few steps into the Traveler's Woods, and she would stand by that statement as long as she lived.

But also, nothing has ever been as devastating as the moment she realized that walk cost her two hundred years.
