Crossroads Travel Log

Just beyond everything you've ever known lies the Crossroads, a bustling hub town resting at the center of an unimaginably vast world. Once you enter the world, you can never truly leave, but the Crossroads provides its denizens with security and comfort from the unknown world at its doorstep.

Will you choose a quiet life of security, nestled within the Crossroads? Or do you dare to step just beyond the trees that isolate the wooded city from its surroundings? For it's said that those who cross the treeline rarely return, and those who do return from Beyond are never the same as when they left.

The choice is yours. Security, or adventure?

Writing Prompt

Incomplete
Theme: After All These Years...

And there she was. The girl stood serenely in the pasture, the waving grass brushing gracefully up against her tattered silken gown. Her cape flapped noisily in the breeze, as dark as night against the heavy grey sky. She emanated power, a pulsing energy that thrummed against the ground and the grass, her stark white hair rising and falling with the bursts. Her blue, pupil-less eyes made her appear blind, but only a fool would take her for helpless. She called out a name in a sharp, clear voice.

She looks just as I remember her, thought Jessvix, crouched low in the grass, her feline muscles tensed in... anticipation? Fear? Anxiety? Even she couldn't tell. The millenia have touched neither one of us. She hung her head in sadness. I'm so sorry to have brought this curse upon you. You have suffered more than I, and for far too long. Suddenly she was back in her human form, crouching among the wildflowers. Her hand rose to the amulet that hung loosely around her neck. But today, I will set you free.

As she rose, Reiina turned towards her. Jessvix, she said. It was not a greeting, nor was it a threat, or a warning. Simply a statement of fact. Vix did not respond, standing impossibly still with one hand on each of her blades. Once again, but nevermore, Reiina continued. The blade shall fall and the books will be found, and I shall no longer be constrained by a conscience.

Still Jessvix said nothing. She studied Reiina's face intently, searching for something that she knew she might never see again.

----

Jessvix flashed through the air, her swords at the ready. Reiina came at her, her face contorted in rage and agony as she dived quickly under Vix and came up behind her, releasing a bolt of black energy towards her face. Vix deflected it with one of her blades and it shot off harmlessly into the sky. She turned around, then noticed something: behind the mask of rage was horror and sadness. Miah was still in there.

Leave these people alone, she shouted at Reiina. Remember our village? Remember the Elders, the school? Do you remember me? Reiina clenched her fists in preparation for another spell, but she wavered a moment. A moment was enough: Jessvix slammed into her and they started falling. Sharrasi, Jessvix said through gritted teeth, the wind whistling past her ears. My name is Sharrasi.

Suddenly, all of the rage left Reiina's face, replaced with a struggle. Sharrasi, she said gratefully. She fought off a grimace of effort.

Miah, Jessvix said with relief.

-x-

Man, I can't get this idea out. It just seems forced. Dx Basically Vix meets her best friend (who is possessed by a youth-obsessed witch) before she became immortal and recalls different memories of her before finally banishing the witch from her body. She then watches her friend wither away before her eyes and envies it, as Vix must continue into a future with no forseeable end.
