For years the trickle of water had run, reducing by means of the rock, like a blade with the assist of time. The Grotto as it was recognized by all in the village was not a source of ingesting water, but of health. Several arrived here to accumulate it´s foul tasting sour waters, not to drink but to set on their wounds and heal. The grotto permeated with a peculiar odor which derived from the h2o, not foul but nearly sweet that cling in the air and clothed on to you for times.
Elyse experienced come listed here for a long time to work with the unwell that collected in hope all around the grotto. Even the outsiders arrived, with their strange methods and seems to be, seeking solace for their maladies and she would have a tendency to all similarly, after all they ended up all kids of the earth.
As hard as she tried out she was not capable to shake off the reality that just lately issues experienced altered, there ended up refined differences. At any time because the Valan tree by the pool experienced begun to get rid of its leaves and experienced begun its cycle by dropping a seed nicely before it´s time. The tree sensed death was upon it and realized that its only recourse was to start off anew. As it slowly and gradually pale back to the earth, its offspring would rise up and take its when proud stance as the sentinel of the Grotto. Elyse realized this was the way of factors, but it saddened her that the tree she experienced developed underneath would no longer be, it reminded her of her mortality and she wished it have been not so. She also understood that its passing experienced appear effectively before its time and that these were signs, poor omens, dark occasions that were ready to swoop down upon them.
As the Grotto´s waters flowed via the deep roots of the mountain, in its resource considerably, significantly absent, the unthinkable occurred. The waters stopped flowing as they were diverted, by devious and bold minds, that were to put the affluent to a different use, one of war.
