Rain forest Faerie:
She rode deep into the forest to wait.
Wait for what ? She was not certain, but she knew it was her destiny. She was somewhat lonely as it was her first time away from the camp where she had spent her earlier years. Mixed feelings of fear and anticipation kept her frozen on the log where she knew she must stay.
She thought of all the fun times when she was free to pick wildflowers and to adorn her hair with them and sit by the pools with her friends. Just yesterday was one of those days and then as the sun was sitting she was summoned by the Great One and told, "it is time"! He told her the trip out of the deep woods, across the mountains and into the rain forest must be traveled quickly and that she had to reach her destination before dark. The rain forest was not a safe place for faeries, especially young and beautiful ones like her. Then she heard her name being whispered," Andraia" and again, a little louder, "Andraia". And she saw him, a small yellow worm. "How did you know my name" she asked. The Great One sent a Raven and he told me everything concerning you. I saw you were becoming afraid and I did not want you to leave this place. "How long must I wait here and what am I waiting for, do you know"? "Oh yes, I know! OK, EVERYBODY PUT YOUR THINKING CAPS ON AND TELL ME, WHAT IS SHE WAITING FOR?
