She walked through the forest. In years past their would have been travelers passing through or creatures. Now? There was nothing but silence, and signs of battles occurring long ago. Her feet were bare, marked with sores and she could not feel the pain with each step. Her gown around her body was torn, dirty and well-worn. She no longer worried about these things. Her mind was always focused on the goal of finding her lost baby and revenge.

Arali'an barely felt any emotions anymore.

Her once vibrant face was one of emptiness. Occasionally she would get flashes of the past and the joys she experienced. The loves she had, the friendships, the pain and the fear of the world changing around her. Now no more. 

A small bird was caught in a spider's web. It fluttered about in a desperate attempt to escape the prison. Arali'an reached down and gently pulled it from the web. She stroked the remaining pieces of web away, allowed the bird to properly flutter it's wings and bounce in her hands. She remembered something.... a memory of birds in the past.. their songs once filled her with happiness, joy, and many species would serve as companions. 

This one would also do the same. 

With ease she snapped it's neck like a twig. The limbs twitched for a moment before the eyes shone green for a moment and so did hers. Forever connecting the pair of them. She brought it close to her lips, kissed it tenderly and looked down at it. 

"Go. You will be my eyes." She whispered, and watched as it flew up into the sky.
