Having trouble getting to sleep so I tried a little meditation instead. Allowing my mind to wonder I suddenly meet this very fierce strong masculine being. Not quite human, not quite cat, very much a hunter but sworn to protect. She spoke no words to me, my knowledge was enough.
We traveled together, her shrouded in her cloud, her hood pulled forward. Te further we traveled the more I began to change, until I too was hidden in a hooded cloak. More and more guardians began to emerg, all slowly treading in the same direction, following a flight of stars into the yellow misted light of twilight. We powered ahead, distracting others as we went, but no one interrupted us.
I saw a boy, so beautiful, but without sexuality. He was confident and quick footed and wore his hooded around his shoulders, we only made eye contact for a second before her vanished. Sprinting into the mist, in a different direction to my own.
My guardian left me half way along a path, unknown drops on either side of me, and thin paths to tread. But in an Eden like garden floating in the mist. In her silence I knew she would not be returning. That the journey I was about to make was my choice and the value I would take from it would be to travel it on my own.
