We had gone further into the woods. I asked my sister when will we stop for the night?
She stopped at turned around and detto we will stop soon Krystal, but we have to get to the clearing first where it’s safer.
I nodded as she turned around and continued to walk. After an ora we reached the clearing, we stopped to catch our breath and rest our feet from all the walking we have done today. We were about to build a fuoco to keep us warmth through night until it started to rain. My sister detto Quick follow me, I know a friend who will let us stay the night in this weather
as she hopped onto her horse and the two of us quickly followed. We practically were racing against the rain on our cavalli as we made our way through the dense forest until we reached a small cabin. My sister got off her horse and knocked on the door. The door was opened da a lady who could pass as my grandma. I hear Flora ask her something before she walked back over to us. She explained we can stay the night and can put our cavalli in the fienile, granaio for the night also.
Helia and I followed her to the fienile, granaio to put away our cavalli for the night. Once instead my sister introduces us to the grey hair woman Helia and Krystal, this is Ms. Faragonda she has been helping me with my magic, controlling it and survival needs while I’ve lived out here in the woods.
She seemed really motherly because she told us to get out of our wet clothes while she would make hot Cioccolato and something to eat. We all thanked her as we got out of our soaked clothes into dry new ones. When we came out there were plates of food, hot chocolate, blankets and a fuoco going. Flora, Helia and I thanked her for the Cibo and letting us stay the night. Ms. Faragonda detto you are welcome and it’s no problem Flora’s like a granddaughter to me so anything I can do that helps her I will.
Flora looked up and me before getting up to go grab something from her bag. She brought back the box of letters. She told Ms. Faragonda these are letters that scared me into running away from the palace and into the dark woods. Do te think te could help track o find out who wrote them?
Ms. Faragonda told my sister I’ll do my best to help te all with this because Flora te deserve to return home to your family and live the life te have told me te wish to have my dear child.
Flora gave her a hug and detto thank te Ms. Faragonda.
I smiled at the two of them. I cannot believe that my sister might actually be able to come home after four years apart from our family back home. I felt a little homesick, but I realize if I never ran away who knows when I would have seen my sister again.
