For Mystery Island and Mira

Kinae looked out the window. She couldn't remember the last time she saw the sky such an ominous green. Would she make it on time? Are they out there? Questions were spinning in her mind, but this time she felt different.

The night was getting darker.

Cheri, a white kacheek, was home alone. Her sister had, as usual, went outside in search for some adventure or whatever. Xynthi was out of the door almost every night, but today she hadn’t been home at all.

"For Mystery Island and Mira" by chosha
Kinae looked out the window. She couldn't remember the last time she saw the sky such an ominous green. Would she make it on time? Are they out there? Questions were spinning in her mind, but this time she felt different. Fear didn't grip her as jarringly as it once had, but then again, fear had become a constant in the days since Jaroo had taken over Mystery Island and created an enchantment surrounding the island barring any Islander from leaving and any outsider from entering. Wearily, Kinae looked over her shoulder at the bag lying on her bed. The black mass had a stitched rip along the side from the last time they tried to make the journey. No matter how much she tried, she still couldn't suppress the memory of what happened on the cliff that day. Her sister, Mira, in front of her, and Jaroo's Secret Guard closing in. "No!," Kinae shouted. She buried her face in her hands. So much could go wrong this time, Kinae thought. "I'm not ready for this.," she said softly. It wouldn't be long now before Trin was knocking on her door, signaling that it was time to leave. Kinae got up slowly and walked over to where the bag lay, closed tightly on her bed. She knew that the amulet was safe inside, it's low hum vibrating throughout her body. The humming had always made Kinae feel uneasy, but ever since Jaroo had taken control of the island, the humming made her feel sick.

A Queen's Ascension - War:Part Five
The Haunted Woods were an unpleasant, unwelcoming place; its name preceded its reputation and upheld it. Very few – beyond the foolish, or the brave – ventured into its depths, even into the Deserted Fairground, which had become somewhat of a tourist attraction in recent years, particularly since the death of Hubrid Nox and the chance to visit his castle had become an option.
