...I tried to wake but a forest clearing wove itself into a living cage about me, the breeze that fanned my cheeks pungent with the scent of pine needles. A figure appeared before me suspended above the ground, emanating pallid lavender light. Human-shaped but scaled like a fish or a lizard, its eyes were a queer cloudy white, its hair insubstantial as mist. ‘Guildmistress, help us.’ Read On..."Thank you Isobelle" doesn't quite cover it, does it? :D Not long to go now!
