Celeste didn't notice the shadows of her followers, so she simply continued her way without a single worry in the world...
The grass under her feet didn't even move slightly, as if it wasn't permitted to take action against her. It seemed as if she was floating in the air, which just barely described how elegant she moved.
She now was able to see the forest in font of her: Haiba. (Ha-i-ba spoken)
Many legends are bound to this place and yet all got a rather dramatical ending...
None of them is good, it is even said that you will be either slaughtered by "cursed trees", the "defense line" of the forest: meaning they are the trees guarding it's entrance, or by thick miasma belonging to the forest
and even though it sounded like a fairy tale, they really got a "soul" or "soulspirit", even when nobody dared to find that out themselves.
She felt it and she knew it because ever since she was little the forest was her hideout, whenever her father did tell her not to do something, she naturally did it....
So when he warned her not to go to Haiba, she didn't listen and obviously did the opposite, just to rebell against her father.
She didn't have another reason and yet the trees welcomed her gently, took her in their "arms" and calmed her soul down.
People wouldn't come by, which made it the perfect hideout for her to go all out without a single person which told her what she needed to do.
Memories of those days, when she first entered this forest naturaly came into her mind and still there were things she couldn't remember, as if some higher existence sealed it away from her...
"As if right...?", she slowly muttered to herself.
The thought of that made her boody shake slightly, she could never shake off the thought of this, she had tried multiple times but as you can see...
She could't help but think that it really happened.
Well i shouldn't think of stuff like this right now...
When there was barely a distance of 100 metres, from her being able to enter the forest, she heard mechanical sounds....
All of a sudden, a dozen halberds were pointed at her throat and soldiers circled around her robbing her the dlightest chance of getting away, she had a feeling as if they were going to take her live away.
"The pallast's soldier", she said to herself shocked about the unexpected turn of events. Yet she told herself that she needn't lose face in front of them.
So she straightened her back and turned her eyes towards them, as they gazed energetic at the soldiers, letting her cute and soft but in this moment mighty voice sound out when she energetic asked:"What's the meaning of this?! trying to betray your young highness?"
She looked around as her accusation got absorbed by the soldiers, it was the first time she ever used an arrogant manner in front of her countrymen not only that, it was the first time ever she has used arrogance.
Suddenly the soldiers slightly panicked as they understood the weight of her words and started to take down their weapon's due to their inner confusion. They respected their young highness and were forced into a situation were respect and their duty fought with eachother.
Their commander started to command: "Don't let her off we got order from the King to not let her out today, after all it's going to be her birthday soon, so you know what to do right...?!"
"Wait you really got the order?" ,the princess started to panick. "Yes those were the orders of the king, since yesterday already" "ahahahaha, i got tricked by those bastards", she crazily said while laughing.
They all couldn't bear to see their young highness when she seemed to get insane.
They accompanied her back to the pallast were the pallast guards took over the lead. She didn't say anything, because she didn't want to make a big fuss in front of other people, however her eyes were glaring holes into them as if a snake was going to bite them soon yet this snake didn't know that this wasn't the main festival and thus she should have poisened them to dead
