dreams and wishes

A day trip was just what Ella needed. The city could be overwhelming, especially to a girl that had grown up all her life in the country. She also wanted so much to see what was out there, beyond Haven Hill and the city that she now has to call home. So when she saw the pictures in a brochure of a beautiful beach, she knew she wanted to go and see it for herself. She was slowly beginning to realise that there was a whole world out there, and she wanted to see as much as she could. Of course she was aware of the dangers of straying to far from the portal; she was not sure how far out she could go. But an hour out of the city couldn’t do much harm.

After so many years trapped in a house with no one but her mice and bird friends for company, Ella was beginning to realise she had cabin fever. She was surprised by this fact, she had never thought of it that way before, it was her family home and the good memories of her father far outweighed those of her entrapment by her Stepmother. Once she opened up to this, those at Haven Hill sent her to someone who was in a similar situation, Genévrier Aura. Ella warmed to her right away, she was so bright and had an energy to her that was catching, so when Ella first had the thought to go to this Half-moon Beach on the Coast, she wanted Gen to come with her.

Gen agreed, and Ella was excited! They both hopped on the bus, and Ella didn’t really say much if only because she was looking out the window. Watching the world speed by faster than any carriage ride she had been on, it was both scary and exciting!

Once they got to the beach, Ella took a moment to take in the sight of the sea. Waves crashed onto the shore gently, already she could feel the sand between her toes though she wore flip-flops. The gentle breeze that made the rim of her hat weave as though it was a wave itself. A broad smile graced her face, and her eyes glittered in excitement as she pushed up her heart-shaped sunglasses to take in the view unfiltered. What a new adventure this would be! She set down the picnic basket she had brought, filled with good food and drink and turned to Gen beside her. “Oh my goodness, it’s more beautiful than I could ever had thought!” She sighed happily, “What should we do first?”

There were things about this world that still took her breath away. Hard to imagine that at one point in her life the biggest adventure she could think of having was to see the floating lanterns. While she still dreamed about those golden lights filling the sky, the scope of her dreams had grown. There was now so much more in the world, so much more then she'd ever dreamed or imagined as a possibility. Not just in her own world, but in this one as well. To think of all the things she'd have been missing out on locked away in her tower? It made her heart ache in the confines of her chest. Certainly she'd come face to face with a lot of the same dangers her mother had warned her about, some even worse than the ruffians and thugs of her nightmares. Yet none of that had even come close to outweighing all the good things she'd found too. A world of colors, of books and learning, of friends. One of which had been pointed in her direction by the ever helpful people of Haven Hill.

Ella was like her. Locked away from the world and experiencing it for the first time. In Gen's opinion it added something to have someone next to you that was looking at everything with the same wide-eyed wonderment as you. It helped that the two women were cut from a similar cloth in a lot of ways.

So when Ella suggested the beach Gen didn't even hesitate a moment before jumping at the chance. She could remember hearing stories of the ocean from Mother. Nothing too detailed, just passing glimpses of her trips away from the tower. Enough that a young child would stare out of her window and wonder what it must be like to see nothing but blue instead of green. It was hard enough wondering what grass might feel like between her bare toes...what would sand feel like? How would she feel with the waves lapping against her legs, soaking into her dress?

She'll admit she was almost a little too excited as they set out. A trembling, silent anxiousness that kept her eyes trained on the world they passed. The closer and closer they got to the water, the more that excitement in her chest seemed to grow. Until it felt like too much for such a small person to ever possibly contain.

It was like her first step out of the tower all over again.

Standing beside Ella, Gen felt her eyes widen as she took in the sight of the ocean stretched out before her. It was a struggle to keep herself from sprinting and jumping out across the sand. To keep her feet rooted to the ground even though she wanted to charge right on into that water. "It's so much bigger then I imagined-" Her words felt breathless, caught off guard by just how endless all that shimmering water seemed to be.

Unable to stop herself she skipped forward a little, giggling as her feet sank into the sand. Turning to look at her friend she smiled "I guess find a spot to set up our things? Then we can explore!" She still felt like she was buzzing, one hand moving to brush her hair back behind her ear, before extending it out to point. "How about over there?"

In the end Ella took her sunglasses off and put her hand on the top of her head so she could tilt the hat up a little; the better to take in the glittering waters of the ocean. Even just seeing it made her realise the world was much bigger than the end of the mansion road. “Hmmm,” she hummed in agreement, “isn’t it though? Wonder what’s out there on the other side?” She breathed wondrously, just wide-eyed as she tried to take everything in. Would the world just drop off like a waterfall into nothing, or carry on endlessly? Ella wanted to discover more and more every day.

She could hear her dad’s voice in her head, the stories of far-off lands he’d visit. He was with her still, encouraging her to step out, explore the world for herself. It helped her to take those steps herself, feeling as though her parents walked alongside her. Ella returned the sunglasses over her baby blues, turning to the direction Gens’ arm was extended towards. A sheltered area where sand was unlikely to blow upon their food. “Perfect choice!” Ella cheerfully said, an exited giggle escaping.

Was it any wonder she was excited? The discovery of anything new was exciting, and with a new friend who's excitement was equal and infectious. Ella felt like she was a little girl again, eager to explore every cave and rock pool she comes across. She kicked her shoes off in the direction of their landfall, and with a bubbly laugh, she ran after them. “Race you!” She called out, scooping up the flip-flops as she came upon them. The young woman giggled the whole way, slowed down by the basket as she held onto her hat as it’s brim flew back in the wind of the race.

Gen hadn't even considered the possibility that anything lay out past the water. Just standing here on the beach she couldn't help but feel like that ocean stretched on forever. Now that Ella asked, she was reminded of the stories she'd read and the maps she'd studied since she'd crossed over. Intellectually she knew that somewhere on the other side was more places, more people, more lands to explore and experience. Yet in her heart she couldn't help but feel so very small with her flip-flops sinking into the sand and nothing breaking the horizon except the distant silhouette of a boat or a ship. "Something amazing probably..." She said, and couldn't help the breathless wonder the laced her tone. "Even if there's nothing but more water...It'd still be amazing I'd think."

Whatever it was, it was more than her tower. More than the meager stories her mother let slip about distant cities and ports. Stories meant to scare her more than anything. Even now a part of her could hear Gothel talking about sharks lurking in the depths and violent storms that whipped the seas into a frenzy. None of it matching the image of gentle tranquility that stretched before them now.

She rarely got a chance to truly pull herself from her thoughts before her friends excited shout finally registered. By then Ella was already off, heading down the beach to the spot she'd pointed out. It took a moment for Gen to blink herself back into reality, a split second where she stood there, before life and excitement reanimated her. At which point she practically leapt from her own shoes, bending down to scoop them up as she scrambled after the the other girl.

"No fair! You got a head start!" Laughter and running didn't go that well together, and by the time they reached the spot she was gasping for air, and still giggling. Not even remotely close to catching up considering the weight of her own things making each step sink her deeper into the sand. By the time they reached their destination she was collapsing onto her back in the sand, giggles and gasps for air making her chest heave. "Didn't think running in the sand would be so hard..."

dreams and wishes

The wind felt amazing, it wasn't much, more a breeze than windy, but it cut through heat of the day wonderfully. The run was exhilarating, a short burst of energy filling her up, shaking off the bus ride. She was now wide awake, if out of breath, bent double as she laughed, gasping to catch her breath. The food basket lay abandoned at her feet, her hat had fallen off her blonde head, and her flip-flops were still clutched in her hand on her knee. To Ella, it felt akin to freedom, running free, to go somewhere of her own inclination and not that of her stepmothers. It felt both wonderful and nerve-racking to the formal slave girl, but she wouldn't let it stop her.

It didn't take Gen long to catch up to her despite her head start. Though it was unfair of Ella to run off, she saw it as a great joke. It was a bit of fun, nothing more, nothing less, and the laughter from Gen reassured her that Gen herself was not upset. The light-hearted girl flopped down next to her friend with a giggle of agreement. "Y-yes, it is!" she managed to gasp out, "Hooo!" Ella exclaimed as she forced herself to sit up, arms behind her to prop her up. The feel of the fine, rough sand between her fingers and toes felt lovely as she wiggled them into the beach.

Ella threw her head back with a shake as she felt the warm sun upon her face. She sighed as she wondered what they should do first. Get up and explore the rock pools and beach for pretty shells? Paddle in the sea? Or just lay back and soak up the sun and warmth? There was so much one could do on a beach on a beautiful day like today! It was hard to know where to begin! "What shall we do first Genny?" Ella asked her friend for direction. After all, it was as much Gens adventure as it was hers. They were in it together, much more fun to share than be alone! "Some exploration?
