“My happiness shall never return, until I am restored,” One of the two figures, whose appearance was that of a young lady said depressingly. They were obscured by the darkness of night and the shade of the trees.
“Fear not, my mistress.” The latter figure, which looked like an elderly-looking hag calmly replied, “As we planned, I shall find the youth you seek. Only then you shall regain your former self.”
The young woman nodded, “Please, for my sake, head of my confidants, go forth and find that child. Lest my beauty never return since the day I delivered my firstborn.”
And with her compliance, the elderly one went on her way to seek out her objective. Failure was not an option, lest the Mistress never returns to her former self… Especially after the she was rejected by her former consort.
