Argh...I think I've had enough of making foolish mistakes in front of others, especially here on dA. And the war of fandoms still abounds. By the decree of my parents and elders as a punishment, I will be temporarily cut off from using this site. I'm sorry guys, but you're going to miss me because I have two months left of hectic schoolwork. But don't worry, I'll never forget you, and I'll be coming back when the time is right. (I'm still considering for deactivation, though...)

The slight touch of an orange oak leaf gently awakened me from a short snooze under the grand tree. I opened my eyes and felt the peaceful morning breeze as I strengthened myself. At last, the tranquil season has arrived, and I can't wait for it!

Like a butterfly that had just emerged from the cocoon, I skipped wildly across the meadow where my family lovingly waited for me and welcomed me in their arms. With them safely on my realm, my little world had transformed into a colourful paradise that went beyond description.

Soon enough, I found my sister Ira hiding from a bush. "Gotcha!"

And we ran across each other until we came into a stream not too deep below. "Let's go for a swim," she convinced me.

"Sorry," I shook my head while waving my hand, "but I have phobia of such deep depths, and I'm not ready to get myself wet."

But Ira wasn't wavered by my decline. "Come on, Verochka, it was such great fun. And everyone is joining down there!" She pointed to the rest of the family, all wet from swimming. They had just been resurrected from the clutches of the great enemy, and it's been a long time since I have experienced their presence.

And Ira plunged into the stream, making a good splash. We chuckled at that sight of her hair slightly covered with aquatic vegetation and slimy moss. Despite of my mental objection to swim, I shouted, "Hold on, I'm gonna change my clothes into my swimming gear! Catch you later!" and skipped off into the spot where I last rested.

I felt quite relieved at first, but when boredom began to strike at me, I began to thirst for my digest for poems or my thoughts to be written down. With haste building up, I scampered into a dump full of twigs and hay for the books and journals I left behind. To my surprise, they weren't there, and I wondered which hands they would end up. Perhaps some scoundrel would have invited me to play hide-and-seek with me in exchange for them. And that infuriated me so much that I even punished it just for revenge. My pile of books and journals would be too precious to be stolen by someone only God knows who they were!

I searched every nook and cranny to uncover that mysterious person, only to discover only a ripped scarf stained with blood. My usual bliss had turned into shocked, followed by tears. That great enemy must be on his tricks again, so I caught my eyes on random pools of blood that turned the brick sidewalk into a bright red colour. I turned out to call my family, but my way was blocked by long hordes of prisoners and soldiers firing their weapons here and there, and I had to hide from them.

Soon there were cries and screams everywhere, including an old mother wailing for her dead son. I was bewildered, for how could a peaceful day had become chaotic and gloomy so fast? I came to her aid to console her, only to be interrupted by gunshots, one of them penetrated on my bosom. I looked desperate as I placed my hand on it already streaming with blood.

The mother, with tears on her eyes, chanted a prayer as she placed me next to the body of her dead son. "I pray that the Lord will relieve our sufferings and to rest your soul in eternal repose! May God bless you and us all!" Then she made the sign of the cross on me, and I did the same, though weak that I was. At once, I felt life ebbing away from my very hands, and soon, everything faded into black and I didn't know anymore what happened afterward.


~o~

"Vera, wake up!"

That shrill call cut short of my sweet encounter with sleep. I turned to its source and, on my bedside there stood Madame Varvara Aranetova, a family friend whom I considered as my second 'mother' and guardian.

I sighed with relief. Thankfully that fateful event that befell on me was just a nightmare. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to see my future's light again. Good thing it did mention my long-lost family and the precious childhood moments.

After a brief hug and a short prayer with her, I realized the time. "It's five o' clock, dear," Madame Aranetova responded, "and it's high time to pack our belongings and prepare ourselves for the daring escape. We must hurry before the sun rises! First, we have to sew our jewels into our dresses."

"Afterwards we are going to keep our treasures safely away by burying them!" I added with enthusiasm.

"That's the spirit!" she smiled, her eyes sparkling with pleasure. "But first, change your clothes and prepare yourself." 
My White Nights - Prologue
My White Nights = part of the GMD universe

The previous week's struggles with schoolwork had left me inactive lately. But I finally managed to finish it! It's all thanks to Zoya by Danielle Steel (Recent additions from my library)...

And I mention a new OC, Madame Varvara Aranetova, whose bio I will reveal eventually later on.

Can't wait to write the first chapter!:la:

*edit* I just edited the surname as a parody of Madame Stella Marquez-Araneta, former Colombian beauty queen and current directress of Binibining Pilipinas, the official Philippine pageant that sends its delegates to the Miss Universe pageant. After I heard complaints of elites and fans alike of the controversies concerning Miss Philippines Universe 2014 Mary Jean Lastimosa's wardrobe, the idea is final: the "Aranetova" surname.
