Well, finally I also finished this one^^
It's a veeeery personal piece, so I'm not going to tell you everything about it.

As always: Storytiiiiimeee :dummy:
29th of May, 927th Year after Yggdrasils Death.
tomorrow is my birthday and I'm looking forward to this day with a great happiness. Then I'm 16,... then I'm old enough for my plans.
Well, yesterday I nabbed little Joey and his friends when they played around with the ancient dark magic. He's such an idiot! He tried to awoke and call one of these elemental spirits, which got a mind and thoughts. His one was an evil fire-spirit. ...but I don't think that he was successfull, because otherwise the village would burn like hell know. Of course I told old Mirane about it, she scolded the young ones.
...From the father of my friend Lina I heard that King Tenas XI destroyed a near village, because the people there rebeled against him. I think they are stupid. Of course we should do something about this awful King, ...but we can't do anything yet. We are not strong enough and not enough people. Joey said that he think it would be a good idea to call some ancient spirits, ...but I think that's not right. He answered me that I'm a coward. I'm told him that I'm just not a hero. And never was destined for that. Then he was silent. He thinks that I could kill a whole army with my powers and am unstoppable... maybe he's right, but I don't want to know it,... I don't want to use this power ...again...
Around midday I went to fields and called FecheÚl'samaru, my good old dragonfriend. He was very upset and growled that a evil force is coming to the village and all should leave immediately! So I ran back to the village, with my faithfull dog Chinee alsways by my side. When I came into the village I screamed to all the people that they should leave now... but nobody moved. They all said that this here is their life and they don't want to give it up just because of the words of a young girl. ...I can't tell them that I have my wisdom from a dragon... too bad!
But I know that Fecheel'samarus words always turn true, so I ran to the house where mum, dad and I are living ...and it was the same thing with them. They don't minded what I said... I even begged them to go! But they irgnored me...
So I decided to leave at the next day.
Now it's getting dark here...and now I'm also feeling it...there is something coming.

30th May, 927th Year after Yggdrasils Death.
It's a horrible birthday!! I can't believe what happened!!
I left the village at midday, after a small party. Then I suddenly felt that we were in REALLY BAD danger. I tried again to tell people they have to go! But...yeah....
So I left alone. After two hours of walking with FecheÚl'samaru and Chinee FecheÚl'samaru told me to not turn around yet,...but I was too curious... I wish that I hadn't turn around...Oh my Goddess! It's so horrible. An evil giant Fire-Spirit has reached to villiage and started to burn and destroy it. I heard the people screaming....and ran, ran, ran...but not to them, to help... I ran away from that, because I knew that I couldn't do anything against them.
So it wasn't King Tenax XI who destroyed my village, like I always thought it would come one day like! ... it was an ancient force.
I cried for five hours, then we reached Blackwood Forest. I turned around again... and saw the spirit be enthroned on the church in the bruning village. Now there is a great silence, even the wood doesn't make a noise. But I felt that the creatures of forest where watching me. I felt it. And sometimes also saw them. I swear, this are no normal animals! They stare like sculptures and don't move for a long time. I'm afraid. Where should I go now? I have no home anymore. I have no parents anymore. And there are only two friends left.

FecheÚl'samaru suddenly started to fly very quickly again, "RUN!" And I did so.
I heard something behind us breaking through the was veeeery scary, because the rest still was silent. There were only this....things chasing us , my heartbeat, my breath, Chinees breath, FecheÚl'samarus growl, and the wind. "What is that behind us, Sami?" - "Soldiers of Tenax XI. I heard their thoughts: they saw the evil spirit and think that you called it!! They think you are an evil witch and want to catch you. They have two strong dark magician with them, so we shouldn't get in their range, when we don't want to be trapped." Bad news. Again. I ran faster.
This day was the one with the clearest embassy... The happy times were really over. The hard life started.

I'm not evil,... but also not good. I don't know where I belong, I'm afraid about my own abilitys,... about myself.
How glad I am to have Sami as a teacher and also as a very good friend by my side. He always tells me when something goes wrong: it's ok, things will turn good now. But today he didn't.

...and so my life as a refugee, traveller, seeker, ... began.

well.. quite long this time xD but I even left out all nearer details xDD

-the girl, called Chisila'Feline, a young kind of witch
-her dog, called Chinee
-her friend, a old dragon, called FecheÚl'samaru nearer information to the charackters this time :P read story and look at the picture to experience more.

->some short words to the drawing:
With the background I wanted to make a string contrast and smybolize the "good" and "evil" and Chisila'Felines place between that. But there's a lot more in the drawing, open your eyes, look and it and search!

->Needed time: over two days.

First, let me apologize for taking this long to comment. Free time is a really scarce thing for me now, and dA is one of the last things I can spend it on :(

I absolutely love both the picture and the story. Both are full of detail, lively and pleasing to look at and read! By the way, I'm not sure if it was an intention or not but it appears as if the fire spirit was looking at Chisila, as if it was him who caused every single bad thing that happened in her life.
