Ethereal (Part 19) Healing

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

To Faye
Jared Hallows was gloomy
It had too little light
Yet here she was.

Unable to hear the Holy Guide
She had been brought here.
Yet she was surprised to see Will.

"Why have you been brought here?"
She asked him,
Wondering what he'd done.

"I came here by myself."
Was Will's reply.
"I decided to go on a journey.
And this is what I found."

Before she knew what she was saying
Faye asked an incredible question.

"Did you have a fight
With your fiancee Grissie."

Will looked at her in surprise
And then nodded.

Grissie was a jealous
And terribly spoiled woman.
Faye wondered why Will liked her.
Then again in a way
Her cynicism equally matched his.

The two of them wandered
By the Hallows Lake
And Faye just took a peek.
There she saw them all.
Killian, leading the group.
Kathy, with love on her mind.
Seamus, ever watchful
But Trixie...

Faye had never seen Trixie
In such a terrible state.
She had trouble walking
And was stumbling everywhere.
Her hair was limp
And stuck out all over.
Dark circles stuck out under
Her now dull and frightened eyes.

Trixie was clearly distressed
And to see her in a way
Distressed Faye very much.

The old woman who
Had been in the Hallows
Since she'd been a child
Came up to them
Seeing Faye upset.

"I see my friend Trixie
And she looks a terrible sight.
She is normally so loud
And often cheerful.
What could be wrong?"
Faye mumbled
Feeling nervous in a strange place.

Although the woman
Could not see into the lake
She knew what had happened.

"That is the work of the Holy Guide
It has given her distress
And is making her ill.
What is this Trixie like."

Will spoke up and simply said.
"Loud and often irreverent.
I think she ticked off Killian
And the Holy Guide
One too many times."

The old woman
Sadly shook her head.
"Only obedience will
Get rid of that curse."
Will of course fell over
Clutching his sides with laughter.
"That will never happen."

However Faye knew this too
And she decided she must help
For Trixie was her friend
And had a very strong spirit.

Because she could not
Simply watch her friend whither
She opened her mouth to speak.

"Please help me heal her
Or she will be cursed forever.
Trixie will never blindly submit
And it is not right that she should suffer.
Please help me heal her."

For Faye had in her mind's eye
An image of the Power Haunt.
While it was not in Jared Hallows
Faye still felt its comforting aura
And wanted to pass it to Trixie.

However the people
Who had now gathered
Seeing the distress,
Shook their heads and refused.

"What if we are caught?
What will happen to us?
What will the Holy Guide do?
Our lives will get worse."

Will decided to stand up
For Trixie was his friend too.
He knew that it had taken lots of courage
For Faye to speak out like that.

"The Holy Guide
Will not affect you."
Was what he said.
"That is why you are here
In the first place
As it cannot control you
And so it cannot harm you."

But one man stepped forward
"Although the Holy Guide
Cannot do anything to us,
The servants of the Holy Guide
Can do all they wish with us
As soon as it commands them."

However Will would not be
Out argued by anyone.
His stubbornness he'd brought
With him all the way from Karmia.

"How many servants are there
Compared to the people
Who are trapped here?
Are there not more prisoners
Than silly puppet servants
In Jared Hallows?"

The prisoners nodded.

"Is there not a woman
Who is in terrible distress
Who if helped can counter
The fear generated by the Holy Guide.
For Trixie is not one to bow down,
She is one to stand up.
Should she be helped?"

The prisoners nodded again.

"Do we not want to stop
The Holy Guide's reign of terror
Upon Jared Hallows
And on other places too?"

And the prisoners were
All up in agreement.
They turned to Faye
And asked her what to do.

They gathered around the lake
And focused on feeling happy.
Many thought of home
Their lives before Jared Hallows.
Lives that were once happy and carefree.

Will thought of Grissie
How much he wanted to apologise
For being rude to her
And how happy he would be
As soon as he married her.
He pictured the day
When the wedding would take place
And all of Karmia would celebrate.

Faye thought of the Power Haunt
Reminding herself of how
It had given her strength
On the worst of days
And passed her feelings
On to Trixie
Who needed them most now.

Faye looked in the lake
And saw Trixie change.
She had settled down to sleep
And was now in peace
With the dreams in her head.

"It worked!" She cried
But the servants had seen
And marched down to the lake
Grabbing who they could,
Tying people up.
All around the lake were arrested.

Although they did not
Know how Will got there,
They didn't care
He must be an enemy
So they arrested him as well.

Author's Notes: Long part this time. Expect more Trixie remarks in the future. A submissive Trixie is no fun.
