As Sarah sat next to her dead mothers tomb, she rocked her body back and forth thinking about the days ahead and how she would survive. Her mom had died about a week ago, but everyday Sarah would come out here just to talk with her about how sad her life was.
Today was a different day for Sarah though. A day that she would never forget as long as she lives. On this day, as she walked away from her mothers tomb, a cold chill ran up her spine. She jerked her weak body to the right and saw a flash of light coming towards her. She started running away from the light and her body suddenly stopped as the light touched her.
All of a sudden her body fell limp and the light carried her body through this world and into a deep cavern filled with sparkling Ice and snow. As Sarah woke up from a daze she realized that she was lying down on ground that was frozen solid. She jerked her head around and noticed that there were no doors, or windows. She slowly stood up and started to walk around.
As she turned a corner at the edge of the ice cavern she saw a person, at least that is what she saw it as, standing in the air staring at her. It almost seemed like this being was staring through her.
Then the being came down from the air, and as the head rose Sarah saw a young girls face. Around 16 or 17. This was no ordinary girl though. Her hair was pure white, along with her whole body, eyes, lips, and clothes.
The girl slowly started walking towards Sarah. As she came up to her Sarah noticed that her face showed a brightness that she had not seen before. Then the girl suddenly ran up to her and hugged her deeply. Sarah was stunned at first, but hugged her back as well.
Sarah noticed that the girl was not cold at all, and the ice cavern was not cold either. This put Sarah in an awe. What magic is being displayed here? How did she come here?
Then she remembered about the bright light she had seen just after she left her mothers grave. It must have taken her here. Suddenly the girl let go of her and ran off towards the wall, then she seemed to disappear through it.
As she came back through she held a box in her hand. She came up to Sarah and handed her the box. It was a rose shaped box made of diamonds. Sarah slowly opened it up and as she did the same bright light that brought her here ran out and encircled the room.
Then it stopped at the ceiling and the girl jumped up and grabbed the light and brought it back down to where Sarah was. The girl then took the box from Sarah and put the light back through it. As the light faded, some words appeared at the top of the box:
"Eh un yet ierit miey
aldir heir erwer hunryer
The girl then spoke for the first time.
"Hello, my name is Rose. I am the guardian of the ice cavern of Unlort. I have sent you here because of your grieving. The light that brought you here was from this box. The words on the top will allow you passage in and out of my cavern. I am here to help you with any needs that you may desire. I am here to help you guide you on your path through life. I know that you have lost your mother Sarah, but life can go on. You must believe it. Your mother's death was not your fault."
"How did you know?"
"I know many things about you Sarah. I know for a fact that your mothers death was not your fault in any way, shape or form. Your mother had a guide through her life as well, she had my mother Crystal. I hope that I can help you, but for now I must go. I will be here whenever you need me. Please say those words in your rose box whenever you need to get away from your world. If I see you need to get away without you saying anything about it, I will bring you here myself. I am here to help you, dont forget.......don't forget....don't forget..."
Rose's voice faded into darkness. Sarah popped her body up and saw that she was lying by her mothers tomb. Was all this just a dream? She looked around for any sign that this could have been real. As she got up, her hand touched something. She glanced down at it, and noticed that it was a small rose shaped box made of diamonds. In her "reality" (dream) she had received it from Rose her guardian, but she remembered that before her mother died, she had given Sarah her rose box that her mother had passed down to her. A sign of love and proving that no matter what happens she was always loved.
As Sarah walked home she slowly opened the box and saw the same words enscribed on the top as in her dream. Sarah stopped suddenly and had to do a reality check. Was her dream real? Did it ever happen? Maybe it was real, or fantasy. In Sarah's world, anything could happen that was not real to anyone else.
