My name is Krysta Longbow. I hail from a
small village called Ashidar where I lived with my Grandmother.
My story is long and somewhat adventurous. I was a child of 13
when I was forced to leave my home. The others, people I had
called friend all my life began to fear me. I became aware that I
was not like most my age when I started hearing others thoughts
in my head. At first I denied this to myself. When that became
impossible I turned to my grandmother who knew just what I was
My life was turned upside down when it was discovered, quite by
accident, that I had these powers. Not long after the death of my
mother brought everything to the forefront. A mob soon stood
before my home. The people yelling for me to come out. Thankfully
I was down at the lake with my best friend Elsbeth. As we walked
back, the cries were deafening. Fearing for my mother and
grandmother I raced homeward.
~ Shivers slightly at the painful memories ~
To make a long story sort, I fled my home never to return.
Before long I found myself in many new and wondrous lands. I was
also lucky enough to meet some very interesting people.
The first person I met was a very nice lady by the name Tianara
Walker. She ran a tavern called ‘The Lost Souls’ in
the Kingdom of Ayenee. The tavern a gift to her from her best
friend Mystic Rose. It didn’t take us long to become fast
friends. She had a way of making you feel welcome even if you
didn’t want too. Tia had a drink she named
‘Jetfuel’. No one really knew what was in it, save
Tia. One thing I can tell you, one sip of it would knock you on
your backside and keep you there.
As the months wore on, she and I became close. This was optimized
when her brother, Brandon Stormborn arrived. At first we
didn’t really seem to like each other. Fortunately Tia
realized that we did, maybe a little too much. Before too long we
were joking and laughing, playing tricks on each other. Then the
inevitable happened, we fell in love. I had never been that happy
since I was a child at home with my grandmother. Brandon made me
feel so special.
