Twilled Forest-Elven Homestead 200 years ago... Lunita ran through the forest, she had to escape. She had to find a way out of her homeland. Tears streamed down her face while she heard her people telling her to stop running. She would not stop, she would leave her homeland forever! How could her father expect her to be married when she was not ready? She would never be ready now. She kept her pace, slamming through the branches as leaves fell. Her eyes became a bright emerald green, glowing bright as she summoned a portal. She had no idea where it led to but it would sure be better than under the iron fist rule of her father. New York City Present day.. Lunita was wiping off the bar in the local grill she worked at. She wiped off the glasses, waiting for the doors to open. She was getting quite skilled at mixing drinks, an accomplishment that she felt quite proud of, especially since she did not use any of her magic skills to become so good at it. In fact, she had not used magic for close to seventy five years. The longer she went without using her magic, the more she believed that her family would not be able to find her. That is, until one of her family members entered. Lunita kept her head down. She checked to make double sure that her ears were hiding behind her hair. She knelt to the floor, pretending to be picking up something. When she knew the member of her former household was not looking, she ran through the rear entrance. She tossed her apron and ran toward her apartment complex. When she arrived, two more of her relatives were entering. They had found her. How? It has been two hundred years! She ran her hands through her hair in frustration before hailing a cab. She asked to be brought to a doughnut shop several blocks over. After paying the cabbie, she ran a couple of more blocks until she came to a bar she never saw before. She went inside, ordered a drink then sat at a booth. She sipped on her beer as she began to draw the artifact that she would need to be rid of her family forever. Now, all she needed was for someone to help her to retrieve this pendant. It was spoken of at a reception party in her homeland. It was said that this artifact would grant a person one wish after that person touched it. Lunita knew that it was not safe to leave the bar, not yet. Who could she call on? No one she would trust came to mind. She glanced around the bar looking for any sign of someone she could get to bring her to safety. As well as she got to know the Humans, males would most likely try to take advantage of the situation. Instead, she took the amulet drawing and pinned it to the wall with the small dagger she kept on her.
