ElleLunia The wind rustled the deep green leaves as is passed through the branches of the giant oaks. The moons purplish glow cast across the ground, transforming simple shadows into unending voids. Small animals skittered around on the forest floor, taking shelter from the upcoming storm. The air was thick as large droplets of rain plummeted from the charcoal sky, hitting the leaves with such a force that tore them from their branches. Ellelunia could see the entrance to the cave from twenty feet back, knowing the camouflaged entrance by heart. Even if her lantern hadn't been out illuminating the small area in front of the cave mouth, she would have found her way. Her boot heels snapped the fallen twigs as she walked briskly over the ground. The rain soaked through her within seconds, leaving her long black hair plastered to her perfectly shaped face. The long woolen cloak that kept her skin dry sucked in rain water, adding to the weight of the pack held tightly to her body by thick leather straps hugging her shoulders. After reaching the entrance, Ellelunia lifted a thick layer of vines and moss; entering the darkness of her make-shift home. Standing in the silence of the cave, her slender fingers drew around the name of the heavy cloak; pulling it from her pale skin. The white surface of her body seemed to glitter in the ambient light entering the cracks of the dense vines covering the entrance. She wiped some water from her black, tight fitting armor, keeping her eyes locked in on the darkness. Ellelunia took a couple steps towards the deepest part of the cave and clicked her tongue, feeling her long pointed ears twitch with the identification of slight sound within her home. The woman lowered herself to her knee, dead branches cracking under her weight. From deep within the cave a soft rumbling echoed off the walls. She stood slowly, her lithe body shifting positions so she was baring most of her weight on one leg, ready to spring into action if need be. The low rumbling continues and she rolled her eyes; dropping her defensive stance. Ellelunia groaned with impatience and tapped her foot on the moist cave floor. "who's there?" Her voice was stern. She reached her hands out, running her fingers along the dimpled cave walls. The rumbling faded slowly and the clicking of talons on rock replaced it; growing louder. Her eyes had begun to slowly adjust to the darkness, allowing her to see dim shapes. Noticing the glowing eyes of a dangling bat or two. "Of course" She sighed, walking more confidently towards the back and swatting at them to leave. that's what happened when you lived in caves.
