~The Queen has Returned~June 30th, I write to say that I am all right dearest cousin, Alena, and I am in good hands here. It has been a month since I have returned to the sacred land of our ancestors, and two weeks since I have abandoned it. Rodomonte has taken me into his Kingdom, and has allowed me to practice my magic once again. I thank him for that. Though I must wonder, how is my Kingdom doing? With Edvard not allowing any witch to cross the kingdom's borders, I have been shut out and have no knowledge of the current events that are taking place. But with hope, the commoners of IronHaven should not have forgot who their true Queen is, instead of that pompous simpleton that wears my crown upon her head. I must warn you, and your brother, that I hear the winds say that a war is coming, one of great trump and despair, so please cousin stay safe. Do not trust those that belong to the shadows, and watch those who play in the light.Your cousin, Symphony L. It had been two days, three hours, and thirty four minutes, since Symphony Livingston had sent that letter to her cousin, Lady Alena, who lived within the walls of IronHaven. Symphony, being the rightful ruler of IronHaven, had been shut out for reasons unknown to her and those closest to her. At this moment she sets within the garden walls of Hollow Fay, Kingdom of beasts. This Kingdom is where Symphony had taken refuge and found a love within their King Rodomonte, a kind a gentle soul with a thirst for Knowledge, which is something they both had in common. From a early age, Symphony was a prodigy within the royal witch coven, and ascended faster than any before her; soon she was creating new spells and potions that would be used in everyday healing, as well as political assassinations. By the age of fourteen, she had mastered the art of fire magic and was able to teach few in the coven. Still she looks for new ways of magic, and new spells and potions to be created. Looking around the garden for mandrake root, for a potion that would be sent to her cousin for private reasons, she spotted one on the opposite side to where she stood. "There it is." She had spoken aloud to herself, as she walked over and knelt down before the plant. Pulling out the roots, she placed them into her satchel. Standing, she walked to a golden colored bench, took a seat and pulled out her book of shadows. Examining the potions ingredients, all she would need is the snake skin of a king cobra, which would not be hard to find seeing she had a spell to track them. Looking up from her book, she smiled at the feeling that spread through out her back, she was being watched. "There is no use in hiding in the shadows, come out and make yourself known."
