As he finished, Lari saw a hooded figure wtaching them from the bushes. He instantly was alerted, but eased down when the familiar figure of Vana crept out of them. For once, his face lit up, for he had grew to care for this slender elf, who had approached him months ago with a sweet smile and a warm heart.
And he saw Telta running towards her and the friendly affection between the two. And for quite a while the two laughed and talked and laughed again. He decided not to interfere since, as he guessed, Telta was known to Vana long before he had even met her. So he let them be and went back to caressing Telta's beautiful steed, Shadowdancer. The creature was lovely, with a silky smooth skin and dark beautiful eyes.
Then suddenly Vana and Telta came near him. And Vana said "Oh forgive our rudeness for not acknowledging you as well. I take it you are a friend or apprentice bard? I am Vana, Warrior Bard of Eryn Lasgalen! Your words have touched my heart! Have you been to the woods of Eryn Lasgalen or are those words of another? They are beautiful and very accurate as if you have been there yourself. Thank you for the visions of my home!"
Lari's face fell a little. So, she doesn't remember me afterall.
But he soon shrugged the disappointment off. He couldn't blame her for not remembering an apprentice Bard who she had only met at his admittance (though jolly were her memories for him non the less).
He bowed before her and replied graciously. "I am a little astonished for your memory failing to recognise me, My respected Lady. For we have met before, even though for a brief period. Months ago, when I had just been an apprentice. Warm are the shades of that day we met embedded in my memory. Sidhlarion Valenar, to you I bow. Among us Bards you have been a legend. Aye, I have been to Eryn Lasgalen that you speak of, and I was born there, raised there. Fairer than the fairest of woods that lie on Ea. Though many of the souls that dwell nigh it are not as fair now as they were then, when I left." He was about to speak more but was interrupted when Haefa started calling loudly, hungry for some attention from her beloved soul-mate. Lari took leave of the two, and he was glad since he was ever uncomfortable to talk about Eryn Lasgalen "Greenwood" or his past since that fateful day ...
