A Story

If you don't know me, I live in a fantasy world. It is a whole universe, really, so it is quite diverse. But my favorite part is the forest. There are many of them, all with different names and shapes. The one I care to talk of today is the one I've been living in for the past year or so. I've been looking for a change but I've been quite pleasantly lost and have not yet found a map. The woodland creatures keep telling me there is none and I must experience life to find my way around. I would like to think I've taken their advice to heart and done just that but, from time to time, it did bother me that I had still not come across any different terrain.
Until one day, some time ago, there was a call heard throughout the trees. A meek and sad call, it was. It cried for help so pleadingly that I answered softly.
Turns out, a Bear dressed quite handsomely as a Lumberjack was in a daze and required my assistance. He had lost what he thought was his love and wanted to find that connection again. Little did he know, what he knew as love was not as such. At the time, I didn't question it, but feeling sorry for the poor thing, I agreed to put in my worth. I was to teach him and his desired the ways of connection through movement and mind. When the time came to bring the lessons to them, she had dashed off, fearing many things and not wanting to take any risks.
He shrugged and with a drained heart, asked if I would perhaps still pass on my knowledge to him. I agreed, of course, for I believe in this knowledge with my whole heart and know it will benefit anyone who chooses to open to it.
So I come to his cabin to practice with him. We talk for a while and finally decide to get to work when we look at the time and realize hours have passed! After a little training, we part ways.
The next day he sends a squirrel to bring me the words "Either we are to have the best of friendship immediately, or we are to be united by God. in holy matrimony" I laugh, thinking back to how great his sense of humor was in our lengthy conversation. I thought of how able he was to get under my lily white skin with his challenges and honesty. How he exercised his capability to pull from me all emotions ranging between horribly uncomfortable to blissfully happy. He had shown me a whole new gradient of life.
From then on, I go to his abode upon a regular basis to have many an enthralling conversation with him. Despite taking an enormous interest in this warm hearted Bear, I exercise my rebellious side and tell him to find love in other places. Win back the object of his previous desire, find happiness in the Exotic Witch of Blonde and Ink, go and seek what you are looking for. He proposes that he wait for someone special but I push back with my iron will to test his character.
In the meantime, I prance along, biding my time with the company of friends. new and old. Not wanting to settle or land in one place for too long, I leave my trail of sparkles wherever I go, all the while keeping my sights on this strapping Bear. Until eventually my eyes start to become clear and he sees the longing that hides behind them. He becomes devious with his actions and words, mapping out an outcome with every moment. His love for this light hearted fairy becomes overwhelmingly large for his Bear chest, too much to contain, even. I daintily avoid the strength of his charm while ever tempting him to push the envelope more and more. Until eventually, with a soft will, he cools the fire of my past, lays my heart down on a bed of rainbows and promises comfort and adventure.
The Wizard of Education  then beccons him to live yonder for a time. I travel between lands to be able to keep him in my ever changing, quickly growing life. We struggle, we laugh, we play, until it comes to an end and we rejoice.
As we prepare for another change in scenery, he asks once again for our lives to become one and I agree upon the allowance of me having my way. I pick the ever fleeting day from the year of Leap to be united. And so it begins, the curious ways of the Bear and the Fairy, tumbling wildly through the forest. Turns out, the silly old Bear had the map the whole time. He just needed me to be able to understand it. Though we are so different and might not be in agreeance constantly, we are choosing to love. And we are now to travel the lands together, facing dragons and dungeons, mountains and sunrises, until as forever comes to an end. With love from our woodland friends and support from our families of Fairies and Bears, we venture off into the unique words of our combined wonderlands where we shine light and laughter on every creature we come across.

And they lived whimsically ever after.
