Wishing you a mery Christmas and a story to tell the little ones.

Melting Ice
This is a story of a young Elfin Princess who was very lonely. Would she ever meet a young Prince and get married? Why not read on and find out.

Misti's cat and dragonfly nymphsELVES AND ICICLES

          In the land of Gily-keha not many miles away, there lived an Elfin Woodland Princess. Her name was Misti and her home was the Silvan Palace; high in the Silver mountains where she lived with her parents King Silvan and Queen Sereni.The Princess was a happy young elf but also a very lonely one for she didnít have any brothers or sisters to play with.
It wasnít so bad when she was young for she would spend hours playing with all the creatures that lived in and around the palace, but as she had grown older she found herself wishing for a friend;  someone to share her secrets with and just have fun with I guess.What made it worse was this winter had been long and cold,  it felt like it would never end, already the snow had been falling for more weeks than normal.
Misti sighed,
"When would the cold blanket lift and make way for the spring flowers,  in a few months I'll be thirteen, what then?" she reached down and stroked her pet cat Petals
"I should be getting engaged soon, where on earth are Mummy and Daddy going to find me a husband, Petals?"
The cat purred softly under her warm hand and began to wash her face.
"He would have to be a prince; and of course come from a good Elfin family and where was he to come from? 
Misti didn't really know any other elfin families in the mountains. 
She did meet the village elves when the summer was upon them and she had been going to school, but none of these were princes.
"Maybe I shall never marry Petals, you and I will just have each other forever" Misti smiled at the cat and kissed it's little pink nose.   Yes it was beginning to look like she was doomed to live alone forever.
Misti walked over to the bedroom window and sat down on the ledge, she was immediately aware that there was something  different in the woods. Was she imagining it or were there huge icicles hanging from the branches of some of the trees, they were glistening in the pale sunlight that had just appeared from behind the clouds.
She jumped off the ledge without another thought, ran out of the room, down the bannisters and in a flash she was all ready to go out into the snow.
She grabbed her mitts and scarf off the hat stand and was out the front door, through the gates and running down towards the woods.

Misti stood for a while gazing at the huge icicles hanging from the branches, how could she have missed  seeing them before.
"They definitely weren't here yesterday, that's for certain." Misti mumbled. 
Two little  rabbits ran over to where she stood expecting some tit bits of food,
"oh dear I'm so sorry little ones I didn't stop to get you anything to eat, I'll bring something down for you later but right now I must have a closer look at these strange icicles."
IciclesAs Misti got closer she noticed that some of the bigger icicles had started to melt in the warmth of the suns rays, little pools of silvery water were collecting on the frozen ground.
She picked up a fallen branch off the tree and gentle tapped out a tune on the frozen shards, but insteadwhite rabbit of a tinkling noise all that sounded was a hollow clunk like an old can.
She threw the stick down and walked over to what seemed to be the biggest of the icicles, underneath it the pool was becoming rather big and somehow it looked very deep.
She took her mitts off and stooping down so she could get a better look she began to run her fingers through the ice cold water, her fingers felt to touch the ice below but there was  nothing, just what looked like a cold, unending darkness.
 Misti stared at her reflection in the water, but as she looked the image began too change and instead of herself there in the water, looking right back at her was the face of a young Elfin boy.
"This is not possible!" Misti exclaimed, blinking her eyes before looking back into the pool.
"Ok, it is possible, but what on Silvan are you doing in there.?"  
The Elf was maybe a bit older than Misti but he had the same golden hair and blue eyes, he didn't look too unlike Misti.
Without giving it another thought Misti took off her cape and knelt down on the snow besides the pool.
What happened next really did scare her. The elf in the pool opened his mouth and began talk to her.
"Hello my name is Gely I'm so glad you dropped by, I was beginning to
Misti had forgotten to bring some food. get rather lonely in here, not to say fed up!Ē 
Misti didn't say a word , she just knelt there looking at the young elf,  she even turned, then looked over her shoulder to see if he was behind her, but of course he wasnít.
Staring back into the water again Misti half smiled. "Right, ok this may seem like a very daft question, and I do not go around talking to elves locked in pools every day, but what are you doing in there, you must be freezing?
"Iím not quite sure why I'm in here and I usually wear my trunks when I go swimming and what's really strange is no, I am not freezing, not yet anyway.Ē Gely smiled at her again, "one minute I was walking through the woods and the next  it was all dark and I seemed to be paralised. I remember watching the rabbits playing amongst the trees, everything was green and beautiful then I noticed the big birds down by the pond and as I walked over to them, everywhere turned to winter again.
I was so surprised that I didn't see the leader of the birds walking up
Tall peacockbehind me. I felt a sudden pain in my side, turned round and he was stood there staring at me.
Then everywhere went dark." That's all I remember really." Gely guestured and Misti then realised that not only was the reflection of his face in the water but his whole body.  Gely smiled,
"I had hoped by now that I would have reached the Silver Palace, the home of my Aunt Serini, and be out in the gardens I've heard so much about from my mother." 
He shrugged his shoulders.  "It is nice to hear so much about your family but can you not reach the bottom and push yourself up a bit so I can pull you out? Misti's stared into the pool.
It looked so very deep and yet it couldn't be because Misti knew there were no deep holes around here.
Misti wasn't sure what to do or say. Gely made it easier by speaking himself. "I dont seem to be able to actually touch anything and I don't even know how long I've been in here.
By the way my name is Gely, sorry I can't shake your hand." he grinned and Misti lost her frown for a second.  "What day is it today?"
Misti answered."It's Saturday and it's the seventh of March." 
"You what, the seventh of March, you must be joking, it was only the second February when I left home.  I should of been here in five days, goodness surely I haven't been stuck in here for almost a month?
Gely stared past Misti at the icicles that hung all around. "I really donít remember all these or anything else until I saw you looking down at me from up there."
Misti scratched her forhead and sighed. "Well, you are trapped there all right, and it would seem for at least a month, are you sure you didn't meet anyone else?Ē she scratched her forehead again.
ďI mean you must have upset someone or something you don't end up trapped inside an icicle for no reason now do you?
Misti laughed and splashed the water with her hand, as she did so the s
He was goneun went behind a small cloud the image of Gely began to fade.
"Oh my goodness," shouted Misti, "what is happening to you? Oh don't go, please don't go, there is so  much I want to ask you?" She stood up then knelt down again.
"Where have you come from, what do you want with my mother or father and how do we get you out of there, oh please, please donít leave me Gely, I don't know what I'm supposed to do."
But it was to late, the image had vanished and the pool was starting to freeze over again and he was gone.
Misti began to cry, her warm teardrops falling onto the wet ice melted small spots and in one she could just see the corner of Gely's mouth, he was still  smiling.
And then he was gone once more.
Misti stood for a while wondering if he would come back, but the sky had gone dark once more and it was starting to snow again.
She jumped up, grabbing her cape and gloves and began to run back to the palace, she must get help and very soon before Gel vanished forever under the ice.        
Misti started to run back to the palace, here she was running to get help to
rescue a cousin, for he must be her cousin if her mum was his aunt. So how come she didn't know about him?
Why had he been kept a secret.
An aunt and an uncle that she had never heard of before?
She was hurting inside, her heart pounding. Would she be able to get to her mother and father, even more desperately would they be able to get back to Gel in time? Only time would tell.
