A Lady of the Fae [@monmouthking]
Whenever she was allowed to do one of the patrols, it was always Midsummer, when the most exciting thing that happened was that one of the patrol members occasionally forgot to bring back the right plant for a noble.
Na'Raea, or Sigyn as she preferred to be known (Na'Raea was a formal name only to be used in ceremonies, by her tutors or by her mother when she did something “improper”), was the daughter of the twelfth lord, known as Kingswood by his peers, Na'Lassa by the servants and Darach (or on the rare occasions she was annoyed at him, Dair) by his wife. It was largely because her mother insisted that the human realm was no place for a high born Fae that it had taken Sigyn this long to convince her father to visit at all, so now she was finally allowed to go on her third patrol… and she was combing the forest for feverfew.
That is until a herd of stampeding centaurs - no, she corrected herself, human riders - rushed past chasing a white stag.
White stags were rare enough in the Fae realm of Avalon, and Sigyn knew that sometimes they game to this realm in search of new grasses. So she followed, catching up with ease and opening hidden pathways that the stag alone could follow, occasionally dancing to distract the hunters from their quarry in the hope that they would find a dancing girl a little more interesting than the Stag they were hunting.
