Noel wasn't there for the announcement. In fact, she was barely seen that day at all. She spend the morning in her home, packing furiously for a journey to, no one knew where. She bought a couple of things from Daisy, and from the farmer's boy, grabbed her horse from the stable, and double checked her belongings before saddling up.
She paused to reread a letter, then folded it up and stuck into the pockets of her skirt with a book, and bade her mother farewell.
I am not brave, I am only just, for fear knows no man's name better than the one called "fearless", but there is no fear in love.
Hunt evil, Kill beasts, Slay darkness, and SURVIVE!
