Her parents sent her to the temple high in the mountains to become a priestess.  Although she did not want to go, her parents forced her to because they feared for her safety if she remained in the valley during the war that was currently raging. Now, however, the enemy soldiers have come to the mountains and it is only a matter of time before the temple is attacked. She stands and looks out at the mountains she hates, in the direction of the army she fears, and, for the first time in her life, begins to understand how difficult life can be.Modelled by my sister Julia who is very happy that I painted a picture of her and who, not only gave me permission to post her picture, actively wants me to post it all over the internet so that people can see how cute she is.
