|It all comes down to the last Fenn, her last words are but of a forgotten time.||
As I look around, it seems death surrounds me. I walk in the gardens, trying to enjoy the last roses I see before I die. It seems only a week ago a was joyful and alive. I am still alive, but sad. The world has gone into war and I was caught between worlds, cursed and thrown back and forth till I could not take it anymore. I used to have colour to my body, but now I still look the same but all white and pale with my now violet eyes. Tossed back and forth like a ball, they did things to me, stabbed, poisoned, harmed. Itís all I can say to describe it. Every day I hide it from my loved ones, trying to cheat death is not easy. I hold this rose in my hand, itís full bloomed and breath taking beautiful, but like myself, it will last only so long. All I knew, is now old and almost gone, the time of trees so large and forests so beautiful. The Lady of the Lake still talks to me, the last of my kin. Humanís hunted us, caught us in webs and took us down.
I just heard that the Lady of the Lake has died, so it all comes done to me. Iíll cry and cry, but what good will it do me? Nothing at all, my dear ones try to cheer me up, they have no idea whatís wrong, I cannot hide it for long, before it comes. Stone walls hold people away from another, RedRoses still grow on the graves and where souls are still pure. It all comes down to the last one, to me, the last Fenn.
Here I lay, it is has come, the time has come. They put carnations in my hair, mourning and crying. I cannot speak words to tell them how much I love them. Those last hours are long and painful. I can faintly hear music calling me, something beyond this world. I lay here in my bed. They leave for a moment and I am gone, not gone yet, but through the window and out into the fields of my childhood. I run to the lake where the Lady once lived. The forest surrounding it takes my breath away. I kneel down and cry as the elves come to take me away. We were here so long! And yet Humans drove us into the next world!
I lay down in a bed of leaves and moss, smiling, my peace shall come. Old friends at my side, waiting for me. I love them all. I am gone now, not even a myth in history. Have all forgot? Yes.
I watch now the last Unicorn lay down and die, I watch dragons go to sleep, I watch humans grow and forget. Thousands of years have past, history has forgot us all, at last. Waiting to welcome you when you die, then you will know.
