I thought I was going to finish up with my alraun this week. Turns out that I'm not done and he needs to be in his pot for a bit longer. When I pulled him up from the ground, I was absolutely convinced that all of the green was going to wither up and die. A little of that did happen, but the first morning after I put him in his pot he bloomed the most beautiful yellow blossom. It was like he was smiling at finally being 'put together.' It had been a long time coming. Poor guy has had to wait for three years!
He has grown into this huge plant now, greener than ever and blooming like crazy! I can feel him become stronger with every feeding and watering. Yesterday afternoon I was taken to see the Lady of the Forest by Krom while I was in meditation. I had no idea where he was taking me and he kept going deeper into this forest where the canopy finally cut off all light from the sun. Occasionally, when the wind picked up, there would be dapples of light that came down in streams. Everything was shockingly green or intensely brown. There were colors that flashed into view that I have no names for.
When I was done speaking with the Lady of the Forest, Krom opened up a cloak that looked like feathers, but felt like fur and took me back to my familiar meadow. He flashed a wicked grin and was gone; back into his forest.
