A lush forest was covered in a thick mist. Moon casting a dim light on the narrow path ahead. Uncanny, indistinct sounds attempted to strike the heroine in the heart. Upon reaching the centre of the forest, a massive leafless tree came into view, an ominous silence hung over it. The young magician firmly approached the tree to examine it closely.
It used to be a sacred place dedicated to benevolent, wise beings that transformed into kindred spirits upon death. The scripture as to how to do it was lost centuries ago. People came here seeking enlightenment, precise guidance, but ever since the tree lost its foliage, the spirits started acting differently. Ever since the moment, those who dared to venture here, never returned home.
She cast a sidelong glance at some decomposed bodies and relatively fresh corpses near the tree. Veronica approached the apparent, dreadful crime scene in order to analyse the situation. Twisted limbs, broken ribs, no signs of perforation. A silver coin seemingly placed in each person's mouth presumably as a ritual, but by whom and for what purpose, it was all shrouded in mystery.
As she pursued her detailed investigation, the heroine carefully approached the tree to gaze upon its magnificence. It was an enormous oak, blackened, casting a long shadow over a remote military cemetery that predated all nearby villages.
Upon touching the trunk, a shrill voice menacingly greeted Veronica. "Thou shall answer one question if thee wishes to prevail." Young water-bender slowly backed away, but muddy plants and roots instantly emerged from earth wrapping her legs, chest and subsequently hands. Unable to move, Veronica nodded giving the tree a sign to initiate the riddle.
"Tall I am young, Short I am old, While with life I glow, Wind is my foe. What am I?" - a sharp voice asked.
After a careful consideration, Veronica hesitantly answered. "A candle"
"I... I am free. A potent witch trapped my soul in here. Thanks to you, I can depart in peace. I thank thee. The tree is dead and will never regain its vitality. I came here looking for power as you, but all I found was a fiendishly powerful witch that toyed with me and trapped me here. Flee now! Flee!" the spirit vanished into thin air serene and free.
Veronica composed herself and cleared her mind, but she had no intention to leave the forest. Being a water-bender she could have crunch plants, roots and the tree itself while she was immobilised, but had she done that, she would have destroyed the poor spirit as well.
It was high time to meet the nefarious witch.
