I am never gonna make it halfway to the moon


Griffin took the little compass out of his pocket and for a second thought he had stolen it, until he saw the inscription and realised that it was his mom's. It also recalled the memory of his mom, in tears, telling him that he should go. It made his eyes tear up for a moment too, just thinking back to that memory. He knew that, once he was 18, his mother would give him the opportunity to travel around. But he never thought it would be more of an escape of death than a cute little journey. The thought of leaving his mom behind still ate him up from the inside, but he knew that she was safer at her current location than wherever he went too. And besides that, she wouldn't want to leave anyway. Not if there was still a possibility of his dad returning home. But still. Maybe it would take time to get that feeling of guilt off his back.
The compass told him, in his squeaking and slow way, that he was going south-west. It gave Griffin some relieve. Atleast his sleep deprivedness hadn't ruined his trip so far. Not yet. It wouldn't take much time until he went mad, so there was still time. Not a really comforting thought.
Before jumping from a big rock, Griffin checked if his backpack was still - in some way - attached to him, so his meal wouldn't go to some douchebag of a fox tonight.
Soon after his landing, Griffin realised that he wasn't exactly where he wanted to be. Not at all, actually. He sat down, looking down on the border of the highlands and the glade. In an attempt to use magic powers that he didn't have, he closed his eyes and wished that he was at the Iron Wood. Kind of expecting to see the border turn into his wished foresty destination, he got dissapointed to see the same place he saw seconds ago. It seemed like the whole universe was against him. Only an thirsty undying or the douchebag of a fox - the one he thought about some minutes ago - , could make this day any worse.

His job held a lot of responsibilities. Going on patrols was not one of them. And yet that was exactly the situation he found himself in. He longed for the easier tasks. The simplicity of going on a patrol was a very welcome change to his other duties. He felt comfortable in his position but at the same time he hoped he wouldn’t disappoint the faith Lady Sylversword had in him. She had assigned him to this task and he was determined to bring it to a good end. At the same time though, he granted himself this one straightforward mission. One that didn’t push him to constantly think about the next best move. It didn’t require any strategy, just focus.

And that was exactly why he responded the way he did when they suddenly encountered a boy on their way back to the stronghold. The brown-haired young man was sitting there, eyes half closed, looking utterly lost and defeated. Frederick forced his horse to go forward a few steps. He looked down at the other, his expression cautious but friendly. ”I am Ser Frederick Carthas, Knight of the Glade. State your business within our borders”, He inquired. He was now more than used to taking in Highlanders that had been cast astray by the drama, but it wouldn’t make him soft towards them. For all he knew, this man had come down South of their border to cause problems, and that was the last thing they needed right now.


Day by day you learn how to make this destiny your own. In spite of heartaches, in spite of the set-backs. Wrens sing and you remember love. Red sky touches black pines and you understand how it feels to need to keep going forward. There is beauty in the motions and unfoldings of your soul. Flowers in your hair. Stardust in your eyes. Raspberry-tender and mint-leaf-sweet, always with laughter hidden beneath your tongue.

Griffin was at this point just looking for excuses to be sad all day, not liking his life at all. Once again, he looked at the view he had and - if his emotions wouldn't have been affected by his sadness - he would have enjoyed it. It was gorgeous. But Griffin didn't want to enjoy it, so he didn't. His mood was mostly affected by him having to leave his mom behind, but also by the fact that he hadn't spoken to a human being in days and as the talkative boy that Griffin was, it really frustrated him.
But it looked like this was about to be his lucky day after all - a patrol passed him on their way. Griffin first didn't notice the sound of the horse hoofs hitting the ground, until it came só close, that he could hardly nót hear it. A man - Griffin didn't even bother to guess his age - looked down on him. The man looked like he had authority and Griffin felt a little uncomfortable, since the man still hadn't said anything. ”I am Ser Frederick Carthas, Knight of the Glade. State your business within our borders”, Griffin knew that this man had probably gotten some orders to say this, but he still accepted it as an introduction. "Hello, Sir. I am Griffin Loki Sonder from the highlands. Specifically from Caer Scion. Its nice to meet you on this...," For one moment he looked around, searching for something positive to say about this day, until he found a solution. "this cold - but snowy white - morning." Griffin kind of forgot about the rest the knight had asked him and was just generally happy to have found someone to talk to. "Did you ever notice how incredible annoying it is when snow gets into your boots?" Griffin stood up and made a wide gesture to all the snow. "The snow makes your feet really cold, but if you want to warm them up, the snow melts and your feet get all wet." Griffin, getting more and more passionate about the subject, went on. "Who even invented snow? Like, why would you do that?" He really needed someone to talk to. That was clear. The knight had met him on exactly the wrong day. On any other day, Griffin would have probably kept his mouth. But today was not one of those days.

They could not stop all the Highlanders crossing their borders. Most were travelling by road and automatically came by one of their strongholds. But some, like this young man right here, decided to go straight through the wilderness. There were few reasons why one would want to avoid the main roads. The only feasible ones he could think of were that they simply got lost or that they were up to shady business. They didn’t want to be seen going down South. Which made them all the more suspicious. It was his duty to make sure the people of the Glade were safe. A job he took very seriously.

Hence why he decided to question the traveller. At first it seemed like this young man fit into the category of ‘lost’. Then he started rattling all kinds of strange things. Perhaps there was another sort of travellers not taking the main roads. For now he judged this Griffin Loki Sonder person no threat to him or these lands. A soft chuckle sounded while he was speaking. ”Let me recap that for a second. So a Highlander, Caer Scion born and raised, is complaining to me, someone considered to be a Southerner by you and yours, about snow?” He said in an amused tone. The wonders truly hadn’t left the world yet.
