Taking advantage of the nice, sunny day, Willow sat under a tree preparing for her usual astral projection exercises. She closed her eyes and centered herself. After a while, the young witch felt lighter and opened her eyes, finding her spiritual body under a tree. Resting in the branches of the tree was a large black panther.
Guen blinked when a person materialized under her tree. It was rare that beings from the physical realms visited this realm, and even rarer when they weren’t cats. However the red-haired young lady didn’t seem to be a threat, her aura seemed peaceful, like her master’s normally was. Thinking about the depression her master was in after the apparent death of his friends, the panther growled softly.
Hearing the growl, Willow looked up, directly into the eyes of a large panther. Those eyes held intelligence and a hint of sadness. Willow instinctively knew the panther wouldn’t hurt her and her heart went out for the panther. The pair sat in silence, offering comfort to each other until the panther felt her master’s call.
She watched the panther disappear down the tunnel to Faerûn. “Good bye, Guenhwyvar.” She said, instinctively knowing the panther’s name.
