The moment he but thought about going to visit her, he felt her in the back of his mind. A tingling sensation, very faint but present. Something other people certainly would have not noticed.
He did though. And he knew it for the welcome it was.
The moment he finally entered her halls they both felt themselves falling in love with the other. Instantly.
The others around him - in her - probably noticed that something unusual was going on. They both paid them not a single thought.
He loved her uniqueness, her every stone, her every quirk, her every secret. She loved his soul, his pain, his every cell, his every secret.
She was many things - home, school, fortress, and mother. He was many persons - man, soldier, hyena, and wizard.
He had come to visit her. He would not leave.
The moment he set foot on her ground, he felt her in the back of his mind. A faint, soft, tingling sensation. Something only a handful of other people experienced these days.
He knew it for the embracing welcome it was.
The moment he entered her halls they both recognized the other. Instantly. Intimately.
He knew her to be the mother he always craved to have. She knew him to be a favourite son.
He revelled in her - revelled in her soothing beauty, her subtle care, her guiding. She revelled in him - revelled in his determination, in his excitement, in his love for her.
She was many things - home, ship, fortress, and guide. He was many persons - man, soldier, hyena, and son.
He had come to discover her secrets. She would guide him.
