Subject     Following the Flame-Part 1

Her eyes remain closed as she wakes and stretches.  There is no need to spend
minutes recalling the dream, its details always the same but she lay in total
silence spending several trying to interpret its meaning.  In a soft, low voice
a single word is spoken and a candle begins to burn. Opening her lavender eyes
she stares into the candle's flame without focus.

Seeing not the flame, but conjuring the image of the figure of fire that visits
her dreams nightly she speaks aloud, "I only wish I could understand what you
are trying to tell me, but if it is the Firemaster's will for me to understand
then I will."

Each day ends bringing her to a crossroad, standing unsure of the route ahead
she sees a figure of fire between the two paths speaking but no sound escapes
it.  Mellande desperately tries to ask the figure to show her why it called her
here, but her voice is also muted.  Feeling an urgency her hands begin to sweat
as she looks around for a sign, anything that could point her in the right
direction.  Nothing is obvious to her and she pauses with a prayer to Sirrion. 
Suddenly she feels her feet being guided towards the being and walks quickly
towards it.  Reaching the form she wakes in turmoil and wonder.  Always starting
each day feeling the urgency and the question remains with her, what is she to

Snapping out of the thought she again says a lengthy prayer to her god, and
begins to start her day in hopes of an answer.
