In fact, she shivered and pulled her dark cloak closer to her body. In the same motion, she hiked up the hem of her white dress, trying to keep from tripping over it for the umpteenth time. She looked up to see the mountainside she had been following was nearly in front of her.Her Name is Kaida Ch. 1 by chris-toe-fur
“At last..,” she breathed. She pulled the hem up further and ran through the rest of the grass until it cleared. She paused at the edge of a half-circle of barren ground.
