Months later, Saelje looked outside. It had just started to snow. "Maybe I'll go for a little walk." She decided.
She went to the forest, strait to her oak tree.
She settled against the tree's warm trunk.
Taranis was there, waiting for her.
He was very happy to see his lovely lady again.
As he gave her a warm kiss, she became young once again.
He took her up into the sky.
Up, up, and out of the forest they flew.
As they flew through the woods, it became springtime.
Butterflies greeted them in the air, as it became summertime.
In the distance, Saelje saw a giant tree. "That's my home" said Taranis.
They drifted gently down into a meadow of flowers, where other faeries played music, and danced in the sun.
Taranis and Saelje joined them in the faerie dance.
Taranis asked Saelje, "Would you stay here with me, and we can dance and fly and love?"
Oh yes!" exclaimed Saelje. "That would be wonderful!"
And so Taranis went to his oak tree in Saelje's world, and magicked her, so she could stay with him forever.
Yes, Saelje was so fast asleep, the snow had settled around her, chilling her body down.
She was still there the next morning, but she was not breathing.
She was living with Taranis in the forever land of dancing, flying and loving.
