At once, it started to rain, not water but flowers of such heady scents and bright colours – lavender, hyacinths, lilac, daisies and sunflower petals. They fell to Earth in an iridescent rainbow.
The Golden Hind was a beautiful ship, elegant, detailed and proud. Tarran was already the tour guide.
“It was originally called the Pelican but was renamed by Drake in honour of his patron Sir Christopher Hatton, whose crest was the golden hind. A female red deer.
“The red deer is also a symbol of the Fae. Is that not true George?” Ava asked. Her studies of her father’s book were paying off.
“Everything in nature is Fae in some form,” he said, perhaps a touch sharply.
“Everything in nature is to be respected,” said Lexi, “and has deeper meaning.”
Before her, in a deep pool, was the same beautiful face she had seen at the royal court in Fae – the tall lady who had said she would see Ava again. She was half in the water but the occasional lap of a wave exposed the beauty of her tail. All the blues and greens of the sea shimmered on her scales. Her long blond hair fell below her waist and the front was tied off her exquisite face by a tiara made of pearls and corals.
The Age we are in now is the Age of the Selkie, and the water element prevails, that is why the human world in this Age is also affected, we either have too little water or too much. We know sea levels are rising and there are many storms which bring flooding. In this Age, we have also seen the rise of tsunamis and these are reminders that we need to live and work in harmony with the natural world.
