"Oooh~" Fern cheered as she spun through the meadow. "Look at that June day sun! It's so beautiful!" Summer faeries are-obviously-in charge of the seasons summer and spring.
"How?" Shade asked. "It looks like a normal sun." Shade, being a Dark faery, was a natural pessimist and didn't think like the happy Fern.
Dark faeries' and Light faeries' jobs were keeping the balance between dark energy-sadness and hate-and light energy-happiness and love. Shade, and other Dark faeries, didn't understand feelings very well like most faeries, so they fight a lot as a result.
Honey isn't the same way though. Light faeries usually didn't understand feelings and emotions any better. They knew what the emotions were and whether they're good or bad, that's about it. But Honey doesn't question humans or other fey's love for things like Shade.
"What do you mean it looks the same?" Fern argued. "It's brighter and happier and yellower!"
"Yellower isn't a word," Shade replied.
"Yes it is, actually," Honey spoke up.
Shade and Fern stopped and looked at her confused. "Seriously?" they said together.
The four faeries laughed, forgetting the argument. They continued their day, as always, laughing and enjoying themselves. They could spend hours talking and watching the fluffy clouds change shape. But that day they didn't get to.
"Your highness! Your highness!" a man's voice echoed out of the forest.
"Oh no!" Sparrow muttered before hopping up and flying so fast she was a blur.
The other three faeries sat up, watching the direction Sparrow flew in. They didn't recognize the servants voice either. Thankfully Sparrow was right back but with another Winter faery right behind her.
"What's going on?" Fern and Honey asked in unison.
"An unknown faery has been attacking the lands, including Tenebrae," she answered, mentioning her kingdom. Sparrow's raven wings spread out as she added, "You guys better return home quickly." Then she was gone with the servant trying to keep up with her.
The three faeries left looked at each other for a moment before bolting in the directions of their homes. The Winter land, Tenebrae, was melting. The Light land, Evia, was dulling. The Summer land, Olbany, was withering. The Dark land, Ulrira, was crumpling. It was all happening so fast, but the four friends were quick to notice that the overt forest was untouched.
Honey and Shade, thinking more logically because of their lack of emotion, were the first to act. They started flying towards the overt forest about the same time. Fern on the other hand was rushing to help faeries and didn't notice the forest for a long time. Sparrow, on the other hand, noticed but she couldn't leave her kingdom to check it facing
When Fern finally made it to the forest, Shade and Honey were waiting. They were facing the direction the wind was going towards, but it looked like they were watching something.
"Who's ever behind this is in that direction," Shade explained, pointing deeper into the forest.
"How can you tell?" Fern asked them.
"The amount of anger coming from that direction," Honey explained.
"Then we better hurry to stop them," Sparrow's voice came from behind all of them.
The three friends turned towards their friend. They all smiled, nodding. "Let's go."
Flying as fast as their wings would let them. The closer they got to the middle of the forest, the harder the wind got. That didn't slow them down one bit though.
"This wind is really cold, don't tell me this faery is a Winter fey?" Fern questioned as the wind grew stronger.
"I don't think a Winter would be able to do this," Shade answered.
The four friends finally reached their enemy right then. Before them stood a young girl, a teenager at least.
"She's a Dark fey," Shade said instantly.
"She's also a Light fey," Honey added.
"A mix?" Sparrow questioned. Shade and Honey nodded. "How can that be possible? She would be dead or in the human world, wouldn't she?"
In the faery world it was against the law for different types of faeries to have a close relationship, friends was even pushing it if they were opposite genders. They were all dumbfounded by the fact that a mixed fey was before them.
"That must of been the reason she's trying to destroy us then," Honey suddenly said.
"What do you mean?" Shade asked.
"She must be here because of the way she's been treated, being a halfling." The three others understood what she was talking about then. If she has been living in the faery world her whole life, they couldn't imagine the abuse she must have received.
"So what? She's destroying our home now," Shade suddenly said. It was probably the most real emotion they've ever heard from him.
"We can't just shoot her down," Honey argued though.
Shade didn't bother listening anymore, instead he just acted. Throwing a ball of dark energy at the small girl, knocking her down.
