Time no longer held any meaning to her. Step by step, she had been climbing the ancient stairs for what seemed like an eternity. With only a small lantern and the subtle rumbling of the mountain around her, she slowly made her way upward through the dark. Few were given the honor of making this journey to the top of the mountain, and no one knew for sure exactly what the mountain wanted to show those that is chose. The mountain's secrets were the mountain's to keep.

Suddenly, she saw a hint of light ahead, and she felt fresh air rush into the passage. With new energy she rushed ahead, eager to see the light of day again. The sight that met her when she finally emerged from the darkness, however, were far more grand than she could have anticipated. Before her lay the whole world, bathed in brilliant sunlight. Dark, heavy rainclouds were slowly rolling away as the sun sparkled in the dew they left behind. In the distance she could see the camps around the mountain, and far, far away she thought she could even see Lenorian cities, infinitely small. In the skies above the heavenly bridges stretched out, racing across the world. It was too much, too beautiful. She had to let it all out, in the only way she know how. So she spread her arms and sang.

And the winds carried her song out into the world.
