So, I’ve heard tell of unicorn sightings – often seen by conjurers in particular. Curious as to these rumors and the truth behind them, I’ve made to visits the Conjury Guild in the past. I didn’t have much luck seeking information in their books or from other students, however.
Today, just as I was about to head out, one of the Conjurers told me there were reports of a wounded creature, and requested my assistance in finding it and helping it however possible. I’m still not the best when it comes to tossing around healing spells, but I agreed to check it out.
When I got there, wouldn’t you know it…
This looked very much like a unicorn to me. Fascinating!
I could also tell on first glance that it was, indeed, the reported wounded creature. I wasn’t quite sure how it would respond to my advance, so I inched forward very carefully… I made no other motion but to attempt to heal its wounds.
This actually must have worked (for once) because it immediately reared up and resumed what I took to be proper unicorn posture. Though… with my lack of unicorn knowledge, ’twas hard to tell.
Our eyes met. She… for some reason I knew this was a mare… gave me a long, soul-searching look. I held my breath, not knowing what to expect. And then, before I could say or do anything, she was off, racing away like the wind.
I could only marvel to myself as I headed back to report the incident to the Conjurer at the Guild.
Indeed, the Conjurer confirmed I had found and healed an elusive unicorn. But not only that… apparently that moment of shared onlooking, ’twas a sign of trust and kinship. How a creature known to be so pure could find kinship in me… ’tis absolutely baffling.
However, I was given a special horn and told to use it once outside of the township. When I did, much to my surprise, my new unicorn friend appeared as if out of nowhere! And she was more than willing to bear me wherever the wind would take us!
