I couldn’t stay away from the Dunes.

They were a part of me now.

Ever since the Goddess of the Dunes compelled me to be there, I had no choice.

I was hers.

She was just a tree. That’s what my mind said.

A silly bare tree overlooking the sandy dunes and marshlands and beautiful tall pines and exquisite flowers and … oh, it was no use!

I could not pretend to disdain her.

She was in my heart, my soul, my body, and yes, even my mind when it would listen.

Ever since she called me to that place, I was her slave.

It didn’t seem like such a big thing then, being slave to a tree. After all, wasn’t I slave to everything in life? I was born a certain way, had parents, went to school, got a job … what about this implied choice?
