The Forest Veil

Shara walked through the heavy woods, the damp soil cool beneath her bare feet. Smelling the dead leaves and fallen limbs slowly returning to the earth, giving back energy and nutrients for the new life. Some found it noisome but to Shara is was the sweet perfume of life, ripe with the nurturing of newness and she breathed it in.

The war was not going well and she could not help but wonder how long it would be before either the Pure Human Revolution League or the Technocrats would find this forest and destroy it like the others. With the help of her fairies, Shara was setting up wards and veils to conceal at least this little piece of the beautiful forest from the deadly human encroachment. Her plan was simple, they would hide and outlast the officious frog humpers.
