once upon a fairytale part 5

How unsettling! “Would you accept a hot drink?” asked the old lady looking deep into her eyes. “You and I have such alot to talk about, but where are my manners, I am Raniel, too, just like you and I have been awaiting this day for a very long time, my child”

The princess looked at the old woman and was surprised that she too had a mole, or beautyspot on her face, in the shallow dimple between the nostrils and the “cupid’s Bow” of the lips. She looked deep into the old eyes and was taken aback at the similarities she saw there with each time she had looked in a mirror. She shivered despite the warmth from the fire. “Who was this old witch and what did she want?”

The old lady leaned forward and brought her face closer to the princess’. " Don’t you recognise me, child, This day has been prophesied from thirteen years before your birth, by my mother, the Great Lady Raniel. She told me that when I was thirteen and the blood began to flow, I would be blesséd by a magical warp in time and would be able to ask myself a question, and I would be able to answer it and avoid a certain heartache, that would happen when I was sixteen years old- That’s in three years, So now is the time for you Princess Raniel to ask the question. And there’s no need to fear, if your heart leads you here with a good question. And Lady Raniel’s prophesy will be fulfilled and you will avoid a tragedy in your future and me, in my past. Now Raniel, sweet princess, the time has come, ask your question!"
