It's been four years since I last saw Kareena, the mysterious lady that I met in the woods. After the high school graduation I decided to go home to my parents' house that summer. One afternoon I decided to check the woods if Kareena had come back, it was nearly sunset when I entered the small forest and decided to sit beside the big old tree where I first saw Kareena six years ago.
I closed my eyes and concentrated to feel any presence within the area when I suddenly felt a cloth covered me from behind. I slightly opened my eyes and discovered that the cloth is Kareena's blue hooded cloak, as I closed my eyes again a gentle wind blew around me and a young female voice spoke to my ears saying, "it's been a long time, you have grown, Caleb."
"Kareena? Where have you been all these years? I answered.
"An old friend visited me, and asked for help, I needed to move to her place for years" she said.
"And what kind of help she needed that took you several years to be gone?" I asked.
"There are things humans like you should not bother to know" she answered.
She then appeared in front of me to greet me and sit beside me, it was a reunion I did not expect, we talked and laughed a lot, I told her stories about the past four years, the strange experiences that I encountered and how I discovered about the paranormal world.
"Now do you have an idea what kind of being I am?" she asked.
"Are you a nature spirit? Like a fairy or a nymph?" I asked.
"Yes I am a nature spirit" she answered.
The following day we met again and Kareena once again invited me to her house in the woods, it's still the same, beautiful and simple like before. The little wooden house is still surrounded by tall trees and flowering plants.
"I tried to go back to your house before but I could not find the right path" I told her.
"Going into my house is entering a new world, only I can lead the way" she answered.
While staying at Kareena's house I can sense other presence around the area, far from her flowering garden and outside the trees that surround her house I can hear voices of other beings and their language are foreign to me. I told Kareena about it.
"Don't worry Caleb, my place is a safe zone, and when they enter I would know" she said.
"Why? What's the matter? I asked.
Kareena whispered to my ears and said, "Because some of them might come here and take you, and when they do you'll have no chance of going back to your world."
I felt scared knowing that other enchanted beings are capable of abducting people. I often visited Kareena for the next three years, her little wooden house has become our love nest.
Until one day the owner of the small forest decided to cut down the trees one by one to use the land as part of his farm. Kareena spoke to me saying that she had no other choice but to leave, she is a nature spirit and the forest is her home, now that her home is soon to be gone she decided to move in an old friends place until she finds a new forest where she can build a new home. That was the last time I saw her.
