Once upon a time, you were lost and you were afraid. You had almost nothing, just what you snatched when you ran. It wasn’t the first time you ran. It’s messier this time than last time. You have more to lose, now. The woods are so dark and deep that you no longer remember what it was like to be at court, to bask in the approval of your betters, everyone who ever had power over you and brought you up and smashed you down until you were face down in the mud, their heels on your throat. This new life of yours is very far from the old one. You are now required to remember what plants are medicinal, how to read cyphers, how to kill your own food and beg money from any relation or ally you ever had, just to keep a roof over your head. How will you survive? How will you find your way back to court? Will you ever be free?
For now, you wait. You survive. You plan. You open every door that ever is shown to you.
