PostSubject: Where the Garden Grows -closed-   Sun Jun 29, 2014 1:10 pm

Tuli looked out her window, her magic holding a quill. There was a journal laying on the bed where she was, beautiful cursive writing filling its pages. A lock had been opened with her magic, and it was a spell Celestia had shown her. The writing within the last few pages told of her nightmare, as to why she was up at such a late time at night. A small bedside candle was lit to illuminate the room as well, with a box of tissues next to the candle. Her eyes were drooping slightly, and she was ready to fall asleep again. Finishing up the last few pages of writing, Tuli closed the book and locked it. Placing her quill away, she tucked the journal underneath her pillow and rose out of her bed, draping her cloak around her and heading out to the garden. She kept the candle with her while she walked through the garden, helping any of them that may have wilted within the few nightly hours. The garden always smelled lovely, and the center of the beautiful landscape held benches on where Tuli'd lay and either have tea or eat an apple. But her gaze was usually held solely on the flowers Avan had crafted, using her magic to consistently keep them alright. Feeling that she had done her keeping, the silver magic encasing the flowers disappeared.

She then went over to the group of long benches which were in the center of the garden, laying on one and looking up at the stars. She then started to hum a soft tune, a lullaby which had been sung to her when she was younger, before her family bonds were no more. Her eyes traced the constellations carefully, her head then resting softly on her hooves. Her eyes then skimmed the luscious garden that Avan had worked so hard on to establish, hoping to keep a garden this beautiful of her own. The wonderful fruits that bore food for them both had begun to ripen yet again, many of them just beginning to be ready to harvest. Her magic encased an apple, plucking it gently and bringing it over to herself. Taking a bite out of it, she kept humming between her mouthfulls.

Much like Tuli, Avan was also awake at such a late time in the night. He was lying on his bed, his cloak lying not far from him. His wings were folded neatly at his side as he stared at the old scroll infront of him, pausing every once in a while to make a note on another scroll that floated with the use of his magic.

His room was rather dim, the only thing lighting it was the faint lines of his cloak that had remained lit when he had taken it off and the beautiful moonlight that flooded though his window. Not a single candle was alight in his room, but Avan found what little light he had was enough to go by. However, as he paused to look through the moon, he sighed softly.

He gently placed the scroll he was writing down as he paused to pull himself off of his bed. He used his magic to pull his cloak over to him and pulled it on, watching as the lines sprung to life the moment he settled in it. He gently moved around the few stacks of books he had pulled from his study and headed into the hallway. He paused to look at Tuli's door for a few brief seconds before he headed toward the stairs and out to the garden.

Once outside, he raised his head to the moon, smiling softly as the moonlight flooded across his face. His gaze shifted to his garden as he started to trot though it. Focusing on the plants that were growing, he almost failed to take notice of the faint sound of Tuli's lullaby. However, when he did he came to a complete stop as his ears perked up. He quickly figured that it was Tuli, and he slowly made his way to the center of his garden.

When he reached the center, he stepped out with a soft, but worn smile as he looked at Tuli. "Well, well," he said softly as he titled his head slightly. "And to think I thought I would be the only one awake at this time."

Her eyes drifted from the garden to Avan, the apple she had been eating finished. "I guess you're not the only one up then." She said softly. Rising from her place to allow Avan some space, her eyes then turned to the ground. "I should be sleeping, but it's prooved that sleep won't be my friend tonight." Tuli added, looking back up at him. Her stomach churned at the thought of the most recent nightmare, trying to get the image out of her head. As the soft noise of her cloak falling from the bench could be heard as she left the bench, the almost lifelessness in her eyes vanished and was replaced with a calm look.

Tuli walked closer to Avan, suddenly wishing to have his protection surrounding her. As to why she felt such a force pulling her to him, Tuli had no clue. Yet she did still stay a few hoofsteps away, she searched his eyes quietly for something. "I should go inside... I need to get some sleep..." She said as an excuse, her head turning away and lowering slightly. But then again, something stopped her. "I'm sorry Avan, it's just hard for me to go to sleep without a bad dream." Another excuse. It pained her to shove what made her the mare she was beneath the layers she exposed, yet it was for the best.

Avan watched with a still movement as Tuli spoke. He wanted to draw closer, but kept himself where he was, listening her excuses. He could tell that something was bothering her...But when she finally admitted to the nightmares that haunted her a sad look came across his face as he watched her. "Tuli..." he said softly as he took a step forward, his wings flaring slightly under his wings. "There is no reason to be sorry; I know exactly how you feel..." he didn't wish to say more; but it was true that he knew exactly how she felt. It was rare for Avan to sleep; in fact the only time he did do so was when his body finally gave out of sheer exhaustion. He tried never to sleep...He always feared the nightmares that lurked in his mind.

"I can't run from them anymore... I've given up when the comfort I once had left me. I want it back, but I know it won't return." Her gaze had returned to the distant one she had, to be replaced by her looking once again at Avan, once again searching for any aspect of hope that he could just possibly rebuild her strength that had been demolished. She lifted her hoof as if she was going to move closer, but put it back down.

Avan titled his head sadly as he looked at Tuli. "I...I suppose I am unable to run from my nightmares also; tales of my past which still haunt me...Of things I could of done differently..." he grew silent for a few seconds, turning his head away; afraid that she would see the sharp pain that flashed though them and the misery he held for his choices. "But," he finally said as he forced himself to look at her. "What can we do but face our fears? The Nightmares that haunt us, that try to pray on us? Should...Should we not be strong, to stand against it?" Of course, there was a small...Maybe large part of Avan that didn't believe his words and thought they were nothing more than empty wishes. He had done horrible things in his past for a reason that he now saw as foolish. Should he not be reminded of his misdeeds...But Tuli? He felt that she deserved none of the horrible dreams that haunted her...He felt she should have the soundless sleep he felt he would get no more; even if he had no idea why they haunted her.

Avan had hit her deepest wish. But the thing was, she had never tried. "But sometimes facing it is a hard thing to do...  I've found that these have started up again since I visited Canterlot." Tuli felt sympathy for the kind stallion by her, understanding. She hated the thought of sleeping, it was rare that she would get a kinder dream. Yawning, it was true even though she had no clue as to how he could handle sleeping, Avan always seemed so cheerful. "Avan, I never really knew why... Out of everypony... You talked to me at the Gala...Showed kindness to me... Why?" It was out of the blue, but while they were both up, she was curious as to why he ever did. There were so many others he could have talked to, Celestia... Luna... all the Princesses. Her head tilted to the moon, shining mercilessly in the sky, free from any chains bound. If pain had freed many others, why should they be of exception?

Well, that final question took Avan by surprise. He lowered his head slightly as he thought though his answer. "Because...I thought with you I could be myself perhaps. I held distaste for noble ponies that cared only for themselves, and I was far to scared to speak to the princess...But you, I felt that I could speak to without worry." He lifted his head slightly, but there was a bit of pain. Even with the talk of being himself around her, he had lied easily and very much to her. He hid his past and pain from her; even what he truly was in fear of what would happen. "But even then, we both hid our secrets...Some which may be bigger than others."

Her eyes locked on Avan, his answer taking her slightly by surprise. "We have..." Tuli looked down, guilt sweeping over her. Lifting her head back up, she walked closer to Avan and hugged him. "But somethimes it may be best to keep some things secret." She still kept Avan in her embrace, looking distant as she thought about the deepest secret she kept. But within the past week, Tuli had found the comfort she had wanted so much in Avan. "I just don't want to ever go back..." She whispered to herself, sighing and ending the warm embrace she had given Avan. "I think I'm not going to go back to sleep for awhile..."

The last thing Avan had been excepting was for Tuli to hug him. He grew stiff for a few seconds, before he let himself relax under her sweet embrace. As he listened to her, he couldn't help but wonder if hiding his wings were truly for the best. Surely she wouldn't care for the truth he was an alicorn, but he feared to burden her with the truth that he would surely outlive her. 

However, when Tuli released him from the hug, he turned to look at her with a soft sad and tired look in his eyes. "If you wish...I'll stay with you," he said with a small flicker of his wings that shifted his cloak slightly as it pulsed in the sweet moonlight. "After all, this is one night that is to beautiful to be alone tonight."

Those words made it seem as if she had a huge burden off of her shoulders. "Please? The company of some pony would make it much better..." But what she hoped the most was that inn his company, she'd hopefully actually be able to sleep. Her cloak swayed slightly in the breeze, with a yawn from the mare accompanying it. "It is a beautiful night, even if I am rather tired." She said, closing her eyes for a brief moment. Tuli was still standing fairly close to Avan, silently asking herself as to why she felt so happy around him. Yes, he had been a very kind gentlecolt to her, even though she denied any thoughts otherwise.

Avan smiled softly when Tuli agreed for him to stay. He raised his head to stare up at the moon as she spoke as he nodded. "Yes...Luna is very skilled at creating a beautiful night, is she not?" he said with a soft voice.

Tuli deeply agreed. "She is amazing. I could think of nopony better who could keep the night so pure and beautiful" She always loved how skilled the princess was. Her eyes locked on the moon, as how you could look and wonder at it's beauty. It was too sad that one couldn't gaze at the sun and do the same without blinding oneself.

Avan lowered his head slightly, his wings shifting slightly. "Sometimes I wish I could see Luna herself, but I fear I don't have the courage to speak to her..." He wondered softly if Luna was even aware of the events that took place after she was locked away in the moon...Was she aware of what he did?

It was harder to talk to a princess than one might've thought. She knew Avan understood this. "Yes..."
She turned to where she was beside Avan, still looking at the sky with wondering eyes. "I've felt that if I were ever made to an Alicorn, One thing I'd surely need would be guidance..." Tuli said quietly. But she would be happy, none the less. There seemed to be more Alicorns known now, however. It was obvious Equestria was growing, greatly.

Well, that caused him to pause, before he glanced at Tuli. "I'm sure being an Alicorn is very hard even if it means you are a princess...Being forced to watch your friends grow old and die without you while you barely age...I'm sure it is a toll hard on anypony who is not prepared to deal with such things..." he grew silent. That was something he weighted about a lot, wondering if he was strong enough to outlive his current friends...And he found it hard to even think about parting with Tuli, but he knew that one day it would come to be; there was no doubt about it...One day, his father would come for her.

The day she'd die, Tuli knew it would be hard. "That's one thing I never want to know... How one could bear the pain of someone they loved dying after death stared them in their face." She wondered how the Princesses could handle it. Tuli yawned, sitting down as she kept watching the sky. It was late at night, and sleep now stared her down. Usually, with a nightmare, she would lay crying until she just fell asleep. Tonight, though, she knew some pony would be with her and keep her safe. In the back of Tull's mind though, a new fear had been released. What if she had begun to be too trusting of him, and all of a sudden he turned on her? Many of her friends had done this, but with Avan she felt differently about him doing that. Yet she would surely have to deny becoming so trusting for her own safety, even if she wished not to.

Avan lowered his head, his ears flicking back slightly. "It is never easy..." he muttered to himself. He turned his head slightly, smiling softly when he noticed how tired she was. As an Alicorn he was able to not sleep for longer, altought it still put a strain on his body to do so. "If you need to sleep, you can. I promise I won't leave your side, Tuli."

"Okay.... I'm just tired from being up late last night.." Tuli sighed, wishing she didn't always have to sleep. A chill crept up her back when a soft wind blew and the cool air passed through her cloak. But even though the illumination from Avan's cloak made it easier to see, the dark area made her just a little drowsier.

Avan smiled at her with a worn, tired look. He almost wanted to yawn, but kept it down as he shook his head slightly. "I'm tired also...But I do promise to stay here if you fall asleep..."

Tuli smiled, sitting down where she was beside Avan. "I'm so thankful that we met, Avan..." Stifling a yawn, she knew it was the time to sleep. Even though they were in the garden, Tuli wouldn't mind sleeping by the benches.

"So am I, Tuli," Avan said as he also sat down, smiling softly at Tuli. He paused as he glanced at the moon and stars, before he ruffled his wings before he closed his eyes and started to sing a song. It was a soft, sweet lullaby that he recalled his mother singing to him when he was such a young foal before he went to bed. "Lunam et stellas in coelo saltare lente," he started slowly, although it was a tongue that he knew that Tuli would not understand. "Vt nox ipsa cantat laudem, To laberetur in somnum et somnia vocant suaviter, Et esto ibi usque dum sol surgit."

All the while, Tuli had continued to grow tired. She then leaned on Avan, her cloak still wrapped around her. Closing her eyes, she softly swayed to the tune. She continued to listen, her eyes shut lightly as the moonlight stayed wrapped around them, the white light combined with Avan's cloak emitting a soft glow. It was warming, as the feeling of security embraced the mare tightly.

Avan paused as he watched Tuli, before chuckling softly. "I suppose my lullaby isn't going to help you stay awake, will it?" he asked softly with a light smile. "It did always put me to asleep easily..."

Tuli had fallen asleep when he was talking, laying on the round comfortably, her cloak tight around her and comforting. A soft sigh had escaped her body before she drifted off to sleep, her mind clouded with already active dreams.
