Re: Wildwood by:Colin Meloy
Slowly turning around Prue saw that the voice had came from a human size rabbit who was pointing a rake at her. The rabbit lowered his weapon and realizing it was a harmless little girl introduced himself as, Samuel. Samuel agreed to take Prue to the mystics after Prue had asked. Arriving at the mystics home Prue saw an enormous tree put smack in the center of everything. A lady came walking toward Prue and introduced herself as the elder mystic Iphigenia. Iphigenia walked with Prue around the tree explaining to her what the mystics do, she explained that they can talk to the plants, and hear their every word. She further explained that they could do this through meditation, yoga, and silence. After talking Iphigenia invited Prue to a meditation they were going to have around the tree in the next few minutes, Prue declined and asked, “Can you ask the tree if it has seen my brother?” The elder smiled and sat down in the circle. If I was Prue I would have declined too, I do not like yoga, its silent and the poses have weird names like downward dog, what does that even mean?
