Writing Prompt: Tree And Dance

Writing Prompt: Tree And Dance

Veronica sat by the tree and waited. She didn’t know how long she had been waiting for Sadie to show up. It seemed like hours, but it probably was only ten minutes. Veronica had a habit of being way too early to every event she had ever attended in her life. Most saw that as a virtue, but she saw it as a pain. She wasn’t exactly the most patient person in the world.
She heard a rustling to her left. She looked over to see Sadie stepping through the bushes. She looked as beautiful as ever. She had long red hair and the deepest green eyes imaginable. The green dress she wore fit her snuggly showing off every single curve. She made Veronica feel dull in comparison. Her hair was a shoulder-length dull blond. She was wearing a dress as well. It was a simple purple plaid fluffy dress.
When she reached Veronica, she hugged her. She was all smiles and sunshine. A person could get lost in the positivity that poured out of her daily. Not many people knew of the darkness she held deep inside herself. The darkness she pulled from everybody daily. Only Veronica seemed to know. Maybe because she consistently pulled darkness from others as well. That’s why they held such a deep bond.
“Do you really think this will work?” She asked in a whisper.
“I really do hope so. Mrs. Harvey said that all we had to do was the dance by this tree at midnight and repeat the spell exactly.”
“It just seems so silly. What if somebody sees us?”
“Sade, everybody thinks we are weird anyway. They only take a shining to you because of whatever spell you put off daily. They are drawn to you. Besides, nobody comes out this way.”
“Okay. I’m just nervous. I really want this to work.”
“Me too. Okay. We have two minutes left.”
At the stroke of midnight, they started the dance that we had been practicing all week. The one Mrs. Harvey taught them. They repeated the spell three times to make sure that it took hold. They didn’t mess up or stumble at all. I was really beginning to appreciate the fact that we practiced so much.

Goddess of Light
Hear my plea
Take this darkness
Away from me

Goddess of Light
Hear me now
Take the darkness
Give me back my power

Goddess of Light
I thank you
I am your servant
Forever and always

After they were finished with the dance and the spell, they sat against the tree. They were both lost in our own thoughts. I felt so many emotions and power pulsing through my body. Veronica couldn’t speak even if she wanted to. She wanted to take somebody and embrace them. She wanted to shout to the sky that she felt free. That she felt whole. She opened her mouth to speak, but she heard Sadie crying.
“Everything’s going to change now. I think everything we feel and experience will be intensified now.”

“Sadie, what do you mean?”
“I’m not really sure. I just feel like deep in my gut that everything is going to be different now. I’m scared.”
“Me too, but we will figure it out together.”
