Yu Zhu jumped and looked around, Lin Yu cradled her head in her hands looked at Yu Zhu, her eyes were golden slits. Whenever Lin Yu was at home, she preferred to have her true eyes and sometime went by her true form.

Yu Zhu and Lin Yu knelt in the garden, holding their swords above their heads. Though their arms were sore, neither of them complained. They had held their swords since the sun was high in the sky and now the sun was sinking into the green valley. Grandfather hobbled into the dusty yard, and elder brother Tu Suo came in as well. Grandfather sat down and looked at the two girls, their faces were red with perspiration, both of them stubbornly remained silent. Lin Yu’s hand bled down her arm sluggishly, she bit her lips to stop from crying. Even though grandfather said if they apologized and promised to never go back to the forest, they could put down the swords, Lin Yu and Yu Zhu refused.

Lin Yu was worried, but Grandfather only shook his head and told her to leave Yu Zhu alone. she looked as lost  as she did when she came to the cottage four years ago.

Slowly, Yu Zhu seemed to get better. Yet sometimes, Lin Yu caught Yu Zhu staring at the direction of the forrest. One day, Yu Zhu looked out the window and realized that she hadn’t been back in the forest for half a year. On some nights the acorn floated like an ethreal dragonfly around her room, trying to lead her to the forest.

It pointed to the trees and floated towards the woods again, it would lead her home  She smiled and patted the tree, after all she was in the land of demons, it wasn’t so strange if a tree had a little bit of magic.
