That was then


A young Freya, only 11 years old sat by the side of the half-elf. Faen was a priest of Lurue and Freya had to spend much time with her to learn and study. She watched how soft and kindhearted she was, almost angelic and too good for this world.
The wishes and dreams of others were always more important than what Faen herself wanted. She was happy when others found their luck. No matter how hard to bear i was and how much pain and sorrow of others she had to take. Sometimes it seemed, Faen was always the one who got hurt. But in the end she could smile again. It was like her name that was given to her for her purpose in life:
„Faen – shining“
Every time she could smile and shine like the light itself again.

But not so Freya. When she was older, she caught up Faens way because she couldn't help but always smile or friendly grin. It was her nature....or her destiny chosen by her godess...or both. Yes, it was like compulsion to be freindly and helpful. Not that she never wanted to help. It was her wish to help those who were truely in need.
Her name again had another meaning:
„Freya – lady“. What her parents though to name her that way, she didn't understand.
What does it mean to be a lady? Always behave and pull yourself together. Never whine, never lament something in public? She would have to find her own definition for this. Her northern big mouth wasn't always helpful with it. But also a lady can be someone who shines from the innermost, with their deeds and decisions.

The young fey blooded woman tried so hard to be a good priest, when she was adult. She listened to the dreams and wishes of others. She wanted to help them to make them come true. But some really made it complicated, couldn't or didn't want to speak of everything that bothered them. So she could only help as far as they spoke.

This is now


Sometimes she felt a yearning in her. Yearning to speak her mind if someone was whinig about self inflicted issues. She tought: „Then why don't you learn of your mistakes and change your way, instead of acting like a fool?“
But she reamined compulsively friendly, smiled and tried to help and to calm like her godess wanted, she had to ...and said:
"That's the way it is. I am always kind and happy to help.“

Then it happened. A man was searching for helpers to slay a vampire lord. She went with the group that gathered at the freindly arm. She prayed before they went out. She didn't give up hope no matter how string the servants of that vampire lord had been. Then his pet came...an undead dragon! She could not remember all that this beast did, quickly it was over...

… darkness surrounded her. Only moments, but forming moments she wouldn't forget. She found herself in a glade - green and warm and sunny. She would have rather searched for refuge here. But there was a unicorn, instinctively it spoke to her with a soft voice in her mind. „This glade is not yours to rest and play, not yet.“
For now she felt an impulse to look up to the sky. In one of the clouds, Alcarin was praying for her, she was swept way. Within another moment she found herself back in that dark, disgusting ruins. But it was her choice and she stood up after this first death.

Some die in their adventures on the search to grow and become rich. They fall and stand up like it was nothing. It seemed like it did nothing with them. Like a door, which they could pass into life again however they wanted.
To Freya it said something...she did not yet know what exactly. It wasn't the time. She had to help the others. She healed some of the elves when they got wounded, even one dwarf. Alcarin also was going down after her, but she had one scroll, she had found and kept for a moment like this. She read it, it crumbled to dust in er hands, but it really worked to safe her..sister in faith. Through her some others again could be also saved. So Freya did her part, no matter if others saw it. No matter how small, but deciding it was.

She could speak with Alcarin after everything was behind them. Noone died, at least not the final death. Only the vampire lord wouldn't rise again, no more wicked deeds could he do.
Things became clearer to her. Aidan was right. She wasn't alone with her faith in this lands. She found, it all must have a reason. She had to stop trying to be what she is not. She had to start beeing what she is. Following the most impossible dreams for the sheer miracle of making them reality. Following where life would take her.

No longer would she suppress her blood. Like Lurue sais, that everyone is to praise for their talents, no matter how unique. No matter how different. But that included herself, too. She would have to be a good example. If that also means, beeing a bit more of a fey, so be it.

She would spend the next days alongside her tasks alone. In peace and a peaceful place. Either she would seek out a place in the wild. Or she would rent a room on the rose. But her tasks and duties she would always do. Just that much of her time would be spend the next day in prayers and meditation...and contemplation.

She began to see what is her life purpose, her destiny. With a blink of an eye, she began to see the light.

Taking a life and keeping the balance


Rarely anyone asked for her help. Rarely anyone noticed her. Rarely she got a chance to make a difference in the world. But then that!

She was told of a woman who caused pain and death and suffering. She was spinning intrigues and all of that just because she wanted the man for herself​. She made his love take her own life. So in some way she killed her. She was resonsible for so many twisted experiments, twisted magic and deaths. They were right, there was no joy in what she did, she rather took away joy and love. To reason with her hasn't been possible. Wait, not possible? Yes, because she didn't let them talk to her. All she did was right in her twisted mind. All she wanted was her right in her twisted opinion.

"Sometimes a soul is corrupt in such a way, i cannot be saved anymore.", Freya to the others.

So it had to be done, there was no other solution as she, the one who did all of that, had already begun to plan and set things in motion. It would have been just a matter of time until she would have been free again. Free to torture others again. Free to follow up her ill plans again. That had to be stoped before others​ would die by her hand again.

"Those who endanger freedom and safety of others, don't deserve both themselves.", she once has learned from a druid of Mielikki.

So it was done, she died and Freya was part of it. She herself carried her to scaffold. Condemned her to certain death. It had to be done, there was no joy and no pride in doing that. Nor was there disgust, as a healer she saw many disgustung things already. But it was serious, a serious deed to keep those safe who were still in danger by her.
There was no fame, no happiness, just relief. Relief that others were safe as long as she stayed dead. Not only one godess...but also hers might have seen it so.

"The unicorn is symbol for hope, joy and shelter for those in need", dogma of Lurue.

In this way, the weak and poor and needy were safe from that witch. They could live their life free of fear and their love was saved for now. That was all Freya needed...really all?

No, still taking a life is serious, bloody and violent. Violence was the last solution in this case. But she wanted to balance it out. That was by not only doing serious things. Not only chasing after things that were bad and had to be destroyed. Not only fighting things that they were fighting against. The next things he did should be something she was fighting for. Something that brings joy and hope in planning and doing it already.

So she wandered through the lands the next days, taking care to speak nothing evil, see nothing evil and hear nothing evil. She tried to do the good things, bright things and to motivate others to do so if they wanted. Not always easy in these lands, but like Lurue dogma also sais. Nothing is impossible, if only one wants it.

Seeking wrongs to right




It was a while ago that Freya had time to live and act peacefully, keep the balance inside herself and in the world. Sure she was not always the wisest person, but she could feel things around her. She did nod always follow strict rules, but her inner voice.

The next time, this voice told her that something did not feel right. Bringing one person, into a high position and ignoring the effords of of others wasn't right in her eyes. This time it was again her, suffering the ignorance of others, next time it will be innocents suffering or even dying. Next time others might be stopped from fulfilling their dreams and their dreams might be destoryed and so theor hope as well. This was where the chosen of Lurue had to step in, to protect the dreams of others.

She did not attack the guilty herself, not lurk - as it made no sense if they avoided her. So she saw no other way but going about things the other way. It was long ago she did so. She told others what happend and that this injustice had to be stopped, asked them for help even. Yes, in the past, that way brought her the nickname: "Little fey-witch.", though she wasn't even one. But when her blood awoke, and she was forced to let it, she found her own ways, to simply drive away bad things happening. Seeking wrongs to right was one of her divine tasks, though this one she did not seek herself, it found her. "It's not your fault. You had to act as the godess wants you to.". the inner voice reassured her conscience, but then giggled. "His loss, knucklehead!" So yes, someone got to meet her more unpleasant side, if one drives her to become unpleasant. But she didn't see another way without violence, as violence was always the last solution.

In the following days she was relieved, once again able to do things that give joy and hope and shelter to those in need. Fears and heartbreak she did not heal with magic as long as it wasn't asked from her. She listend, tried to sense what the other person felt. So she could react on it and gave er advice by telling her opinion softly. Also she sensed what brings the other one more joy and happiness again. She tried to involve them in those things. For physical wounds can be healed quickly with the right spells and healing supplies. But nothing takes as much time and sensitiveness as helaing a soul. And the fey-blood was sensitive deep inside, more than others even realised. In the end she was still only human, with needs and dreams and wishes like others.
Now events and celebrations were comimg, joy and love, helping others at the same time. Things went more according to plans again.

Saving freedom and protecting dreams


It was a peaceful day actually. Freya met Rin first, then the others. A random meeting in front of the friendly arm. Suddenly in the middle of the group, a pixie male approached. He said that he has an elven friend who needed help, didn't say excatly with what. Just that they should go to the misty forest quickly: Rin, Ronja, Kitty, Vendor and Krueger. They teleported near shady Soubar and wandered.

On the way they where attacked by many orcs, powerful ones. Finally they found the elf and saw, he is the one they should look for. His name was Arris and he seemed to be a druid. There was also a pegasus female named Currien, that was captured and held tied by the orc leaders tent. Arris needed help to save his friend, as they orcs were too many, a plague in these forests.
Image


„...That could have gone better...“, said Arris.

„So much about diplomacy...“, said someone else.

„We came and they threw spells at us. That was their diplomacy...“, answered Freya.

But they had found a beautyful pegasus female near the described tent. Kitty and then Freya talked to her to sooth her. She was freed and they let her go back to her friend. It was their task, their dream, to roam the sky together and watch the forests, like scouting in the air. That way they would fullfill tehir duties and also keep others safe. Freya liked to think so, to think of them as a kind of guardians as well.

Image


The elf offered that he could teach one of the group something to thank them. Noone seemed to have a need to learm something really greater.
But then....Freya understood for herself...and made a decision all of a sudden. Even if she felt something already before. But now it was time to speak and think loud.

„If you want peace, you have to prepare for war at times. You can't always wait out the storm, sometimes you have to bring the storm....Maybe it is time for me to change and learn something new.“

Arris and Currien saw potential in her to teach her. They offered to teach her new powers, powers of storm.

„Then you might have to give something yourself....“, something like that said Krueger.

Freya understood that it's all a give and take. Like in nature it's an ongoing circle. She would give old powers of hers and get new powers. She wanted to be able to protect others. Also she new that powers of storm are still slumbering in her blood. The ties to nature would be still given by her eladrin heritage, the Bralani in her bloodline.

So it was settled. Even after they travelled back, she would go and learn with Arris and Currien every now and then....

Lessons of wind

Image

Freya had to learn while she met with Arris and Currien. Some things were secret, some were open to share. Things she never thought about and noone ever spoke about. She wanted to understand and while the went thought the elements, one after the other. It took time so it was no wonder it couldn't be all known at once.

What happens with air when the wind rises, was also part of it. To know how to control the weather she had to know how it works.

Wind is the flow of air, here on the land it refers to the movement of air.

It is caused by differences in air pressure. Air rushes from high pressure areas to lower ones.

Warm air moves to the edges where it cools down.

Cold air moves toward the middle where it warms up.

Wind direction is given by the direction from which the wind comes.

Sea breezes occur because heat from the Sun takes longer to warm the sea than the land, creating a difference in air pressure.

Wind can provide energy. Sailing ships use wind to power their movement with the help of sails.

Depending on their strength, winds can be known as a breeze, gale, storm or hurricane.

The island od Ulgoth's beard was a good place tp watch and experience those things oneself.

Image

Freya went there sometimes, seeking out a place where there were no enemies that would disturb her and no friends or innocents she woukd endanger when she practised. She had to learn how to channel the wind, to gather the air around her for a brief moment. Then she could form and manipulate it.

It began to work like a spell through the magic in her blood, just that she used the power of her voice. This spell creates a severe blast of air that originates from her, affecting all creatures in its path. Tiny or small creatures might be knocked down or rolled. Medium creatures are unable to move forward against the force of the wind, or if flying are blown back. Large or larger creatures may move normally within.

Depending how strong the wind was, many things could happen, things bended, blown away or even destroyed. So much to take care of before she used it. To call upon the power of wind, Freya also used rhymes from a song she had written a while ago. One of them mostly was enough, giving a feeling of freedom..

Even so, see the wind blows,
it takes us toward the future.
Even so, against dark foes,
fly on the wind and nurture.

Lessons of lightning

Image

Some time passed, a while it took until Frey could control the wind. Then it was time to learn about lightning. What is lightning exept something that strikes, seemingly uncontraolled and unprectable when a storm comes up? That is what Freya in first steps needed to understand, to know what she does.

Lightning is a sudden discharge that occurs during a thunderstorm.This discharge occurs between electrically charged regions of a cloud, between two clouds, or between a cloud and the ground.

The charged regions in the atmosphere temporarily equalize themselves through this discharge referred to as a strike if it hits an object on the ground, and a flash, if it occurs within a cloud. Lightning causes light in the form of plasma, and sound in the form of thunder.

Lightning may be seen and not heard when it occurs at a distance too great for the sound to carry as far as the light from the strike or flash.

A good place was a high hill in the troll hills. The dangers left behind at night, a high plave served well to watch the effects.

Image

Far from the dwarven stornghold, nothing was here that could be harmed or destroyed that shouldn't be. The dwarves sure would be grateful for one or the other troll less, if they would be stuck by accident. One less that also would lurk around for unknowing travellers or adventurers.

The base was the same was with the wind, the stormy powers of the Bralani in her bloodline. Just that she had to summon and gather clouds first. They came together until the collided. That was needed and existential. Without them, no lightning could come out of the blue.
Then immediately upon completion of the spell, and some moments thereafter, she could call down lightnings. They hit the targets she chose as she learned while practising. It could also strike several targets around her, if they wouldn't simply dodge it.

This time a more powerful rhyme helped to form these powers. It was another part of this wind song. Still wind was needed to move the coulds, clouds for the lightning.

If there's a god somewhere outthere,
let me establish once more and fly.
To save the world, right there.
It will be lightning from sky.

Defender of dreams


She held the letter in her hand, only adressed to Herran, not to her. Again she felt excluded, not accepted. It hurt her deeply and the writer was lucky, not to be near at that moment. Those she wanted to be friends and family did not even tell her a word, sent letters behind her back. The circumstance that Herran had his mail sent to her, let her learn about this.

But even worse was, the writer only wanted, demanded, asked. He wanted things from Herran without asking what he wants. Without caring about his wishes and dreams. No signs of beeing ready to listen or to give. This looked like they only wanted to takem his help and his time. Taking it away from time that is left to fullfill his dreams. Even if they seemed crazy or naiive to some, Freya took Herrans wishes seriously. She would let nothing come between them and making his drems come true.
Despite of her forgiving nature, one thing was for sure: This would have an after play! It was time to make someone think brfore they act once again. To defend someone elses dreams, to not let them get lost.

The Bralani in me


The stormy and passionate blood of the Bralani somtimes made her want to explode sometimes. But still beeing chosen by Lurue meant spreading joy and hope to her. Two controversal souls living inside one chest. So she had to keep negative emotions back at times, let the cheerful side take over. Still there was this compulsion, always to smile even in the hardest times. At times with Rins's help she managed to break this compulsion and let people know what she really thinks and feels. In that weird way, both sides kept eachother in balace, at least sometimes they could.
"It won't make you popular, but it will grant you respect and stop people from trampling around on you."

Freya could see that at times, but she lived with it. She learned that establishing oneself has to be sometimes. Let wind and strom come up if they ignore a soft breeze.

Thunderbolt!

More lessons followed and Freya also learned to call a lightning that is more concentrated.
Whilest the one she could summon before, where sometime all over the place, all over the enemies, wild and everywhere, these aimed only one target.

Over the hills and outside Soubar she travvelled a little further. The reaching woods are a beautyful place she fould. Pure nature and blessed by the shrine of Eldath there. Just that the gnolls defile it with their presence. Even if she met noone of the circle to go with her, she went alone. Maybe itas better she thought. Maybe she could hit anyone she didn't want to hurt as long as she couldn't control the stormsinger powers completely.

Time passed and she tried near the waterfall to give her voice more power. Singing against or with the noises of the water, she could that way practise also to be heard in battle if it was needed.

Image

Freya used what she learned and what she knew now. A thunderbolt or lightning bolt is a symbolic representation of lightning when accompanied by a loud thunderclap. The word may also have been a description of the consequences of a close approach between two planetary cosmic bodies. It could have several meanings.
As a divine manifestation the thunderbolt has been a powerful symbol throughout history, and has appeared in many mythologies. Drawing from this powerful association, the thunderbolt is often found in military symbolism and semiotic representations of electricity.

Somehow it all was right in some way in different situations to her. She could feel how she could understand the natural circle. Again it was all abour circles as she accessed the new powers.

Image


And it worked! If gnolls where near and attacked, she could focus on only one of them. As long as the target was far enough away from her, she could try to hit. Also she could later learn to do this with those that came nearer.
The thunderbolt hit them, made their heart stop for a moment. Even if they fought on, they were already weakened. The cloud over them bundled and they mostly didn't see it coming. As fast as it was, it was already there when they felt it. It was too late for them...

Ballad of Winterstorm

In later times, Freya learned about storms, real storms. A storm or a severe snowstorm characterized by strong sustained winds, that must ne very swift and lasting for a prolonged period of time—typically three hours or more. A ground blizzard is a weather condition where snow is not falling but loose snow on the ground is lifted and blown by strong winds.

Blizzards can create life-threatening conditions. Traveling can become difficult or even impossible due to blowing or drifting snow, reducing the visibility to near zero at times.
The strong winds and cold temperatures accompanying blizzards can combine to create another danger. The wind chill factor is the amount of cooling the human body feels due to the combination of wind and temperature. During blizzards, with the combination of cold temperatures and strong winds, very low wind chill values can occur. Exposure to low wind chill values can result in frostbite or hypothermia.

So, no matter how unserioously some people took this, a storm can be deadly!

Maybe even Saul didn't realize it, but Freya could feel it. She had accompanied him one day into the swamp outside Soubar. Not only hobgoblins and other living monsters resided there, but also undead.
The vampires had powerful magic, even druidic spells. It took more of her new powers than usual to fight them. But she needed that field practise. At one point she simply got fed up with one of those bitches. Yes, in such rare moments of wrath she thought so.

"Enough!", she hissed, began to sing a song of combining powers to become stronger. Then she saw first clouds gathering, the air felt suddenly cold.

Image

Then snow fell, fast and merciless it was. It took away the sight from the enemies. Near to nothing they could see. But Freya was in control, just that she saw the real powers of such for the first time herself. The strong wind threw that vampire with her dangerous but annoying spells into the water. She could clearly hear it as it was torn apart. The vampire found the true death.
For a moment before the area and sky became clear again, all was covered in the white of the snow.

Image

Just some brief moments, maybe to short to notice. But Freya had seen what the lessons brought with them. She was now even if limited, able to control the weather. But she never would abuse it to get her personal advantage. She would only use it if again.... there was no other solution but to fight. These powers should not be used without thinking before one acts.

But it had one affect: Letting voice and feelings and the pwoer of her blood flow, was another step, another way to break that compulsion that forced her to be friendly even to those who might not have deserved it.

Breaking compulsions

It was over, love and things lost to Freya. Still in the first shock about what happened she tried to believe. Tried to understand if she understood it right. Sadly she did and he confirmed it. Before thoughts like, life is over and others could come up, things demanded her attention.

Where she had always lost her goals for the sake of others, now others tried to take what was left. "What is this about? You took all my chances to be helpful and the dreams of others elsewhere. I won't let you take the rest as well." Long enough Freya had watched and smiled and even helped those people. Now she felt like people were abusing her situation, and her hours if absence to do what they want without asking her.

There was still this complusive behaviour in her, that forced her to be friendly and act as the godess wants her to. But could it be the will of the godess, that dreams of others are stolen? No! It was her task to help others to fulfill their dreams even if she had to defend them.
She had talked to somepeople and yes, Lannia was right. Freya had been too nice at times. She took what Gunthar had told her about breaking compulsions. She didn't use pain, but used something that certainly would make her able break free.

Her necklace with the Luruean symbol was the focus of the pictures she called forth in her mind. Either the persons were imagined as orcs, destroying nature. Defiling beautiful places with their presence or killed animals just for the joy of killing. She didn't mind half-orcs if they could behave, but orcs always digusted her.

Image

Image

Also thinking of Necromancers or Thayans helped. Seeing them slaying unicorns or torturing them for sick experiments made her inner storm rage. She knew she had to act in such situations.

Image

Then it was done! All easily Freya made rules and wrote down bans. She felt like she had to do that like for children, but it worked. No longer would she have to let others abuse her goodness for their personal gain.
She would have to find a balance, beeing true to herself and good to others as always. But if things went too far, she had her way to stop bullies and prevent others from beeing bullied. She would stay who she always was, but also wouldn't put up with everything any longer.

A light in Darkness

A while passed and Freya could forget all the dark things she saw herself surroubded by in certain moments. That was a while later, something else came to her mind. Rather she could say someone else. I was like the darkness lighted up.

Quote:
"If we don't fear the darkness...
If we face it, no matter how much it surrounds us, we can endure it.
When we endured it, the sky lights up.

Lights and colors appear and we can be happy to see them.
We only see them, nothing else matters.
In the end we find hope and joy in seeing it.
It's the small things we often overlook.
Like the Lights in the North.
They seem like a mood of nature,
but they are at a closer look something wonderful."

Freya would go where Saul was waiting. The garden seemed more colorful not only because he was so radiant. All weight fell from her. All troulbles were far away, even did not exist. Things got better when she accepted the flower given to her, still she loves flowers, and she was happy.

A poisoned Tree

One night when Saul was on [quote][/quote]duty, Freya went out into the forests, the deeper forests where she would be alone with her godess. She had grown to a compley personality, sometimes missunderstood if one didn't know her true nature really. So she would speak with her godess, find new focus and power, noone could take away from her so easily. Here they weer alone benath a tree in the moonlight.
Noone would be able to hear her words.
Noone making them what they're not.
Noone would be able to twist them.
Noone could hold them against her.


Freya spoke them in her heart and mind and only Lurue would listen. She was musing about a poem she read, the last events and her feelings. Most of all there was pain and wrath. She felt it about others accusing her for something she never meant to do or say. They hit her, would beat her with wrath in their words, but without any right.
That poem somehow was helpful, it helped to reflect about the events and herself. The longer she thought about it, found in the books in Beregost. She recited it for Lurue in silence, without any spoken words anyone else could hear.


I was angry with my friend;
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I waterd it in fears,
Night & morning with my tears:
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night.
Till it bore an apple bright.
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine.

And into my garden stole,
When the night had veild the pole;
In the morning glad I see;
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.



She tought by herself and at the same time spoke quietly to Lurue:"What do we learn of this, queen of the unicorns? Wrath is poison. If someone throws it at me, i shouldn't get infected. I should heal it, prevent it from spreading inside me, prevent myself from infecting everything around me.

Help me to keep others from making something of me that i'm not. Help me, not to become the monster they see in me. Let us make them see the truth and understand, i'm not what they see, i am what i am. My life is in my own hands to make even the impossible possible. As you know and still trust me, i will trust you."


The light of the moon drew her attention, she saw some glittering lights around it and took it as a sign, she was still on the right path. So the wrath in her flew away, she could focus on things that might come. She had time to prepare them. Still in her eyes, life is not a competition about who is loved by everyone most. It was about beeing loved by Lurue and those who are close to her. Nothing else mattered for now. If noone believed in her, her godess did. If noone understood her, her godess did. That knowledge would be enough for her.

Then she left with new found happiness and hope back to Beregost. Noone new she was here. The only quiet witnesses that anyone had been, were some freshly picked flowers as an offering. If not taken away by the godess, the tree would take them as a nourishment an grow, all healthy, all pure, all natural.

((To oocly serve justice: Thanks to William Blake for that fitting poem. ;) ))

The prayers were heard...

...changes occured that noone was able to stop now. Not anymore. Who could even stop the gods from divine intervention? Only the gods...

Freya accepted the changes and trusted in the new way her godess showed her. On this way she tried new things and wrote new songs. One was never heard as she decided to first perform it when the time comes. Noone could have heard it before. Only Saul...one day in their rooms he could have seen a songbook she left behind in a hurry.

It was open and so the lyrics could be seen by Saul alone. Sure this song was written about the time they first met. It pictured the feelings she already had back then, but did not yet dare to speak or show too openly.


Yellow and Gold

Even though, I love you this much,
i'm dodging your touch.
As we walk you smile innocently.
And i haven't told you this early.

On the wide fields,
my heart already yields.
On the way to our duties,
the sun shines on you to tease.

Yellow and gold, you're wearing.
So mannish i'm not daring,
to say how much your cloak
my inner defense broke.

I love you so much it's painful.
But my heart is enlightened, blissful.
Yellow and gold,
It's the color of love,
Gold yellow gold
Which is it? Can I get my feelings across to you?
My indecision is...yellow and gold, i need to tell you.

The sun before my eyes says everything.
For you i would do anything.
With this shining color of gold.
I can't even say it, my lips hold.

I'm happy, though I'm a coward.
Not yet i'm pushing forward.
With our relationship as it is now.
From my heart someday i'll bow.

Yellow and gold. The summer is passing by.
I can't do it forever, keep walking by.
Yellow and gold, the deadline for love.
Yes, no, yes. You must be sent from above.

Because you're so precious to me,
i can't wait nor keep it inside me.
Yellow and gold, the sun shines.
My light in dark, see the signs.

Yellow and gold, It's the color of love, Gold yellow gold.
My heart and soul, strong emotions they can't hold.
Which is it? I could get my feelings across to you.
Then i told you, yellow and gold, i love you.


A while later Freya had decided, it seemed soon for some. But why should one lie about love if it's true?
