“What was that?” Ash asked, completely astonished. “Broomsticks and Apples float in your house?”
“No, His name is Alvin. He is a little bit shy at the start, you see?”
“What do you mean by ‘his name’? Who is he?” Ash was completely confused now.
“He is an Amicus…” Aurora smiled and said something that confused Ash even more. “I’ll be back in a minute”
Now, what is an Amicus? He thought. Ash waited patiently and looked around the small house. The house looked more beautiful and bigger inside. A sweet fragrance was in the air. He rotated his neck and found a canvas on the wall behind him. Ash found it strange as the canvas was incomplete. In the painting, there stood a girl by a cherry blossom tree. But the other half of canvas was empty, untouched.
Aurora came back with a tray in her hands, with two glasses of orange juice and cookies; she put it on the table.
“Would you like to eat some cookies? I and Alvin made them together.” Aurora asked.
Ash picked up one cookie from the plate. As soon as he took a bite, it dissolved in his mouth like hot chocolate. After finishing the first, he picked up another. “They’re really delicious. Thank you. How do you make them?”
“Alvin says it’s a secret recipe, sorry.” Aurora said. “But you can come here whenever you like to have some.” Ash smiled.
He just completely forgot about for what he came here. Suddenly, he noticed only one earring in Aurora’s ears and woke up. “I am so sorry; I just came here to give you this.”
He picked out the beautiful peacock earring from his pocket. “I think you dropped it when we met on the Sanctus Lake…” He handed it over to Aurora.
Aurora stood up. “Thank you so much, Ash. I’ve been searching for this the whole time, and it was with you.” She looked at the peacock earing, like it was away from her for years.
“I didn’t know that it was so important it you.” Ash stood up and said.
She choked up and lifted her eyelashes revealing her teary eyes, “Thanks, Ash. Isn’t it strange that we try to find our lost ones in our memories? Isn’t it strange that something becomes so valuable to us, just because our feelings are attached with it? When we lose someone, we try to find their presence in these materialistic things, even when we know that they’ll never…” She took a heavy breath and wiped her eyes. With a smile, she said, “Thanks, Ash.”
“Don’t mention, instead of saying thank you, can you please pack me some cookies for home? I think there’s someone else also who should taste them.” Ash said which made her smile wider. He felt happy to see her beautiful smile back.
“Yeah sure, why not?” She said and came back with a box filled with cookies.
“I think it’s time to leave now, Aurora. Thank you for the cookies. Bye, Take care.” He said and walked down the steps.
“Bye, Ash. I hope we meet again.” Aurora smiled and waved her hand.
I hope so too, Ash whispered waving his hand.
The sun was now shining bright, it was noon. On his way back, he kept humming songs and smiling for no reason. Soon, he got out of the Umbrane forest. As he was crossing the old-looking bridge, he wondered if he was forgetting something. With a splash of water, all the thoughts got cleared.
