The flying stone of light — Three Stones of Destiny

The trio emerged some time later, full of mirth and a little unsteady on their feet. A faug servant smiled at them as they stumbled together across the platform. The three were muttering incoherent grunts in faugish with arms wrapped around shoulders. The sun of Luma was near to the western horizon where a thin line of yellow barely distinguished the far Wastes of Nug beyond the melded hues of green that could be seen through breaks in the clouds. A little to the north of Luma was a star that brightened and moved slightly.

The romantic among the three, Treetam, stopped to look at the star, causing them all to topple in a heap on the platform. She pointed. ‘I think I have refreshed myself with too much Merma-mead. I fancy that wonderful moondrop has moved from its place in the greater sky.’

‘Indeed, your eyes must be rolling, Treet. Moondrops do not move,’ Ezof blurted.

‘Sheez right … or my eyes must be rolling too,’ Mitac managed to say.

All three were now watching the star that continued to grow in size and visibly move across the sky as it seemed to make its way towards them.

Ezof’s jaw dropped. ‘I vow not to drink too much Merma-mead again. I am seeing a vision of light!’

Some faugs who were out on the platform also looked up. The glowing star was taking form, like a shining stone suspended in the air, and they all could hear a low humming that was alien to the ear. The faugs quickened their pace towards the platform and the entrance to Greenfaug, casting up nervous glances at the shining object that whirred ever nearer. The triplets were too drunk and awe-struck to move, and lay with mouths agape at the spectacle.

The object grew larger as it flew rapidly over the forest towards them. Its hum pulsed along with the lights that flickered around it as it revolved. The erfins could only stare at it in amazement, then looked at each other to confirm that they all could see it. This was not how the goddess Yu had been described. She had no shining throne that flew through the sky. She was in the air, and in the great tree that was home to the royals of Greenfaug. She was the tree and spirit. But this … thing … this flying stone of light was not anything they had ever been told about.
