Where We Watch the World (story)

Home: a place I didn’t know any more. I ran from my people; my home. An outcast for so many reasons…I couldn’t be there. My people wanted nothing to do with me. They saw me as a freak for not having all the features of my kind.  No white hair to speak of, my red eyes never came to be.  I wanted to be in the light; see the world. Not remain underground and in the dark.  I wanted to touch the world and bring her closer to me. No bloodshed; it was all too much. The world needed to be embraced and loved and my people wanted no parts of it. So I left home to find a place to fit in the world.

I found a thicket, quiet and peaceful. Strolling through the beautiful and serene forest, I happened upon a unicorn. She was nothing like I had ever seen; only what my father had shown me in the scrolls and in the stories he told.  Her hue not like her kind, she too was an outsider. She saw me and welcomed me to her space. “Sit with me child without home,” she said, “I see your pain. You are lost and seeking shelter. Stay with me; you are safe here.”

I sat with her, watching as her hoof touched the water. In it, pictures of me, my life…faded and reappeared. I sat with her, she showed me how to see the world in the water. Scenes shifted to others in pain: man, woman, child…animals.  She saw everything.  She cried for all of us, tears falling from her eyes. “The world was suffering,” she said.  All she could do was watch; unable to intervene; unable to fix it. She began to teach me. She said, “Each ripple tells a different story.  Each ripple, someone’s actions…the wave that follows is the result of their actions.” Each ripple…told its story to her…to us, like a secret that only we could see in full. No twists, no exaggerations…just here in this space where we watched the world through ripples.

Her guardians stood motionless as I sat with her. Never gazing upon the mythical beauty that was she; only keeping her safe…they watched this sacred place ready to strike at those who’d dare intrude. She was a sacred animal, strange for her difference…but so beautiful because of it. She was hurting too, her light fading. I held her carefully to share some of mine with her. “I will take care of you,” I whispered. She took my care; never flinching and I held tight to her. And finally, I felt home.
