Plunge into Darkness
I was raised among monks with a Diva like me named Ricardo, it is incredibly rare for one diva to meet another of their kind in any lifetime so we made a choice to remain together and share our experiences. We were trained with the monks and we both decided that healing would be a great area for us to build our talents and we worked very hard at our training for many years. One dark night it started raining fiercely and there as lightning and thunder and the home we were living in felt as though it may be swept away with the wind. While we decided to meditate in the main quarters and wait out the storm together the wall next to us abruptly came crashing inwards. The next thing we saw were two giants making their way into the quarters and snatching up monks and the two of us in their massive hands. All of us were thrown into giant crates and transported for more than a day, but it is difficult to know just how long, to an odd cave in the middle of nowhere. The forest surrounding the cave was inhabited by intelligent creatures and surrounded by dense and vast forest. It soon became apparent that we would not be rescued anytime in the near future and the monks that were taken with us were constantly disappearing from the cave with the giants, never to return. We never knew what was happening to the monks but we were concerned with our own safety as well. The giants somehow knew of our abilities as healers and used well fashioned mind control spells to force myself and Ricardo to heal for them while their raided larger towns. We never knew why they were taking so many prisoners and giants are not intelligent enough to be doing this without there being someone in control of the situation. One day we thought of an escape that would get us far away from the giants, but it would require that Ricardo and I split ways to confuse them and lead them away from the other. Ricardo assured me that we should find each other in the future and he explained that he would leave small rocks which would be enchanted to remain where they are and shine a bright purple when they are seen by an enlightened being like a diva. These rocks would have a point to them that would show which direction to continue and they would lead me to him, but I was not to start my search for five years, to give one another enough time to escape properly from the giants and whatever being they are being controlled by. We were able to enchant the giants ale to make them fall into a deep sleep and escape that night, five years ago, when we said goodbye only so we could say hello much later. Now I am on the journey to find him and be reunited by the only other diva I had ever met.
