The Queen With The Frozen Heart - Flying With The Stars


Sisa grabbed the queen’s hand and felt Kuyllur take hold of her another hand.

Then they were flying high over the night sky.

In the palpating light of the star she could see the land below them.

It was the first time she was not standing on it and she felt earth's yearning to have her in its safety.


And at that moment she was falling.

- Stupid child of the earth, Kuyllur chided her, you will rest safe on it when we arrive but meanwhile you must trust the wind, like your queen.

- Oh, I am a child of the wind and the air, the queen laughed and she rode over the clouds, I have always loved the land and its devotion to our people. But my heart belongs with the sky.

- I don’t know what happened, Sisa muttered, I didn't do anything.


Her magic had turned into a small mouse and hidden under her clothes, scared, just like she was.

Its heart beat against her skin at a terrifying speed and it whimpered in a high voice.

- You are a child of the land, the star laughed, and you need the earth for your magic to survive. But our travelling won’t take long, don’t worry. Nothing shall happen to you, I promise!

Sisa closed her eyes and concentrated on the touch of Kuyllur’s warm skin in her hand and the coolness of the queen’s touch.


Little by little the terrifying feeling of being lost with nothing to hold on to, all alone, without anyone else in the world, left her.

Her magic’s heartbeat became more regular and she started to enjoy the touch of the cool night air against her skin.

- Let go, the queen whispered into her ear, let the wind carry you. It really wants to!

And Sisa could feel how the wind tugged her hair and wanted to fly her off to the sky, towards the awaiting stars.


She relaxed her body and let it flow together with the air, riding the currents and not fighting against them.

She was flying!


With a star!

She opened her eyes to stare at Kuyllur, the magical brother.

  5. Are the cheeks of the two women in the photo near the top deformed on purpose or is that how the camera distorted their faces to appear?

    1. Do you mean their high cheek bones, Andi? Their cheeks have traditional painting on them, the red is from the painting but because of the lighting you can't see the pattern very well.
