In the deep emptiness of space, was a tree. This was no ordinary tree at all since it was doing perfectly alright for itself, here in the open outer space!
The tree was a blindingly pure white, with a light touch of gold held throughout it. The leaves of the tree were the same pure white, and they were as massive as small islands. The branches were as thick as regular-sized continents, and they stretched on endlessly into the horizon, of the empty outer space. The trunk of the tree was so immense and broad, just as it should be for a creation so grand and magnificent, that it took up a scope which your eyes could not see from one end to another.
The great tree stood grounded to a landmass that was so enormous and stretched on and on, for what would feel like forever to a mortal's mind. The roots of the tree had dozens of planets of varying sizes and coloring, indicating clearly their various temperatures, acting as anchors to the tree so that they could prevent it from drifting off.
A myriad of different stars glittered brightly in the background of the tree. Bathing the tree with many different colors, creating a sight of pure beauty and wonder for al that laid their eyes upon it to see.
Here stood the World Tree! The first tree to ever come into existence, and the greatest one in all of the known cosmos!
On its body lived countless lifeforms and many different and strange races. Some knew of the existence of the tree, but many more did not even have a clue of the land which they stood upon and called home. Regardless, the tree does not care about that at all, since in its view they were all nothing but small little ants which it enjoyed watching benevolently from time to time.
However, for those who know very well and grasped their place on this realm, they worshiped and cared for the great tree with absolute dedication and devotion.
At the crown of the tree, three women of striking elvish beauty converged on top of the leaves and small branches of the crown. Which to them looked like an endless white expanse that reached out as far as the eyes could see.
A slight wind rustled the leaves pushing the leaves and branches into a sway. At that, the three women immediately fell to one knee and bowed their heads right away. The kept at their kneel for a while until another wind blew once more in meadow-like expanse, signaling for them to all stand-up.
Then the elven women in the middle with pale purple skin and hair of the same color but trending towards black spoke up. Her voice was so heavenly and divine that it sounded like birds chirping away in the morning dawn.
"You called for us, mother?" She said in a respectful and solemn tone that her luminescent purple eyes carried as well.
At the elven women's question, a deep, gravel-like ancient voice spoke up from out of nowhere and everywhere at exactly the same time. The voice was no louder than a whisper at all, but it was perfectly clear for all to hear.
"Yes... Keara... I did." Was the only response, given by the voice.
Seeing that there was not another answer coming forth to provide clarity, the elven women on the left stepped forward. She was simply pure gold, just like how the other elven woman, Keara, was complete purple. This elven woman with long pointy ears, a yellow, golden, skin tone that shined like pure gold, and hair of the same color, like a small ray of golden sunlight.
Her golden eyes were downcast to the ground in respect as she spoke up with that rich, angelic voice that these women seem to carry. "For what exactly did you call us for, mother?"
After a long moment, the voice spoke up once more as it came from nowhere and everywhere, "Ahhh... it seems like.... change... is upon us... Taeriel."
Not letting the silence rein once more the elven women on the right articulated the question all three women had. "What is this change that coming, you speak of, mother?" This elven woman was pure white all around from head to toe. Not stopping at that question, she asked one more while she was at it.
"And what does it have to do with us, mother?"
The voice finally gave the three elven women an answer that they could comprehend and it was something that shocked them to their very core!
"Another... Eternal being... is on the rise, Miriel!"
