(Shawshank Redemption) 

A lone traveler floated along amidst the blue gray waters of the Pacific
Ocean, a lone life raft where a young Elven Harper named Natil 
Summerson-L'Theil and a young human named Katherine Grace lay in the 
bottom of the small craft. Together Natil and her companion are both 
survivors of a disaster at sea. One where the ship named the SS 
Salvadorian Hato exploded after its third night at sea, the damage 
severe enough to cripple it and later causing it to sink into the 
silent waves of the Pacific. 

All but a few passengers were evacuated from their cabins to the deck,
placed into the lifeboats as thunderous explosions continually hit the 
ship causing it to rock two and fro. No one had seen the young Harper 
thrown from the deck of the ship, clinging for her life on the side of 
a life raft that was blown free by the explosions. No one would see her 
pull herself into the lifeboat, or grab the collar of a life preserver 
containing Katherine Grace, the captain's youngest daughter into the 
craft. She had likewise found herself thrown from the deck of the ship 
to float in the inky cold Pacific waters. That had been four days ago. 

The Harper's journey had started a few days before that. Together with
Rijiin, her husband, they sat in the horse drawn carriage would take 
them down the streets of Denver to the limo company that would take 
them to the airport. Together from the airport, the Harper and Rijiin 
would both board a jet liner bound for Los Angeles and from there they 
would meet a medium sized cruise yacht chartered to take them and two 
hundred other people to Mexico on a spectacular honeymoon for two. 

As the young Harper lay unconscious in the raft, she was seeing images
of recent past, starting with her wedding day. It is a time of 
happiness for the young maiden, remembering the day like it was 
yesterday, staring at the gardens of the Tree Star building from one of 
the many corner offices and at the many guests who have gathered from 
near and far for their wedding. 

Inside the building, as Rijiin walked toward the Gazebo on the Tree Star
grounds,  the young Harper named Natil occupies one of the many corner 
offices inside the Tree Star building. As she waits for her day to 
start, her hand fasting to Rijiin, she paces the office back and forth 
like a caged animal. She is dressed in the long ruffled white wedding 
gown, her face made up and she wears her hair up in a neat bun. Natil 
is a young beautiful elf maiden but a very nervous bride to be. She 
held a wad of Kleenex ™ in hand, as she dried her tears and nervously 
wept every few minutes. Her gaze fell upon a mirror in the office and 
transfixed she stared at the radiant reflection of herself. The 
realization had hit her solidly that she was going to be wed today and 
never thought, centuries ago, that she would be with someone or find 
anyone in her travels she could love. 

“Oh by the Goddess, are you ready for this Mistress? Do you know what
you are doing?” 

The Harper had said it aloud as she stared at the mirror, and she
managed a confident nod to the reflection she peered at in the mirror.
