I reach out to the stars and draw in my power. I weave a spell like a fog, and send it in to Avalon. The Sisterhood will all likely be asleep anyway, but my enchantment guarantees they will sleep deeply, and no whisper of the Sight will awaken them from their dreamless slumber. ANYA: MERLIN'S WOMAN
Darkness seeps up from the ground. In the last orange light, a great snowy owl lands on the balustrade near me. “Hoo-hoot,” she says. Hoot yourself, I think, miserably. She looks deeply into my eyes, blinking golden eyes slowly. And it as if I am tipped off the rim of the world into a dream. ANYA: HEALER OF CAMELOT Evening Falls - Mystery & Moonlight

Lady Morgaine looks regal in her Roman chair. The armrests have brass lion heads that glint in the firelight. Mabena told me that chair belonged to her father, Duke Gorlois. He used it like a king does a throne when he meted out justice in far-away Tintagel Castle. ANYA: HEALER OF CAMELOT
"There is no peace on this earth because woman is not respected. If man is born of a woman, he must respect her. If a tree is separated from its roots, how can it live?

I send all my power across the land and through Merlin. He unsheathes the Chalice and sends it up into the air. I weave a glowing veiled golden lady clad in flowing robes, bearing the sacred vessel before her. The Lady and the Chalice sail above the assembled Knights, Court-hangers-on, King Arthur and Queen Guinevere, and the priests in the great hall. The golden woman says nothing, does nothing, except hold the Chalice up for a long pause. ANYA: MERLIN'S WOMAN
Eventually, we climb the staircase that leads to the royal quarters. We go to Queen Guenevere's room filled with rich tapestries that depict gardens, animals and tales of love. Many pillows and chairs clutter the room. There are several women there, and they all stare at me as if a large hairy bug has entered. ANYA: HEALER OF CAMELOT
A little old woman whose face is dyed with symbols in blue woad meets us at the shore. She has cloths for us, and our clothes. Teeth chattering, Merlin bows to her before accepting the cloth to wipe down with. “This woman is a Pict—a fierce wild people who were the first to live in these lands. By her dyed face, she is a priestess. Her it was I saw last night.” I note the old woman has a lifeglow of a priestess—a deep violet. ANYA: MERLIN'S WOMAN
