My dreams had whispered to me all my life, but lately they were shouting— shouting something urgent that I couldn’t discern.
I pushed aside the mist of sleep, shaken by my latest dream. My fingers fumbled for a quill and inkwell on the desk beside my bed. By the time I smoothed the paper and scribbled the first words, images were fading like morning frost on a windowpane. Remember. Hand trembling, I coaxed a mental picture from the cloud in my mind. My handwriting quavered as I penned the words. Crown. Silver. Ruby. Thin circlet. Shimmering. What could it mean?
