The Fae Princess

Night had fallen across the land as the girl walked through the forests. The darkness had enraptured everything it touched leaving her in a scene of picturesque beauty. She was surrounded by plant-life; flowers blue, red and black, and trees that shaded her from the glare of the moon.
The moon itself, what little of it shined through, guided her path in the forest. She didn't need it of course. Her race, the Dark Fae, could see fairly well in the night. Some of the elders could even see through pitch-black.
She could feel the wildlife around her; the low growls, the hiss of something in the distance, the occasional glimpse of animal eyes in the darkness. At one point something even brushed up against her legs. It had had soft fur and a long tail. It had retreated before she caught a glimpse of it. It was all so frightening, yet beautiful and exhilarating.
She walked through the forest, barely making a sound. She was clad in a long black ceremonial robe that was embroidered with jewelry, perfect for the occasion mother had told her. A pendant fell from her neck. In the center was a black jewel, a keepsake of her house.
She eventually reached the top of a hill. In the far off distance she could see the Clearing. A green flame basked the area in light and she could see people already gathering.
The girl began to walk down the hill. Her steps eventually became strides and before she knew it she was running. The breeze through her black hair, the feel of the night on her skin, it was the best feeling in the world.
She eventually reached a small pool in the middle of the forest. She knelt by the water and dipped her hands in. The water was crystal clear and cool to the touch. She splashed some over her face, taking a moment to enjoy the feeling. She thoughtfully stared at her reflection in the water.
At five-and-ten years old, she was already very pretty. She had long, silky black hair that fell past her shoulders. She had the defining traits of all Dark Fae; pale skin with yellow eyes, almost like those of a cat. Her eyes however seemed more piercing than either of her sisters. Her mother had once said that her eyes were so powerful she could clearly convey any emotion through them.
The sound of footsteps drew her from her thoughts. She got up, bracing herself for some wild creature to come rampaging towards her.
Then, out of the trees, it came. A shadowy creature stepped out of the forest trees and began to charge at her. The girl stood there, petrified. Then she remembered all her sister and brother had taught her. She waited until the last second, and then quickly dodged the attack of the beast. She knew she could handle wildlife. She did a half circle around it and gave it a sharp shove. It creature fell into the pond, flailing madly. The girl prepared to run, but then the creature started laughing.
It was a feminine little sing-song laugh that echoed throughout the night. The girl, confused, watched the...
