Perenelle opened the notebook to a white page and draw a line on it, then transformed it into an arrow.
“Here is the present, here the past and here is your future. No matter what happened in the past, the future is only connected to it by the arrow. Have you ever seen an arrow fly?” she asked.
I didn’t understand where she wanted to go but I knew I should let her take me there.
“Yes”, I said.
“So you know the spirit of the archer carries every one of the arrow he is shouting”, she continued. I nodded still not really sure.
“The spirits of the people you met on your arrow are carrying it away with you, that’s why Sorina will always be with you. It doesn’t matter how close you are, it doesn’t matter if you can remember all the details clearly or if it’s blurry like a dream the spirit stronger attached to your fate never leave you. They stick to you and help you advance in life.” she said.
“But how could she help if I don’t remember”, I said.
“Because no matter how much you think you forget you never forget that much. It’s always here somewhere”, she said getting up and passing her old frail hand in my hair. “It’s just waiting to come back as soon as you will see her or will really need her. It’s not something you can have whenever you want, you need to deserve it, you need to advance on your arrow to make the spirit help you carry it.”
She walked out of the bedroom leaving me once again to my thoughts. I looked at the arrow wondering why Sorina’s spirit didn’t want me to see her. But I discovered the real meaning of Perenelle’s words sometimes later.
