Restless Yearning by SilEnigmaArts Restless Yearning by SilEnigmaArts
~...Lady Jessika couldn't sleep. The day had been uncomfortably hot and energy sapping but by late afternoon heavy ominous clouds had been gathering on the horizon and by nightfall she could hear the distant thunder rolling in over the ocean.
She had gone to bed hoping that soon a cool breeze would give respite from the long hot day but as she lay in her bed, sleep would not come. She was restless but not from the heat. For so long now she had been yearning for another time, another place. To travel to other lands and meet new people. She was twenty-one now and as much as she loved her parents and her home, she felt the hunger to be free, to discover and experience things in her life that she had read about in her study books. Books she would often lose herself in as she grew up, dreaming she was the person in those stories.

And as she stood in the cooling breeze of the summer storm as it washed over the ocean, she decided that tomorrow she would ask her parents permission, to trust her and allow her and Ginny, her trusted companion since childhood, twelve years her senior and childhood friend, to embark on that journey. A journey that was to be the adventure of her lifetime, it was the only way she could soothe her Restless Yearning...~

I hope you all like "Restless Yearning"

Very beautiful picture. Would you mind if I use this in a video I am making?

SilEnigmaArts Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes I WOULD mind you using it in your video. You haven't even fav'd it and have only commented on it in here now in the hope of using it.
So the answer is an emphatic NO.
