He had promised to love her for all eternity, promised to be faithful and true and she had unhesitatingly made the same vows to him. Valar was only a minor wizard when she first met him but after they fell in love she had allowed him to read the first book of Raoth, which enabled him to increase his powers and become her equal. She had kept her promises to him but before a century had passed, he had broken his and to avoid the repercussions that his unfaithfulness would bring, he had imprisoned her in the centre of the earth.
Entrapped in her fiery prison, the fire witch set about undoing the spell Valar had cast upon her. It was one of the most powerful spells in the first book of Roath but fortunately she had followed the advice of the witch's council and had only allowed him to read book one and as book two contained the more powerful magic, she had been able to free herself in less than a year.
Mounted in her chariot of fire drawn by bats selected from the deepest cavens of Sheol, Flamma's eyes glowed as she contemplated the infinite pleasure she would gain from her impending meeting with Valar.
I have also uploaded a portrait of Flamma the Fire Witch in order to show her features in more detail [link]

Our luggage and ticketing got very messed up BUT everything else was brilliant! Overall it was a wonderful time, where we learned so much about our once "enemy" and ourselves! It was so good for my little 9 year old daughter too. She learns so much about her world by traveling and I am so lucky I can give her that. I know I am.
A trip wouldn't be a trip if everything went smoothly and yes, you are very fortunate that you can educate your daughter by travelling with her to other countries. This is something neither of you can get out of a book or from watching TV. I am glad the both of you had a wonderful time
Hi Zee, the flames were by trial and error and the Moonchilde fractal I give credit to in the 'thank you' section worked beautifully. I used a few blending modes and overpainting with a fractal brush.......just luck and experimenting.
