“Hello, Mountain child,” said a pleasant voice.
Golden spun to see who had addressed her with such a strange salutation and gasped in surprise.
A woman stood there. She had a square face, a flawless complexion, blue eyes accented with gold flecks, a perfect nose, classic lips, and a friendly smile. Her long, sunfloweryellow hair dangled to the middle of her back and was embellished with a copper brooch. She wore a royal-blue silk tunic and gold upper-arm cuffs. Her forest-green hooded linen cloak was trimmed with a light-green silk border, embroidered with sea-foam-coloured trinity knots, and secured by a woven yellow belt. A silver trinity-knot brooch secured the cloak to her breast. Her light-tan kneehigh boots were made from the softest calf leather.
She wore a stunning Celtic ring on her right hand, made of gold intertwined trinity knots, inset with a pink tourmaline gemstone, and bordered on each side by diamonds set in silver.
This must be the Green Lady or the Fairy of Kindness the villagers were talking about last week, Golden thought.
Excerpt from Dagger of Urachadh: Attack from the Underworld, p. 75-76.
Three and a half years ago my co-worker Rachel Johnson joined the Department of Surgery and her presence just brightened my work environment. I never knew sharing an office with someone could have such a positive impact on my life.
Rachel is an amazing and talented individual. She has her nursing degree and then she went on to take training to be a Nurse Practitioner. Just recently, Rachel finished her Masters in Nursing. Her educational pursuits and her drive to better herself are inspiring.
Rachel is always positive and uplifting. She never says an unkind word about anyone. Every day I come into to work anticipating what she has to say. Her zest for life is infectious. Her passion to help others and make the world a better place is contagious. Her eagerness to embrace new ideas and ways of doing things is refreshing. Thank you Rachel for giving your “light” to the world. I am so grateful to have you as my colleague and friend.
