The Tale of Clandestine Sisters III: The Gatekeeper



*****

Please read Part I and Part II before reading this, dearest..

*****

Nobody really knows when the third sister arrived at the Raro Train Station but the two other sisters of Clandestine.

The folklore only tells three true things about her: first, she comes from an unknown land called Mystère; second, she travels using a big train all by herself; third, she is the gatekeeper who own the key to every door in the world. The others are only rumors. Some says she might be a magician; some swears to their heart that they once met her in the forbidden wood; and even some believes that she is the masked bandit who always get away with all the treasures of the world and replace them with the fake ones, while some others argue that she is the hero who saves all the lost treasure. Some people are whispering to each other that beneath that mask, she might be that cunning little lady counselor of the king.

But, nobody really knows.

The Tale of Clandestine Sisters II: A Girl and Her Companion

*****

Read This First

*****




*****

Meanwhile, from a joyful land called Alegria, another sister of the Clandestine is on her way to the Raro train station of Reverie. She rides a tin toy-train that magically grew big enough to take her to another dimension. She travels in the middle of white blinding light. “It’s a good thing to always have a sunglass on”, she always says.

So you see, Alegria is a toyland. Every kind of toy imaginable live there happily. Alegria itself means ‘happiness’. The second sister of the Clandestine is always accompanied by her best friend Muñeca. Muñeca might look just like another stuffed dog, but every Clandestine sister knows that Muñeca is the bravest and strongest guardian they ever had. In a dangerous situation, Muñeca can grow big and strong enough to protect the sisters. Growing big rapidly is a common ability of every citizen in Alegria.

The second sister is the only human-being who lives in Alegria. Other human-beings are simply unable to grow big and small as they wish, they usually forced by nature to grow. The second sister is just different. Unlike the first sister who always surrounded by a bit of melancholy; she is sparkly, lighthearted, and simply can’t stop playing.

As she arrived at Raro train station, she found the first sister waiting. Now it’s time to meet the third sister. She must have been here all the time, in front of the gate to Secreto Land. Well, the third sister is the gatekeeper, you see..

But again, that is the story for later..

The Tale of Clandestine Sisters I: The Delicate Scholar



*****

The day is young. Morning is creeping all over the town of Reverie. Gently. The sweet peppermint wind arouse along with the shy morning sun. Children stay under their blanket on the comfortable bed. Mothers enjoy the stillness of their tea. The town is covered with a strange quietness.

Meanwhile, in the tranquility of Raro train station, a girl rush in~ insisting to be allowed to enter. “But I’m one of the Clandestine sisters”, she said, showing a piece of paper to the station staff who soon allows her to enter the empty station. Now he understands the eerie feeling of the morning: it’s the morning when the Clandestine sisters meet. An old tale says that Raro Train Station is where the gate to the Secreto Land located. He already spend half of his lifetime as a station staff but he never knows where. He thought it was only a myth but he just met the first sister, didn’t he?

The girl in the green dress is the first sister to arrive. She lives in the castle in the sky, far north of the town of Reverie. She is a delicate scholar who always surrounded by an invisible cloud of melancholy. She soon takes a seat on the nearest bench, waiting for the second sister to arrive.. very soon.

But, that is the story for later..
