In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Once Upon a Time.”
There was usual day at hospital where the healers visited sick people on in this case in Narnia, sick creatures. It was also an usual day for Healer Elia who personally visited Mrs. Beaver and her children.
“Look, who are so noisy in the morning,” said Healer Elia smiling while patting the children who couldn’t stop chattering no meaning words.
“Good morning, Healer Elia,” Mrs. Beaver greeted her happily.
Elia smiled. “Good morning to you too, young Mom,” she replied. “Your babies seem in good condition and I think you can go back home to the dam this afternoon,” she told the mother.
“Oh, that’s great!” Mr. Beaver exclaimed. He suddenly appeared out of nowhere. He gave Elia a bow to show his gratitude then turned toward his wife. “We have a special visitor here, my love.”
Mr. Beaver stepped aside to reveal King Edmund The Just standing there all this time.
Elia was in shock, hadn’t realize that The King was there. She bowed to him in hurry. “Your Masjesty, I’m sorry I don’t know,” said Elia felt shame.
King Edmund gave her his famous dazzling smile. “It’s okay, I know you are pretty occupied,” said King Edmund. He looked at her, worried. “Why did you look so pale?” asked him.
Elia blinked. She was feeling okay but yes, now she felt rather stuffy and ill, like she suddenly got headache.
“Healer Elia?” Edmund called her.
“I’m sorry, Your Majesty. I think I don’t feel well,” Elia bade Edmund farewell and rushed to the healer room. Leaving The King confused.
She sat at her chair and suddenly, everything went black.
And when she woke up later, on one of Healer’s bed (the one that usually used for the healers who stayed for night visit), she found a brownies and a cup of tea. Magically kept to warm. With a note.
“Don’t be sick anymore – King Edmund. The Just“
Elia buried her face on her hand.
That was definitely embarrassing
