Description from Kitty Chicky Cat: She is pale as the moon so bright and with lips soft as cherry petals and red as their fruit’s fresh blood, hair black as night above and a heart full of fallen love. This creature, vision of beauty in form and feature, who stands in wait at the garden’s gate, will beckon you in out of the cold with hospitality from an age of old. The perfect hostess; gentle as a dove, with the willow’s grace, welcoming as a warm embrace. Yet she is mournful as the wind that ever caresses her dwelling place and cold as the stars that light the eyes of her pretty face. When you enter her origami garden be careful what you take from that place for it may be the last mistake you ever make. Browse among the lifeless flowers, enjoy the folded beauty for many hours, but do not seek safe harbor among those ancient arbors or pluck a pretty lotus for your love. For generous though she is she will not stand to see another brake the faith with her trust by such an infidelity in that place of beauty and grace. And if you tarry there past the eleventh hour, when the clock’s hands meet as lovers o so sweet, the curse shall release and reveal her as a beast. She shall be exposed as what she is, a spirit trapped there gruesome and cold unable ever to grow old or fly away like a dove, doomed for she sadly misplaced her love. She will hold you within her prison’s pretty trellised borders, smooth you out with fingers graceful and ordered, then fold and fold and fold you cleanly, crease crisply, fold again neatly until she holds a lovely little lily delicately in her palm. Then she will plant you in the ground of that blighted space never by your love to be found, singing sadly as she waits, longing to hear of her lover’s fate or once more to look upon his face. And from that fateful day, there you will forever stay as a pretty piece of folded paper in a lost soul’s bouquet, in her origami garden.
