4e épisode de la saga Morning Light
4th episode of the Morning Light saga
I crawled my way out of the village and found my parents’ house empty. Pain ransacked my stomach while thirst dug a tunnel in my throat. A scare crossed my mind : what if they hadn’t left any food behind ? I fell to the floor, knees cut by stone and sand. Why did the Goddess save me ? I meant to cry but had no tears in my eyes. A soft voice came from the house. Dana’s voice. She approached, carrying my corn doll and the cover mama weaved me, the one she had always fancied.
– Why ?
– You failed as a martyr, you’re nothing. What was yours is mine now.
