"I will have revenge." the stranger mumbled. "And the horror will stay fresh from here to Carville." "We must be patient." said another. "The time will come and soon." "Yes. We will wait and grow stronger until we will overcome." the stranger replied. "Hodsik will pay."
Tegras woke up in the strange room. She couldn't remember where she was. Then the memories hit her like a slap in the face. The fire burning, the screaming, the horror in her fathers eyes. Lucky for her a man she had remembered from her childhood had taken her in. She had been lost in the flames when he grabbed her from behind before the great marble column of the God Enij had fell on her. She knew not of his name for when he introduced himself he had said to call him Kafaw.
Kafaw had come in now. "Ah, you awoke." he said. "Let us go and begin our busy day." He pranced out of the room obviously excited for what the day held. "Today we will go to the council meeting, than the field to harvest and finally we will go to the citizens' ball." No wonder he was so excited the ball only happens every harvest. Tegras thought. "Oh and we must pick up your gown." announced Kafaw interrupting her thoughts. No, not a gown! At least I won't have to where the old tight one from last year. Tegras knew she should be grateful, for she was a lucky girl. But she knew in her hurt she would always want to be free in the wild and go home to her old house free of worries. But that would never happen again.
Her old house was destroyed from the rapid fire that had begun from a single strike of lightning. It had spread to the marble temple where she and her father were taking shelter. The magic fire had started to burn through the temple. She was separated from her father in the panic and he became stuck, wedged between the statue and the altar. "Go Tegras! Run!" With tears in her eyes she ran as fast as she could. There was another crack of lightning and the marble pillar fell. Tegras was like a deer in headlights, stuck in her thoughts. That was when Kafaw grabbed her saving her from death. Her father, stuck beside the statue knew there was no hope and with horror she watched the pillar crush him and the altar.
But that was over now. Beside Tegras had work to do. She set of with Kafaw to the council meeting. After all Kafaw was an important man in the village.
