I was told to sit down and wait for maudra urthee’s arrival. I was worried they were going to find out I’d been seeing a grottan gelfling, because if they did I would be Daeydoim dung. My clan worshiped death, as if it was some gift from thra itself. It was like as if, for their whole life the longed to die. I didn’t understand this obsession, as I spent most my time reading books and identifying new creatures. Sometimes I ran away with the other younglings to steal Urdrupe from the old shaman yuretsi, then we would eat them and pretend we had seen the future, when really we had seen nothing because Urdrupe was like a drug, if it wasn’t used right. Eventually Maudra urthee arrived, one hand on her cane, her other on her hip. She had a expression on her face that I could not identify, a mix of disgust and pity.
She sat down next to me and gestured to the guards surrounding the room to leave us be, and they did without complain. She sighed and looked at me.
“Oh Corai, why were you out of your home so light at night?” she asked. I didn’t answer.
She waited for an answer, but eventually realized she wasn’t getting one. She told me it was ok and I could tell her, but still I felt uncomfortable talking about argot, and if anybody even found out she existed I would be toast. I didn’t know what to do, so I ran right out the room. I darted past a group of sandmasters, they looked at me suspiciously but eventually went back to their weaving of sand skimmer saddles. I ran back up the endless rows of terraces, up and up until I got to my families small home, so small you could call it a shack. I ran round the back to the small window, jumped through it right into my room. Argot had said to meet tomorrow night, but I couldn’t wait that long. With Maudra urthee suspecting something I had to be quick. I packed the essentials: food, robes, some of mothers concoction’s, some daeydoim crystals for safekeeping. Once that was done, I placed all of my needs in a little pouch, wrapped around my waist. I could hear the shouts of sandmasters and guards outside getting closer, I wondered why though. I had only run away from the Maudra, unless they knew what I had been doing most nights for the past trine. I suddenly remembered seeing a shadow earlier that day when I was down in the caves. Could that have been one of the sandmasters? Hearing them getting closer was worrying, and I didn’t have time to say goodbye to my parents, so I left a quick note promising to return someday. Without a glance back a hopped back out the small window, spread my wings and flew upwards then glided down towards Maudra urthee’s chambers once more.
Once I was inside I darted through the main door, and ran towards the cave entrance. I kept running downwards, I chipped some pieces of my sandal, but it did not matter. Once I could see the light of the cave, I slowed down. I was finally leaving. After all those trine watching the sandmasters leave the huge gates, and hearing stories of the outside world from song tellers, I now could finally see it for myself.
But I came to a halt, when maudra urthee and two guards stood in my way. One of the guards tutting, the other completely silent with disgust. Maudra urthee looked at me and asked
“What have you been doing every night down here?”
They knew. They must know. I stared at her, I could feel tears in my eyes, but I tried holding it in. knowing if I let my emotions get the better of me, things would just get worse.
“Exploring” I lied, as the guards eyes widened. The other guard smirked.
“Is that so?” one of them asked. I nodded to him, and maudra urthee pointed behind me. I turned around to see my parents, and another guard stand behind me. My father waved the note in my face.
“She was going to run away with some…some dirty grottan.” Said the guard standing between my parents. My mother sighed and looked at me with sad eyes. I turned around to face maudra urthee.
Without thinking, I through mothers concoction onto the ground, and it created a large puff of smoke. When nobody was looking I darted through maudra urthee and her guards. The guards cursed, and my parents started shouting warnings at me. I was of age now, and had every right to leave. When I got to the cliff edge, I took one look backwards, to see the looks of horror on my parents faces. I spread my wings, nodded at them and let the large gust of thra’s breath carry me along.
“Traitor! Heretic!” screamed one of the guards, as maudra urthee pat him on the back. She told him something I couldn’t hear, as I was already to far away. I smiled at myself and thought, the adventure begins.
