New story continued…
A delightful screech came from the path leading back to West-Flo’s village proper. Evardyne appeared from the brushes running.
“Sakira, c…can you see it?! Can you hear it?!”
Evardyne was flush with excitement. The pigment of her skin glowed and sparked like that of her eyes, alive in the bath of spectrum. Sakira rushed to meet her girl-lad friend.
“Yes! What…what is happening?”, she laughed
“I know not. But its glorious is it not?”, Evardyne’s words flew out faster than her breath and she stopped to catch it. “The village meets at Umgrah’s now. The gathering will take some time. Everyone runnin’ around like kittles they are! I had to find you…OH!”, Evardyne’s eyes widened, “Sakira your eyes…they ARE two colors! Ha ha ha…colors! Did we…ach, Sakira, how do we know?”
“I know not!”, Sakira giggled, “Yes, a’sudden I am able to define your hair…black, shiny, long and…beautiful! O, Eva, you are so beautiful!”
“Are we dreaming? Or in some spell thinks you?”, Evardyne grasped her hands, “Mayhap the tinder-tale is true? Frakenland has found a King?”
Sakira thought back to her tinder years. A tinder-tale about a King who would bring an end to the Darkcloud, that had smothered sound and sent all the colors to rest in a crown. This was why all they perceived were a verigation of whites, greys and black; without luster and dull; that finished each day in the soot of darkness.
“Who could it be? One of us? A strange-ling?”, Sakira asked.
“I know not.” Evardyne looked around as if she expected the King to come as if bidden.
“Oh my! The wash!”, Sakira ran to the river, “I was rinsing…”, she turned, “Eva…did…did you sing? I was there”, she pointed to the inlet where her clothing sat on the shimmering bank of a banquet of water now sparkling and dancing in prismatic liquid life.
“…and then I was singing…or stopped…oh, I must gather the wash!”, her thoughts broken out loud and unfinished. She began to wring the water from the cloth.
“Hurry, help me Eva, and we will go to Umgrah’s a’once!”
Evardyne bent to help, as they both cast their vision and bent their ears into the very earth around them; keeping them in conversations never before seen or heard.
“We must go”, Sakira broke the enlistment of senses, “The Circle of Fire fades quickly.”
