Part 18
Meanwhile Aldo and Sakava grieved the loss of another parent. They hurt even more than they were hurting before. And they grew into strong, broken, radiant, tortured, kind young adults. And they continued serving the Uzras, for that was what they had to do.

One day Aldo and Sakava were on a voyage with Thrash and his household. They were far out at sea, with land not being anywhere in sight. They were full of rage and pain, and felt as if they were a part of the sea itself, with all its unpr...

And so the days turned into years and Navee and Amnee got older. Mamon had to hold their tongue, hold their tongue, and hold their tongue in front of the Uzras. And Mamon had to go along with the Uzras and their plans and their demands and their cruelty.

And Mamon couldn’t take it anymore. They had had enough.

The Uzras were having a grand party at the mansion of Varli, a Yemar who had betrayed his side and was loyal to and privileged by the Uzras. There, they were drinking and feasting a...

And she was even friends with Navee, who was about the same age as her. Naia and Mamon had great hopes for this child. Though they knew that they shouldn’t get their hopes up. They saw what had happened to Thrash.

Now Sakava was the personal servant of Thrash’s wife Tovera. And Tovera was very radiantly beautiful. This was because she never had to get herself dirty and sweaty with work.

Tovera was beautiful because she had the time and the resources to take a hot bath every day. And she could sit around having her long hair b...

Now Mamon did many things for these children who were now under their care. The children who mourned their parents each and every day. The children who Mamon had to give some sort of family to. Some sort of solace.

One day Sakava was serving the Uzras their morning meal. And the Uzras were eating light, soft, sweet things made of honey and fruit. Sakava was looking at the food with her wide, dark eyes, not saying anything as if she was a hollowed-out ghost.

Hali looked at Sakava looking a...

Thrash now was a young teenager, and in his heart was only pride and wrath and desire for more and more power. He did not take after his older brothers at all.

Thrash was travelling through his father’s kingdom with Mamon trailing behind him. The two came to the humble room of one Yemar couple, who had two young children named Aldo and Sakava. ...
