She nodded, not trusting herself.

“Not even for this?”  His eyes swept to the Tower.  The bright beacon promised much.

She shook her head.

Gently holding her hand, he murmured, “Your People offered you up.”

Proud, she remembered.

He smiled.  “Come.  Our year awaits.”  His voice promised silks and sweets.

  1. Dear Silent Moccasins,

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers. You may find, as many of us have, that once you start this weekly activity it’s hard to stop.
    In your story, I have the feeling that your characters have entered the afterlife? Intriguing. I look forward to reading more from you.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
