A Final Flame
Book by: Rainbow Drop
In a blooming village around the mountains....the was a small faint wail. A child was crying. Cold and lonely...Not single soul to keep her warm. She was eyed with disdain while people whispered and back away. The small wail continued as dark mist hung in the air. Her small cries turned into whimpers and croak as the child voice was now hoarse. Her eyes slowly started to drift and close still releasing small whimpers hoping for some warmth.
"She is finally going to die..thank the lords..we don't need a disgrace...a mutant here. She will curse the village."
The women crowded with smile. "Pitiful child..let's put an early end to your misery." The women pulled a small dagger and was about to stab the child when she started to cough. The coughing came more severe and turned into gurgles as she hacked up blood. With on last click she fell with a wet thud, her eyes rolled up her head. A small gasp escaped the villagers.
"We m-must k-kill her!!! It is a she devil!!" The other women screamed.
"No stop you saw what happened before...we would be foolish enough to try again."
They eyes the child with horror and utter fury as her face now ghostly pale and her breathing slowed. Somewhere in the distance a women shrieked.
"How can you kill an innocent child!!" With her screams the air stilled. It felt as though it had agreed. The black mist that no one could see circled the girl protectively. The villagers backed away with small murmurs horrified to see what would happen to her next. But nothing happened. The women picked up the child and cradled and the tensed muscled the baby held relaxed. She started to snore away finally feeling the small bit of warmth. The last bit of warmth that she would soon forget even existed.
Far our in the distance a loud roar was heard. It held sadness and pain, yet it also shed light and hope. The mysterious child with unknown origins and red hair had started to write her own legacy from the moment she was born.
