Kalar the Apprentice, № 05

Hands beneath him. Pulling him. He opened his eyes. The suns above burned white hot. A hawk circled between them.

Kalar closed his eyes.

The sound of his feet dragged along the ground. A jingle of something.

His Father’s voice. “One day you will really see it.”

The chop chop chop of the axe into the tree. Thunder as it fell.

His Father. “Do not turn around. Go!”

He opened his eyes again. The hawk was gone. Glare of the white suns against the blue sky.

Kalar closed his eyes once more.
