“Seia , up. Its way past time for you to wake up.” With great difficulty she opened her eyes . She tried to get out of bed but her body just wouldn’t let her . She closed her eyes again telling herself ” Just a little while longer “.
Moments later a huge splash of water hit her and she sat up suddenly. “Mother ” she yelled, and there she was standing with an empty bucket and a grin on her face .
“It never fails ” she laughed . “Now get up and get ready your father has summoned the whole village to the square says he has important news . ”
“Well he and i have very different opinions about what is ‘important ‘ “said Seia .
“Well you’re gonna get it from him if you don’t get ready in time” her mother said .
“Yeah yeah “she said getting up reluctantly.
If there’s one thing Siea hated it was morning baths. The water that Raoul would bring in the morning would be ice cold . But she couldn’t avoid it she couldn’t go to the square without talking a bath cause that’s how she got the sleepiness out, but the cold water still scared her .
She got ready and ran down for breakfast.
As soon as she came down she realised that both her mother and raoul had left for the square .
She couldn’t find anything to eat so she poured herself a mug of milk . While she was drinking it she heard the sound of the drums ” I’m late! “she exclaimed. “Father’s gonna kill me “.

“Brothers ,Sisters ” he said. “A very strange incident has occurred which we would like to share with you “. He waved his hand towards someone who was sitting with the elders. A man got up and walked towards the stand . He was wearing a robe and a pair of pants but nothing inside the robe. She was sitting quite far away so she couldn’t see his face. ” This man” Tonzo began “was found by our border patrol at the outskirts of the village . He was found unconscious and has no memory of himself whatsoever”said Tonzo. ” Well that’s pretty strange for an uneventful village like ours” Seia thought. ” He waved at the man again and he took his robe off a moment later people in the front began to gossip amongst themselves . Seia was sitting at the back so she did not know what the big hue and cry was about .” For those of you who are sitting at the back and can’t see this man clearly ” Tonzo resumed ” On his chest there is the mark of a circular stone and three swords piercing it” after saying that he paused. Seia for some reason couldn’t remember what that mark stood for and then it hit her ” The mark of the Oracle
