Chapter 3 

Ralphon

“Chief”shouted Heth running towards the chiefs tent with a scroll in hand. Only the elders and the chief were in the tent .”What is it  Heth?” he shouted .

“No Chief ” he paused for a moment to catch his breath. “I have just received news from our spy”. the whole tent fell silent. 

“What is it ?” said Ralphon. Only the elders of the village, the chief and Heth knew about the spy. But only Ralphon knew  the spy’s identity. 

Heth took the scroll and held it over the fire  that was outside the tent and the message began to appear.  ” I have said this before and I  will say it again I have   

never seen an amazing method as this to code messages.” 

Ralphon paid no attention to that comment .” So what does it say?”

“An unidentified man has been found at border of our village and the village of the Alts” said Heth.   

” Interesting ” said Ralphon. ” It gets better” said Heth.” “Apparently this man has no memory of himself whatsoever.  He can’t even remember his own name.” 

This got Ralphon thinking , he had never known that someone could actually loose his memory. 

Heth continued ” It also says here that his chest bears the mark of the mythical oracle”.

“The Oracle?”said Ralphon ” You’re right, it is interesting.”

“Are you sure you can trust this ‘spy’ of yours ?”said Hauberk. Hauberk was the eldest and was considered to be the wisest of the three elders. 

“I trust my spy more than I trust any of you” said Ralphon sternly and scowled at Hauberk. 

“It also says that all this was announced at the square”said Heth.

“Hah”said Julo who was the second eldest among the three. “Then the information is not really secret is it then?”. 

“Secret or not, it is information , and whoever this man is Tonzo must be really clueless regarding this matter that he announced it to the public”. 

“So what do we do now Chief ? ” asked Heth.

“We wait , we wait till Tonzo asks us for help” said Ralphon with a small grin on his face.  

Lorne who was the youngest of the elders asked him ” How can you be so sure that he would ask you for help” 

Ralphon replied with a smile on his face “I just know , he’s my student after all” .

Chapter 2 

​Lanno

“This is gonna take a while” Lanno thought. ” What if he’s a spy?” Hauberk shouted. “He can’t be a spy, He has the mark of the Oracle you fool ” Tonzo shouted back. After the meeting in the square a lot of people had come to the chieftains tent to share their opinions about what needs to be done . Not that any of these ‘opinions’ of theirs helped. They were probably just excited that something was actually happening in this village. The Oracle was present too , he didn’t seem very happy though, everyone kept looking at him like he was a strange creature . He sat alone, they were too afraid to sit next to him. 

Leor sat silently ,thinking , Lanno always considered him to be the wisest among the three of them. Tonzo would probably disagree. 

Lanno’s wife Kat and daughter Seia were in the tent among the crowd as well . Seia was sitting alone isolated from the other kids , She was never the mingling type. She was like her father that way. Her mother Kat on the other hand was as social as any one  could ever be . Whenever there was a meeting at the sqaure she would make it a point to meet every single person present there .

Lanno himself didn’t know what to do. He thought the the Oracle was just a legend . No one had seen the Oracle for a thousand years . Suddenly Leor stood up “Everyone get out of the tent ” he shouted. “Me and the other chieftains must confer”.

There was a lot of grumbling and shouting but finally everyone left. Only the chieftains and the Oracle remained. 

Leor sat down and called Tonzo and Lanno towards him . 

“I think we should consult them” he said . 

” Them?” Tonzo said surprised. ” You know the village won’t approve of that “. 

“Well , we are the ones who take the decisions , that’s the reason why we were chosen to be the chieftains of this village,  because they trust that our decisions would be the right decisions “Leor said . He looked at  Lanno and nodded . Lanno nodded back . “Okay I guess we have no choice ” Tonzo said. The Oracle had a bewildered look on his face . ” Who are you talking about ?”he asked.   “The Wisers”Tonzo replied . ” We have a history ” .

Chapter 1 

​Seia

“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 “. She quickly gulped down the last of the milk and ran out of the house . Fortunately for her the square was close to her house. As soon as she reached there  the whole village had already gathered and the meeting had begun .  As usual all the 3 chiefs her father Chief Lanno, Chief Tonzo and  Chief Leor were sitting on the stand .Chief Tonzo who was sitting in the middle got up to speak. 

“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

Prologue

“He’s waking up”, “Quick call the chief”. Slowly as I began to sit up I felt people’s eyes staring at me with a bewildered look . They sat surrounding me.  A moment later they began to move , like they were making way for someone. Then I saw him it didn’t take me long to figure out who he was.

He was tall, lean reasonably built. His hair was of a peculiar colour, It was red but not the colour red heads usually have it was red like wine. His moustache also had a tinge of red in it .

“Hail chief Leor” they shouted . He looked at me examined me from head to toe.

He to looked at my chest, thats when I realised I didn’t have a anything  on.I didn’t realise what he was starting at till I looked at it myself. There it was,a circular stone at the centre with three swords piercing it .

“Who are you ?Why have you come here?” he asked. I opened my mouth to answer. ”I’m…” .

I couldn’t remember.
