THE STREETS OF NOTTINGHAM
by AUCKLY SIMWINGA
Eons ago, a betrayal rocked the heavens. Grief overwhelmed the mother of creation, driving her to madness when the god-king banished Caelemon to the underworld. Leading to the sundering of the world which would come to be known as the Breaking. Only a tiny village, located at the edge of the world survived the breaking, and for hundreds of years it remained forgotten. The villagers now pray to the mother seeking her mercy and protection, but sheís as cold and merciless as the black stone statue which she was carved out of. Her supplicants havenít realized it yet, but they are about to. In the worst possible way.
Iíve always been an outsider. I donít know why, but I feel I donít belong here. Iíve loved her since I was a snotty child. Marika, with the blue eyes and white hair. She was my life, my destiny, and my heart was breaking into many tiny pieces because her father would never allow us to be together. I longed for the day when it wouldnít have to be this way. That day never came.
