Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream


^ Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C


Standing on the tips of his toes, feeling the strain in the muscles of his foot as they strained to hold his weight, Wilatari reached for the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream large bale of cotton from the second shelf of the Baggisa storage barn. Barely touching the edge of the bale with the ends of his fingers he groped to try Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream and feel for the chords binding the bale so that he could pull the cotton down. He managed to slip his index finger through one of the lowest bindings and began Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream to tug the string to wiggle his other fingers in and then yank the bale with all his might as his toes had begun to hurt. The particular bale he struggled with refused Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream to budge because of its tight packing next to its contemporaries. Yanking and pulling, Wilatari soon found himself hanging by his hands.

Panting, he glared up at the bale and growled Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream in his throat. Using one of the vertical posts of the shelves as a support, he used the new leverage to try to pull out instead of down, and the difference of angle proved affective Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. Despite the cutting of the cord into his palm, under the first knuckle, which burned and tingled, he continued his gyrations of his shoulders as though he stood on the back Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream of a wild colt, trying to tame the beast.

This proved almost too successful as, all at once, the bale of cotton burst free along with all of the bales Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream in the line. From his position, Wilatari could not balance himself in time, so he suddenly found himself suspended in mid air for an instant before falling about four feet onto his back. He felt Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the wind leave his lungs as he hit the hard dirt ground, and in the brief moment that he regained breath, the bales hitting his chest knocked what little had returned out Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream of him. Under the weight of several bales of cotton and wool, Wilatari blacked out.

He did not know how long he remained unconscious, but he suspected he had not slept Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream long because the afternoon sun still warmed his right leg, the only part of him not covered by hay, cotton, and wool. As he moved the cotton bales from off his chest and Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream arms he felt a stinging, lancing pain in his chest at the sternum. The fall must have bruised his lungs and hurt his muscles in his chest. It hurt Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream to breath, but he still managed to roll out of the bales and slowly, painfully climb to his feet.

Sighing, he looked at the mess on the floor and wondered how much trouble he would Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream be in when Mrs. Baggisa saw the disordered barn. She and Antinara had gone to spend the afternoon with Senu and Meera to discuss the next sheering of Senu’s flock. They Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream had trusted him to bring five bales of cotton to the house while they were gone, and he had now betrayed that trust.

With trepidation, he began to sort the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream bales, thankful none of them broke apart when they fell from the loft. After he set aside the five bales he needed to bring to the house, he looked at the other five bales Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream and then at the loft, wondering how he should put them back up there. Peering around for a plan, he noticed a large spindle of rope, maybe one hundred Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream feet about as thick as two index fingers side by side, sitting in the corner of the barn. Above him, he noticed one of the rafters of the ceiling sat near the ledge of the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream loft.

Immediately, he walked over to the rope and stuffed a good length of it through his belt as he moved to the wooden pillars that supported the loft Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. Like a small monkey he shimmied up the pole, keeping his eye on the rafter’s beam. Lifting himself onto the ledge of the loft from which he had only recently tried to remove Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the bales, Wilatari began to pull the rope out of his belt and looped it into a makeshift lasso to toss over the rafter. Flicking his wrist, he threw the heavier Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream end of the rope over the beam and then fed more slack into it until he could reach the thrown tip again. Once he again held the rope he began to climb down.

But Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, upon turning around to shimmy down the pole, he glanced at the back wall of the shelf, a place he had not looked at when he climbed up. He halted his climb Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream and looked closer. The bales of cotton had blocked the back from viewers outside, and the depth of the shelf мейд looking up here impossible from someone on the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream ground. In front of him, firmly pushed against the back wall, sat nine heavy chests about as large as one of the bales of cotton, eight with locks shut.

Not at all strong when resisting Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream curiosity, Wilatari walked over to the one unlocked chest and opened the lid. This took some effort. He could not tell if the wood constructing the semicircle lid weighed a Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream great deal or if the metal bands holding it together weighed more than he had estimated, but the lifting felt twice as difficult as it should, much like the trap doors in the watchtower Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. The innards of the chest startled him.

If he had not heard from Senu about the properties of Blue Steel, Wilatari would still have been able to guess that the contents Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream of the chest were magical. On closer inspection, he discovered even the metal binding the chests and the locks reflected the blue hue. The trinkets in the chest ranged from Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream wands as long as his arm to small spheres about the size of his fingernail. Every piece carried similar etchings to those he had seen on the black box, runes.

Picking up a wand Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream about the length of his forearm with a green crystal embedded into the head, Wilatari inspected the runes and marveled that this, ancient though it might be, came nowhere near to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the antiquity of the black box. These runes he could almost read, as they resembled many of the common Koinan runes that his mother drilled into him during his nightly reading lessons Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. He recognized one of the glyphs as an ancient way of writing “winter.” Under that, he saw a glyph he did not know and then beneath that, one that resembled the word “storm Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream,” but in a manner so far removed that he could not say exactly what мейд him think of storms.

The green gem entranced him in the intricacy of the cut that seemed to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream spiral inward from all sides and gave the illusion of movement, making him think the crystal pulsed like a heartbeat. The actual haft of the wand felt warm to the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream touch, but not uncomfortably so. Waving it about he noticed that the green crystal left an afterimage wherever it last remained if he moved the wand very fast and deliberately. Curious at this, he Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream waved the wand in patterns, giggling in glee at the shapes he managed to create with the pale green lines that the wand left behind, a star, a teardrop, a man Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream’s face. After a moment, the image would vanish like words written on sand after a wave comes and washes away the script.

As he began to write the rune Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream for his name he thought of an idea. When the word “Wilatari” vanished, Wilatari scrawled out one of the runes on the haft. He decided to start with winter, and slowly, but with deliberately quick Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream slashes wrote the glyph. What happened shocked him.

The moment he finished writing the rune, it began to spin and turn in on itself, creating a sphere that changed Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream from green to dark blue, to light blue to a color akin to clear crystal. When the rune had completed its transformation a slowly spinning crystalline sphere about the size of two fists rested no Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream more than a few inches above the head of the staff, precariously balanced so that it seemed it might fall at any moment. It reminded Wilatari of balancing a Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream saucer on a stick, but unlike a saucer that might tip off, the crystal sphere never fell, as though connected to the green crystal head of the staff by an invisible string Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. He tried moving the staff to see how the orb would react, but though it wobbled this way and that in accordance with its invisible string it never fell or ceased its incessant spin. On Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream a whim, Wilatari flicked the staff’s head towards the floor as he might the lure of a fishing rod in the river.

What happened next galvanized him.

The crystal sphere leapt Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream off the head of the wand and increased the speed of its rotations. As it traveled from the staff to the floor of the barn, the sphere began to grow in Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream size so that it resembled a pumpkin in girth. Protruding from the spear jutted out crystalline spike, and when the orb hit the ground it tore into the soft dirt like a garden Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream hoe, spitting up flakes of dirt as it buried itself. These flakes, however, did not retain their dull brown hues but rather shone white in the light coming in from Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the barn door.

Once the sphere had buried itself up to half its size in the floor it shattered and left a patch of the ground bright white with steam rising up. Visibly Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream shaken, Wilatari leaned over the lip of the shelf and looked down at the white patch, marveling that the whiteness seemed to breath as his breath in cold weather. ‘The ground is frozen Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream,’ he thought, realization sinking in. ‘The sphere was a ball of ice!’ The haft still felt comfortably warm in his right хэнд and the rest of the staff appeared unchanged from Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream having released such a strange spell.

Excited to try another, Wilatari decided to draw the rune just under the one that read “winter.” He did not know what it said, but Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream he figured he would simply try each down the list to see what would happen. However, as he lifted the wand to draw the first stroke, he heard a rough voice shout Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream just behind his ear, “Don’t do it!”

The shock of hearing the voice that sounded like sandpaper drawn over wood forced him to drop the wand to the ground as he Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream spun to face whom had addressed him. Seeing the man who stood so close to him frightened Wilatari to such a degree that he fell down, hitting his tailbone hard on the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream wood of the shelf. Wincing and gritting his teeth, he looked up at the man. Immediately Wilatari could tell that he was somehow related to Antinara. He wore a light purple Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream robe and a cream-colored apron-like vestment that was cinched at the waist with a golden belt. His had braided his hair in so many different locations that his head resembled a field Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream of overgrown grass. His smooth face and angular jaw gave evidence that this man demanded nothing short of absolute respect and total obedience He, however, lacked eyes. Or rather, in lieu of Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream eyes, two bright purple beacons glowed like twin torches. Not only this, but the rest of his body glowed a light blue as though his clothes, hair, and skin all Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream gave off a phosphorescent light in the darker cavity of the shelf. But even that had not been the reason Wilatari fell down. Wilatari could see right through the man, clothes and Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream all.

“Who are you?” Wilatari whispered, his eyes as large as saucers. ‘^ This is definitely a ghost!’

The phantasm bent forward, his vacuous glowing eyes seeming to drink Wilatari in. “You, who disturb that which Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream does not belong to you, dare to ask me who I am? It is I who should as who you are, you impetuous whelp.”

Wilatari gulped, swallowing hard before stuttering Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, “I- I- I am Wilatari, sir.”

“Wilatari,” the voice asked cordially, before snapping, “Wilatari who?”

“M-Miburo at your service,” Wilatari replied, bowing his head politely as his father had taught him to do Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream when addressing his elders.

The phantom drew back, placing a хэнд on his chin as though to stroke a beard that was not there. “Well,” it admitted. “I suppose that would make Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream sense. Not just anyone can wield a wand. Who taught you to do that, you sniveling little worm?”

“My mother,” Wilatari answered, getting over his fear quickly as he grew annoyed Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream at the continuous stream of insults that this ghost seemed content to level at him. “She taught me to read and write.”

“Don’t get sassy with me, whelp,” the glowing Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream man spat suddenly, glowering as best a man with no eyes can glower while animatedly shaking his index finger in Wilatari’s face. “If you are so literate, what does the rune mean Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream? The one you were about to draw.”

Wilatari looked down, his cheeks crimsoning scarlet as he answered truthfully, “I don’t know.”

“Don’t know?” the man asked with a Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream wry grin while stepping back and raising both his arms in the air as though shocked. “I am sorry. I can’t hear that well. Did you just say you didn’t know? What Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream in all the hells are you doing casting spells if you don’t know what they mean? Let me ask you this. Do you know the name of the rune you Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream cast a moment ago?”

“Winter,” he mumbled in reply, feeling both embarrassed and angry at the same time. He rubbed his thumbs across the first knuckles of his index fingers in agitation.

The ghost Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream leaned even closer this time until its face almost touched Wilatari’s before screaming, “Wrong! In the new spelling, it might look like winter, but it still misses the proper strokes Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream to complete the word ‘winter,’ even by today’s standards. Wrong, all wrong, you ignorant, foolish, incomprehensibly stupid little boy. This rune means ‘ice.’ What you cast was an ice spell Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. What you were about to cast was a fire spell, which would have probably burned this whole barn down with you in it, you stupid, moronic, imbecilic embryo from a creature too stupid to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream do anything but reproduce.”

“Shut up!” Wilatari shouted. “Don’t talk about my mother that way.”

“Oh,” the ghost recoiled, as though truly repentant at hurting Wilatari’s feelings, placing both Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream hands over its mouth and raising its eyebrows in repentance. “I am sorry. I did not realize your great and wonderful mother was going to save your worthless burnt hide from Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the fire. Maybe I should have let you kill yourself.”

“Who are you?” Wilatari repeated, exasperated at this angry spirit who would not leave him alone. He stood up, uncomfortable with the advantage Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream this ghost had on him by being able to look down on him.

“Baggisa,” the ghost answered, sweeping a short bow and a curt nod of the head. “My name Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream is Baggisa.”

Pursing his lips and clenching his fists, Wilatari growled. “I could tell that, but who are you? Are you related to Antinara?”

“I should hope so, you sniveling dog,” he grated, cocking his Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream head to the side arrogantly as though looking at a piece of garbage. “I am her father.”

“What?” Wilatari gasped. Antinara did not have a father. From as long as Wilatari had Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream known her, she had always lived alone with her mother. The two subsided very well from others, sewing and providing for the needs of the village in terms of textiles Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream and general medicines.

“Are you deaf, or do you have a thick layer of mucus blocking your membranes? Yes, you oaf, I am her father. She is the fruit of my loins, prot Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dreamégé, my heir, my child. Has it sunk in yet or are you still unable to comprehend Koinan speech?” Baggisa rattle out, his fists on his hips akimbo as he leaned forward to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream crow.

Wilatari began to seethe under his collar and he could tell that his gray eyes must have smoldered. “I did not know she had a father is all Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream,” he griped, refusing to look the incorporeal elf in the eyes.

This did not deter him as the ghost of Baggisa stepped right up and bent to look into Wilatari’s angry eyes Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. “Did not know she had a father? What kind of social ingrate are you, sucking on the teat of your village without any thought? Were you never taught the birds and the bees Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream? Did you think Antinara sprang fully formed from her mother’s brow, some immaculate virgin birth maybe? Antinara is a pure little girl, but not that pure.”

Wilatari could not place the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream kindly Mrs. Baggisa as a relation to this crude and rude elf. Further, the almost angelic qualities of Antinara seemed an exact opposite to his angry tirades. Whatever the case, he began Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream to grow tired of this mental abuse. “Why are you yelling at me?”

The ghost laughed derisively. “You’re first real question is ‘Why am I yelling at you?’” he asked in Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream scorn, stepping back and clicking his tongue in disgust as though Wilatari were a source of amusement that the ghost had paid too much to see. “Not, why are you transparent? Not Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, what am I doing here? Not how I got here? Just, why am I yelling at you?

“Well, I will answer your question. I am yelling at you because you Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream offend me. You trespass my property, handle my things, and then almost destroy my barn. A much smaller problem that angers me is that you almost killed yourself, which I cannot allow,” Baggisa stated Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, his jaw twitching. “You are a valuable person for many reasons. Watching you die like that would offend my sensibilities. Firstly I suppose because you do possess some intelligence in Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream that vacuous nebulous space you call a brain. Not many people have the ability to write a rune with a wand. And secondly, of course, not everyone has the blood necessary to cast the spells Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. Possessing both at your age is a rarity. Under normal conditions I would suggest sending you to Fotyr to train. But then, I am no longer the First Mage Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream.

“Not that you asked, but I am going to tell you a story. Do try to keep up. I know from my wife that you children know why you are here in Himitsua. All of Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream your parents are formerly important people forced to flee, which I know but I will repeat because you are clearly stupid. As often is the case, we fled here for Antinara’s Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream sake. You were barely four years old when we came to the village so I doubt you remember much of it. And if you did, you certainly would not remember seeing Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream me.

“I was the first Mage of Fotyr. A mage, you must understand, though I doubt you are able, is a person with magic in his blood. This comes from the wizards Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. Wizards are all progeny of female wizards. A male wizard without a female wizard will not produce a wizard child. This does not mean, however, that the child does not possess Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the blood of his father. This blood will allow him to cast magic as a mage. As generations continue this blood begins to diminish in that bloodline, but can sometimes be Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream strengthened when two mages combine to have a child. Antinara is such a one.

“When a wizard is born, he or she comes into the world with a crystal orb attached to their right хэнд Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. This crystal changes color based on the spiritual alignment of that wizard’s heart. When the wizard reaches adolescence the orb begins to grow, a most painful experience until Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream it rips itself from the хэнд and falls to the ground.

“Then, the wizard must attach this orb to a special wood, making his or her staff. This is the source of Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream their magical power, and it is also their life force. So long as the orb still exists that wizard’s soul still remains and his or her magic can be used, even after that Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream wizard dies. You must understand, twit, that a wizard cannot be separated from his staff for a prolonged period or he will die. As you can see, it is complicated to be born Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream a wizard. While you may have control of the dark arts you are always at risk. Your powers are also your curse.

“For we mages, life is a little different Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. We can use the staffs of dead wizards. Depending on how well we synchronize with the dead wizard’s spiritual alignment we can use even more powerful spells and more of them. Casting Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream a spell consumes energy. A wizard can cast a great many spells based on his own constitution and spiritual energy. This transfers into his staff, but a mage with a lot of Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream energy, physical and spiritual, can only do so much on his own. He must synchronize with the dead wizard in order to truly use the staff.

“Magic, my foolish waste of space, is Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream not a personal belonging, so if you have a little blood you can cast basic spells as you did earlier, but to cast the real spells, the ones that that Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream wizard knew, you must become one with him, and that can only be done through constant use and prolonged association with the staff. Should you be related to that wizard then Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the connectivity increases.”

Wilatari pondered a moment, holding his chin in his right хэнд and his right elbow in his left palm before asking, “If you aren’t attuned, then how could I have Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream cast a spell?”

“You aren’t listening, you creature with faulty appendages that merely look like ears,” Baggisa sighed in irritation before continuing with large gesticulations that Wilatari assumed were for his benefit Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. “Magic is not anyone’s personal possession. Magic simply is. That you can use it at all means you have some trace amounts of magic in your blood. Somewhere, far Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream back you are related to a wizard. All wizard magic comes from one of the Three Spirits, Rubleterivore”

“What?” Wilatari whispered, tilting his head to the side. “I have no idea what Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream you are talking about.”

“You are more ignorant than a stone, and twice as dense,” Baggisa spat in contempt. “There are three deities in Lalidor. Every religion worships them all to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream some degree. They are the Three Spirits: Rubleterivore, the eldest; Lalicoon, the middle; and Tiadahl, the youngest. Magic comes from Lalidor itself, but is filtered through them.”

“How do you know that Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream?” Wilatari interjected.

“Don’t interrupt!” Baggisa snapped in a screech. “Shut up and listen. The Three Spirits are brothers, and they are always at war, Rubleterivore and Lalicoon against Tiadahl. Whenever you hear Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream of a Dark War, it is referring to these Spirits’ war in which they take the population of Lalidor and battle one another. Though the histories are obscure, it seems that in order to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream fight Tiadahl’s armies, Rubleterivore gave all of his magics to his soldiers. These were the first wizards, and this is the reason why they are called Rublevorian Wizards. So Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the magic is never the property of the wizard. It is a gift.”

Wilatari wanted to ask a question, but the withering gaze Baggisa leveled at him convinced him not to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream open his mouth again.

“Now the degree to which each wizard developed his gift is variegated and often dramatic. Here is an example. Let’s say the wand you just used was an Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream average wizard, neither very weak nor exceptionally powerful. A wizard who never developed his gifts, his crystal would probably have blown a cone of icy air at the ground, layering it with frost Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. The wizard might have been able to do better, but a mage would not be able to get much more than that out of the wand until he synchronized with the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream wizard. Now, the crystal of a fully developed wizard probably would have sent a sphere the size of dog into the ground from this distance, leaving a crater several meters around, freezing Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the whole barn, likely to the point of shattering in its brittle state. The wizard of that crystal probably could have done much, much more. Do you begin to get the idea Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, fool?”

He did not wait for an answer. “Mages borrow the power of the wizard’s crystal, which itself borrows the magic from the Rubleterivore. A mage is a surrogate wizard, seeking Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream to tune himself to a particular staff. Now, let us say a mage trains for many years and becomes proficient with a low level crystal. Let us say he finds a Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream much stronger crystal and wants to use it instead. All of the years he spent with the former crystal will mean nothing. He will be starting over in his synching process. The Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream majority of wands that the mages of Fotyr have are lower to middle class in power. Only a few high level crystals have ever come to us, and very rarely has a mage Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream lived long enough to synchronize with those wizards. With training, a middle class mage can produce better results than an untrained high-level crystal.

“You have shown that you possess some measure of inherent Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream skill and I would not have minded giving you a middle class wand to sync with. Your blood is very pure. The wand that you produced middle class results with Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream is actually a low level crystal. However, your blood pales in comparison to my own, which is still not as pure as Antinara’s.”

“Antinara?” Wilatari asked, intrigued. He had heard about Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the mages of Fotyr and always wondered if perhaps Antinara could have become one. Pirek had told them about Fotyr mages. Previously, Wilatari had only known of Fotyr as a place of Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream learning, housing the largest library in the world.

“Yes,” Baggisa sighed, and had he possessed eyes, Wilatari would have sworn they beamed with pride. “My little Antinara is the product of two pureblooded families Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. I was First Mage because of my purity of blood and because I actually had my ancestor’s staff. In only fifteen years, I completely synchronized with my wand. My Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream wife Nozaire also came from a great family with that family’s wand as well.

“The two of us held all of the power in our country, carrying magics as powerful Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream as real wizards. But, unlike you, you sack of mush for brains, I wanted to learn. I had no use for power, and neither did Nozaire. I never took the throne. I stayed Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream back.

“Then, the best thing that ever happened to me came into my life, Antinara. My beautiful black haired daughter with lavender eyes bewitched me from the first time I saw her Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. I knew a lot, my little creature collecting fungus on the brain, but even I could not have guessed that Antinara would inherit both of our powers. The little child possessed as much power Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream in her blood from birth as a wizard. She only lacked her own crystal.

“When she was four, I gave her my staff and let her play with it Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, just to see what sort of raw talent she might have. She surprised me. Waving the wand haphazardly in her tiny hands, she sealed me in one of the orbs you see in that chest Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream over there. She did not know what she did, and no mage short of my own power could possibly unravel the spell she cast, not even Nozaire.”

“In my Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream arrogance, my one and only fault, fool,” Baggisa lamented, though without any real repentance in his haughty voice. “I did this test in front of many high level mages of the country. They Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream all saw what had happened. And even as I am now I could see the greed in their eyes. Someone like Antinara would only need a few years to completely synchronize Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream with even a high level wand. She would easily become the most powerful mage in Lalidor within the next four years, and though I am no expert on wizards, I imagine she would be Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream more than a match for some of their more powerful representatives.”

Wilatari could not speak. Right now. Right now, at the age of eight, Antinara could be the most powerful mage in Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream Lalidor. For all intents and purposes, she would be a wizard. But, she had not known this when Pirek talked to them. She had never even heard of mages and Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream wizards.

“Nozaire and I discussed what should be done, deciding to consult the great Dabiv, Emperor of the East. We knew through our own studies that the Emperor of the East knew of Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream a place for political refugees. We had to leave. If any of them got their hands on my little girl they would use her for world conquest.

“We were not the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream first mages to come to Himitsua, but we were definitely the most powerful, brining with us all of our treasures from Fotyr, as you can see here. Of course, Nozaire used her Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream magic to wipe Antinara’s memory of Fotyr. She thinks she was born there, but then she and her mother came here. She does not know why and she has not met me. For now Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, I think that should remain so, you fool among idiots. Nozaire is not allowed to use her wand. She buried that just as a warrior would bury his sword. However Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, many times our treasures have been used for the good of the village, but never obtrusively. Those firestones used at your festivals are mine.”

“Wait,” Wilatari shouted, holding up his hands up. “You Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream mean you have lived here for four years, never seeing your daughter, or anything else?”

“Yes,” Baggisa nodded. “No magic, no books, nothing. I cannot go very far from the metal orb Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream either, so I stay here.”

“Why isn’t the orb in the house?” Wilatari asked, “Why can’t you see your family?”

“Nozaire comes here everyday to talk to me,” Baggisa Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream smiled. “If Antinara saw me she would have too many questions, which cannot be answered. When she is older she will meet me and learn everything. I am sure she has seen me several Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream times while I looked down at her from up here, but she is too much of a coward to come up and investigate. And I doubt she would be as stupid Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream as you to start playing with priceless artifacts.”

“Sorry,” Wilatari mumbled, scratching the back of his head as he bowed his shoulders. “So why are you telling me all of this? Why Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream me and not Antinara?”

“You stumbled on something you should not have by casting a spell. If I had not stopped you, you would have certainly killed yourself. Now that you know Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, I need you to make sure you never do something foolish like this again. You must keep Antinara away from these chests. She knows they are here, but she does not know they Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream are magic. Most of the artifacts used by the village are stored at Alderman Nepo’s house.”

“I see,” Wilatari nodded.

“I am not so sure you do,” Baggisa Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream shook his head. “Antinara is a natural mage. Completely by accident she could destroy the entire village if she ever played with these as you did. Besides that, it is the nature of Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream this village to be inconspicuous. Magic of her level would be traced and bring people here like maggots to a corpse. She can never touch anything that might invoke a spell.”

“Mm,” Wilatari Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream nodded again. “I think I understand a little better. I won’t let her up here, but why is this chest unlocked?”

“The lids are very heavy, boy,” Baggisa explained. “But Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the locks themselves are even heavier. It would take a very strong man to turn the key to unhinge the mechanism, and then it would have to be a person with Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream no magic in his veins. Once locked, neither Antinara nor Nozaire would ever be able to open them. This chest is kept unlocked because it has my artifact in it. My sphere is kept Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream safe here, hidden among the others.”

“Ok,” Wilatari nodded a third time, fully acclimated to his role of student. Insults or no, he enjoyed learning. “I won’t let her up Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream here.” He moved to go down to the bales.

“Where are you going, you waste of space?” Baggisa snapped.

“I have to get those bales of cotton back up here, sir,” Wilatari calmly Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream replied, accustomed now to the raw tongue of the sealed Baggisa.

“Oh,” he replied, somewhat sadly. “Oh, I see.”

“You can still yell at me while I work,” Wilatari offered Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream, as he began to crawl down the support beam of the loft to the ground that had already thawed, but still felt very hard and cold through his soft boots.

“Like I Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream need you here to yell at stupidity,” Baggisa ranted, looking down at Wilatari from the loft.

As Wilatari began to tie the first bale of cotton to the rope, he endured a continuous Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream stream of criticisms and insults that continued well into the process of lifting the bale and positioning it on the shelf. For each bale, Wilatari found himself being called a new Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream term for fool or idiot or imbecile. He had no idea what most of the terms meant after a while because Baggisa’s scope of diction far superceded his own. What had Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream so frightened him at first and angered him, now мейд Wilatari want to laugh. ‘I wonder if he really thinks I am that stupid?’ he thought. ‘He certainly is funny!’

Once he had repositioned the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream bales of cotton on the shelf, Wilatari began to take the other bales to the Baggisa porch, taking more trips than necessary, just so he could talk and listen to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the crazy sealed Baggisa. Antinara and Mrs. Baggisa had not returned yet, something for which he was grateful. When each of the five bales had been delivered, Wilatari dejectedly walked back to the barn Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream to say goodbye to Baggisa. This strange afternoon drew to a close and he did not really want to end it.

Even if he seemed a little arrogant in conveying it, Baggisa Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream seemed to possess more knowledge than even Pirek the ancient Gataki. Vocabulary and historical facts seemed to ooze from Baggisa like sap from a tree and each question he Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream asked, despite the barrage of insults he received for asking, produced a thorough answer that Wilatari could never have even considered. In the course of one afternoon, Wilatari learned the basics of the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream Three Spirits, Mages, Wizards, and a slue of other things, interesting and insipid, pragmatic and ineffectual.

As he opened the door to the barn for the last time, he looked down at the Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream hole his ice spell had created and began to kick dirt to fill it. Not seeing Baggisa, he called out, “Baggisa? Where are you?”

Appearing instantly on the top shelf like Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream a lit candle taper, he looked down and asked, “What, you’re still here? I thought you finished.”

Wilatari bowed his head while saying, “My parents always told me to say goodbye to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream my elders.”

“Fine, goodbye, whatever,” Baggisa harrumphed, waving a хэнд as if to knock Wilatari’s offering of respect out of the way. “Go away.”

“I hope I can come back, sir Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream,” Wilatari demurely asked.

“What, slovenly wretch?” Baggisa growled. “Are you courting me, get out of here.”

“No,” Wilatari said, scratching the back of his head and shaking his open palm in front of Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream him. “Nothing like that! It’s just, well, I liked hearing you. I learned a lot.”

“And if the space between your ears was not filled with fluff you might Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream have learned more, farm boy,” Baggisa admonished harshly before continuing in a softer voice. “But it was nice to talk with someone other than Nozaire for a change. You can come talk to Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream mw with her permission in the future. Just make sure Antinara is not with you.”

“I wish I understood better why you don’t meet with her yourself,” Wilatari stated while shaking his Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream head dejectedly. He could not imagine never meeting with both of his parents. “I think she would understand.”

“Tell me something, little boy,” Baggisa said after hanging his head in silence Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream for a moment. “I understand that you and Antinara have a mutual friend, a new girl who came to the village with a famous swordsman.”

“Yes, Rail. She came with Senu.”

“Yes Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream,” Baggisa nodded. “Nozaire has told me about her. In her veins runs the blood of a great warrior and she is slowly walking towards her dreams. She is the daughter of a Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream great man. Antinara is every bit as talented. If she saw me like this she would have so many questions. She would want to make it right somehow, fix her Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream mistake of so long ago. I have already explained why she cannot ever use magic. Do you think she would accept that?”

Before Wilatari could respond, Baggisa continued. “And what about you? What if Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream you found out something about your past, something you felt you had to change, but could not? What would you do? But beyond that, using magic is like a drug, farm boy Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream. The experience of shifting the energies of the universe as those same energies course through your body is intoxicating. Antinara is a natural mage, but she must never learn of it, both for Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream your sake and for hers. You have no idea what people would come for her. You have no idea what people would come to this peaceful village because of Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream the flux of energy she would unwittingly unleash.

“Those same people who killed the entire Miburo clan to a man would only be so happy to come here and finish the job Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream.”

Wilatari felt his heart lurch in his chest. His breathing came in sporadic gulps as he said with wide eyes, “Tell me!”

Not a day had gone by that he had not thirsted to know Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream what had happened to his father. He wanted to know why they came to Himitsua and what had happened to Tirup to rob her of her intelligence. His father refused Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream to speak of it and his mother, though tears came to her eyes whenever he brought it up, likewise would reveal nothing of their shared past. Tirup, of course, never spoke and Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream Pirek would not tell what he said Miburo must say himself.

This marked the first time in nearly two months that he had learned anything about his clan. ‘Genocide,’ he thought. ‘Why would they Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream want to kill us? And why all of us?’

“So they never told you,” Baggisa laughed sardonically in a way far crueler than when he insulted Wilatari earlier. “I thought it odd Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream that you ran about with such a carefree attitude. You have no idea then? Nothing? If you knew then you would understand why this village must stay secret.”

“Yes,” Wilatari Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream shouted, licking his lips in excited anticipation. “Then I will understand!”

Baggisa shook his head. “But if Mousotaro Miburo does not want his son to know then he must have his reasons. I will Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream respect his decision even if you come to hate me for it.”

“What’s the matter?” Wilatari shouted, hoping to injure the voluminous pride of Baggisa. “Are you afraid of my father Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream?”

“Yes,” Baggisa nodded, seriously. “Even if he does suffer a limp in his left leg, that is a man I fear. There are many reasons why people in the village Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream respect your father, boy. You would do well not to provoke me again. See me again when you are less of a child.”

Angered, Wilatari stormed out of the barn and ran to his Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream house to cut wood. He suddenly needed to release a lot of pent up energy, and though he cut wood until his hands’ well-worn calluses ripped open, staining the haft Part 4 Baggisa Anixi 6, 3025 Back to T.O.C - The Impossibility of a Dream of the wood crimson, his anger did not diminish, nor did his passionate desire to learn what had happened.
