PEACE, AT LONG LAST
“Take me back to where Tooraag found me, when I was a young boy,” I asked Rogagh, my adoptive brother, one evening. Awaytha the sun was setting in the distant, pale violet sky.
“There is nothing but pain for you there, Jonathon. It’s a twelve-day journey...you are an old man...enjoy your days like Tooraag before us.”
My bones creaked as I stood up to throw a shawl around my shoulders; the air was much cooler now than when I first arrived here, more than fifty years ago. “I need to know...why did it happen? Why did I come here?”
“Tooraag considered it a blessing, brother. You should as well. You have had a full life among us...you are one of us more than you have ever been a human.”
