The Legend of the Morning Star

as narrated by Ches, priest of the Wind



Once, before the dragons killed the gods, there was a princess. Well, really, she might not have been a princess as we know them. She might have been a rich merchant's girl. But she was beautiful, and her family was wealthy enough that she didn't have to work in the fields, but could wear pretty dresses and walk about entirely at ease, just to amuse herself. Also, she had a lot of pride. She was beautiful, and she knew it. She was well-educated, and she knew that, too. She was strong-minded, and would never jump and scream if a mouse should happen to poke its nose out at her in a room, nor would she freeze in confusion if a young man became too forward – she'd use her sharp tongue to put him in his place!
