Here is a short sample from the book:
Of all creation, an important conversation takes place between two superior sentient beings. They look into the palm of a hand at what can only be described as a revelation.
“We must stop this thing from happening.”
“We’re not allowed, our authority to interfere is restricted.”
“But they can, if we give them the ability.”
“What if it doesn’t work… it didn’t before?”
“It has to, there’s no other way. They are good.”
“Yes good, but will they have the courage and perseverance to bear it? They won’t understand.”
“They won’t need to. I have faith that they will do what’s right.”
“Is it fair to use them as pawns?”
“I believe it is… after all, it’s their world.”
Vance smiled and winked as he walked past Marissa and I standing by her and Taegan’s small house. I continued to stare at him, ignoring Marissa’s grumbled tone.
“We should have said we wanted to go to the wedding. You know since we stayed here we’ll be digging potatoes the whole time,” Marissa complained as she reached for a basket, handing it to me.
“Yeah, I know, I just didn’t feel like being gone for days, besides Vance wanted to help Johan.”
I nodded toward the large fire and framework some of the men had built to hang and dry meat for winter. Three reindeer carcasses lay on the ground, needing cleaned and sectioned.
“We’re going to need it.”
Marissa paused, looking up at the sky. “We still have weeks, it wouldn’t have mattered if we went too.”
I looked down at the painful cracks in my hands and at the embedded dirt around my nails. My hands could have used the time to heal.
“Next time,” I answered, grabbing another basket.
