Chapter 9: Ruins
The appearance of something unusual on the horizon was the singular thing that broke the depressed Alf, Pacite from his stupor.
Hygurd, look, on the horizon, something that is neither forest nor mountain! He said, becoming animated for the first time in days.
Im glad youre speaking again, what is this that you point to? I asked, looking about the distance, but the sun was in my eyes and I could not see the specks interrupting the perfect line of the horizon.
Another legend that I didnt believe
They told us we were the perfection of humanity, that we were destined to rule over the imperfect humans. To bring order to chaos, to bring peace from blood and death. He said, looking down from the horizon line.
What are you talking about? I asked curiously also looking down from the horizon, while continuing our march.
Oh, it was nothing, just an old story our people shared with each other.
