The Hunt

blood between my fingers
the eyes of the prey, closing in death
the sisters moons taking the colors

Gie: Master, I don’t feel my legs anymore. Can we stop for a moment?

skekMal: No.

Gie: I really don’t feel my legs.

skekMal: Then stop *still goes on*

Gie: *shouting after him* But you are leaving me here?

skekMal: My legs are still fine.

Gie: But I just can’t stay alone!

skekMal: *stopping* You agreed on training. Either you stop and take care of yourself. Or you go with me and your legs with get used to it.

Gie: This is crazy.

skekMal: No. This is life.

Gie: *gathering strength* You knew I will go, hmm?

skekMal: No.

Gie: Then, you would really leave me here.

skekMal: Asking too many questions, gelfling.

Gie: …

skekMal: It’s hard living here. If you stay back and stop, you will be hunted. The only way is to always go forth.

Gie: Good. But you will carry me if I fall.

skekMal: Of course. If you fall.

Gie: *surprised* Really?

skekMal: Asking too many questions, remember?

Gie: *smiles lightly*

skekMal: We need to gather strength. Four more hours to our point of destiny.

Gie: What??? *resigned* Uh…

Gie: What is that *holds a piece of unknown meat in her hands* 

skekMal: A gelfling. 

Gie: What?? Hunter— 

skekMal: *rolling his eyes* Don’t be a childling, meat is a meat and it’s not a gelfling, so you can eat it. 

Gie: *getting angry* You really think I will try something that I don’t know what is? 

skekMal: Yes. And you WILL eat it. 

Gie: *just let the meat fall off her hands and land on the grass* 

skekMal: Heh. You still eat it and what a pity that now it’s all coated in mud 

Gie: How you force me to eat meat that falls on the ground, hmm? I just won’t. 

skekMal: You just don’t get anything to fill your stomach. And believe me, you WILL eat it and you will like it. 

Gie: You are—- 

skekMal: You can hunt your own prey. Then, I will be even proud of you. 

Gie: I just started my training! 

skekMal: *grinning awfully* That’s why you will eat that meat.
