Tari sounded nervous, but she didn’t blame him. If word of this got out, it would undermine the Elders, even the very Gods. Water came from the Speaker, not from nature.

  1. Isn’t this a week late? Hey! I’m gonna do that too.
    I grit my teeth when I read thingts like this. This one’s fiction, but too much like current reality. Still, thought-provoking and well done. 🙂
