During one of their journeys to the North, Nour and the Merchant met a lady hunter who traveled with them along the way. She was a descendent of the Goddess of the forest and protected the animals from those who wanted to harm them. She travel on the back of a reindeer, carrying her bow and arrows on her shoulder. Her long wild hair was tied behind her neck and her long mantle brought life back to each flower and bush it touched on her way. She was beautiful, Nour thought, more beautiful than any women she’d ever seen. Maybe it was because she was a fighter, or maybe because she had a purpose.
“If you don’t hunt animals”, the Merchant asked “, what do you hunt?”.
“I hunt the stars, my friend. Every time an animal is killed by humans I hunt a star so that men can regret their actions and remember the day they will have to endure the eternal night.”
