The Legend of Divine Mystics - Chapter 2.1
As I walk cheerfully on the rough path, I kept on thinking about my friend’s upcoming wedding.
The excitement I had buried earlier in the week suddenly rose to the fore. After all, I had an important role in the upcoming festivities.
I am going to make an amazing cake! It was the sort of thing my friends would never be able to forget. To top things off, a huge celebratory party would be held tonight, and the whole village was invited.
The light penetrated through the network of leaves that illuminated the entrance to the forest. And, with it, came the bustling sounds of the village.
Taking a deep breath, I mentally prepared myself for the work that awaited me.
“Good morning Anuja!” said the seamstress.
“Good morning, Madam Bush,” I replied with a wave, whilst making my way past her.
We called her that because of her bushy clothes, or as she put it, the ‘fluffy attire’ that was known to wear.
They were too extravagant for everyday life, but no one could argue about her fashion sense, for it was the best in the entire village.
Next was the vendor.
“Hello Anuja, how is the preparation for the wedding going on?”
“It’s going on fine, Mr. Peas. I was just heading to the bakery to prepare the wedding cake.” And just as I said, I moved to the bakery, with a bounce in each step.
Then there was a man named after our local library.
“Hello Mr. Liberia, I was gonna visit you today after finishing my work. I think it’s about time to return the book I took last week.”
“Haha! Good morning, you bookworm! I must say you are indeed the most intelligent and unusual girl in this village of illiterates- er, I mean, metaphorically speaking…”
And here was his perfunctory amendment, “Y-you know every improvement takes time and at least the people of this village are open-minded…”
He was always like this; careless with his commentary and quick to apologize. But I wasn’t the type to get offended on behalf of others.
“So which book are you gonna give me to take home? Are there any new books available?” I asked, rather enthusiastically.
“I didn’t mean to pour cold water on your hopes, but this week’s shipment is late. But you can always read the old ones again.”
“Hmmm, well, you are right. I did want to read the ‘Three Female Musketeers’ one more time.”
“That’s just what I expected you to say! Do you have any idea how many times you’ve read that particular book?”
“Hehe. I’ve only read it about… fifteen times.”
“Hmmm, sure… just fifteen times eh? Well, aren’t you getting late for something?”
Sorry for the late update guys.Due to some reasons I couldn’t update.
But from now I will update on every Wednesday and Saturday!
