In the darkness with you.

December 24th, 2011 · No Comments · The Tribe

The tribe has dispersed. I suppose I didn’t see the signs because I never cared one way or another. Senses heightened elsewhere led to distraction. I’ll settle in Orgrimmar for now. I won’t return to Sen’jin, nor the Undercity. Time for a fresh start. It wasn’t pertinent to involve myself in the inner workings of […]

I bid you farewell.

Jatkai left this morning. I thanked him profusely for having saved my life, and he reciprocated his thanks for my having nursed his concussion after the quake. After a few awkward pauses, I told him that perhaps he’d be better off not being in the path of whatever whirlwind it is that seems bent on […]

I can’t even begin to describe the horrors. Our world has been shattered, and so too, has my chance of a new life.

Blood ties.

My father and I have always been at odds. I am sure that he forever curses the day that I first uttered a word, for not long after that, I learned to vocalize my disobedience. Father wasn’t deliberately oppressive or sadistic in his approach to raising my sister and I. We weren’t beaten, nor malnourished. It […]

Rescued from death only to be tortured by my feelings? And here I thought I had spent the last decade cultivating a hard, hermetically sealed shell in which to place my heart! This place conjures up so many uncomfortable feelings. The ones I’d thought I’d buried long ago. I remember the ridicule, the derision, the […]

Brethren apparent.

Several days later, we arrive in Durotar. On the road from Northern Durotar, we came across a group. “Where are ya headin’?” “Sen’jin, sistah. ya be joinin’ us?” And so we walked together, setting out right after sunset. Night is falling, and yet we still walk. Eventually, we make it to the village. It looks […]

How soon is ‘now’?

June 4th, 2010 · No Comments · Finding genesis

We’ve all heard the whisperings. The news. The word on the street. Other trolls who pass by you now give a knowing and inquisitive look.“Will you join us?” “Are you coming?” A troll in Dalaran sticks out like a sore thumb, but there they are. And they speak with their skin and with their tusks. I […]

Traveled so far.

January 9th, 2010 · No Comments · Making ends meet

Life has been depressing these last few months. I found work creating potions in a Dalaran laboratory. Most of the time, the requests are simple. ‘I need something for my health’, or ‘I’ll take an order of Troll’s bloods, please’. It’s often formulaic grunt work that gets me into a conscious coma: ‘Work, work’ as […]
