This week, the Daily Post challenges us to write a post that goes against the conventional wisdom — to reinterpret something, to tell the world about an unconventional view, or to help see an old story in a new light.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away . . .
Scene: a vibrant planet, on one of the beautifully mountainous rocky outcrop islands dotting a pristine and mighty endless blue ocean.
A young woman climbs a rough-hewn stone stairway. She arrives at the top, where she finds primitive stone structures and, standing some forty feet away from her, a robed man standing with his back to her.
She stares for a seemingly endless moment until finally he turns to face her, and pulls his hood back to reveal his face.
He is older; wizened and bearded. Their eyes connect.
The young woman reaches into her pack and withdraws a long-lost item of great value, which had once belonged to the man’s father. She holds it out to him: a tribute
Nodding, the man begins to speak in low, gravelly tones.
“Do they suspect?”
The girls lowers her head in cold reverence.
“No . . , my master.”
