Caring For The Ancient Ones

Caring For The Ancient Ones

Takashi's family had cared for the ancients for as long as anyone could remember. His duty was to ensure the land remained vibrant and full of life. Each morning, he would pack a simple lunch of tea, rice cakes, and bean curd and then walk to the shrine. He always greeted the ancients with a deep bow, and when lunch came, he shared his tea and rice as was the custom. Today, he felt an unease in the air around the shrine. A feeling of dread would best describe it. Word of Mörken and his Troth minions had reached the southern meadows months ago, but no one ever imagined they would come to the shrine. Takashi focused on his duties, but in the back of his head, he knew that everything was not right and that perhaps it was time to speak with the elders about matters. He would do it tomorrow after he discussed it with Shifu at dinner. He hoped his master would have a better understanding of these troubling matters.
