5. Eva's Backstory

"So when are you leaving?" A voice startled Steve from behind. He turned. There, standing outside of his door, was Eva. The poor baker was covered in burns worse than her usual baking burns, her clothes were charred and falling apart and she had dark bags under her eyes. 

"Eva, what are you doing here?" he asked.

"Sorry. The door was open, so I let myself in. I just wanted to ask you when you were leaving so I could give you something." 

Steve looked back at his inventory he was packing. "I don't have a lot of room for anything else, Eva," he said.

"Oh, it's nothing like that, really. I... well, it's not going to fit into your inventory," she replied.

Steve looked puzzled. "What is it?"

"Information."

"On...?"

"Herobrine." she went pale.

"Ok, whatcha got for me?"

"As you might possibly remember, I have lived in this village since I was a child myself. I don't remember a time when this village wasn't a part of my entire being. By now, my lifeline is mostly tied to this village; if it dies, I will, too. So on that, I say again; it is so important you save us, Steve. So because of that I am willing to give up my deepest secret."

Steve was silent. He didn't know what to say.

"I have lived through several attacks on my village, and each one was by a different set of horrible creatures, three armies." she took a shaky breath before continuing. "The first was a set of... they looked like you, only green, and they moved slowly and groaned a lot, and they were quite hostile. They were accompanied by sets of living bones... bones that moved together and shot arrows at us, and they had... like, pets, almost, nasty, hairy-legged beasts."

"Zombies and skeletons and spiders," murmured Steve. "The earliest of hostile mobs."=

"The second army was a bit more intricate, with blobs of green, clicking things, wild dogs trained to kill, two types of the pet sort of thing, one smaller than the other, and huge, loud-screeching things in the sky, the sound that haunts us to this day. They all had torches and were burning our town... after decades of work of rebuilding, we were barely holding on."

"Ghasts, slime, cave spiders, all with... wait, did you say torches? If Herobrine had torches, that means he had a crafting table... but no, that's... if he had one, he wouldn't be manipulating the mobs. He must have just picked them up from villagers and player's dwellings."

"And that last army, the ones who flew around, appearing and disappearing so rapidly it was mind-boggling, it was... horrible," she shuddered. "But it brought you to us, and you helped us, you saved us."

Steve was silent for another second. "Thank you, Eva, but I already knew all of that," he said tenderly, not wanting to hurt the old woman's feelings.

"Oh, that's not the secret, that's just what I remembered. The secret... it's not as easy to swallow.''

''Yes?" 

"The attacks... they are all my fault. I... fell in love with someone... from his team, Herobrine's team. I... I was a young girl at the time, giddy and love-struck. I was wandering outside of town, searching  for my lost sheep- my father was a shepherd, and one of his sheep got lost. Eager for an adventure like the ones the heroes in the stories my papa read to us, I was lead astray from the village. Before you came there were no walls around the village, and it was so much smaller. I got lost. So for days I wandered the world, going farther and farther from the village. I knew I was wandering, and I was very reckless. I knew enough, however, to avoid camps that look like they housed monsters. But one day, I wandered right into one. The young man who found me... well, he was surely too old for a young girl like myself, but, ooh, was he a looker!" The old woman's eyes grew faint and dreamy. "He was one of your kind, but not quite. He was dressed in a purple suit with gold tassels, and he had this face- like a god's, youthful yet wise, strong but caring... he was so gorgeous, just the thought of him makes my stomach flip-flop!"

"Eva! You're married!" 

She rolled her eyes. For an old girl, she had some attitude. "You're joking, right? I didn't choose Jack to marry me, neither did he. Our parents arranged it. And with arranged marriages, I can only imagine rebellion would come too. And besides, I didn't know Jack until we married, years after this. Anyway, I was wandering right into the camp. This one soldier sees me and he grabs me by my arm. He pulled me to this cave, where I hide until he comes back." her eyes are glazed over, but she continues. "When he returned for me, I was so scared, but his voice... it calmed me. He said I had nothing to worry about, and he was going to try to get me home again. I agreed, though I wasn't too hot on the idea, I didn't want to disappoint him. So I led him to our village... and he made a note of where it was. He promised to visit me again, and I was overjoyed. And he did visit me- in one week, when his army attacked us. Because I had given him the exact location of a good village to burn. He visited my house during the attack. He tried to apologize, but my father wasn't hearing it. He... he stabbed him with a pickaxe several times, and he died. Watching my father kill my true love... it broke something inside me. I died a little that day. I never fully recovered, and now my village is suffering because of my false hope in someone who was too weak to ever love me the way I loved him... he was too weak to love me enough to not succumb to his other master, and he died because of it. And even today I wish I had just stayed with him, disguised myself as a monster and hid during battles, so I could see him... but I didn't. I was... foolish."

And with that, she got up abruptly and left the house.
