Grasping the Sky

Humans are destined to die someday, to be inanimate and lifeless where we have no experience whatsoever with these type of topics. Before any of these, what would we like to do? Simply wait our days of departing? Or choose to fully enjoy our life? Humans are born with natural talents that helps and sometimes guarantee survival based on their usefulness. However, this tale is about those who do not have them.


17. "Weak" Self

"Ha! Look! There is that useless immigrants!" said one of the kids. "Lets use them as projectile target," said another. "They don't have magic resistance, it will kill them, but who cares if one or two of them dies out?" the largest one of the group suggested. "If only I had a strength to fight off them..." I always complained. I was complained because I was in the bottom of this society. Just because of the fact that we didn't have anything special, we were considered useless, though we were the ones who have higher knowledge compared to these people. "Dagar, the days of knowledge and wisdom are over, its the world of personal ability nowadays," told my childhood friend Lina. "Stand up, nothing is going to change just because you complain!" said Kale, another childhood friend. These people were also in same situation as me, but they think positive for some reason. Its because of our families working together that we were able to survive through the winter. We promised one another that we would survive through this world together. However, Kale was prisoner because he was considered as heretic to the ruler of this society, Perta, and sentenced to only have minimum of minimum for at least five years. Lina attempted to escape the walls but she only crossed ten foot away from the boundary. Her legs were permanently damaged and the doctors refused to help her. It came to situation where I have to also participate in labor work. However, the opportunity to escape came when the siren rang, which indicated that there was a invader. It was rare opportunity where guards were concentrated to one area. I could have left myself but I had promised Lina and Kale that we would do it together. I defeated few guards with my construction tools only to find Kale near death. It was impossible for me carry two people, although their weights were extremely light, because of my current stamina, but I couldn't abandon them. The guards managed to find me sooner than I thought. One of my legs were pierced with chain and the pain was unavoidably grave. I thought I was going to be at minimum spend half of my lifetime in the jail, but one mysterious figure and extremely large crow smashed the chain and blew out the guards just from the flapping of the wings. "Ha~, even this place isn't good place to leave..." he began to let out few words.
