*Day 15*

 A lonely figure stood high upon one of the many observation hills that were dotted around the village, many were close by, as this one was not far from the village center. It was a vantage point that overlooked the wide sweeping river down in the valley, the woman who stood there had a woolen shawl wrapped around her to keep out the night chill. It was a night just like this with the first of the three moons, the larger one just setting above the horizon that Marill found Mike and saw briefly the 'Goddess' leaving. That memory was scorched in her mind and would stay there forever, it was in fact in all her 70 something years that she had been as close to their protector, so close she saw that face, cold white with cobalt blue eyes that seem to penetrate everything. She shuddered at the thought.

 The morning meal of that day she shared with Yatar was enjoyable as always, more so the talk they had which lasted several hours thereafter. But it was here she was to meet him again, to plan the future. Word had reached them already that one of the smaller clans further north were already on the move as the snows began to fall, rivers frozen over and drafts freezing were they stood. It was not good news.

 Standing there for what might have been in Earth measurement a full ten minutes, Marill realized the futility of it, knowing Yatar would rise in his own time and not before since there was no set time for them to meet, other than 'around' sunrise. Shaking her head the woman decided to head back to her own cabin when she saw a faint glow coming from the cookhouse. "I wonder who that could be at this hour." She thought to herself.

 Hugging the shawl closer to ward off the chill, Marill made her way back down the hill headed for the cookhouse in a straight line, she pushed the rough cloth flap back to find Mike in there drinking what smelled much like herbal tea. "Mykael, what has you up at this hour? Cannot sleep?" She was curious, it wasn't like him, at least not in the hours she had been known to prowl around.

Lost deeply in thought, Mike inhaled sharply when addressed by Marill, but then made, what hopefully looked like, a casual shrug and shook his head.
“No. No more sleep for this night.” He made a small motion with his mug, “Thought this might help a bit though…” before patting on the seat next to him. “Want to join me for a bit? Tell me why you aren’t asleep either?”

"Its a time of change." Marill began as she sat beside him, nodding acquiescence to the offered beverage. She didn't really feel like putting anything in her stomach but a warming drink was the least offensive to the storm that was boiling in her gut. Not from illness or anything like that of course, just the sheer weight of worry. She began slowly after that.

 "I am to meet Yatar soon, as you might have noticed even from the very short time you have been with us, the weather is acting rather peculiarly in the last few days. But I will diverge from that subject for the moment, do you recall little Tinual? He is just four summers of age and I believe he may interest you. He has a condition that I have not been able to treat, in fact I do not even know what it is to be truthful. Mykael I have seen how you do things, seemingly from some latent memory, perhaps this may spark a deeper flame in you do you think?"

Mike nodded; he’d heard some of the men talk about the weather changes, but honestly never felt he had anything to add to their discussion, having had to little to compare with. He sipped the hot tea as he continued to listen to Marill, looking in to the fire in front of them.
“Yes, I’m pretty sure I know who you’re talking about. Scrawny little kid with an attitude? For some reason he seems to have trouble keeping up with the other kids? ”
He’d encountered the boy a few times, panting as he’d squatted by the fence, trying to look as if nothing has happened and he was only studying Mike and Yorvis working with with some of the young drafts. Always refusing to accept a helping hand, even from Yorvis who the boy seemingly adored like a big brother.
Mike pulled in a deep breath as he tore his gaze from the fire place to look back at the healer, “I’ve had no luck so far in trying to recollect my past. And believe me I have tried, so excuse me for having my doubts. But sure, for the sake of it, tell me more about him. It can’t hurt to try.”

 Dark brown eyes glittered in the fire light, seemingly taking on a life of their own as Marill looked back to Mike. Her expression wasn't what you would call 'all knowing' as she would usually be seen as, more confused, puzzled and even worried; very rare for her. Yet despite the immense weight upon her, she bared it up well. "That is he. The boy knows he is unwell, though like many of us he was born to be hard as this land expects and as you have found for yourself Mykael; but I am afraid that from what I saw of him last eve, we may not have him with us for long if we cannot find a cure for him. His skin has taken on a blue pallor of late, his breathing becomes more difficult each day."

Mike noted the change in posture of the healer, for some odd reason and even if it was only for a short moment, she was sort of losing a bit of her confidence.
He inhaled deeply and placed his mug on the bench next to him, rubbed his neck and closed his eyes; head bowed, elbows on his knees and made an attempt of trying to focus inwards. “Shortness of breath. Slow growing. Bluish color… labored breathing.” he mumbled and tried to push through the blanket.
There was a small headache building up in his temples, but he did his best to try and ignore it and pushed on. ‘What’s the connection? How would I go about to solve this?’ Rubbing his scalp with his hands he tried another angle when he draw blanks in this end and focused more on the appearance of the young boy; his posture, the sound of his breathing, his over all looks…
The headache increased fast but Mike tried to hold on, prodding and poking for yet a few more moments but finally had to succumbed to the pain with a groan and a gasp.
Pressing his palms against his eyes, he said in a low voice, “Nothing.”
He pulled in a deep breath and turned his head sideways towards Marill, looking straight in her eyes, “I’m sorry, I wish there was something I could do… If I have the knowledge within me, I can’t reach it... or maybe the knowledge was there, but now it's gone.” The tone in which he uttered those last words were close to heartbreaking.

 Leaning on her knees Marill could see she had give Mike a task, something that his memories may or may not recall. Yet even if it was a glimmer of hope, she was well aware he could possibly recall something, anything at this point. She nodded affirmative when he mentioned the symptoms, watched him as he was obviously going it over in his mind until finally he told her he couldn't recall anything. It was a slim hope, a very fine slim hope, for certain it wasn't his fault. She placed a hand on his shoulder giving him a little confidence. "You tried Mykael, that is the least I could ask for, you tried." She mused on that for a moment, gripping his shoulder as she stood. "If he should last the night, and if something should come to you, don't hesitate to seek him out, that is where I must go now for if these are his last hours, I at least should be with him."

Rubbing his temples, Mike nodded and then grabbed his mug of tea to take a sip of the beverage before answering. “Of course I will. I promise I’ll let you know momentarily if anything comes to mind.”
He had some serious doubts though; if nothing had surfaced during his prodding and poking so far, there was probably nothing left and that was something he felt more depressing by the day. Not knowing who he was or where he came from. Mike wasn’t just sure on how he should deal with at this point – accept it and move on with this new way of life, or just do as apparently others had done before him in this situation, give it all up and give in to the darkness.
