Vella woke from her restless nap with a grim disposition. Tradition stated that her time had come, hadn’t it? Tribute had to be paid, and that meant she, along with other such “worthy sacrifices”, would be gussied up and presented in a festive row of bombastic hues. Young girls gathered up like freshly frosted cupcakes for a denizen of the deep to consume. Mog [...]
