The Sun Seeker Pt 8
The courtyard was a fuzzy dappled version of itself. The boughs of the trees crisscrossing the space blocked most of the sunlight, and Jesphyr was forced to hold onto Hash's arm and let him guide her around potted plants and chairs she couldn't see.

“Jes? Are you awake?” Jes wanted to summon a snort for Hash, but that was too much emotion right now. She sat on the bed, in much the same position they'd left her in last, and soaked up the silence and dark of the room. The sun had fallen behind the horizon, and with it, her new vision was dimmed to almost nothing. There were little wisps and glimmers, but otherwise she was as blind as anyone else in this moment. It was a strange sort of comfort. A little bit of normal.
The Sun Seeker- Part 5
The Festival of Solem was taking over the streets of Bashyr, as it would in every settlement and planet across the system. Golden banners drifted between streetposts, and the bells rang out several times a day in celebration. This all came to a culmination on the fifth day, when the light parade was to march triumphantly down the streets, and the great feast would be celebrated door to door.

It began to rain lightly as evening settled, which Sehkma said was a good omen. Hash put out the banner announcing the telling hour, and Jes helped clear the courtyard and set cushions and tables about; close enough to enjoy the telling, but away from the damp drizzle trying to fight through the leaves above.
There is a tradition among my circle for Fridays. On Fridays, we are supposed to prepare our homes (and ourselves) for Shabbat. What this looks like for most people is scrubbing the house, getting rid of the daily clutter, making sure everyone in the house has done what they are supposed to do, and prepping food.

Jes crossed the street toward a brightly colored complex, with a long, heavy awning that depicting people gathered around a boiling stewpot. The enclave was one of hundreds across the planets, the only stable property the Children of Lore held onto. An old fashioned bell jingled overhead, and Jes felt tension leave her body as a familiar face bustled over.

Jes ducked between groups of people, winding her way deeper into the market throng even as it dwindled away with the daylight. The market ran alongside the port, which meant the shops would remain open indefinitely, but the crowds of families would soon be snug at home, and only those with business would be out in the small hours.
The Sun Seeker
“Beside the trickling water of the sacred fountains, wrapped in the soft, cool light of the moon, Did Cicera and Artem meet. It was a love unknown to one, unsought by the other, and forbidden to both; For he was a Trium Prince, destined to uphold the Light of Solem, and Cicera a wandering Child of Lore.”
The "Oh Shit!" Chef
I was feeling festive today, and decided to try this new bread recipe for my instapot (Sidenote: This article is just a chronicle of my kitchen adventures, but if you want the recipe, it's Here. All kudos to Silvia, she runs a lovely cooking blog)
