The air was alive and festive everywhere in the village.
The sparkle she saw in Darla’s bright blue eyes reflected her own excitement and anticipation for the festivities set for the next day.
She had been friends with the chief’s daughter, Darla, ever since she could remember.
The blonde, blue eyed girl was just a few months older than her and already looked like a woman fully grown.
At sixteen, Maedra was almost a woman herself, but the chief’s daughter had privileges that a baker’s daughter could not afford.
While Maedra had her daily chores taking up half her day, Darla never had to work a day in her life of privilege and position.
But that did not diminish their friendship and they could have almost been sisters.
“Maedra! My dear, dear Maedra!” Darla laughed; the sound of silver bells in spring. “At least dust the flour out of your shiny dark hair.”
“Never mind the flour.” Maedra gave the blonde girl a warm hug. “Are we ready for the celebrations tomorrow?”
“That’s why I am here, silly.” The chief’s lovely daughter laughed. “And I want you with me when I pick up my dress from Norba’s tailor shop.”
“She’s makes the best dresses I’ve ever seen.” Maedra smiled ruefully. “But I can’t afford any of them.”
