CHAPTER 6 Part 2 IN THE COMELINESS OF THE SHADOWS VI

INSIDE LEITH'S HOME

Their cottages are large log cabins designed to hold up to eight-hundred families. The entire area is surrounded by a large wooden fence. Just like a regular Kingdom, to get inside, a person would have to enter through the front-gate. During certain hours, the gates are closed to give protection against enemy attackers while the barbarian's army rests. They are in a three-bedroom-apartment inside one of the units inside the long cottage. His mother is graceful and slim. She makes dinner.

Just like the men, the women are considered equals. The women have a choice to become soldiers in the army or take care of the young.


She acts crazy most of the time. However, this is why Leith's father loves her. In comparison to him and her, her body build is truly small. Nevertheless, she stands 6-feet tall. Leith's father stands 7-feet and 7-inches tall.

He and his father sit at the kitchen table. They wait until Leith's mother dress the table with edible delights. She smokes a large three-hundred-pound hog. There isn't a pan big enough to put the hold thing in, so she carries it from the smoke house on her back. When she enters into the kitchen, she slams the hog on the table. Salty slush is all over her body. His father says,

COMMANDER

"Woman you are nasty. You should go take a bath."

He speaks with an exaggerated heavy tone. This is where Leith gets it from.

Leith laughs at his father's joking. The both of them smile at each other. His mother is upset at them. She slaps Leith in the head.

MOTHER

"Now don't you go laughing at what your father said... Can't you see he is crazy?"

Her voice is heavy as well.

Leith quickly catches his baring.

LEITH

"Yes maim."

She goes over to his father and sits in his lap staring deep into his eyes.

MOTHER

"Now, for you, don't go making your son laugh at his mother. You know I can hurt both of you, right?"

He replies,

COMMANDER

"Dam woman, Come here. You are so fine!"

He pulls her close and licks the slush from her neck. She pushes him away and says,

COMMANDER'S WIFE

"Now not in front of your son dear. There'll be plenty of that for tonight."

She gives him a big kiss on his lips. She stands up then sits down next to him.

Pulling a boot knife from her boot, she stabs it in the hog cutting her a piece off. She eats her portion of the hog. Sticking the knife into the table, she almost hits her husband's hand.
