How to Catch a Fish (ManxMan)
- There is a saying: "If you can't change it, don't worry about it." -
However, when you are a prisoner of war, there is not a whole lot you can do except worry. At first, you worry about your fellow soldiers. How many died? Who survived? Then you worry about yourself. What will happen to me? Am I a hostage or an example? But after some more time passes and escape no longer seems possible, you realize the past is in the past, the future is unforeseeable, and there is only one question you should be asking yourself. How will I survive the day?
- "You never know until you try." -
Escape? Tried that. Revolt? Tried that as well. Atasah is a prisoner of war. A demon as he might be, there is not much he can do when the prison sucks away all the magic. In a prison controlled by its occupants with not a guard in sight, it is adapt or die. Even with hope of rescue long gone, he continues to plan his escape. And when a new prisoner arrives, escape does not seem all that far off.
