Dear readers, tonight with us is a teenaged girl, originally from 11th century Khorasan but now roaming a strange land where all the myths of our planet found a home. She and her friends must follow a prophecy that is guaranteed to change the face of the land — one way or another.
Tell us a little about where you grew up. What was it like there?
Who’s asking? I don’t take lightly to questions about my origins, you might be a purple mage for all that I know.
But if Ethan says that you are to be trusted, I will answer all your questions.
I am from Khorasan, the city that spreads culture and art to the whole world. My father is a master trader and a world traveler, everybody who is anybody in the twelfth century have heard of him, Amar El-Khorasani, but you should know that he is very famous.
Did you have any favourite toys as a child? Any cherished memories?
I think that Ethan really has faith in you, you can’t give this information to anybody, I will be immediately banished from Agartha.
As a child, my father brought for each of us, his children, a toy of the finest porcelain when he traveled to China, mine was a very nice doll, she had a silk dress and held a small umbrella. I used to take her with me all over the place, but then my mother took her away to concentrate on the house duties, I am a very good cook because of her.
As for memories, I think it was the day my father brought the astrologer to the house, and he started to explain to me and my ten siblings the stars in the heavens and how to use them to guide our ways in the night; I think this the most cherished memory of my childhood, this is when I decided that I wanted to travel, like my father.
What do you do now?
What kind of question is that? I thought that Ethan must have told you. We are traveling the land of Agartha in search of the chronicler, he will give us our next destination, I hope.
What can you tell us about your latest adventure?
Let’s see, I have mysteriously ended up in this strange and magical land, Agartha, although I don’t have any memory of how I came to be here.
I met this very nice young man, Ethan, you know him. I also met Darren, he is not as nice, but he is good, in his own savage way.
There is also this crazy army leader, the green lady, who is chasing us for some time, but we are two steps ahead of her.
It has been a very thrilling experience thus far.Continue reading “Mara (of The Chronicles of Agartha, by Sherif Guirguis)”
