Message

Nunti takes a deep breath in and opens her eyes to see Ida, Ada and Badak looking down at her.

“No!” she yells and sits up.

“Child” Ada says and puts her hand to her forehead, and again, she calms down instantly. “Be calm, you are safe here” Ada takes her hand away and Nunti looks ahead.

“How do you feel?” Ida asks.

“I feel fine... very hungry” Nunti says.

“Food we can get you” Ada says and moves off.

“Snake is very good for you” Ida says.

“Snake?” Nunti asks.

“You came with a message?” Badak interrupts.

“I did” Nunti reaches for her back with her right hand.

“Your bag?” Badak holds a dark brown, now torn bag.

“Yes” she holds it upside down, and nothing falls out of it. Nunti freezes, and looks gobsmacked, knowing where the message is.

“What is it?”

“The wolves... they have it” without another word. Badak races out of the tent. 

The End
