Oralia goes on a journey to save herself and change her way of life.
From the beginning, my mother warned me about the rules. The Kept are not to speak unless spoken to. We must never look a Decision Maker in the eyes. And above all, The Kept must never contradict the decisions made by the Decision Makers.
I am Oralia, only daughter of Broliad, housekeeper to The Decision Makers. I began working along side my mother when I was four years old. My responsibilities grew as I did, and I have become a second generation housekeeper to The Decision Makers. If I am very lucky and with hard work, my mother says, I will take over her roll when she passes into the great beyond.
