Three millennium ago the stone man with the help of the eagle saved our world. Now I call you together at our parliament where all are equal and may speak freely, to see if and how we should return to the old world and the light. At last the blue gas has dissipated, so it is safe to leave our underground haven. Now each can speak and tell of their desire, for the light calls us to freedom. Freedom from the caverns our forefathers created. The decision is for each of you to make. May Benjamin Blue be with you.
Having a bad technology day today. My first story for this prompt somehow deleted without any back up trace. Then I set up a gravatar but it failed to link to this post. Now upon posting this link the prompt picture disappeared from the link. I considered going back to quill and parchment, but I would miss your comments, so please keep them flowing my way if you can.
