Liberty part 3 Season 1
SO SORRY this part came SO LATE! Yesterday I hurt my tailbone so bad my mom thought it was broke and I might’ve had to go to the doctor 0.0 But my dad didn’t feel deep in his heart from God that it was an emergency, so phew *relieved look* Well, here’s the next part of Liberty…told in the point of view of Rosetta.
I longed for Midnight. We had roamed in search of somethign I couldn’t name – maybe trying to find a town or city – but Midnight had been bitten by a snake. And….and….died.
It was night now and I was stuck without a horse. Throwing myself against the ground in frustration, I thought about how long I had gone without food – not to mention water.
I felt I would surely pass out. It had been Two days without the slightest taste of eat or drink.
I cried out to God remembering some faith I had seen the Americans practice. I needed hope….
I was better off at the O’teeles!
At least I was well fed. Sure, I did hard work, but I was in good health.
All of the sudden I heard a noise and slight whispers. I whipped around towards the sound.
But all was silent.
The night air was still as if it was holding her breath.
“Who goes there?” I spoke in strained English.
Not a sound. I heard a twig snap behind me.
Was I surrounded?
“H-h-hello? Show yourself!”
I pulled my rebozo over half my face to disguise myself.
One thing was for certain.
I wasn’t alone.
