~Epilogue~

....And after the fire, the villagers slowly returned~
a little charred around the edges,
~but happy to find their huts
had been spared the worst of it.

Thankful to be alive,
they celebrated,
gave many burnt offerings
to the gods,
and with new found hope
invigorating them,
they began again....

The End
