Chapter 2

It was chilly outside, so I was glad I wore my heavy coat. As I walked I thought about the note I had left on the kitchen table.

Gone for a trip, I’ll be back soon.

Don’t worry, I’m fine.

I have food, water, and supplies.

It would probably annoy the whole lot of them, but that didn’t really matter. I just hoped Alexa would be okay with me gone and it being mostly her and father. I took out a map I had packed and was looking at that, when I had a feeling someone was watching me. I put the map away and looked around.

“Hello?” I called. “Anyone there?”

Elfer Lars walked onto the street.

“Hello Kaia. What are you doing here so late? Does your father know that you are out?”

“Hello Elfer Lars,” I said, curtsying as best as I could with my gear on. “My father does not know that I am out, but that is because I wanted to surprise him.” As I talked, I tried to think of a viable reason for me to be out so late, without my father’s permission. Something told me to not trust him with my real intentions, so I improvised.

“Father’s birthday is coming up, and his favorite flower is a MoonGlow. I wanted to surprise him. It is common knowledge that you can only find MoonGlows in the dark, so that is obviously when I would look for them.”

“I see.” He said. It looked like he was about to say more, but a fight broke out in front of the local bar.

“Excuse me,” he said, “someone is disturbing The Peace.” I curtseyed again as he walked away, and I quickly left before he could come back.

Walking away, I thought about the stories mother told me about the first time the Elfers came into the government. We were in a civil war, and there seemed like there was no end to the violence, but then The Elfers said that they could bring peace again, peace that would last this time. Naturally, everyone loved them and voted to have them come into power while the old government people stepped down. I was told to never speak about the civil war, though mother said that it's forbidden.

I decided to follow Elfer Lars for a bit, and make sure he didn’t tell anyone about me. If he did tell anyone, at least I’d know about it.

I followed Elfer Lars, keeping out of sight. He didn’t really do anything interesting except patrol places and make sure people kept, ‘The Peace’. He had a clipboard with a list that he would check things off of, places to be at for certain amounts of time. As much as I disliked the guy, he sure was organized. At the bottom of his list, I saw ‘meet with the Elfer’s’ written. I decided I’d follow him until the meeting, and then I would be on my way. I couldn’t afford to lose any more time than that.
