Scorched

By Sara-Q

Fantasy / Romance

Beware the scorched heart

This story begins inside a mountain. It is very dark, and the only source of light comes from fiery torches, that cast flickering shadow all around. Men are down there mining and swing picks and shovels.

They begin to sing.

"Born of heat and

fiery ash

volcanic rain combining

This heated force, both foul and fair

has a scorched heart worth mining.

So cut through the heat, black and hot

Coal, we come for, coal we got

See the beauty, singed and seared

Split the coal apart

and break the scorched heart.

Watch your step!

Let it go!

(Ho hup)

Watch your step!

Let it go!"

A small boy joins the men, accompanied by a mule pulling a small minecart. He carries a small pick and joins the men in mining. He struggles to break a piece on coal away from the mine.

"Magnificent, Powerful, Treacherous, Strange,

Fire has a magic

can't be restrained,

Stronger than one

Stronger than ten

Stronger than a hundred men HA

Born of heat and

fiery ash

volcanic rain combining

This heated force, both foul and fair

has a scorched heart worth mining.

So cut through the heat, black and hot

Coal, we come for, coal we got

There beauty and there's danger here

Split the coal apart

Beware the scorched heart."

The men begin to leave. The small boy finally breaks the piece of coal, puts it in his mine cart and hurries off after them.

"Come on, Sven" He calls and they disappear from view.
