She stared at the people around her in horror. This year was the year that they selected a bride for the god of Mount Felivelle. It was more accurate to say that they were selecting a sacrifice. No one had ever seen the fire deity, but it was widely known that he lived in the volcano near the village.

"At least you'll finally be useful to the village," the hauty boy chuckled, kicking dirt at her. "Half blood filth."
