Why wasn’t I afraid of the trio?

The strange, beautiful boy

with brooding eyes and

a silver breast plate.

The dark girl

with the long black braid

and a spear in her hand.

The tall girl in red

with golden-red hair

and a sword strapped to her side.

I stood in the field

with dirt smeared on my face

and watched them with wonder.

“God has a mission for you,” the trio said

and I wasn’t afraid to die.
