Her right arm is bent and held up at shoulder level in front of her. Background left is a young girl also wearing a headband. She’s standing facing left. Her right arm is held straight up. Her left arm is held straight in front of her. Background right is a woman with a ponytail, holding the same pose, only facing right. In front of her is a little girl who holds both her arms above her head, slightly bent. One of her feet is held on tiptoe behind the other. In the sky above them, there are bright sparkling lights. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lies over the image. A watermark of the word “Storyfeather” lies over the image.

The Sovereign is coming to our town.
We must have entertainments ready. We must have feats to display.
We must demonstrate the strength and wit and spectacle that she expects from her people.
We must do this all the more because we were not chosen for our merit. We were chosen by chance.
