As the nights grow cold and many prepare for winter, a new festive solstice begins.
This time, it’s the star solstice.
“Lotus, Please serve the main course for today.”
Mama Divine’s voice echoed in the room, creating a false sense of safety.
“Don’t drop it.” The firm voice filled Lotus with fear.
A crimson-blood red cloth was draped over the table with several glasses of clear white wine. Lotus placed the whole plate of heirloom tomatoes, crucian carp, and wild rice.
Each member of the family sat down and began raising their glasses in the air, singing and chanting.
“We shall wish a wonderful fire solstice!”
Each person of the family brought their glasses down and started serving themselves.
But soon, the anti-divines would arrive.
