"I'm scared, Gode." Ella pointed out her concern to her friend. She was on the verge of crying but was holding back.
How she wish she was never this vulnerable and weak!
She wished she was carefree and strong like others.
"Scared? Why?" Gode asked in a feigning confusion while she was trying to conceal the twitch at the corner of her lips.
"The town." Ella looked out of the small window of her cabin and sighed helplessly. "They are keeping a close eye on me from the past few days. It was as if they are making certain I cannot leave anywhere from here." Ella was getting anxious with the behavior of the villagers.
Why were they suddenly so conscious about her? She knew that whenever the villagers were being careful, she was trouble.
