The family was an oddity, Taegen noticed. Disciplined, orderly and peaceful—totally unlike their fellow villagers. There were no outbursts of anger, no loud arguments. They did not partake of the vices engaged in by nearly every other family of the village. Taegen couldn’t shake her inquisitiveness. Giving in to her curiosity, she got up from her family’s circle and approached the family.
Not Like the Rest
Sixteen-year-old Taegen and her family had joined their entire village for a week-long excursion into the forest. Normally, the men of the village would go hunt in the woods to provide for their families, but this time, they brought their families along with them. Indulgence in alcohol and drugs was common for the villagers, and this gathering was no exception.
As the week continued, Taegen couldn’t help but take notice of the odd family out. They didn’t partake in the excessive revelries but quietly went about their business. And, Taegen noted, none of the apparent disunity present in her and other villagers’ families was in theirs.
Taegen’s curiosity grew with each passing day, and on the final day of their forest excursion, she approached the mother of the family.
