uppity rand being uppity


Rand was intolerant, for all of his grand posturing and supposedly virtuous ideals; faiths other than his own were seldom given the respect they deserve, certainly not the respect he demanded from others. Still, the Priest listened to Woodsmoke's primitive sort of prayer with a thin sliver of interest, similar to the sort derisive attention he afforded lesser creatures that acted in a way he found quaint.

His arms crossed over his chest, head tilting to the side as he considered this.

"It is not the same," he corrected her. "There is a vast difference between giving something to another soul on this earth and offering something of substance to the Goddess. One cannot ever hope to live up to the other."

To the Coara, it was a simple matter, easily comprehendible. He thought himself of higher intelligence and did not expect Woodsmoke to understand.

A tall ear jerked at the caw of the crow, but he ignored it.

"I give thanks for all She has given to me," he answered. "There are many ways to show praise — communing with Her directly in prayer, offering her a sacrifice, blessing the water..."

He scoffed.

"Every being on this earth is alive only because of Her rivers. Nothing alive can exist without Her. Yet only a few acknowledge and rightfully fear Her power. This world is backwards, Woodsmoke."

That, surely, she would relate to.
