The Twice Born
A Short Story from the Tome of Aster
My name is Aster Idir Z'vedi of the Dream Warrior Tribe, and I was born in the Between.
I was conceived between two worlds, my mother's, Tibernum, and my father's, Validor.
I was birthed between two moons, on the darkest night.
I was raised between my Majka's first and last child.
I was trained to walk between two worlds, the awake and the asleep.
I was gifted between two magics, the magic of men and the magic of the gods.
And I lived a life between good and evil. I was created a Siva'pešca, a Graywalker, to be neither good, nor evil. To do the things needed for balance, the things the good cannot do and still maintain a life within their world perception.
And I was born twice.
