Essence of Air - Thursday May 9th 9PM EDT
Keepers from the little mountain top village have become prey.

After a moment Zurri slowly pushed herself to hands and knees trying to drag air into her lungs. Wiping sand and small gravel from her face, Zurri looked around the small ravine and turned walking straight into a dark hooded man with strange glowing green eyes….
