[Flashback] Notok (Centari)

A surreal cavern city inhabited by Symenestra where stones glow and streets are reams of silk. Cocoon like structures hang between stalactites and cascade over limestone flows in organic and eerie arabesques. Without a Symenestra willing to escort you, entrance is impossible.

[Flashback] Notok (Centari)

Autumn, 510 AV

Summer had just made way to autumn as the Harvesters returned. They had travelled Kalea extensively, looking for the perfect women to bear their Webs‘ children. In many ways their Harvest had been easier than was the norm. They had one of those that had fallen from the sky with them: Centari, a woman that was Symenestra by day and Ethaefael by night, that sometimes took the form of an almost unnaturally beautiful creature that people trusted without hesitation. She was able to go where Symenestra faced hatred and discrimination – rightfully so – where the Widows were met with suspicion.

She was the reason why they returned home in time for Notok, the Harvest Festival, although their Harvest had not been entirely without challenges. One of the surrogates had almost managed to slip out of their camp in the dead of night – the man that had been supposed to take care of her had been carless and not tied her up as he had been told. Once their party had been attacked. Travelling through the wilderness was risky at the best of times. Mizahar had become a dangerous place after the Valterrian.

They had just travelled through the forest that could be found on the surface, above Kalinor and climbed up a hill. The entrance to the underground city of the Symenestra was there, on the hill. The surrogates were lowered into the tunnel that led to Kalinor. There was a visible air of excitement surrounding the small group of Symenestra. Notok was the greatest celebration in Kalinor. There would be feasts, reunions with the Harvesters‘ Webs and contests for the surrogates. The most beautiful and exotic surrogates usually won great prizes.

„I’m happy for my sister and her husband“, Daratur Acacia, a young man, said to Centari. The presence of the Ethaefal always made him a little uneasy, but unlike some of his fellow Symenestra he made an honest effort to get to know her better. „They’ll finally be able to start a family. What are you going to do with the woman you captured? Are you going to sell her? Or do you want to start a family of your own? Have any of the men in Kalinor caught your fancy?“

As he asked this, he noticed that they had fallen a bit behind the rest of the group and gave her a sign to hurry up. They would enter Kalinor through the Woven Gate this time since they had humans – the surrogates with them.
