“Symbols?” Olya whispered. “No, codes, It has to be codes.”
“What are you babbling about, Oli?” Felix inquired. “A stupid little shrimp like you can’t read the hieroglyphics.”
“If you’re so smart, Felix,” Sheeba shouted. “Why don’t you tell us what they mean?”
“Get serious. Nobody can do that,” Felix said.
“Olya can. Can’t you, sister?”
Olya didn’t answer because the ancient scenes demanded her full attention. As she began to speak, everyone gave her their full attention.
“Here, this section is a map, Death Canyon, the village of Poe here. Great energy looms from inside the deepest cavern where all is possible.”
"How do you know this, Daughter?” Horris asked, walking up to her.
“I don’t know, Father, but wait.” She looked towards the next group of the pictures. “Here. I see Eternis, our planet, but there’s another, Blue Planet. But why is it the center and not Eternia. We aren’t the center of the dimensions as we taught. Blue Planet is.”
“The high priestess should hear of this,” Horris said.
“That is if our Olya’s interpretations are accurate,” Dolsi urged. “And if she wrong?”
“It’s true, Mother,” Olya said. “There’s no other explanations, not ones that make sense.”
T’marra came forward, voicing yet another opinion, “But others, not even the great scholars could remotely decipher these writings.”
“But my sister did,” Sheeba announced. “I believe her, and you should too.”
Horris and Dolsi made the decision to take this dilemma before the high priestess, while Stumont and his family joined the other parishioners.
At first sight of the family, the high Priestess Yamini bowed in humility. “It is you,” she exclaimed. “you are the ones,” she said, rising and putting one hand on each of the girls’ heads.”
What do you mean, priestess?” Dolsi asked.
