Avani and Sarma debate who is better loved
Myth » Avani and Sarma debate who is better loved
In the Zikalan Temple of Avani, this particular exchange between Avani and Sarma is a particular favorite. It is read on the Day of Rebirth. Other sects generally don`t necessarily reject the occurrence of such an exchange, but see no advantage in celebrating it, especially on a day important to Sarma.
`Mad you are, Sarma,
when you reckon up your ugly, hateful deeds;
Rilni knows, I think, all fate,
though he does not speak out.'
`Be silent Avani, I know all about you;
you aren`t lacking in blame;
you steal the honor of my gifts to the Khinasi here,
for `tis I who bestow their prosperity.'
`False is your tongue, I think you just want
to yelp about wicked things;
the Khinasi scorn you, for they are knowing,
you are nothing but greed.'
`Be silent, Avani, you`re a witch
and much imbued with malice,
you turn your magic to evil and destruction,
you know nothing of prosperity.'
`You covet the love of my people,
you think it a fine thing to steal what you want;
but I say unto you, the Khinasi know
that I protect them from the likes of you.'
`You mistake yourself that you are loved;
your people fear that all their lands
will burn as a desert
if they do not placate you.'
'You are as mistaken as Eloéle,
who is foolish in her estimations;
for neither of you can discern
what is means to be loved.'
`You`re confused and must be dreaming,
when you hint that Khirdai loves not my daughter.'
`That the night was ravaged by storms,
is well known to all;
but the beauty and warmth of Leira
pleaseth Khirdai`s heart like
the fire suits the rider come out of the rain
You cannot take what is mine,
nor your daughter what is my daughter's;
your greed and grasping ways are too
well known to us and to the Khinasi people
go home to your pile of coins
and find in them cold comfort.'
