Episode 24: The Snake King

This entry is episode 24 of 30 in the series Tale of Tales

  The Snake King     Before the others noticed her disappearance, Senka was already far away. When the sudden, supernatural light had emanated from Mara’s staff, penetrating even the darkness of her unseeing eyes and causing her to blink in reaction, she had simultaneously heard that strange lisping voice, as if it were whispering directly into her ear, urging her up: “Now… essscape… now… essscape…” And Senka immediately followed the voice’s urging without a… Read More

If you are the one, you must remember!” “What?! I do not understand you!” “Remember, lame wolf, your true self!… Read More

This entry is episode 21 of 30 in the series Tale of Tales

  Weapons of War     The burly warrior grunted his serious dissatisfaction over the weapons they had at their disposal: Vuk had absolutely nothing – the villagers who had wanted to take off his hand had never given him back his knife; Vukan also had nothing, while Brado had a small knife about his belt, more suitable for cutting forest plants than heads; Miloš had only his hunting knife and his hefty shepherd’s crook;… Read More
