The following depiction is of a court room after a series of paranormal activities:
My lord and lady, the recent cataclysmshave meddled with the prosperity of our country. Houses are catching fire every now and then and this is causing us not just loss of resources but also loss of lives. We have lost 4 people till now.
This, my lord and my lady, is afait accompli which cannot be altered. It is happening because we tried to invade the forest of fire. Our epics warn us against doing so but we have done it and now we are being subjected to the wrath of Iris, the fire lady.
Iris, the forest of fire all these are simply myths. I do not want people of my country to believe in these non scientific explanations.Therefore, honorable court priest, please refrain from intimidating my people with such insignificant and useless elaborations. I do not want my people to sort the wheat from the chaff in such times of adversities. Please do not force them to pick and choose between all sorts of worthless rumors and then believe in the most intriguing one. No misinformation should be conveyed to my people, none.
I beg your forgiveness, my lady. But the fire lady isself effacing. She is running havoc in our country because we have violated the conditions mentioned in the scroll of peace and not because she wants us to attend to her needs and worship her. In my opinion, the only thing which we can do to save our people is abandon our beloved kingdom and shift to some other kingdom as this piece of land, the land of ashes, has clearly been cursed by Iris and is thus uninhabitable now.
The priest tries to object but leaves as the king does not entertain any further discussion.
Enough, honorable priest. I thought you were an educated and practical man who could see beyond the pages of our ancestral scripts and could help us in solving problems by reminding us about our past mistakes simultaneously. But you too seem to be blinded by superstitions and cultural illusions. This shall not be tolerated in my court. Before you misguide and terrify my people, I being the plenipotentiary of the kingdom of ashes decide to exonerate you from serving this country. Till some radical solutions to the existing problem, we do not seek . Guards, please escort our priest to his home.
Queen (in a hushed voice) commands Flake (servant) to follow the priest immediately and give her all details about his movements after he leaves.
