Book Excerpt Bright's Passion

Book Excerpt

Bright sniffed the stew. It smelled wonderful. Despite the lack of vegetation in the area, they had somehow managed to season the stew just right. Still, it didn’t smell like any sort of meat he’d had before. It definitely wasn’t caribou.

Bright was seated next to the owner of the house. “What dish is this?” He lifted his spoon to take a bite.

The blond-haired man grinned, almost evilly. “It’s a very special dish. I used the fattest one.”

“The fattest what?” For some reason, Bright couldn’t take a bite until he knew what he was eating.

“My fattest son, of course.” The blond-haired man laughed. “We have no choice when the game is scarce. He was always eating so much and catching so little, but now through his sacrifice, he will make us all proud by filling the whole village.”

Bright felt light-headed. He dropped his spoon and it splattered in the stew. This man had to be joking. “You killed your son and made him for dinner?”

The man frowned, but took a large bite. “Yes. It was sad for a little while. He cried a lot and begged me not to kill him, but he never complained when we fed him his sister.”

Bright’s stomach turned. He leaped from the table. He was going to be sick.

“Where are you going?” the man asked.

Everyone in the village continued to gobble down the stew as if it were nothing. Bright felt the disgust in his belly quickly turn to burning rage.

“This has to end.” Bright’s body started to glow; the fireplace behind the man exploded and ran up the building.

Like the man had ignored his children’s screams, Bright would ignore the screams of the villagers as his flames burned them to ash.
