It is the end of 1348 and the plague has come to England, people are dying all around the country in a sickness that tortures them to death. It starts out with headache followed by a fever, within a day or two hard swellings starts to appear on the body. Just a short while after they appear they turn black and split open, blood and pus starts to ooze out from the black swelling on the body that can become as big as an apple. Some lucky few would survive this horrorful torture but the most people passed away.

People were laying dead all over the streets and some few men were putting the dead bodies on trolleys and took the bodies away from the town. Eve didn’t know if they would take the bodies to a graveyard to bury them or if they would just take them out of town to throw them away in a trench close by. The only important were to get the bodies away from town as fast as possible so that they wouldn’t lie around there and rot.

Eve started to feel sick from the smell in this new town they just had entered, she and her companion had been walking for weeks and tried to stay away form the bigger cities as much as they could. Actually the only one that stayed away from the cities were her, but her companion had stayed with her for some weeks and hadn’t minded that they avoided all big cities. She had told her companion that it mostly were to avoid the sickness even though that was a lie. Eve didn’t fear the sickness as the other people did, if God wanted to kill her then he could do it whenever but she wouldn’t let them burn her to death for something she hadn’t done.

It was just some month ago, a man had proposed to her many times but she had told him that she weren’t interested in him. If her father hadn’t died in the sickness then he would probably have made her marry the man, but because he were dead her brother got to decide and he wanted her to choose herself what she wanted to do. But that man wouldn’t accept a no for an answer, just one day later some men knocked on her door and told her that she needed to come with her. She asked them why but they didn’t tell her. They took her to the man that had proposed to her and left them alone, he told her that if he wouldn’t marry her then he would tell everyone that she were a witch and had spread the sickness. Because of his status everyone would believe him and she would get burned to death or maybe even beheaded before her body got burned.

She still didn’t agree to marry him and he held his promise to accuse her for being a witch, she got locked up and as she waited for her death sentence the man came many times to offer to help her if she just did as he said. Eve rejected the man everytime, she wouldn’t be someones property just to save her own life. The man was certain that she would give in just before the execution and he could save her anytime before the fire had started to burn her. But the night before the execution Eve’s brother sneaked in to the jail she were locked up in and helped her escape. They were able to catch her brother and he were put in jail because he helped the witch. If he were killed or not were unknown for Eve, she could only hope God were merciful enough to save her brother.

Since then she have been on the run, both from that man and from the sickness that they say is her fault. Just some weeks ago she were able to find a companion that she now travels with, she haven’t told her companion anything about what happened to her and hopes that she never will need to do so. They have both heard that the sickness isn’t higher up in the country so they are trying to find a place were the sickness haven’t gotten to, but litle do they know that the sickness will spread threw all of England in just a few month.

Eve was disappointed that even though they had walked so far up in the country they still just came to cities that were devistated by the sickness, some people didn’t dare to open the door for anyone because they were afraid of letting the sickness in to their house. Some people just walked around outside and hoped their faith in God was strong enough for them to survive. Eve herself prayed every night, day and morning, even in her sleep she prayed, both for herself and her family. Were anyone in her family still alive? She would probably never know, because she would never be able to go back home, not if she wanted to survive.

“Exactly the same as the other one” She commented mostly to herself, this was the third town she had been in since she met her companion and still just death as far as they went. It was the eleventh town she had been in since she started to travel, everyone had been filled with nothing else but death. Eve had cried in many of the places she had been in because of the scene she had seen, but now she were to used to it to even feel anything from it. Maybe that feeling were wrong and a crime towards God but if she always cried over death then she wouldn’t get anywhere in this hard time, she just prayed that God would forgive her for her coldness.

Circe stalked behind the brunette as she movved through the empty streets, her face under the robe If ICould Catch This Suposed Witch, IM Free! She thought joyfully to herself. She smirked slightly as the girl stopped in the middle of the street, bended over and picked a flower up smelt the beautiful white rose and slightly smiled. She continued her walk, Circe began to follow the girl at a quicker pace her pulse throbbing in her veins
Eve went towards an inn, they needed to eat and buy food for the upcomming traveling. They wouldn't be able to get in to a new town for a while which meant that they needed to get supplies so they would be able to survive. Ofcourse they would also live on what the nature could give them but it wasn't always that the nature gave them anything. And soon they would get on a boat and there it wouldn't be any food from the nature to get.

She sat down at one of the tables, the man that served food seemed to watch all customers carefully. Did he really believe that a sick person that soon would die would go to an inn to eat? They would be to busy with the pain to even be able to get up from their bed. But she could understand his worries, everyone were scared of the sickness. Eve though didn't care that much, she had faith in God, he would protect her from the sickness because he knew her heart was good. People that didn't believe that God would protect them they had a bigger chance of getting hurtened by the devil. Even if she would get sick she wouldn't worry about it, even though it was painful it was also a short process. They died after just some days, some unlucky lied a week before dying. She was certain that if the sickness would take her then she would come to heaven, she wasn't worried at all for either death or the sickness.

She called on the innkeeper and bought the food she needed for the travel then the food she were going to eat there. They couldn't stay long in the same town, if the wrong people got to hear about her being there then they would find her. She wouldn't be treated as a witch and be burned to death or beheaded, she wouldn't marry an arrogant man that were to full of himself either.

The food came to the table and the traveling food had been put in a bag made of animal skin. She payed the man that stared at her obviously searching for any sign of the sickness so he knew if he could tuch her or not. As he turned around to go to the other costumers that waited Eve shoke her head, some people were to paranoid.
