The streets and alleyways in Midinga were narrow and the layout of the streets was like a maze for anyone not familiar with them. It was the perfect setting for someone like Yanaike. When she needed something to eat she just snatched it away from one of the thousand market stalls placed all over Midinga, usually the stall owner would angrily try to follow her only to find out that it was impossible to keep up to her pace in the huge maze. But one day things changed. It was a day like all other. Yanaike just had gathered her breakfast at the market and she had fled into the ‘maze’ with the stall owner angrily chasing her. She ran as fast as she could, quickly making left and right-turns along the way. She jumped on little balconies and over fences which made it completely impossible to track her route. Just as she thought she’d lost the stall owner and when she was about to start her breakfast. She heard a voice. “Hey! Get here!” A man came running to her. It wasn’t the stall owner from today, nor did she remember him to be a stall owner she previously stole something from. However she didn’t plan finding out what he wanted to do with her. So she started running, and finally she outsmarted him as well, just like she did with the stall owner. However he returned the next day, this time bringing a couple of friends. It became clear to Yanaike that they didn’t want to take revenge on her for stealing goods from the market. No, they had something different in mind for her. Again she outsmarted the guys, however it was a bit more difficult to outsmart a couple of man, than just one. He kept returning, wherever Yanaike was hidden, he would find him. And each and every day he brought more friends. The last day Yanaike spend in the streets of Midinga, she’d found herself completely outnumbered. As usual, she tried running away, escaping from the men. However, whatever she did. Whether she turned left or right, whether she did something completely random, everywhere she went, another man popped up trying to catch her. In the end she was surrounded by those men. They came closer and closer and there was no way to go. One of them started punching her, knocking her out. When she woke up again, she found herself in some kind of storage room, locked in a cage. The room and everything around her was gently swinging back and forth, of which Yanaike concluded they’d left the ground and she was aboard a vehicle in the air. She didn’t intend to stay long however. A simple cage was nothing for her. She tried using magic, but it seemed the cage was enchanted such that her spells didn’t work. Her backpack and weapons were on the other side of the room and Yanaike was unable to get to them. Yanaike sighed, curled up like a hedgehog and started crying quietly. Suddenly, her ears twitched as she heard someone approaching. She quickly swept away her tears as she didn’t want the stranger to notice how she had cried, and waited who would come in.
