The Storm at Qin'laT

by Peter Luckett <[email protected]>

"In the days of Kahless, there came a storm at the city of Qin'laT. All of the people sought shelter behind the city's walls except one man. When asked why he would not take refuge by Kahless, the man said, "I will not hide my face behind bricks and mortar. I will stand up to the wind and make it respect me."

Kahless honored his choice and went back inside.

Morning came. The storm had passed and the man was killed. Kahless spoke to the people saying: "The wind does not respect a fool."
