Since I remember I have lived on ma Mah´s and ma Pah`s farm. Ma Pah and me once spent a summer with a few from the village to built a little bridge over a creek. But then someone who was named Imperial of Ishel came rode on a horse and said that we would have to pay money to use the bridge. I don´t know where Ishel is. Maybe it´s Elsweyr? Haha! He called it... fee or tax or something. Ma Pah then said yes, but he said it like he said yes to ma Mah when she told him to repair the roof of our shack or something like that. Why I tell you this? You asked who I am and why I´m here, so I tell you!

Where was I? Yes. That guy of Ishel had a list and he said ma Pah and ma Mah and me were not on the list. He made a lot of riff-raff about it. But then he wrote us all on the list. Ma Pah. Ma Mah. And me. And he wrote behind our names that we lived at the brigde. "Ad Portem". Yes. Since that day I´m not only Maramia. No. I´m Maramia Ad Portem now.

Well another day I was playing with a boy from the village and that meany was mean to me. So I took a stick and made his nose bleed. But then ma Mah came and ma Pah came and I got spanked. They said that mother Mara cries when I beat somebody. But I wonder whether she cried when they beated me. Another day there came meanies to our farm. But they were not little boys from the village. They were bandits. And ma Mah ran away and ma Pah ran away and they tried to take me with them. But then I saw one of the bandits trying to stab Lord Squeak! Sure, I turned around and...

Who Lord Squeak is? He was my favorite pig. He always squeaked louder than his brothers and sisters when I came to feed them. Most he liked carrots. And potatoes. And...

What? Yes. The bandit. I saw how that mean bandit had a long knife and tried to stab Lord Squeak! I ran up to him and shouted at him, but he would just laugh and prick me with his knife. Then I got angry. I took a pole from the fence and made his head bleed. Then he fell to the ground and didn´t prick me or Lord Squeak no more. Ma Mah and ma Pah told me that Mother Mara doesn´t cry when I beat a bandit, even if the Bandit is dead then. Ma Mah and ma Pah told me that Mother Mara and her brothers and sisters are happy when I take a stick and make bandits dead. So we never again ran from bandits, but I beated them with a stick. Or a pole. And someday I found a beating stick one of the bandits carried. Then I used the beating stick. And another day I found a beating stick with a metal apple on top and the apple had spikes. No I know, that was a mace, but back then I didn´t know. Another day I found a nice pair of boots with one of the bandits. And the other day a nice shirt. And the other day a rusty helmet and a jacket of metal and the other day...

What? But I found many many things... I could tell you... No?

You are mean...

After I found many many things it was someday in the night. There were bandits, but there were much more bandits than I could make all dead. And they made ma Mah and ma Pah bleed. I was angry and had a big beating stick. I made many bandits dead. But they were mean and made ma Mah and ma Pah dead while I made them bleed. They lit a fire on ma mah´s farm and teared down ma Pah´s bridge. And the next day I cried so much. Cause ma Mah and ma Pah were dead. I liked them much. Even more like I liked Lord Squeak. I ate Lord Squeak. But ma Mah told me only after I ate him. That was mean, but I ma Mah still was not so mean that someone was allowed to make her dead.

I remember the other day. I still cried and didn´t eat. But I was hungry. Ma Mah´s and ma Pah´s farm was put. And the food was put. And ma Mah and ma Pah were still dead. So I left ma Pah´s and ma Mah´s farm and went to the village. They knew me and were sad when I told them that ma Mah and ma Pah were dead. And I had to cry again when I told it. But then they said that I was good at making bandits dead. And they said that now I had no home and couldn´t live with them. They said that the Imperial army needs people being good at making bandits dead. So I left the village and came to a bigger village. And after that village was an even bigger village. And then on another day there was a village so big, it was a town.

And they told me, yes, Imperial army is here. And they said I could be a soldier, too. But I had to make a training. And they shouted at me and were mean, but they said that they had to be mean so that I could become a soldier. Many days I cried, cause everybody was mean to me. The man shouting at me were mean. The man who wanted to be soldier were mean. There were no other girls who wanted to be soldier. And the other day I didn´t want ot be a soldier anymore. I said to Mara that I wanted to go home. But I had no home no more... But then it got better. The shouters were mean, but they shouted and I didn´t listen. And some men were not only mean. Some men were nice to me. Some nights we were together and they were very nice. I was Dibellamia. And I´m a soldier now. I passed the test and made many man of straw and wood put. And I made many shouters and man put. But just in training with beating sticks of wood.

The other day I was a soldier. They gave me good armor and a good beating stick. But I was sad that I had to leave the town and go to another town. But I didn´t cry. I was a soldier. I was sent to the other town and went there. And then I was sent to the village and went there. But another day I saw odd ligthning in the sky and a few hooks fell to the ground. And strange monster fell out from it. But the shouters said, no, don´t make them dead. So I didn´t made them dead. But they scared me and were mean. The other day I was sent somewhere else and I made bandits dead. And then the other day I made orcs dead. And then I was sent somewhere else again. Sent here and sent there. Make this bleed and make that dead.

And this day you asked who I am. I´m done telling you. Can I go now?

I`ve read your report, good Ceraso, but still I wonder why a god damn woman is serving in my legion! Especially such a dim-witted one who can´t even read! Women don´t belong on the battleground. Only barbarians like the Nords or weaklings like the Elves would sent their woman into war. Find out how this could happen and try your best to get that Maramia into another legion.

Read and returned

This is pretty awesome. The simplicity isn't so overdone its always foolish and comical, just gets the rustic feel right.

I have to ask: are you a professional writer? And if not...why the hell not!? This is fantastic, better than a lot of books I've read!
