Since the very start of the civilization,when men started to settle down in a land calling it home, men had fought men for territory. the strongest and mightiest had always won the battle, and then acclaimed the adversary territory as their own. the ages may pass, and the scenery may never change, only a few aspects.
the organization only getting a little complex, and people being divided in: workers and warriors. warriors gathered and in order to protect the people of their lands, they formed something that nowdays we call army.
but funny, at ancient times, women never was able to fight alongside men.

This is a story about a girl, who had the dream of being a knight. her name, let your heart never forget: Annalot.

-Hands of a Maiden, Heart of a Beast- Enters Annalot

in tight and curly streets surrounded by houses. in a prosperous burgh, a childish scene was taking place:
“tradiction eh? i will show you boys how to threat a girl, PROPERLY” a young girl, sightly small, a charmingly beauty. with a redish ribbon on her long hairs said. she was holding a broom, in a kind of battle posture. “Annalot… i dont think its right to a girl go bashing on the boys”, a yet smaller and cute girl said, while hiding behind the backs of the girl with a broom.
“You shut up! that’s all your fault to begin with, if it wasn’t your submissive behavior we wouldn’t be involved in this mess!”. while talking to the small girl the boys started to sneak out the place, so the girl with the broom yelled at them “AND YOU GUYS, I DIDN’T SAID A WORD ABOUT I’M LETTING YOU GO!” she pointed the broom at them and finished the sentence ” LISTEN, YOU WILL GIVE THAT DOLL BACK, OR ELSE I WILL TAKE IT BACK!”
“oh ann…” the hiding girl sighed.
“i will not wait any longer. GIVE THAT DOLL BACK NOW!”
“… geez what a lioness, there, i dont want to be beaten by a girl with a broom. you won annalot. take this stupid doll back” the boy throwed the doll back
“see cecilia? thats how its done. you cant let those stupid boys do with you all they want.” annalot sighed
the small girl Cecilia took the doll and smiled “thank you big sis, i dont know what would be of me if you’re not around.”
“its getting late, your mom will probably be worried about you. want me to take you to your home,Cecilia?” analot said while looking at a clock upper at the passage
“there is no need big sis, i can go all by myself”.
“haha then its ok you grow up women you”.
“until tomorrow ann” Cecilia said while waving and running
“until tomorrow then”.

getting home, Annalot was received by her mother with a somehow, sad face. seeing Annalot entering by the door, she immediately started to say:
“ann, oh my dear and beloved ann. you know that your age is drawing near, dont you?”
“uh? mom, i dont believe i know what you’re talking about now… what my age have to…” Annalot sudenly recalled about the wedding age. she wasnt concerned about wedding any man. but, the society never would accept her if so.
“mon…” said annalot with a faint tune on her voice “why do i have to marry someone? and even more, marry someone without love…”
Annalot mom sighed “child, love will come, eventually it will come”
“but, MOM!”
“there is nothing to be done about ann, i dont want it to you, your father either but, listen, you will eventually have a better life, please my daughter try to understand.”
“YOU KNOW? I DONT WANT TO BE JUST ANOTHER WOMEN SITTING ON SOME PLACE LIVING A STUPID LIFE WITH ANY MAN!” the tears started to go down on Annalot eyes, she become sudenly realy red.
“my daughter… you…”
“MOM I WANT TO LIVE, I DONT WANT TO JUST BE ANOTHER LADY WHO SERVES A MAN BLINDLY!”
“ANNALOT! THAT WAS ENOUGH!” her mom yelled “SINCE YOUR FATHER PASSED AWAY YOU ARE ACTING SO UNLADY LIKE, WHAT DO IN THE WORLD DO YOU PLAN TO YOUR LIFE? YOU’RE A WOMEN! MARRYING A MAN AND LIVING WITH HIM IS WHAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO -”
“SCREW THIS! SCREW THIS! I DONT WANT TO MARRY ANYONE!”.
“ANNALOT! ITS ALREADY TIME TO SETTLE THIS BEAST HEART! YOU’RE NOT A BOY AND YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS ALREADY! YOU’RE NOT A KID ANYMORE!”
Annalot gave a glance to her mother, her eyes filled with anger, at that time, her mom even could feel the riot that was happening inside the small girl’s heart. And without a word, annalot just kicked the door and runned away. she runned with all the strength she could, to anywhere far from her fate.
“ANNALOT! RETURN AT ONCE!” her mom yelled, but no response she keep running “ANNALOT!!!”
