Years passed by T's settlement. With him as their new leader, the people grew their small village into a vast city, stretching miles in each direction. within the central slums of this great town lived a family who's lives had great effect on their fellow inhabitants.
The father of this family was left to tend to his children, as his wife passed during the birth of their final child, a young, sickly girl named N. As her father had to keep their home fit for living, her older brothers had to work from a very young age, leaving her with little company during the daytime.
She could not leave the house for her terrible disease of the lungs, disabling her from breathing the town's air, often thick with smoke from the various roasts and furnaces that speckled the thriving city. Her father fashioned her a mask of cloth to be worn over her nose and mouth so she could meet the many people in ZXCV's great town.
She soon made many friends within the small area in which her family lived. Many of the other young people of T approached her because of her peculiar headwear. For months the friends played and conversed in the streets without harm, but N's friends had cautious parents. They had heard stories to horrific to tell to children. Stories of bandits and thugs who wore masks such as the one N always wore. The believed she was the offspring of such a person, having met her father, to busy toiling within the house to make friends himself.
N found herself to be accused of many acts of wrongdoing she was not at all involved in. many other young townsfolk spat upon her, or tried to remove the mask as they ran past her. Feeling her safety at risk for the mask, she journeyed to the town square to announce her innocence to the crowd. As she spoke of her struggle of breath and her mother's ill fate, she revealed her face to the crowd, proving she was not hiding her identity. The onlookers gazed in awe as they saw the most beautiful face they had ever laid eyes upon.
Her friends suddenly acted in a twisted manner, each of the males proposing marriage to her on the spot and trying to drag her away. Soon others in the crowd did the same, mesmerised by N's face. The people soon became violent, a crow of fans suddenly turning into a city-wide brawl. As the would-be suitors slashed and tore at each other, the young girl was nearly crushed under the masses of people who fell.
If not for her eldest brother carrying her across to the city border, N would surely have died by the hands of men who were aiming to impress her. As the family rode out of the city for good, the young N returned the mask to her face, forever concealing it for fear that it could cause such damage again.
