Chapter 17 : Where Will You Be
The central character of this week’s instalment of The Threshold Series is Rahu Lüli, the young cenobite from Kõrgus.
At the beginning of the chapter, the teenager is getting ready to leave the monastery, and he ponders the events that have led him to believe that he has found the identity of the next spiritual leader of the remote community.
« As he finished putting his things in his backpack, the novice recalled how he had come to the decision.

His original impressions had been confirmed. The woman in his glimpses neither had the physiognomy nor the skin pigmentation typical of the people of Kõrgus. Moreover, she was very pretty, and in fact her features starkly contrasted with her white hair, suggesting she was actually much older than what her vernal face led him to believe. And considering her clothing, she was clearly some sort of religious figure. »
Proceeding towards the gates of the cloister, the boy will encounter friends whose influence could very well make him reconsider his plans.
