The Girl from the Faraway Land
After the Blood 2
Scrolls of the ancient Sethians, chronicling the deluge, mention a passionate wife of Noah's by the name of Norea, who came from an unknown land far away. Her name means "fire" and she burned off the worthless souls clinging to the rump of the ark as it floated free of the ground. But some say that she existed even before God said "let there be light!" No one dared mention this while Christianity reigned supreme but, Shelley, the poet, knew the land's whereabouts and the name of its ruler.
