“I am the Dove of Heaven,” said the bird. “You have saved me. What can I give you in return?”
The Makhshef – a creature of chaos – felt something strange on his face; his cheeks were wet.
“What is this?” he asked.
“Tears,” replied the Dove.
“I want a soul,” whispered the Makhshef.
“You can only have a soul if you wander – 7 years in each direction. And you must find a woman who can stitch the cloth.”
This is the story of a demon in search for a soul and for the only woman in the world who can finish stitching his image into the Cloth of Hope and Sorrow.
