Huya's Apprenticeship
By Phyllis Naegeli

1     It was still dark when Huya awoke for the day. He was to report to the village goldsmith today and begin work as an apprentice. This was a great honor for Huya, and he was excited to begin his training.
2     Huya rose from his mat, rolled it up, and placed it in the corner of the small room where his family slept. Looking around, he saw that his younger sister, Asru, was still sleeping. His parents' mats had been put away, so Huya knew they were up to see him off. Softly, he walked into the room next door where he found his mother preparing breakfast.
3     "Good morning, my son," said his mother.
4     "Good morning, Mother," said Huya. "Where is Father?"
5     "He has gone fishing," answered his mother. "He should return shortly."
6     "It would be nice to see him before I leave this morning," replied Huya.
7     "I'm sure he will be back," said his mother.
8     Huya sat at a small table in the corner of the room to eat his breakfast of figs and bread. As he finished, his father came in the back door of the small house.
9     "Good morning, Huya," said his father. "It is good to see you up early to begin your apprenticeship."
