"Today is a special day," Oyera said, clapping her hands for attention. Everyone stopped to listen to the raiser. "Mirfai and Athano have come from the Council of Elders to talk with us about age-sets." Oyera motioned to the two Elders standing beside her.Author's Notes
"Those of you who are five or six summers old, come forward and sit with me," said Imamom. She beckoned to the older ones.
Karavai, Tekura, and Ularki hastened to her side along with several others. As they moved toward the center of the large round infant-house, the remaining raisers and the nursing mothers shifted the babies toward the walls.
Mirfai leaned down to address the children face-to-face, her silver braids swinging. "Several newborns have arrived recently," she said. "We want to move an age-set over to Fledgling House, so as to make more room in here. We feel that some of you are ready to be considered children."
