Quandary Resolution 2721
pariah, skerry, parable, akimbo
Maleeka was her village’s notorious pariah because she chose an ascetic, childless life when younger – interpreted by seers as the “parable of the barren woman” to warn other girls – and often stood rebelliously with both arms akimbo at high tide on a shallowly submerged skerry in the inner islands, further confounding skittish village gawkers who believed she walked on water.
