Quilly Three Word Challenge#13

Quilly
words used antediluvian-Older time
Hitonious-
paladin
In an evil antediluvian time Ladden felt burdened with the care of those around him. There were the physical needs, but also the spiritual.There were few that lived a life regarding the needs of others. Lawlessness prevailed. Hitonious acts were committed. Ladden felt a need to pray constantly.

He sat at the bedside of a child tortured by some men for their pleasure. Ladden laid his hands on the child. As he prayed the body of the child healed. He created in an sheltered area a place to grow crops.
In a cave he gave sanction to those hunted, and the One he prayed to protected the cave. Those of the village claimed him to be a paladin.
History did not give him a place. His only reward was that he made a small difference.

And what a small difference it was. Great story. It's short and to the point. Excellent :)

Ah, but one tiny ripple spreads out across the pond and soon becomes a wave! Besides, the best rewards aren't to be had while we still inhabit our earthly bodies.

Wonderful story with a great moral! You put my words to excellent use!

An excellent story. If we all made a difference, it becomes big.
I used the wrong words for my first attempt. I'll get it right next week.

Sometimes it is those small deeds that make the biggest changes. Quilly knows best I think about this. But I know too. It is something that would be great if it could happen on a global scale.
