Ostara #story

Ostara a short Story by Alejandro N. Marrero A long time ago there was much less of you beings throughout the world. The pagans who prayed to me each spring called me Ostara. I would herald the birth of longer days. Dispelling winter slowly by using light to banish the cold away. Not long after…
