Author's Note: Written for [ profile] rememberlaura 's ABC Challenge. [ profile] icedteainthebag  gave me the prompt "enthusiasm." I went with the historical usage the word which was just too perfect for Laura not to use it.

Laura has never been particularly religious and would have described herself as agnostic if asked before now. Her knowledge of the Sacred Scrolls is rudimentary, just enough to appreciate the scriptures' role in shaping Colonial culture.

As Elosha reads the Book of Pythia to her, she is overwhelmed. The passages describe her experiences with terrifying preciseness, too much to be coincidence.

And yet, though it scares her, there's a comfort in it too. What's happening to her has a reason. She has a purpose greater than herself.

She is a vessel to the gods. Her destiny has already been written.

I always found it strange that Laura accepted her role as dying leader so readily and easily. Comfort in her cancer, visions etc having a meaning is a perfect explanation. Thanks.
