Nila could not believe, after all the trouble and days she had spent, she finally made it to Athens. Everything was ok.
Nila was worried about her husband; she was supposed to be in Athens three days ago and meet near the Cave of Schist. “I need to get to the Cave of Schist”, said Nila. “You are in no conditions to be walking” said the woman. Nila was worried by the woman’s reaction. “What is wrong with me?” Nila asked. The woman turned around and left the tent. Nila leaned forward to see the outside as the women left, all she could see was trees. She began to think, the women had told her she was in Athens, so why is she surrounded by trees. Athens is supposed to be a rich city with architectures.
Nila began tried to move in order to see what was wrong with her. She could feel no pain. The baby began to cry and Nila began to breast-feed. A man cam into the tent and began talking to Nila and explain her situation. The man seemed to be a doctor, and was the one who delivered Nila’s baby.

The women cleaned Nila’s body and wrapped her stomach so nothing could be shown. They brushed her hair, and cleaned her as much as possible as they could.
