A Twinfinity Story (3)
She was born blind and deaf, like the rest of the Prim, but she wasn't accepted by the rest of the Prim because she was born of a human father and mother. Panpar, a prophetic dreamer, told them of a legend--The Pockets of the Prim--that would enable them to fight the other Prim who controlled the inner walls of the city. Possessing The Pockets would enable Jo-Laina and her sister Jo-Vanna to overcome the Prim, take back the city, and allow the rest of the city their true birth-rights.
