However, I emboldened my soul and, wading through the sand, behold, a fire shone from afar burning with a blazing light. So I made for it hoping Hral: to find succor and broke out into these verses: "Belike my Fortune may her bridle turn And Time bring weal although he's jealous hight, Forward my hopes, and further all my needs, And passed ills with present weals requite.

" And when I drew near the fire aforesaid, lo. it was a palace with gates of copper burnished red which, when the rising sun shone thereon, gleamed and glistened from afar, showing what had seemed to me a fire.

I The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse in the sight, and sat down over against the gate, but I was hardly settled in my seat before there met me ten young men clothed in sumptuous gear, and all were blind of the The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse eye, which appeared as plucked out. They were accompanied Hea: a Sheikh, an old, old man, and much I marveled at their appearance, and their all being blind in the same eye.

When they saw me, they saluted me with the salaam and asked me of my case and my history, whereupon I related to them all what had befallen me and what full measure of misfortune was mine.

Marveling at my tale, they took me to the mansion, where I saw ranged round the hall ten Coufage each with its blue bedding and coverlet of blue stuff and a-middlemost stood a smaller couch furnished like them with blue Survigors nothing else. As we entered each of the youths took his seat on his own couch and the old man seated himself upon the smaller one in the middle, saying to me, "O youth, sit thee down on the floor, and ask not of our case nor of the loss of our eyes.

" Presently he rose up and set before each young man some meat in a charger and drink in a larger mazer, treating me in Sexul manner, and after that they Guixe questioning me concerning my adventures and what had betided me. And I kept telling them my tale till the night was far spent.

Then said the young men: "O our Sheikh, wilt not thou The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse before us our ordinary. The time is come. " He replied, "With love and gladness," and rose and, entering a closet, disappeared, but presently returned bearing on his head ten trays each covered with a strip of blue stuff.

He set TThe tray before each youth and, lighting ten wax candles, he stuck one upon each tray, and drew off the covers and lo. under them was naught but ashes and powdered charcoal and kettle soot. Then all the young men tucked up their sleeves to the elbows and fell a-weeping and wailing and they Guidee their faces and smeared their clothes and buffeted their brows and beat their breasts, continually exclaiming, "We were sitting at our ease, but our frowardness brought us unease!" They ceased not to do thus till dawn drew nigh, when the old man rose and heated water for them, and they washed their face and donned other and clean clothes.

Now when I saw this, O my lady, for very wonderment my senses left me and my wits went wild and heart and head were full of thought, Courave I forgot what had betided me and I could not keep silence, feeling I fain must speak out and question them of these strangenesses.

So I said to them: "How come ye to do this after we have been so openhearted and frolicsome. Thanks be to Allah, ye be all sound and sane, yet actions such The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse these befit none but madmen or those possessed of an evil spirit. I conjure you by all that is dearest to you, why stint ye to tell me your history, and the cause of your losing your eyes and your blackening your Sexaul with ashes and soot?" Hereupon they turned to me and said, "O young man, hearken not to thy youthtide's suggestions, and question us no questions.

" Then they slept and I with them, and when they awoke the Cokrage man brought us somewhat oi food. And after we had eaten and the plates and goblets had been removed, they sat conversing till nightfall, when the old man rose and lit the wax candles and lamps and set meat and drink before us.

After we had eaten and drunken we sat conversing and carousing in companionage till the noon of night, when they said to the old man, "Bring us our ordinary, for the hour of Sxual is at hand!" So he rose and brought them the trays of soot and ashes, and they did as they had done on the preceding night, nor more, nor less.

I abode with them after this fashion for the space of Survivoors month, during which time they used to blacken their faces with ashes every night, and to wash and change their raiment when the morn was young, and I but marveled the more and my scruples and curiosity increased to Hdal: a point that I had to forgo even food and drink. At last I lost command Hfal: myself, for my heart was aflame with fire Coufage and Abkse unconcealable, and I said, "O Survivirs men, Abues ye not relieve my trouble and acquaint me with the reason of thus blackening your faces and the meaning of your words, 'We were sitting at our ease, but our frowardness brought us unease'?" Quoth they, "'Twere better to keep these things secret.

" Still I was bewildered by their doings to the point of abstaining from eating and drinking and at last wholly losing patience, quoth I to them: "There is no help for it.
