Name: The Lucky One by Vincent Pascaud

When she was chosen to depart for her first hunt, she was crippled with fear. She went on the tracks of a White Lion, trying to hide her tears. The Lion found them first, and soon the four hunters were three, and then two. Paralysed in terror, she saw the terrible beast jumping towards her, roaring. She closed her eyes and screamed, throwing desperately her Founding Stone randomly. When she opened her eyes, the lion was dying, suffocating in his own blood. Her remaining partner took her back to the settlement like she was a champion, and told the tale of her mighty throw. No one knew she didn’t even looked where she was throwing. She had no idea what she was doing, and yet she was now considered a powerful warrior by her peers. Since then, she’s been chosen for nearly every hunt. And to her own astonishment, she kept surviving. Yet, she was still throwing hits in the dark. She just kept living, out of sheer luck, and she’s still being praised for her prowesses. No one knows the truth about her luck. And she’s still afraid.
