Renata resided within the town's abandoned houses. There were none other capable of hiding or escaping trouble as well as her. Though not skill to boast about, it was still a technique which ensured her survival. Unfortunately, it did not serve her this time as the grocer was able to track her down. Yet the sight of her defeated face was all too pitiful for him to bear, and he reluctantly let her be. As her body was weak, such was how she was able to avoid physical harm.
Renata is an Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Polish, Czech, Croatian and Slovene feminine given name; derived from masculine name Renatus of Latin origin which means "born again", where natus is "born". In Francophone countries there is a cognate names feminine Renée and masculine René; the feminine form Renate is also common in Dutch and German language-speaking countries. In some Spanish speaking countries, the name has taken on a different meaning: as a contraction for Rey ("king") and Nato ("birth"), it has come to mean "born a king."
