“Allys”she turned around to answer the person who called her. There was no one there.

“That’s odd.” She thaught “ I swear I heard someone”

Allys dismissed the thought and continued on the reason she had come there. She needed to buy nessesities for the house . things that involved grain and starches that were running low on.

Alyss arrived at mone’s stand. Mone was a middle aged ornry sort of man who sold grain at a cheap price. He was always kind to Alyss and sold her the grain at an even cheaper price than it already was. Maybe it was the fact that Alyss was an orphan and people always take peity on orphans. At least the best kind of people do and Mone just so happened to be one of those people.

“ Mone?” she asked “ have you noticed how every one seems upset.”

“why. Yes I have m’lady” He answered “ I believe it is because of him” Mone pointed to a small bearded man sitting on a bench off the road “ you see he’s a mysterios man he is. He’s a scorcerer some say”

“a sorcerer” she wondered “ is that really true?”

“probebly not. Just some rumour some kids made up. Still its weird that’s a fire emblem he’s wearing. It’s the emblem of the lost king.”

Alyss stood in awe. The king disapeard 13 years ago. Alyss was only 3 then. The king of fire as they called them had faught in a mighty war against the evil one, Annema.

tha man had a bit if a celtic accent and when he undid his cloak Alyss for the first time saw what he realy looked like.His hair was a dark brown with a few streeks of grey. He seamed around the age of 50 and he held himself with a proper manner.
