Kate tilted her head, "What did Papa tell you. I am so sorry about your home. I ask Papa if he will send his eyes and ears to recover and missing items or look for your household goods that might be resold. I understand your needing money. Papa would rather see you saved your money than having to spend it. Once you have a trade, Papa, will make arrangements to pay him back. He would rather you finished your training. Are you hurting? That mage, he always so hard on you?"

"I hate being in debt to anyone. Your father is not happy that I stole the eggs. I was told that it was a test to see if I can face my fears. That was the toughest instructor and he is the king's brother. You don't dare cross him for anything or any little doubt. I am sore but I do need to move about a bit so that I can get my muscles back in shape." Jacques spoke carefully.
"I need to take some papers to your father to read."

"I am so sorry you were an underling to that horrid man. I hear the King of the Southland is a tyrant. Not at all like King Atrious. It will be fun to raise the dragons. They take a long time to grow. We have room and know where to take them when they get bigger. I just hope Papa lets us keep them. The area around the lake is teeming with wildlife. He is a firm and fair man. not let Papa intimidate you. He tends to be overbearing. He should be either in the study or out inspecting his guards. I know this a difficult time for you. If you want your room more festive or would like my company I am here to cheer you up. After you see Papa can I here you play or we can bring decorations from the attic. I was just going to the attic. I will be up there. I will accompany you and find Papa for you."
Kate stood up and faced her new friend, "Things will get better. It is alright to be sad. Keeping busy will help. Never be alone when you're sad. Please seek me even if it is the middle of the night."
Kate was holding her sleeping baby dragon in her lap.When she stood the dragon opened one eye and yawned. "We are going back downstairs. We will get to the attic after we find Papa. You think you can find him?"

*Sleepytime now* Ally spoke with a yawn. She then closed her eyes.

"And they tend to sleep a lot." Jacques chuckled.
"Let's go find your father and let him read this letter."


Letter | +
Our dearest son,
I am writing this and sticking it into the chest for safe keeping. I hope to retrieve it without you knowing about it but should you find out about this letter one day, try to understand what we have done for you.
King Mideas is an evil king and no one would know more of his evilness than I. I hate to say that he is a distant relative of a higher rank than I. He is indeed quite rank in his affairs and I do mean that much.
I do hope that you do not get Professor Dumphrey. He is King Cernobog's half brother by another evil wife of his evil father..... Your mother will tell you of our lineage in her letter. This is one that you need to pay heed to. King Cernobog is wanting to kill off our lineage so that the good side of the family- our side of the family- will no longer exist. I am the last of out line except for you. I am in a serious postion of being King Cernobog's taste tester. One day I shall fall ill and not recover. I know my fate.

I am afraid that your fate will be with Professor Dumphrey. Be aware that he is cruel and will most likely take you on a year long hard journey with many perils in order to have an accident happen to you of which you are not to survive. Do be strong my son and when this happens, I hope with all of my heart that you will survive the hardest and cruelest testing ever created. If you are to survive this test, a miracle will have to happen. Then you will be worthy of a wonderful suit of armour that has been passed down to me from my father, your grandfather. Your grandfather died in a dragon battle and so did his dragon. I took the the skin from that dragon and tanned it. There is plenty to make a fine dragon armor with. DO this in memory of me and your grandfather. It is my last wish that you do in my memory.

In the corner of where The Kingdom of Obsidian, Linacrea amd Starryrose is a cabin on all three countries. In that cabin is a specific hiding place where there is a treasure trove of family treasures. Many things are stored there and the third packet is the deed to that property. Go there and retrieve your true inheritance.

Now many will say that there is nothing nothing there but if you sing that little ditty I taught you when you are young, it will appear.

I must close even though there is much more I wish to say. Mr Markum's package is there as well but he does not yet know that. If the seal to any of the three letters are broken, he forfeits his bonus. Please heed this directive. Now that I must go, I'll simply say I love you my son and fare thee well where ever you may fare.
Your father,
Sean Jacuques Draco.
PS If you ever need any help, go to Kingdom of Yoria. Ask for Lord Lyons. He is a just and fair man.

Kate held Ally to her chest as she stood up. She led Jacques downstairs. She was curious about the letter but did not say a word. She found her father as he was coming inside the back door. He had spoken with his officers and noticed the guards had been doubled. The mage knew it must have to do with Jacques. Lord Draco's reputation was horrible. Although he was south both lords and kings kept spies and assassins. It was no secret that even mages took on these duties. She felt safe under her father's protection.

Lyons passed the kitchen upon seeing the young lad and motioned him to his study, "I hope your feeling better. Come in I see you found your father's letter. I everything in order?"
He closed the door behind Jacques and lumbered to the fireplace. He lifted a long tavern pipe from the mantel and lit kindling from the fireplace. He took a drag. "Sit lad and tell me all your father said. We cannot be too complacent. I know King Draco's ambitions and we will be alert until we have word that he will stand down. I know you might think we are safe. As long as you are here, you will begin your training as soon as Kate releases you."

As both men entered the study, Kate padded to the kitchen for a try of gingerbread cookies and hot apple cider. She took the tray and made her way to the attic. She set down Ally and the tray on an old faded braided rug and rummaged through a box of her and her brothers old WinterFest decorations. She held a large snowglobe and would the brass key. She turned it over then set it on the floor beside Ally. "This is a snowglobe music box. It plays a carol. A pretty song. When you get bigger I will teach you to dance."
Kate sang to her is a soft soprano voice, " Dada la da. Into the meadow all covered with snow. La da lada la da. It a grand time of the year...."

Jacques quietly followed Kate down the stairs and saw Lord Lyons. He saw quite a few guards standing around for some reason.

"Yes and no, sir. My father predicted that I would get Professor Dumphrey and be taken on a year long treacherous trip. The trip was to get rid of me by the order of the King Medias.
Father says that if I go on this trip and somehow survive it......Well it is much easier if you read it sir. I have mixed feelings on trying to find it.

I'd like to go find it and since it has to do with magic of my voice, I will have to go. Lady Kate did mention that she would go with me." Jacques begin as he took out the letter and handed it to Lord Lyons. He did not say anymore of Kate's desire to go since he was unsure of letting her go with him.

"I know of the place for Father told me several times of a place that was full of magic if I would only sing the song there. I hope to find some of my family's treasures. Many things that I wish to have which I thought that we had to sell."

Lyons gently reached for the letter, unfolded it, and scanned over it and looked at Jacques intermittently. This is interesting it like a treasure map. Your father risked his life to be close to Midas. To retrieve your family belongings is dangerous. I need to ponder over this as I do not want either of to go without protection. It is important you recover all items and I am curious about what King Midas has in store next. I agree he has become too ambitious and if he and Lord Draco ever join forces we are at risk."
Lyons was about to hand the letter back and held it in mid-air, "May I keep this? I want to read it over and think how best to help you. How are you recovering? You do not leave the shire until fully recovered. I do want you to go into town and get traveling clothes. Do you think you could pass as a bard?"

Jacques smiled at the older man.
"yes very much like a treasure map. A very interesting one for I have not ever been there as far as I know. You may it for now. I do wish to have it back as a memento of my father's risks he did for me. My mother made a list of my relatives and how I fit in as the poor relations. I have not fully read it yet. The third is about my father's travels that did not get into his diary which is at this cabin.
As far as a bard, I used to sing. Perhaps I will pick up a simple instrument to learn like a Zither Lap Harp. My mother used to play one and it was fairly simple. Do I need to dress up like most bards? All flamboyant and such?"

Lyons looked interested in the Lad and this was important to them both. "Once I decide who will accompany you. You may have this letter back. Your father and mother loved you and they would want what belongs to you. They went to the trouble to give you this and you deserve your inheritance. This letter contains valuable information. I would not doubt your uncles will stop at nothing to get this. I will read it and give it back to you. Then you keep this hidden. Do not put magic on it or the Dark Lord might find it. Hide it among my books."

Lyons took another drag of his tavern pipe and poured them both a glass of apple brandy. He took a swig and offered a glass to Jacques, "Taste this. We make it here on the premises. I think a traveling bard would be perfect and no trousers, a jerkin or nice tunic with a simple vest. You need not be flashy. I do not want you a target for highwaymen. I will get you a one-horse cart and one of my men to accompany you. I know Kate's abilities would be useful. Besides she has a mage quest. I think she should go too. There is a mage guild outside your town. I trust you wield a blade. It is common when traveling to have weapons. Go into town and take Kate she can help you with shopping. Do not worry about cost. One day King Midas will pay."

Jacques took the offered brandy and leaned back into the chair that he was in. He swirled the brandy in the glass as he thought about what he was to say.
"I'd like to have a traveling desk where I can place my music and such. There are various trunks that act as a closet and drawers which would be handy. I will look about and get 2 wardrobes 1 for the bard and 1 for escorting Lady Kate around which I will leave here. " Jacques spoke then took a sip of the brandy. It burned his throat going down but wasn't unpleasant.
"I suppose that I will need to get used to drink alcohol. What do bards usually drink? Also, will it be all right to go shopping tomorrow? I'd like to pick out my weapons and Zither Lap Harp so I can practice them both. So much will need to be done before I'll be ready to be a bard......"

Lyons sat across from him and set his brandy on a side table, "Take what you need. You may purchase ant instrument you like and take what you minimally need. Travel as light as you can and do not attract thieves. Buy comfortable clothes and I will give you coin for traveling. In town, you may purchase on my account. Later we will talk about a trade for you and you can pay me back. I do not want to burden you now. You have enough on your mind. I need you clear-headed as you make this journey. I see you are not accostume to strong drink. Honey mead and fallow Kate's lead. She will bring her lute and you not need to drunk on ale. Most likely she will drink apple cider. We have a good cider house. Upon your return, you will need a ratty looking trunk with a nice inside. Keep magic to a minimum do not need other magic users sniffing you out. I would suggest alias and you're the son of a farmer. Keep your language plane."

"I shall remember what you have to say. I fear that I shall have to drink mulled cider. Perhaps it is good that I have lost a bit of weight since bards do not eat very heavily nor often. What kind of a wagon will you be providing us? Will it be an enclosed one? It would be the safest. I shall take but two trunks with me.
Is there a wizarding shop in town? I could possibly get my trunks there. There are void trunks which can hold much more than what you would think. I would then be able to take one. It would also hold a hidden room inside. Perhaps Kate would like one as well." Jacques spoke as he took another sip of his brandy.

"What kind of jobs do you have to offer? Guards could be one option providing that I become much better at fighting. I can balance books and other clerical tasks. Then if I can learn to be a bard, there is that option as well. I believe that I can easily become a bard because I have a knack in music. A talent that I was born with."

Lyons broke a smile, "There is time to discuss your trade. Much depends upon the success of your journey. A bards talent would be appreciated at Heidi's. Unless you prefer to employed at King Atrios's palace there is not much coin. You will have to travel to earn a living as a bard. Here in town you could a handsome wage keeping books. Why not do both books and bard. I believe Kate wants to have her own shop. You are a mage what magic do you like? The mages in the guild have many jobs soldiers, healers, teachers and traveling mages for hire."

He looked into the fire, "You'll put on more muscle as Kate will take care of you. You will not starve. If you want a covered wagon that would be most comfortable. It is also an easy target for highwaymen. Then you can carry more. A magical trunk. If you think that is best. You may purchase one. Kate knows how to travel light. But a cross-country journey would leave you to buy mementos. Alight, get what you need at the Curiosity Shop. It is the only magic shop short of going to mages at the guild castle. I would suggest going they may some errand along the way. I wish you luck and a pleasant journey. Might I suggest a fellow battle mage to accompany you?"
