“Here I go.” I breathed as I started to walk down the path away from the castle. I started thinking that I should take Gragan’s advice and at least get a new bag and some potions that I know that Grag can’t make quite yet due to the lack of gatherers for this new season.
“Mistele.” I hear a calling behind me and I glanced to see that Bill was chasing me down with my bag and the hourglass in both hands. I never seen another pair of feet run faster to find me as I could see the dust stir behind him while his steps pounded the ground.
“Bill! What are you doing here?” I yelped as he slid to a stop making the dust gather in front of me. I started coughing up a storm while Bill yelped as he fell to the ground.
“I was supposed to give you this and say not to forget me.” Bill chimed and smiled widely showing all of his teeth. I felt like I was supposed to protect him all of a sudden instead of vice versa. I silently got the bag from the ground and wrapped it over my shoulders trying to think the best way to say it to him that I don’t want him to fallow after what happened to the last person that was my partner. I still remember his name, Macel.
“Bill, I don’t think it is best if you go with me.” I sighed while I started to move to the market that is just outside of the kingdom. Bill’s eyes slowly became big and watery.
“I’m serious Bill, I don’t think it would be best. I am trying not to hurt your feelings…” I tried to reason but then Bill started to cry tears of sorrow and I rolled my eyes knowing none of this is going to help me at all.
“I get it… you are too good to have someone around, I get it but Gragan sent me to protect you since you forgot this.” Bill chimed and held the glass in his hands in a way that I was amazed that I had forgotten the most important thing that I should with me.
“I thought I grabbed my sack!” I exclaimed as I must had looked like a fool as I swerved around my body like a pup trying to grab its tail. Bill started to chuckle a little as I straightened up.
“Apparently not my lady.” Bill chuckled and I glared at him with dagger like eyes thinking that he should had not shown my flaws as I quickly grabbed the bag from his shoulders and placed it on my own.
“Thank you Bill.” I growled thinking that I might want to leave him now before he manages to make me look like a bigger fool.
“No problem, you know that I should go with you since I do have magical abilities and that might come in handy when it comes to reading that glass or yours. Plus Grag sent me just in case there is something I could do to help you.” Bill chimed and once he got to the last sentence he was inches from my face to where I could smell his breath of what he had as a snack.
“Fine.” I breathed wondering if Grag trusts him with me there has to be something that I am completely missing.
“That is wonderful! I get to go on a quest with the best and brightest Myter in the lands!” Bill’s voice started to get extremely high in range where it gave me a headache.
“Yes! Yes! I said you can come, just don’t do what you just did there with your voice.” I yelled and pushed him away from being inches away from my face to several feet.
“Splendid! This is going to be wonderful! We are going to... oh fight some dragons go on long walks on a several beaches and save you from death’s grip itself! Bill was way too excited for me as I ignored him and went into town which I bet was the opposite way that Bill was thinking of going.
“Wait, where are we going?” Bill chimed as he raced to ketch up with me.
“Into town I noticed that I need some potions for this and possibly some new armor.” I chimed knowing that I have the King’s treasury at my disposable which means that if I go in a reasonable amount and not go for the most expensive thing I see, other than potions from the shop that Grag can’t make himself due to the generation gap within the technology of potion making.
“Into town? Man you really trust Gragan. But why are we going to a potion shop instead of going to Gragan?” Bill asked and I explained to him before I stomped off into the village with Bill behind me.
