You see a boy who appears to be a young teen.
He is dirty and unkempt.
He looks as if he has been crying, but he sits up straight and looks sharp when he sees you.
Who are you and what do you want?
You realize the boy has a "sling" in hand.
You face the boy and tell him who you are.
So?
What makes you so special?
The last time I heard that one I fell off a prehistoric creature from "Eodon"!
Boy, this is the Avatar"!."
Upon my word he is!.
"He has come to help you!."

Then the boy narrows his eyes, studying you.
He slowly lowers his weapon, ready to act in case it's a trap.
You admire the boy's obvious experience in dealing with strangers.
You and "Spark" stare at each other.
He is not sure what to do.
Finally, he nods his head.
All right. "I believe you." "You do look like paintings I have seen. I am sorry."
Yes! the Avatar"?."
Spark asks.
What do you want?

name?.
I have always been called "Spark".

job?.
I have no job.
I am only fourteen, so I am just learning how to best help Father in the smiyour, he says, proudly.
But then he suddenly realizes something which terrifies him.
And now that Father is dead, I am an orphan!

smiyour?.
Father was the best blacksmith in "Britannia".
People were always coming from everywhere to get him to make this and that.

orphan?.
My mother died a long time ago.
I can just barely remember her.

murder?.
I cannot believe Father is dead.
And poor "Inamo", too.
It is so strange.
I dreamed it was happening.
Well, in a way.
"Last night I was having a nightmare about Father.
I dreamed that he screamed, and it woke me up. I looked around the house, but he was not in his bed.
I was wide awake, so I went out to find him."

Inamo?.
I am sure you canst find the man who killed Father!
do you want me to repeat everything I know about the murder?
What do you want to know about?

my story?.
All right.

chest?.
I am not sure if it's the same one, but I think I saw Father with a scroll just like the one in the chest one or two days ago.
I know he was making something special for someone.
I am fairly certain it was at his shop.
As for the medallion, he usually wore it.
I do not know why it was in the chest.
And the gold I have never seen so much gold in my life.
I cannot imagine why father had it.
You should try opening the chest.

my story?.
It is so strange.
I dreamed it was happening.
Well, in a way.
Last night I was having a nightmare about Father.
I dreamed that he screamed, and it woke me up.
I looked around the house, but he was not in his bed.
I was wide awake, so I went out to find him.

nightmare?.
I know it sounds witless, but...
I dreamed that a big red faced man was watching down on everything and...
He looked down...
And he noticed Father...
That is all I remember.

find?.
No, I did not find him.
At least, not right away.
But I did see something.

something?.
I was in front of the stables.
I saw a man and a wingless gargoyle running from behind the building.
They ran toward the dock.
Then I went inside and found...

Father?.
Spark's voice falters, and he begins to sob a little.

man?.
All I saw of him was that the man had a hook for a right hand.

gargoyle?.
I cannot tell one gargoyle from another.
I could not identify him, except that he had no wings.

hook?.
Wilt you go find "the Man with the Hook"?
Let me help you!
the boy pleads.
His tears cease, and his face takes on a determined, forceful look.
Take me with you!
Please!
I must avenge Father's death!
If you do not take me with you, I will follow you anyway!
The boy is all excited now.
"I am an expert with a slingshot!
I can strike sewer rats with almost every shot!
And I am small I do not eat much!
Please take me!
Please ask me to join you!"

Iolo whispers to you.
I do not know about taking a child on the road with us.
Suddenly, "Spark" lets his sling fly.
His target, a small fly hovering above "Iolo's" head, is smacked out of the air.
You laugh as "Iolo" yelps, jumps away, curses and runs his fingers through his hair.
Suddenly, "Spark" lets his sling fly.
His target, a small fly hovering above your head, is smacked out of the air.
I told you I am good!
May I join?
Hooray!
The boy leaps with delight.

leave?.
Fine.
The boy looks angry.
But I'll follow you anyway.
leave I know you wilt find that man.
I know you wilt find that man.

join
Tis about time you did ask again!
Hooray!
Well, on second thought, it looks like too big of a crowd.
I do not like crowds.

leave?.
Don't make me go!
Spark cries.
do you really want me to go?
He looks at you with puppy dog eyes.
Well, should I just wait here or do you want me to go home to "Trinsic"?

go home!?.
wait here wait here All right.
I shall wait here until you do return and ask me to rejoin.
Spark bows his head and murmurs, "Goodbye, then."
You wilt not be sorry!

Father?.
Father was the blacksmith.
I cannot believe that he has been murdered!
He had no enemies that I know of.
Unless it was "The Fellowship".

Fellowship?.
Well, at first they harassed Father and me when they came around asking us to join.
I suppose they do good things.
Many people like them.
Father eventually joined the group after he went to Britain and took one of their tests.

tests?.
I do not know anything about them.
I never took one.
Maybe you should ask the man at "the Fellowship" Branch.
Klog.

branch?.
The Fellowship has branches all over "Britannia".

Klog?.
He is the head of "the Fellowship" Branch here in "Trinsic".
He and Father got into an argument a week ago when "Klog" and two of his friends came over to talk with Father.

argument?.
I don't know what it was about.
Perhaps you should ask "Klog".

friends?.
"I do not remember what they look like.
I did not recognize them.
They were most likely some other members of The Fellowship""."""

key?.
That key opened my "Father's chest", did it not?
That looks like the key to "Father's chest".
I wondered where it was!
What key? do you have the key to "Father's chest"?
Where is it?

gold?.
The boy's eyes widen.
I had no idea that Father had that much money hidden away!
I suppose I could give it to you if you are going to look for those who killed my Father!

medallion?.
Father was a member of "The Fellowship".
I don't know why the medallion was in the chest he usually wore it.

scroll?.
I am not sure if it's the same one, but I think I saw Father with a scroll just like that one or two days ago.
I know he was making something special for someone.
I am fairly certain it was at his shop.

shop?.
It's in the southwest corner of town.

Inamo?.
He was a very nice gargoyle.
He helped Father a lot and did tasks in the stables.
I cannot think why anyone would want to kill him!

bye?.
All right, I will speak with you later.
