r, Jackson awoke and sat up in bed, looking around as the beginning streams of sunlight began peeking through the trees and into the small clearing; he flung the blankets off him and exited the cottage, heading to a small hut that served as an outhouse on the other side of the clearing.

She was awoken by the door closing as she heard the sounds of small birds chirping happily outside the cottage. She turned to the bed and saw it empty and smiled as she slowly stood up, groaning as her bones ached, and slowly walked into the kitchenette and opened the refrigerator, pulling out eggs and milk.

After relieving himself, the young boy exited the tiny building, ran over to a large basin with water, rinsed his hands off, and splashed his face before running inside and sitting down at the table, ”Good morning, Grandma! ” He chirped.

”Good morning, Jax! Breakfast is almost ready! ” She said with a smile as she finished cooking the eggs on a flame she had created before placing them on a small plate and putting it in front of the boy with a glass of milk.

”Youll need to finish your chores early this morning; we need to go to the market and buy another stone to power the fridge. ” She explained as she sat down with a mug of coffee.

”Okay, Grandma! ” He said with a smile as he began to eat his breakfast. The elderly woman smiled and finished her coffee as she stood up and patted his head as she walked by him, heading outside and stretching her body with a loud groan.

”Growing old is rough… ” She muttered to herself, slowly walking into the clearing around the house toward a massive rock near the edge of the thicket of trees.

She sat down and crossed her legs as she closed her eyes, resting the back of her palms against her knees. A pale, white, viscous-like energy emerged from her body as the rock began vibrating.

Jackson finished his breakfast and burst out of the cottage, running as he quickly stopped, digging his heels into the ground and skidding to a halt as he stared over at his grandmother.

Her eyes sprung open, glossed over, and brightly emanating the same aura coming from her body. The massive rock immediately halted as it settled again into the dirt, and the aura vanished, and her eyes returned to normal.

She groaned as she slid off the rock, adjusting her thick leather dress and jacket, dusting herself off as she approached Jackson, ”The Mana Stone has been ordered, you need to hurry along now and finish your chores, or we
e going to be late! ” She wagged her finger, scolding him.

Jacksons eyes went wide as he ran around the house to the small fenced-in pen with the singular cow and chickens. He quickly picked up the bucket outside the enclosure and hopped the fence as he attended to his chores.

After he finished, he quickly ran to the water trough once more and dunked his entire upper body into it before shaking wildly and running to the front of the house and hopping into the carriage his grandmother was sitting on behind a singular mule.

”Hyah! ” She said and flicked the reins as they began their journey to the closest settlement, Duskgate.
