I decided to visit the cave before going with father as Ma last word was about that, what is so important that I need to see it...

Father lend me a horse so that I can go to the cave, problem is there is no cave...

I decided to go back till suddenly a bright light shine bright behind me

"YOUNG CHILD.... WHY HAVE YOU COME TO THIS PLACE SPEAK NOW OR PERISH"

 

...

I was speechless as the being...

it was like nothing I ever seen before

A flying book is talking to me now...

A glowing flying book...

"I am send by my mother... she said that I need to took something from here... she is a witch..."

"I RECALL NOTHING OF SUCH KIND"

The ground started to shake

"CHILD... PERISH NOW"

before she could kill me, I yell

"my mother is dead..."

then the rumbling stop

"no... master... not her..."

 

...

I can’t do anything as the book took form into a human... a female...

I pat her head comforting her

"she died in my arm peacefully... she went to somewhere better now..."

"CHILD DONT YOU UNDERSTAND ITS ALL YOUR FAULT"

her eyes started to shine bright as she floats in the air

"IRIS IS NOW DEAD BECAUSE OF YOU..."

spears started to appear around her

"DIE NOW CHILD"

she said as spears are aimed at me

...

I thought to myself, what a shitty life I have not experiencing live at least once... what a freaking shitty life

I... i dont want to die yet

"good decision child"

a voice said in my head

"what a good resolution you have... a wizard must always have a strong resolution... a wizard must sacrifice his humanity for the greater good... child are you willing to sacrifice your humanity for power..."

 

...

without any hesitation is say

"aye"

"HAHAHAHA VERY GOOD CHILD VERY GOOD INDEED"

the moment I opened my eyes wind started to cover me

"CHILD WHAT KIND OF TRICKERY IS THIS.... IMPOSSIBLE IRIS WOULDN'T... HOW CAN YOU HAVE THAT ARTIFACT"

she said as she pointed my necklace

"POOR POOR CLIO STILL NAIVE INDEED... YOU STILL HAVE MUCH TO LEARN"

the necklace spoke...

"WHITE..."

"CLIO, DO YOU KNOW WHO IS THIS CHILD... THIS CHILD CARRY THE BLOOD OF IRIS... THIS IS HER CHILD..."

the moment "white" said that "Clio" calmed down

"I..."

 

she was speechless...

as I approach her she was shacking

"I... I’m sorry I... was just protecting the scrolls here I..."

for years, I have left in that shite hole but this is the only moment that I pity someone...

"my mother would be happy to know that you did this dedicated to protect the scrolls... she would be proud..."

out of the blue... Clio hugged me...

"I... im sorry young master..."

 

...

"wait what... young master?"

"it was Iris last order to me..."

"Clio... one day a child will venture to here, at that moment I will be likely dead... that child... will be your new master... farewell"

mother last order... it ache my heart... I have been with her for the longest time I can remembered yet I know nothing of her nor my father...

"Clio... show me the scrolls... a great evil is covering this land... I will stop it..."

she nodded opening a secret path revealing a cave...

I grabbed her hand as I entered the cave... unknowing what will await me in the future...
