The Story – Chapter 37
I crept forward.
So Fred the spider had disappeared with the trussed up troll leaving me here crouching in the grass staring at the smooshed green spot the troll had been hiding in. And something he left behind had caught my eye.
I dropped to my knees and leaned my face down as close to the object as possible. Ewww okay troll’s leave their icky smell behind them. I gagged. Covering my nose with my hand I reached out and picked the shiny thing up.
It was a little stone about the size of my little finger nail. It was like a light was inside of it because when I cupped it in my hand around it, it glowed and the skin around my palm was shiny with the light.
I tucked the little stone into my pocket. I’m not sure why I kept it. Something made me I guess or maybe I didn’t realise I had kept it, I don’t know… but it ended up proving very useful… But I don’t want to tell you too much, we haven’t gotten to that part of the story yet.
“Hey kid!” I heard Herman call out. I turned my head and saw the hunter leaning against the tower wall.
I huffed to myself. Kid? Really? He was calling me kid?
I climbed to my feet. “So fighting’s over huh?”
