The only friend Floyd ever had was a teen named Robert, they were the same age- 16 years old. They both met while trying to steal bread from the bakery and in that instant they knew they were always meant to work together. Robert using his magic to distract the merchants and Floyd to steal the merchandise. Since then they have been best of friends.
However, Floyd knew Robert’s destiny was to be a powerful mage that is why Floyd wanted to become an apprentice. Thus, he could be Robert apprentice. So after reading a lot of book Floyd discover how he could become an apprentice. He explained to Robert the journey that he had to take and what he had to do, he had to go see the mage elders. That is the only way he knows the mages will allow him to become an apprentice, by persuading the mage elders. They were the ones who would help him achieve his goal.
Robert explained how long, hard and dangerous the journey ahead would be, but Floyd was determined. Determined to prove to his village that he is no ordinary boy, to show the village he is not worthless. Robert agreed and said that he will also come on the journey with Floyd- mainly to protect him Robert thought to himself.
Floyd excitedly packed his bag for the treacherous journey ahead-he knew exactly what he needed to pack. The bags all packed and ready to leave on their epic expedition, Floyd gathering the map to decide which way they would go to the iced blue mountain- at the very top the mage elders. He pointed northeast, climbing onto his horse he heard his name being called, it was the crazy old hag who would tell him boring old stories when he was a little boy.
He turned to Robert and told him to hurry getting on the horse – Robert was not much of a horse rider. Riding as fast they could trying to escape from the grasp of the crazy hag. Robert and Floyd reach a road with a fallen tree Floyd turned to Robert and asked, “Could you move this with your magic?” Robert replies “sure can!” Robert jumps off his horse, Floyd heard a sudden chant and with a sudden gust of wind, the tree went flying as far as the eye could see Robert leapt back on his horse with a little smirk and started riding.
The daylight started to fade so Floyd starts search for some place to settle so they can rest their eyes for the night, their starting to become weary so they stopped and went next to a huge tree, made some soup and laid down- and fell asleep. The morning sun started to arise when Floyd heard something rustling in the bushes, he woke Robert with a lap of his foot, as they both approached the bush the rustling stopped.
They peaked through the bush to only realise that is was a goblin - small in size powerful in magic, goblins haven’t been seen since the rise and fall of queen Hellsvill- everybody called her the queen of hell. The goblin sound like is was cursing them but Robert and Floyd did not understand Ghukliak- the goblin language, trying to gesture to the goblin that they are not here to hurt it. The goblin shot a fireball from its hand, Robert and Floyd jumped back, Robert turned and asked, “What should we do?” Floyd replied with “grab it”.
Looking at Floyd with concern they both leaped at the Goblin, pinning it to the ground Robert whispering a chant putting it to sleep. Robert turned to Floyd and shouted “ARE YOU CRAZY?” while he shook with fear, what are we going to do now stated Robert. Floyd with a big grin says, “We’re going to ask the goblin questions”, “but how, we do not speak its language,” says Robert. “We’ll get inside it head and learn the language, and not only that you’ll be able to understand the language you would be able to use bigger and better spells and control the elements better.” Floyd says
