Jack was steaming mad. He had just had yet another fight with his mom about wasting food and was heading to the old tree house in the woods. They were always fighting about wasting food. He saw where she was coming from. They were pretty tight on cash, but if she was so intent on not wasting food why didn’t she eat it. He was sitting at the foot of the abandoned tree house, drawing a dragon in the sand, when he suddenly felt the overwhelming need to go deeper into the woods.
He knew he shouldn’t go. There were dangerous animals like wolves and bears in the woods, but he had to. Some hidden force was calling to him. He had to go regardless of the dangers. The force was too strong. Resistance was futile.
He got up and went. He went deeper and deeper into the woods. Crossing over bridges and going through thick bundles of trees and bushes. He kept going until he came upon an old house. The house looked abandoned, but it couldn’t have been. There was smoke coming out of the chimney.
It was almost nighttime and he was very thirsty. Maybe the person inside would be nice enough to give him some water and let him stay the night, but then again maybe they would be a psychotic serial killer on the run from the cops. He went up to the door and knocked anyway. The door creaked open to reveal an old man sitting in a rocking chair by a fireplace.
Above the fire was a black cauldron. He didn’t seem to notice that Jack had entered. The old man just sat there rocking back and forth. Jack cleared his throat to sort of announce his presence. The old man turned around and told Jack to come in and sit down. He went over and sat in a chair also near the fire.

The house will be painted dark green with dark cherry front ... be in Minnesota. Minnesota has beautiful lakes with great houses around them. If it would happen to rain ... of the most important details about a house is the location. My house will be located where it is quiet ...
They both sat in silence for a while. Then the old man took a bright blue stone out of the cauldron. He took a piece of cloth out of his pocket and wrapped it around the stone. He told Jack to take it, that it would keep him safe on his quest as he gave it to him. Jack asked him what quest he was talking about and that he wasn’t on a quest. The old man told him he was and to go, there was much to be done before the morning.
Jack figured that he was no longer welcome in the house and left. He was going to go home but couldn’t remember which way he came from. He looked around for a little then decided he would go towards the setting sun. He walked for a very long time thinking he might be going the wrong way because he didn’t remember any of the landmarks. Then he finally got to a bridge he thought he remembered going over. He went to cross the rotting rope bridge.
As soon as he got to the middle the bridge fell. Jack was plunged into the ice cold water and pulled downstream. He struggled to get out of the water but the current was too strong. He sensed an upcoming waterfall and used the last of his strength but it was not enough to pull himself out of the stream.
He flew over the water fall and passed out. He had no idea how long he was out but when he woke up it was daytime and he was on dry land. It looked as if someone or something had dragged him out of the water. Then he realized that he was in a completely different world than before. There were little fairies flying around his head. He wondered where he was for a while just laying there.
Then he realized he must be dreaming. In a little while he would wake up in his own bed, but if he was dreaming then why did he hurt so much. Some of the little fairies had grouped around his head. He tried to wave them away and one of them bit him. A searing pain went all the way through his left arm from his finger tips to his shoulder. He decided it was definitely not a dream.
The fairies helped him up and told him to go and defeat the beast. He asked them what beast but they would not tell him. He left fearing if he stayed too long they would bite him again. His left arm was already half paralyzed and swelling up. He got out of the meadow and was standing up agent a tree looking at the bite. Then an arrow went into the tree right above his head.

There were three archers standing in front of him. They asked him why he was here. He told them he did not know why he was here or how he got here. Then you shall die they told him and then got their arrows ready to shoot him. They shot at him and missed twice but the third one hit him in the leg. He fell and they gathered around him in and looked down at him as he writhed in pain.
They talked amongst themselves and decided to stab him one last time to make sure he died as opposed to leaving him there to suffer and die. As one of them took out an arrow to deliver the final blow he other the arrow out of his leg an stabbed him in the stomach. The guy fell over back. The other archer yelled at him how dare you then pulled out an arrow and stabbed him in the left shoulder right as Jack took the arrow he had and stabbed him in the side. With both of his partners dead on the ground the last one ran away. he lay there on the ground for a while knowing he should go get help or he would die.
He finally gathered the strength he needed and got up. He wondered around looking for a place to go to get help or someone who could help him. He finally stumbled upon a fountain with a purple colored liquid. He went over to it and drank from it. Then he passed out again. When he came to he was lying in a soft bed with a cold wet cloth on his forehead.
After a long time of lying on the bed disoriented a beautiful woman with long golden hair walked in wearing a long light blue robe. She came over to the bed and told him that she found him passed out by the fountain. The pain in his shoulder was gone but his arm was still swelled up and unable to move. She put some cream on the bite and introduced herself as Sabrina.
She asked him what a human as doing in the land of the fairies. He told her he was supposedly on some sort of quest but he had not the slightest idea of what it was. She said that he was probably the one who was supposed to defeat the evil wizard. He asked her if she could help him because she knew more about it than he did. She laughed and after much begging by him agreed that she would help him but he had to rest until his arm was healed. She told him fairy bites are poisonous and it should have been treated sooner.

After he was healed she gave him directions a map and some money and sent him on his way. After he traveled for a half a day he came upon a town. He was hungry and saw a good looking restaurant so he went in to get some thing to eat. After he ate he saw a shop that sold weapons and armor. He figured he could use a weapon if he was going to defeat an evil wizard so he went in to see what they had. As he was looking at the array of weapons the shop keeper came out and asked if he could help with anything.
He asked what their most powerful weapon they had was. The shop keeper said he only wanted the most powerful weapon he could handle. The shopkeeper offered him a sword to try. Jack tried it and was a natural. The shopkeeper was amazed at his skill and offered him a job there training people to use weapons. He offered him board food and an hourly rate of 14 rules an hour.
He accepted the job. After a few days of working there a new client showed up intent on learning the art of the sword. He introduced himself as jimmy. As Jack is dueling him Jimmy gets a little too serious.
He is the toughest adversary jack has ever encountered. After only a few minutes Jimmy had him pinned to the floor with a sword at his neck. Jack tells him that he is defiantly not at beginner level. He told him that his name was not jimmy but Xan dol the evil wizard and that he had come to see how strong the so called hero was and he didn’t think he had anything to worry about. Even though he had a great disadvantage he overpowered the wizard thrusting a dagger into his chest right into his heart. Then he realized that he did not own a dagger.
It seemed to have come from nowhere. Then he saw the stone the old man had given him embedded in the handle. He was mystified. After defeating the wizard he felt homesick and decided he would take the money he saved and go back home to live a normal life again. He packed up his things, told his boss he was quitting, and was off to tell Sabrina that he had defeated the wizard and ask her how to get back to his own world.

he got to Sabrina’s house and told her he had defeated the wizard and she congratulated him. He asked her how to get home. She told him he had to climb back up the rocks on the side of the waterfall he fell down. She gave him some of the water from the fountain and said it would rejuvenate anything that was dying. He went to the cliff and thought about all he was leaving behind and what he was going back to. Everyone in the magical world treated him like a hero.
Everyone in the normal world just thought of him as a poor dirty worthless thing. He didn’t want to go but his homesickness was so overwhelming that he decided to go back home to his parents and leave all this behind him. The climb was steep and he didn’t want to have to climb it. He was terrified of heights. He spent hours trying to muster up the courage to climb up it. He decided to use the dagger to help him climb.
When he stuck the dagger into the side if the cliff steps emerged out of the cliff. at first he was startled and did not want to go up them for fear that they would give out and he would fall down. He finally started to climb the stairs. As he was climbing the stairs one of them crumbled underneath him.
he tumbled down the stairs about halfway and the little fairies worked together and stopped him form falling down all the way. He sat there for a minute waiting for the stars to leave his eyes and thanked the fairies for helping him. They offered to stay by him until he reached the top just in case it happened again. He said he would be very grateful if they did.
He climbed the rest of the way to the top without incident. He thanked the fairies and they went back down leaving him to find his way back alone. He found his way to the tree house after many hours of being lost in the woods. He figured it was about noon and decided to go back to his house after he left the dagger at the tree house but brought the water with him. He went back to his home and his mother was so happy to see him.
He asked her where his dad was and she told him sadly that he was sick in bed and that he had been very sick for the past two days. Jack went in, his mother followed him and stood in the doorway. He gave his dad the special water and told him he should be better soon. His dad asked him what it was and he told him not to worry about that and to just get better. His mom then asked him where he got it and he said she wouldn’t believe him if he told her.

Jack was home and his mother treated him better than she did before he left. His dad had gotten better and so had his life. Jack was now thankful for what he had rather that sorry for what he didn’t have.
