As supreme goddess of the world, she was patiently waiting for the day Amos would realize his potential. THE BAY OF CAVERNS The realm of Omain was a magnificent place. A dark-stoned castle overlooked a small city with tidy streets. High above, mountains whose tops were covered in perpetual snow encircled the kingdom. From these snowy tops, a wide and winding river cascaded down the slopes and ran directly to the center of town in the valley. There was also a small fishing seaport swarming with small and brightly colored boats.
Lowering his head as if in shame, Amos handed the stick to the lord. “Your will prevails,” he said. “Yet you should know that it’s with a heavy heart that I accept this money.

I’m not stupid,” he said before climbing up on his horse. In turn, the guards mounted their horses and the three men quickly disappeared. Thanks to his cunning, Amos had earned the money needed to go to the woods of Tarkasis as he had promised Crivannia, princess of the waters.

And he knew that only one explanation was possible: the Knights of Light had killed this boy’s parents.

I must find this boy and speak to him, Amos decided. With the mermaid’s trident slung across his shoulder, Amos entered the forest and followed the humanimal’s tracks.
