The wizened old man’s shoes made a soft scoffing sound as he ambled to the window. He looked out `of his tower towards the bright moon that appeared to be just on the other side of the valley. After surviving six worlds and living through so many millennia he had lost count, the sight of a harvest moon still made him feel full of energy.

 

The old man smiled, “I love nights where the illusion makes the moon look close enough you could almost touch it.”

 

A soft mewling sound behind him answered back. The man turned to see Clow looming over the fire at the back of the small chamber. He was a tall boy at over eight foot high and at only nine years old the giant was not even close to his full height. He motioned the boy to approach the center of the room. He began shuffling toward the center himself while building up some energy. He took a little longer than Clow reaching the center. His bones had never felt so old. In the center of the room he snapped his fingers. The dust in the room started swirling in the air and slowly small wooden pieces started forming out of the dust. With another motion of his hands the pieces coalesced into a sturdy chair. The chair plopped down ungracefully onto the center of the floor.

 

The old man sighed, “I use to be so much better with this stuff Clow but that is neither here nor now. Come and listen. I feel the stirring of viii magic on the wind tonight my boy. When you leave here take a letter to Hanzar and tell him to follow the directions perfectly. We must choose tonight whether to follow the path of the villain or of the hero. In either case we will unite this world before The True Night arrives. I both fear and hope that the magic is trying to tell the world that my old friend once again walks with us. I must make plans for her host if that is the case. If it is not her but the other one that is loose, may the creator preserve our souls?”
