Chapter 4

Walking to a nearby large tree, I took out my Quest Journal, which will have all of my quests in them. To my surprise, I did have a quest there for me. The quest said to deliver some letter, (which I believe I have), to this guy named Private Stillson at Unicorn Way gate. So, I put my journal away in my backpack, and I off am to wherever Unicorn Way is.

Right now, the Commons is packed with tons and tons of wizards; some new, some returning, and some that I guess, from the looks of things are just lingering about doing nothing. Just hanging out with friends, talking, chatting, and laughing. I walk up to the pond to realize that some wizards are actually wading in the pond! Why on earth would they do that? Their clothes would get all wet if they did that! There was a young girl, about the same age as me, who was just getting out of the pond, with her clothes wet, but apparently she didn't mind getting her clothes wet.

What a strange place, I thought to myself as I wondered along on the path on my right. But yet, it's magical, so why should it be strange? I kept thinking as I walked when I suddenly, I tripped and fell onto the curb.

"Are you okay, little lass? Asked a gruff old voice. I looked up to see an old man with an orange beard? What the . . .? That's like impossible, I say to myself. The man has dark blue eyes, with one eye wide open and the other eye looks tired. He also has a brown stick to help him support himself when standing. The man seems to be wearing blue trousers, a white long sleeved shirt, brown boots, a prospector's hat, and some kind of pack is on his back. I suspect that he is a prospector, and an old one my I add.

"Well, are you going to give me an answer, little miss?" he asked.

"Oh, sorry. I didn't know you were talking to me," I answered back not knowing if I should trust him or not.

"Of course, I was talking to yah. You were the girl that fell on the curb, right?"

I nodded my head slowly. I didn't want to be embarrassed on my first day here.

"Course you were! I was here to witness it! So," he came over to where I was standing and looked at me, "did you hurt anything?" I looked over myself. There were no broken bones, as I can feel and there are no cuts or bruises, so I told the prospector,

"No, I didn't hurt myself."

"That's good," he answered back and started to walk back towards the little cart full of wizards' clothing.

"Hey, wait!" I shouted as I walked over to him.

"Little miss lassie, you don't have to shout, I can hear yah perfectly fine," he told me has he got settled into his usually position of where he stood.

"Sorry," I apologized.

"No need to apologize, now what can I do far yah?"

"I was wondering if you could tell me where to find Unicorn Way?"

"Ah, Unicorn way. Just starting here at Wizard City eh?" he asked with a smile.

"Yah, I am, so I don't really know my way around hear yet," I admitted. "But soon I will."

"No problem, I get questions like this all the time. Now, all you have to do is walk across the bridge to you left and then follow golden yellow brick path to your right. Finally, you'll see a standing guard guarding the entrance. You'll want to talk to him, if I'm correct," the old prospector told me.

"Thanks," as I started walking away.

"Like I told yah, no problem. By the way, call my Prospector Zeke," as he took off his prospector's hat and bowed towards me.

"I'm Ryan Griffinheart, but just call me Ryan," I smiled to Zeke.

"Nice to meet you Ryan," Zeke spoke to me as he shook my hand.

"You too," I told him, "but I should probably get going. I don't want Private Stillson waiting for me."

"You're right. Later little miss lassie!" Zeke shouted as I started walking towards Unicorn Way.

Hey! I hope you enjoyed this chapter. Sorry, that it was sort of short. I'll try to make the other chapters longer. Oh and also if you see any spelling mistakes or grammar, I'll be grateful if you could tell me. I did a skim of the chapter, so there shouldn't be, but if there is for some reason, just tell me. Thanks! Enjoy!
