I still remember the day I met that stranger. I was living on the streets, abounded by my parents just 2 months earlier I had resorted to pickpocket people who passed by me to survive. That was what I was doing when I first saw him. He was about 6 or 7 feet tall, had an elegant cane and a hat over his face. I learned earlier that the rich were the perfect targets for pickpocketing, so I ever so sneakily snuck up to him and slip my hand in his pocket, grabbed something, and fled to safety. After I got to my safe place, I got a good look at my loot. It was a crystal, the type you would wear around your neck or rubbish to me because it wouldn’t help me, a street rat. I was about to throw it into a storm drain when it started to glow dimly. This caused me to get a closer look at it. As I examined it I didn’t noticed that someone had snuck up behind until I felt him put his hand on my shoulder. I turned around and saw that the stranger had followed me to my place. “I’m sorry,” I said, fearing for my life, ”I didn’t mean to.” “It’s okay,” he said, “in fact I am going to make a deal with you.” “What do you mean?” I asked, really confused. “I will let you keep that if you do one thing for me, is that ok with you?” He said, his tone calm. “Ok then,” I said, scared, “what is it you want me to do?” “I want you to hold the end of my cane until I say so, ok?” he asked. I nodded and did what he said and the moment that I placed my hand on his cane, he said, “In your hand, take this Key. So long as you have the makings, then through this simple act of taking, its wielder you shall one day be. And you will find me, friend—no ocean will contain you then. No more borders around, or below, or above, so long as you champion the ones you love,” And with that said a small flash of light came from the cane. This startled me and I dropped it on the ground. “What just happened?” I asked, freaked out. “Nothing,” he said, starting to stand up, “I just chose you to be successor.” Seeing the confusion on my face he chuckled and said, “you will understand one day but for now, I would recommend that you stay here because I think your luck is about to change.” And with that he walked off.
2 hours later, police came and took me into custody and since then my life had changed for the better.
