"What is that amulet you wear around your neck?""Oh, my star? It is an heirloom of my family's. I have heard, in stories told by my grandmother, that it has been in the family for over two hundred years, and it is always passed onto the second child. There is some sort of legend behind it, or so Grandmother always said, but Papa would never let her tell us.""Legend? Perhaps by now it would be only a legend, but once that amulet you wear around your neck belonged to a great sorceress, and, if you believe the legend, one day, she will show the owner of it how to harness the power in it, to defeat a great evil that will come to the land. Oh, don'k look so scared, child. I doubt anything like what she had to stand up to will ever come to pass through this world again. After all, it is only a legend."
