    Harmonia Glorious Pentageon (Harmony)
    Pillion – Village of Prosperity

    Harmony heard a knock at the door. She picked up a small cloth and wiped the dust off of her hands, she straightened her bright red hat, and made her way to the door. Opening it, she saw a young girl standing there. Well, she thought, time to meet the locals.

    "Come on in, Child. This is a shop, there's no need to knock. All are welcome here." Harmony said with a little flourish.

    "My name is Harmony, and I am the owner of this shop. Can I assume that you are here about the help wanted sign? Before we get started, can you read and write and do your numbers?" Harmony smiled her warmest most welcoming smile to the young girl who looked terrified. She was ever thankful for the hat she was wearing, which she had made many years earlier, and translated languages instantly. She had created it as part of her training, and it was the symbol of her trade.

    Irony, it's like goldy and bronzy only it's made out of iron.

    Delia darted in when the woman opened the door, and looked around nervously. Now that she was here, she was scared of going thru with this... almost as scared as she was of not going thru with this. So she took a deep breath, and said quickly, before she could decide to just leave... "Thank you. I'm not a girl; I'm sixteen, and know how to work hard. Yes, I'm here about the job. Yes, I can read, write and do numbers... well, as well as anyone can around here if you don't live in the castle. I hope that's good enough?"

    She looked at the woman uncertainly, hoping fervently that her smile would stay as nice as it was. If she didn't get this job, she didn't know how she could start changing things like they so badly needed to be changed.

    As Harmony listened to the young girl speak, she liked what she heard. She could read, write and was willing to speak up. This girl would do. Reaching into her Pockets, she pulled out two items, which she placed carefully into an open palm, and presented to the young girl...lady, standing before her.

    Harmony then gestured to the eager applicant and said, "I'm happy with what I have heard so far. If you look in my hands, you will see two items."

    "The first is wrapped in a small cloth, and is a friend stone. It allows you to enter the back rooms of the shop behind the main counter. You need to have this with you all the time in order to get to the back area of the store, so if you lose it, I need to know right away. The stone will bind to the first person who touches it, so it will only work for you."

    "The second stone is a cleansing stone. If you add it to a pot of water with food in it, it will make the food safe to eat, and the water safe to drink. I don't know how much to pay you yet, so you can use this for the next day or so as payment until I figure it out. It will work ten (10) times before the charm fades and it doesn't work anymore. You will know because the runes you see on the stone will vanish. The stone will remove poison and make rotten food safe to eat. It might not taste good, but it won't hurt you."

    "So if you accept, then you need to tell me your name, and take the stones. I need a Store Clerk to help me run things here and I have a good feeling about you." Harmony finishes with a small wave to the items in her hard. She stopped speaking, smiled again and waited for the young lady to decide.

    "Oh, I'm sorry. I'm Delia... Soren's daughter."

    She hesitantly took the stones. She'd never seen magic before, not even on her trip with her Aunt. She carefully tucked them into her belt pouch and tied the pouch tightly shut. then she paused, and tucked the pouch inside her skirt, instead of outside, where it had been hanging. These stones sounded too precious to keep in an obvious pouch.

    "Thank you for giving me this chance. I'll try my very best to help you any way I can." Delia smiled hopefully.

    It took Luxia a while to get to the Village of Prosperity. She was in no rush, no rush at all. Her long life had thought her patience and, even if she was looking forward to the next chapter in her life, she knew things were already rolling and that she didn’t have to put any pressure for her future to unravel.

    As she entered the Village of Prosperity, she looked at the poor houses and got hit by the stench of poverty. It hadn’t changed one bit since that one time she visited it. A few men were sleeping on the floor, drowning in their own filth, reeking of alcohol. It was obvious they hadn’t had a good meal in ages, and alcohol seemed to be the only escape they could get from such a harsh life. She pitied them, but she didn’t stop.

    A man stared at her holding his breath. She looked so bright and it contrasted so much with this dark town. Of course she stood out. That was exactly what Liam feared the most.

    In a mix of surprise and anticipation, the man moved closer to her and took a small knife out of his shredded pocket. He showed it to her doing his best to look in control.

    “Give me… give me whatever you’re carrying!” He waved the knife with little certainty.

    Luxia looked at him completely unafraid and continued her way as if he was nothing.

    “Stop!,” the man said. “Give me your richness or I’ll kill you.”

    Luxia stopped for a second and tilted her head just as she was looking at him. He was filthy, hungry, in pain. His eyes lacked any sense of hope. His bravery was just a façade.

    “Are you happy?” she asked.

    “Wha…?” The man wasn’t expecting such a question.

    “I asked you if you were happy.”

    The man froze for a second and then, he burst into a laughter.

    “Happy? Are you serious? I have nothing! No food, no family, no nothing’! And you ask me if I’m happy?”

    Impulsively, the man waved the knife and tried to cut her in the arm, but his little weapon melted as it touched her skin.

    “I’m sorry you’re not happy,” she said in response, not really caring about the attempt against her life. If your life is miserable, there’s no point, right?”

    “Wha…?” Once again the man was speechless.

    He would have said something else, but she put her hand on his shoulder and he became ashes.

    “May you find in death the peace you never found in life,” she said as she continued walking through the dark streets of Prosperity Village.
