It took him an hour. , The afternoon sun was high in the sky as he made his way to Glimmershade village to deal with the goblins. , As he approached the road, he noticed a trading caravan heading from Vassia City, so he walked up to it. , When the caravan guards saw a demi-human boy walk out of the forest, they all got weary and kept an eye on him. , The guard in charge stepped forward and asked. , ”Boy what are you doing wandering the forest, it’s dangerous for a child of your age to be out here.” , Archer looked up at the man, he was tall, very tall. With brown hair and blue eyes, he had a massive beard. , He was wearing heavy leather armor that covered most of his body, Archer saw a sword on his back and a shield strapped to his left arm. , Two people walked over to the man, a short black man with brown hair and black eyes, who was wearing a scouts outfit. , The second was a tall beautiful blonde-haired woman with a massive chest and a pair of purple eyes. , She was dressed in a black witch’s outfit, she was the one who spoke as they stopped. , ”Ephrain why are we stopping?” , That’s when she spotted Archer standing by the edge of the road and her mouth dropped open when she saw his white horns, scales, and those alluring violet eyes. , She mumbled to herself. ”The boy is a dragon, a white one at that.” , The two men heard what she said and stared at the boy who was looking back at them with a blank look. , The black-haired man spoke up. , ”Rowana, how in the world did you come to figure out this kid is a dragon, the things haven’t been seen in years, and now you’re telling us that there’s one standing in front of us.” , She turned her head to the man and spoke. , ”Because you’re stupid and haven’t studied anything in your life Ludo you can’t see what I can, you see the boy’s white horns and scales?” , Ludo looked at the boy and nodded. , ”They are bending at different angles then point straight up, his scales are a glittering white, the old dragon king had the same scales and horns but black hair instead of the boys white.” , The two men nodded their heads after listening to her explanation. , Archer heard what the woman said and got curious so he asked her as he turned his head towards the witch. , ”You know too much, did you learn that all from books?” , The witch looked at the white-haired boy with sparkling eyes. , ”Can I examine you please, it’s not every day you come across a dragon.” , ”I’ve met many dragon-kin people and also studied wyverns in the wild and captivity.” , Before she could finish, Archer turned on his heels and started walking off without saying a word. , The three people saw the boy just turn to walk south, before he could get further Ephrain called out to him. , ”Boy, where are you traveling to?” , He stopped walking and turned back to the man before answering him. , ”I’m on a quest to Glimmershade to clear some goblins, you?” , Rowana spoke up before Ephrain could. , ”We are headed to Shavano city on an escort mission, we pass through Glimmershade, how about you join us, it’s dangerous on the roads, and things are getting worse” , She got a look on her face, probably remembering she hasn’t introduced themselves yet. , ”I was rude for not asking your name, mine is Rowana, the big guy over there is Ephrain and the angry-looking black guy is Ludo, what’s yours?” , ”Archer, nice to meet you Rowana, and yes I’ll join you” 𝘪.𝑐ℴ𝘮, Minutes later the caravan started moving again and headed down the road. , While they were traveling Rowana kept trying to get close to Archer to examine him. , But he was having none of it and told her to stop talking about him being a dragon or to leave him alone. , She stopped asking him about being a dragon and instead asked him where he was from. , ”So where are you from Archer?” , He thought for a second before telling her. ., ”I’ve lived in Vassia my whole life, only started traveling recently.” , Rowana nodded before asking something else. , ”Are you going to the magic academy when you turn 14, or are you going to continue adventuring?” , Archer thought long and hard about the question, he would like to go but no one would send him, he was practically homeless at the moment. , The woman got a worried look in her voice when he didn’t answer for a few minutes. , ”No, no one will recommend me.” , As she was about to reply, Archer heard a whistling sound heading straight for the group. , Ephrain roared as arrows started hitting the caravan guard’s shields. , ”AMBUSH, Form up and defend the caravan.” , 20 bandits surrounded the caravan and the guards all prepared for a hard fight. , Archer noticed an arrow flying toward Rowana.
