Elves, Trolls and Dragons are normal but hiding from view.

1: Glamour Spell

Glamour spell is a defence spell.

It makes the mind see, what it wants to see.

What is the most logical thing to see.

You walk by an old man, in old clothes and with a distracted look in his face.

He might just be a wizard, that forgot to change into civilian clothe, and used a spell to hide it.

Me, I just look like a thirteen year old kid, because I am a thirteen year old kid.

The big, smelly guy with no hair, that looks like he has not bath this year...

and the clothe seems dirty and smelly.

Well, It might just be the glamour spell, that makes people look away from him.

If (None-magic) Teen girls knew of this spell, they would love to use it.

Because You can use it to attract or dispel attention.

The Troll standing and knocking at my second story windows...

He uses it to dispel attention.

If You walked past him, he looks like a tall, obese man, that has never had a girl friend.

Me, I see Hokima, the Troll.

Well after ten seconds, I see him.

The time is three AM in the morning.

And my brain is still trying to remember, that dream I just woke from.

Something is banging at my window.

My second storie window.

I fall out of my bed, and draws my dagger.

My mum comes into the room, with a short sword.

She turns on the light and ask:

“Why is a troll knocking at your window, in the middle of the night.?”

I get up, from my crouch, and look at the troll.

I ask: “Hokima.?”

He say: “Human, Help.!”

I open the window, and says:

“I will be out in a second.”

Mum ask: “You know this guy.?”

I nod, while trying to get pants and shoes on.

I says: “Marry send us to help him.

He must have track me down.?”

Mum says: “Just take him walking, and try not to ruining the front of the house.”

I get dressed, and walks down to the door on the ground floor.

I have the dagger in my hand, but put it into the back holster in my jeans.

Mum would spank me, if I left the house without a weapon.

The troll can regenerate, and the dagger would only annoy him.

Even the Enchantment would not matter that much, to a troll of his size.

I exit the house, and meet Hokima.

He is in the back yard, and sits on the lawn.

I walk up to him, and says: “Hallo, Hokima.”

I am nearly face to chest with him.

I remember him small, the last time we meet, but then life and stuff got in to way.

He says: “Human Help.?”

I nod and says: “What can I help with.?”

He thinks for ten second, and then he says:

“Girl friend gone.”

I think: “Gone like dead, or just no longer your girl friend.”

He thinks for a few seconds, and then says:

“Girl friend not home.”

I smile and says: “She might just be out meeting other Trolls.?”

He says: “No. Not home for two full moons.”

I remember that tonight it half moon, and other creatures don't have calenders.

I ask: “So she had been missing for fifty days.?”

Hokima count on his fingers, and says:

“More than two full moons.”

Mum has also gotten dressed, and walks out into the back yard.

Hokima looks at her sword, and start to get up.

I stop mum and says: “Hokima. This is my mother.”

Hokima says: “Glowing sword.”

I say: “Mum. Better keep your distance.”

She says: “I will stay back, if You tell me what is going on.?”

I say: “Hokima's girlfriend is missing for two full moons.”

She smiles and says: “Has been missing.?”

I nod and says: “Sorry. I get troll speech on my mind.”

She says: “Troll don't go missing for two months. They stay at their lair or cave.”

Mum puts her sword on a chair behind the house.

She walks to Hokima, while showing her empty hands.

She says: “What is Your girlfriend's name.?”

He shake his head, and then says: “Jozala.”

Mum says: “It is summer break, and You might as well take this quest.

You never know where it leads.”

I says to Hokima: “I will help.

Wait here, and I will get my stuff.”

As we walk into the house I ask mum:

“Why does it always have to been at night, stuff happens.?”

Mum says: “Trolls can walk in the Sun, but they prefer travelling in the cold of the night.”

As she goes into her room, she says:

“Maybe also text the others.?”

I walk into my room, and find my equipment, and my phone.

I text both Izabella and Erich.

“Hokima need help to find his Girlfriend.

I am helping him. Text If you can help.”

I exit the house, with my back, and meet up with Hokima.

He says: “Girlfriend was mad at me.

And I gave her flowers. But flower died.”

We start walk toward his home, under the bridge, on the other side of the small mountain range.

It is an hour walk, more or less.

Hokima walks slowly, but his steps are like three times longer than mine.

I get two texts from Erich.

He is up for helping, and ask, 'Where to meet.'

I ask Hokima: “Where are we going.?”

Hokima says: “Get Brodruiz, to find smell of girlfriend.”

I ask: “And how is Brodruiz.?”

Hokima says:

“Pet Wyvern. He loves girlfriend.”

I ask him slowly: “So we go home to You, and get your pet Wyvern.?”

Hokima stops and think the sentence through.

Then he nods and says: “Yes. First home, and get Brodruiz.”

I text Erich: “We go to his home.”

A minute later Erich write: “Meet You there.”

We are walk across the bridge, when Erich shouts from the other side of the road.

He is on a green, military bike, with a camouflage coloured box in front of it.

We meet up on the other side of the bridge.

Just on top of Hokima's cave.

Hokima says: “Small human. You hide behind metal. I found other human instead.”

Erich smiles and says: “Yes. My home is behind a metal fence.”

I am a little perplexed, and says:

“Hokima. You wanted Erich and not me.?”

Hokima has to stand and think for some seconds.

Then he says to Erich: “Girlfriend is missing.”

Erich looks at me, and I say:

“She has been missing for the last two months.”

Hokima starts to walk down the path to his cave.

I say: “We get his pet Wyvern to track her with.”

Erich says: “He found You.?”

We walk after him, down to the cave.

The Sun is just about to come over the edge of the world, and the day is about to start.

I smile to Erich and says:

“Yes. It is fun to be a wizard.

When Trolls knock on your window, in the middle of the night.”

Erich smiles and says: “Just our lucky,that this it is summer, and not a school night.”

I ask: “And what about Izy.?

She never answered.?”

Erich turns his head away, and says:

“Her mum won't let her have her phone in the bed room at night.”

I says: “My mum has the same.

Hey, How do You know that, and not me.?”

We are at the wall, where Hokima lives.

There are some bottles, and a small burnout fire in front of the door.

Hokima walks into the door, and he's size goes down, to the size I remember him being.

We walk into his cavern, and Erich has the light on his cellphone, to guide us.

Hokima looks at the phone, with the light, but after a second, decide it is nothing dangerous.

We walk down to the pet pen.

We can hear Brodruiz, moving around in the darkness.

We come out of the door into his room.

The ten meter long wyvern is happy to see us.

Hokima makes Brodruiz breath fire, away from us.

Erich says: “We need fire protection, when we walk this beast.”

Hokima take off the collar of Brodruiz.

Brodruiz walks up to Erich and tries to cuttle with him. Erich tries to scratch the wyvern behind the ears. The wyvern likes it, and tries to roll on it back, and show his belly. I also tries to scratch it a little. Hokima says: “You find girlfriend. Sun is to hot for me.” Erich says: “So we have to walk a pet Wyvern in the full light of the day.?” Hokima stand for a few seconds and says: “Human think it is a big dog.. Glamour spell.” I say: “Marry told me about that. I asked how people ignore the magic world around them. She says: 'Sometime it is easier to ignore the weird stuff. A Glamour helps people to see the illusion.' ”

Erich says: “I am just happy, if they see a big dog, and not a tame alligator, on a leash.”
