Prologue

"What are we going to do with him Vincent?" My wife asked.

"I don't know yet. I was figuring we could leave him on Earth, under the care of humans. This way he wouldn't be in danger."

"Why would he be in danger here at home with us?"

"You know who my father and grandfather are. The fact that my brothers and I survived is a miracle."

"I don't know if I trust those earthlings. They have no magical essence. Will we ever see him again if he goes there?" She was worried. I could never resist her beautiful brown eyes before, but now I had to. No matter what I had to place him on Earth. Especially after what my grandfather told me.

"Well what else do we do? You know Nuvari can't take care of him just because of his status and Mikael doesn't care about me, he never did. Why do you think he didn't try to find me when I ran away with my brothers?"

"You don't know that."

"Yes I do. The reason I left is because of how little he cared about us. My brothers followed me because I was the smart one, I just… Don't know if that was one of the smarter things I've done…" Running away from my father was a bad idea, I just wasn't ready to accept it yet.

"Your decisions are your decisions and no one else's. So you're just going to have to live with what you're about to do. I can only hope though that we can find a good home for him." I nodded in silence and opened a portal. I stepped through the barrier. It was night time on Earth which is what I was hoping for. It was also very cold compared to the darkened hours of Endo Terra. Maybe leaving him here wasn't the best idea. No. It is better for him in the long run. The street was illuminated by the various lights spread out across the block; at least Endo Terra's moon was close enough to litter the streets with a bright light at night. These street lamps seemed unnatural; they didn't give off a warm glow or any form of calming, if anything it only made the darkness of the night worse. I again questioned my decision to leave my child here. I carried the baby in a wooden basket down the road. There was so little life here and the life that did exist contained no source of magic in it. I was really regretting my decision at this point, but I had to bear through it. I would be left without a son for the time, but I would hopefully reunite with him later. There were large houses that were separated by small spaces. It seemed so cramped to live on this planet and I wondered how anyone at all was able to. I was sensing the auras of everyone in them. I couldn't find a good house. There was one magical source near but I ignored it because of how small it was. I just figured it was an heirloom passed down through the generations. E-Terran's were put here before and I could only assume that they left footprints in there eve. Eventually I found the perfect home. I set the basket down and rang the doorbell several times. I ran down the street to a good hiding spot. I looked back to the door as the porch light turned on. A woman stepped out of the door onto her porch and looked around then looked down. I could barely make out the shock in her face with this dim lighting as she glanced upon the boy for the first time. She put her hand over her eyes as if to block out the little light that there was and looked all around, probably trying to find me. She stepped back into her home and after a moment came out with someone else. It must have been her husband. He looked about the same age as her and was just about as shocked as she was. He picked the basket up and went inside. The light shut off soon after that. The removal of the light left the starry night with an empty silence. I stood there for a moment remembering that this was what I had to do and there was no other option.

I opened another portal and returned home. The sky of Endo Terra looked darker when I returned. I took the short walk back to my house slowly and in silence. I didn't want to say anything for fear of turning back and making a huge mistake. When I got there Juniper looked at me. I nodded slowly in silence. She only looked down and started to cry a little.
