Come close as I spin you a tale.
On the the 4th Paragon Age. We start our story with a young lad named Waeron Kirnsons. He was young barely eighteen summers old He lived with his family near the borders due to how large the kingdom was living so far out tended to be dangerous not because of the other kingdoms it is more due bandits and the amount of animals out there who would prey on some young kids especially during winter season. In the winter season countless mothers mourn the deaths of their sons or daughter.
It was only recently they got more guards to protect the village from bandits and some hungry wolves and bears. They even started constructing a wooden wall to help them defend.
Even with walls made out of wood it should be more then enough to discourage outsiders to attack a village.
Our young lad Waeron was luckily one of the people soon to be assigned to help build the wall. His mother Zirria of course hopes he doesnt get the task to go out and gather materials and hopes her little boy is more on the construction team. But as Fate would have it he got assigned to the gathering squad. It may be due to his rather insufficient building experience unlike the other boys of the village who helped their fathers with the farm and some of the newer homes.
Waeron on the other hand wasnt disappointed. He seemed quite glad since he alwaya preffered chopping wood like his old Pa Kirn
Who once told that he chopped down a great oakwood in one swing.
Waeron himself tried doing so many times but everytime he needed more then one swing... up to 50 swings at times if not more. Great Oakwoods are no simple task to chop down which makes them very valuable as a wood source since they are durable, big and very versitale. If its long lasting fires or foundations for new homes it was useful.
Waeron after being assigned got his first job with his squad. Most of them were his age and they had 2 adult men help them in case something happened. They departed but do not fret they have to return multiple times since their sleds can only carry so much materials by the end of the day they would do at least 5 tours if not more or less depending in the distabce and the young adults themself before it break into dawn.
Waeron was very enthusiastic as well as rich on stamina as some would say. Not only did he chop down the most trees he helped another of his fellows push their sleds while actually helping that fellow on his back due to an unfortunate landing of a tree on his leg.
The two men were very impressed with what he was capable of and wondered what type of man his father then is.
This gathering went on for a while on day five everything seemed normal as usual aside some small injuried but this time no big ones like at the first day.
They ran into a pack of very odd looking wolves.
The two guard told them to push the sleds faster and to make haste to the village.
Everyone grabbed the sleds and made quick haste. Well all aside our lad Waeron here
You see Waeron didnt felt fear seeing those wolves, quite the opposite he saw how one of the guards quickly impaled one on the head with his spear. Waeron couldn't believe his own eyes he barely saw the guard or that wolf move and it was over same with the other guard eventhough it was the guard who sometimes helped chopping down trees with his own battle axe he was very agile.
He decided to stay and watch and saw that one of the guards got injured as well the moment he got off killing another wolf. The guard with the spear seemed to be disappoibted in himself but the guard with the axe smiled saying its over soon.
As he swung his axe he cut down 2 trees by accident but got stopped by the 3rd. The trees fell on the wolves forcing them to retreat as the guard with the axe laughed heartily and soon the one with the spear as well.
Waeron now knew he has to make haste or else they might notice him so he started running to where the group went.
He was laughing and amazed by those two not only getting rid of those wolves so quickly but how they did it fascinated him.
As he arrived at the village gate no one seemed to notice he just arrived or was gone by that matter or well almost no one as he feld a hand on his shoulder and a laugh too familiar.
