My Epic Quests
Far away in a dreary landscape in a place called Washington, a little light was born. To save her from a life of hardship and woe she was gifted to a young couple and their daughter, to be whisked away to a life of freedom and beauty in the woodlands of Northern California.
Like a nymph, she grew up there amid the redwoods. Climbing trees, befriending the wildlife, learning not only how to survive, away from most of the rest of the civilized world, but also how to treat others with love and compassion.
She blossomed, growing smarter and brighter with each day until the time came to be set free into the world. There she found that life was not always so easy, nor so bright or free. For years she trudged through hardships, battling minions - until she realized the boss she really needed to beat.
She gathered her courage and broke through the barrier holding her back, bringing down the boss in the process, and was awarded quite handsomely in her progress. She moved onward and outward to other lands, where she would be met with other bosses. None ever quite so great or as important as that first.
To this day she continues to fight her battles with courage - always fighting the self doubt that had once led her into the dungeons of that first castle.
