The Quest

B. Mark

Hello, reader! It's a beautiful day, sun shining, birds singing and flowers blooming all around. Right in front of you stands a guy perched on a rock, gazing out into the horizon. He's young and handsome, evidently in the prime of his life. With black hair ruffled by the breeze, and his athletic build tensely held static, he looks like he could be a model. Or an actor. The young man, however, seems to be deep in thought, and occasionally sighs loudly.
That's Bob. He is about to embark on an epic quest to find....something. What is this something? He's not sure yet; all he knows is that he feels empty inside. You have been assigned as his sidekick on this mission, his mentor, his conscience. Maybe with your guidance he'll find what he's looking for! Let's walk over to him, shall we? Bob slowly turns as we approach him.
<b>Bob: Oh hello there! You must be the sidekick I heard about. Well, let's not waste any more time; we have got to reach our destination by nightfall, or else...</b>
...or else what? I didn't sign up for anything dangerous, did I?
Whoever heard of a 24-hour quest??
