And the young boy of marriageable age
Went forth into the valley
The valley of the fallen kings
With the needy brother
Or so he seems then
In search of his sick sister
Who lies dying in a cave

After days of walking
Stopping to hide from bandits
A time too many
They come upon the cave
But the sister is invisible
The needy brother isn’t a brother
But a lure
He goes mute
The sorceress appears
And the young boy of marriageable age's
Time is neigh.
