“I don’t exactly know what you are, or why you belong to me,” said Mik Fausten, “but I’m going to shine you up and take you with me tomorrow.” The dragon pendant swung in front of his face as he held it by the chain above his head. Its red ruby eyes twinkled and sparkled when it reflected the bedroom light.
Mik had always been an average boy growing up, despite the death of his parents at the age of ten. When he moved to Zido city to live with his aunt Brinnlee and Uncle Edmund, he found it hard to adapt at first. He came from Brindle town not too far from the city, but culturally it was miles away. Brindle town was only a modernised mining village. Only after getting the new shopping mall and additional residential areas did it become a town.
It wasn’t easy for Mik to adapt to his new life. Despite not knowing his aunt and uncle very well, they became his guardians soon after his parents passed away. It felt weird to him at first, especially sharing a room with his younger cousin Jace, who he also didn’t know too well. Soon, however, he grew to love them as he did his parents. Well, obviously not as much as his parents, but near enough.
He attended Sir Hugh Windsor High School, where he gained a passing mark in history, maths and social studies. However, his school studies weren’t going to bring him closer to achieving his life ambition of joining the Raymerian military, or the military intelligence department to be exact.
