I never expected to be in this position so soon, saying goodbye to my son.
We had a total of thirteen entries before yesterday's deadline! I was excited to get this fantasy piece from author Daniel R Marvello! Here's a little more about it in his words: My piece is set in my fantasy world of Mundia, but it is not part of any current story. Your challenge gave me a chance to explore an issue that the mundane (non-magical) people of Mundia occasionally face: what happens when you discover that your son or daughter has the ability to work with magic? Sorcerers are generally shunned by the mundane population, so the discovery of magical sensitivity is both disappointing and frightening.
