A little taste

I wrote before that Dave and I got an idea for a story from watching Trevor play. I just wanted to give a little taste of what I've been working on....tell me what you think!

The Wizard laughed softly. “My name is Rupin.”
“Rupin,” Trevor repeated. “Your house is hidden but I knew it was here. Have I been here before?”
Rupin gazed around the room and then settled his eyes on Trevor. He looked at the boy thoughtfully. “You have been here before, but you must not have remembered. You have been here many times.”
Trevor looked out the window. “Is this a town? This place, Evarb?”
“Yes. The castle and my home are on the edge of town. If you go back out on the road covered with trees and walk the way you came you will pass the castle and then a mile up will be the town. There are many good things in Evarb, but there are also many dangers.”
“What kind of dangers?”
Rupin shook his head. “I can not tell you that now. You will find out soon enough.”
Trevor sat for a moment and when Rupin did not say anything more he took that as an indication that he was supposed to leave. Trevor stood and started for the door. Before he walked back outside he turned and asked, “How do I know what to do once I get to town?”
Rupin smiled, his eyes crinkling at the corners. “You will know just as you knew how to find the door in the castle and how you knew how to find my cottage.”

It sounds good so far. It must be fun to do something like this with your sweetheart.

Sounds like a fun story. BTW, Dr. Blank is with Desert Valley Peds. I saw Dr. Downey's name there too. Good to know that I can see him there if I need to see a different doc.
