You are Zamuri, a 14 year old boy and trainee in the art of swordplay. Your adopted father, an elderly gentleman old enough to be your grandfather, has been passing his wisdom down to you since childhood.
He is a kind man, but a strict disciplinarian. You spend several hours a day practicing, or performing tedious chores.
Still, life is calm and peaceful. Soon, however, this peace will be broken. Your life will change forever.
But for a moment, enjoy your life as it is.
