The old man with the long gray beard sat with his back against a thick tree. His legs were tired, but his determination was still strong. His name was Agrak. He planned to rest here for just a few minutes, before proceeding on his journey. He still had a long way to go.

Agrak had a special ability. He could speak the language of the birds. Most birds seemed to recognize this, as if by instinct. So it didn't surprise him when a black bird swooped down and landed on his finger. The bird held a glowing pearl in its mouth.

"What have you there?" asked Agrak.
