“Mouse?”

“I’m here Pops”

“Closer, don’t have much time left, I have a lot to get out” the much too frail old man grunts.

The room is dim. Light flickering about the room from different colored lanterns placed all around. Every corner, shelf, chair, and table piled high with boxes, rolled maps and scrolls, books, tools and odd devices.

“Pops, don’t talk like that, save your strength. I’ll go out and find something that will give you more time.” The man called Mouse says with a worried frown as he rubs a cold rag across his grandfather’s brow.

“No!” Pops bellows “No! never, never take more time” his voice from boom to shallow whispers.

“Mouse, I’ve seen so much, I’ve walked barefoot on the beaches of Catan. I’ve out witted terrible… terrible Jinns.” A quick shudder moves through the old man’s body.

A smile growing on his leathery face “I rode rails on great steel engines coughing up smoke like a dragon from the Lonely Mountain” His face once again deadly serious “Ey’ boy I’ve run across far too many wyrms, I’ve lost count of the friends I’ve lost to their fangs and magics. Never trust em.”

Mouse looking at the old man, the only father he has ever known. “Pops you taught me everything I know; No Dragon will ever get the best of me” determined “Please just rest”

“Time, no Time, never take more time…” his words trailing off into mumbles and grunts with no meaning.

In a quick burst, the old man’s eyes light up with memory and a purpose “Take this!” handing Mouse a small brown and gold bag he was clutching in his calloused hand, a faint glow of symbols, glyphs, words, and numbers shift and flow across the seamless material.

Mouse holding the bag in his hand, he knows what this action means. Tears start to stream down his cheeks. “Pops? I’m going to do you proud, I’m a Johnson and I know what that means for the WORLDS, I’m going to do everything just the way you taught me, everything”

The old man patting Mouse’s hand and the bag. “I hope I did right by right boy, this ain’t no easy life, I guess none of them are, find your dad, find my son, find Alonzo” Regret followed by slowing breaths “Looked everywhere, I never gave up, you know I never gave Up?”

“I know Pops” trying to hold back more tears “I know, you did do right by me”

“Closer” his voice a faint whisper

Mouse leaning in close. Mere inches from the old man’s face.

“Mouse to find your father you need to travel past the know, toward the new, before you find your father you have to find out WHAT'S IN THE BOX?”

The old man inhales and never lets that last sweet breath go. Pops Johnson’s had taken his final turn.

This is was the end of Pops.

This is also the beginning of the Adventures of Mouse Johnson!
