Paroth-So whats the complication?
Young Theron-Theres a giant that has taken residence in the grove where the flute is located.It attacks anything that draws near.Ive been sending mercenaries and adventurers alike to try to take that thing down,but most have perished or fled.
Arnatule-Hmmm well that is a problem.I had to drive off a giant or two in my youth defending Glowvale.
Paroth-Wait..theres giants that attack Glowvale?
Young Theron-Im actually from there.Its been fifty years since ive visited.Im surprised that that Keepr Mikalnas passed on.
Arnatule's eyes widen
Arnatule-Wait...I know you!
Young Theron-Yes,I know.The young paleskin that left with his father to adventure the lands.So..will you help?
Arnatule-Hmm well i dont supose youd come with us paleskin?
Young Theron-My names Theron,but yes.Its time I join in and see how big this giant is.Just keep me alive for your reward.

Serinah-Ugh...I hope that flute was worth it.
Young Theron-Youll see.Now that the giants out the way...watch this.
-Young Theron takes out a lute and begins to play-
Young Theron[singing]-Goddes of song my love and my heart,the giant is slain so please fear not.Your champion is here after so long,so sing for me dear how the angels sing songs.
-Young Theron motions them to remain quiet.suddely a beautiful voice sings back and replies.-

Young Theron[singing]-My love here i come,and ive brought guests.The ones who put that nasty beast to rest.Heart of your hero brave and strong,here i come to hold you all day long
Goddess Siren-Theron my hero here i am.
-the Goddess Siren appears in front of them holding a flute.the two kiss passionately-

-Serinah and Arnatule gasp.Goddess siren smiles.-
Paroth-So wait shes a Goddess in love with you?Shes been safegaurding the flute?I think youve got some explaining to do Theron!
-camera cuts to various pictures as Goddess Siren speaks-
Goddes Siren-Dont worry yourself.Theron.Ill explain it.My sister is Nira,but technically im a Goddess whom was exiled for not being a useful Goddess.My sister urged me to be an elemental Goddess,but i refused.I took in the beautiful sounds that mortals call music.Thus i was sealed away inside my flute by Zeus.But then in my dispair Theron found me by accident and we fell in love.Hes been my gaurdian...my champion.When someone plays my flute it forces me to sing.I dont mind,but i rather do it myself so i dont harm someone.
Young Theron smiles as he holds her hand.camera cuts to Serinah crying tears of joy
Serinah-Aww thats...thats so romantic!I cant even describe it!
Goddes Siren-I see your songs preistess....you wish you had something like myself and Theron,but you only need to choose to accept the changes of your pepole.
Serinah-Aw youre just being silly.Besides prestiesses of my pepole-
Goddess Siren-are no longer relavant and will soon follow your new gods. Remain faithful to them.If i know my sister Nira shed encourage it.
Paroth-Um..excuse me,im a bit confused here.
Serinah smacks Paroths helment
Serinah-Nevermind...Its a girl thing.
Arnatule shakes his head
Arnatule-So about our payment theron?
Young Theron smiles and looks to Goddess Siren
Young Theron-Honey please give these pepole a big bag of gold.enough to last them a season of traveling.
Goddess Siren-Ok.but i tire of hiding in the forest.Can you take me with you?
Young Theron-Ok..well just this once,but stick to the tavrens and sing ok?
Goddes Srien smiles estaticly as she plays her flute and a branch falls off of a tree and turns to pure gold.
Godess Siren-There are beifits to being natures sister as well as a Goddess of bards.Hehe.

king stonesaw.-this is indeed troubling news.please tell me what you intend to do.
theron [narrating]it took time explaining the situation to the high king....

balgon looks at the heroes and shrugs his shoulders.
balgon-very well my king.ill investigate this myself.just be sure that theres a few extra gaurds nearby if i get too rowdy.have the travelers join my forces at the gate.summon the other generals as well.its gonna be a huge army so we should greet them the same.
king stonesaw-in the meantime arnatule i request to have our scribes study your sword.if what you claim is true there may be a link between the sword and the temple.the rest of you,do what balgon asks of you.
