Am ready to take up the task and save my parent ” Marvel turned in amusement and he welcomed ajadi’s word with a beautiful grin on his face.. “So when shall we commence the training? ” ajadi asked “There will be no training from me” he replied “No training from you ? ” scoffed ajadi! “So why am I here in the first place ” “Yes ” “But how can I learn on my own when I don’t have any power of my own, am not a sorcerer,nor a wizard nor a warlord. Do you expect me to start doing stupid things on my own” ajadi screamed at the top of his voice.. “I know, but I won’t be the one to teach you that. Am not made to be a teacher, but only one person can do that” “And who could that be? Is he a human or a gods like you?” “When you get to him, you shall know ” marvel paused and started picking his way back in, he halt when he got to the entrance of the building and said to ajadi “get yourself prepared, we shall be on our way first thing tomorrow morning, be ready ” and he walked straight in.

Episode 15 & 16
(the teacher)
 The moon was a crescent, thin and sharp as the blade of a knife. A pale sun rose and set and rose again. Red leaves whispered in the wind. Dark clouds filled the skies and turned to storms. Lightning flashed and thunder rumbled, and birds with black hands and bright blue eyes shuffled round a cleft in the hillside but could not enter. Under the hill, the ajadi sat upon a weirwood throne, staring at the stony egg rolling within his hands.. “It’s time for lesson “Lazar threw him a sword and he quickly dropped the egg and followed him.. The sword shone in the sun as the sword received a lighting message from the sun, ‘Not bad!’ shouted lazar. he pulled out his sword.. “Fight me” he screamed! Ajadi stood there without responding, then Lazar stretch his sword and started to fight him. Ajadi fell to the ground after he sluggishly blocked a few strike. ‘But you’ll have to fight harder than that, or you’ll die!’ laughed Lazar . Lazar was really strong and fast when it comes to using the sword. He was fourteen years old when he had already started fighting war like a strong young man. He liked fighting but he didn’t like losing. Ajadi got up quickly and took up his sword again. ‘That’s better,’ laughed Lazar . The young prince smiled. Then suddenly he felt lazar’s sword, hard, on his arm. ‘Dead again!’ laughed Sir lazar. Ajadi started to fight again. His face was angry now. ‘Careful! Careful! Fight with your head, don’t fight with your heart, boy!’ shouted lazar. The knight wanted to make ajadi a good fighter. But he also wanted to teach him the Old Code. Lazar and all the kings, princes and knights before him were Knights of the Old Code. For thousands of years kings were kind to peasants and knights helped kings. This was the Old Code. “Life was good, and everybody in the country was happy during your father’s raign . But after everything started to change and the peasants were angry, when his brother dethroned him.. I didn’t like this, and for 16 year, this has been my home.” .. He loved ajadi and he wanted the boy to remember the Old Code all his life. After the sword-fighting lesson, Lazar and ajadi sat down. ‘Never turn your back to somebody when you fight, young man! Why can’t you remember that?’ he quarried.. ” but no one thought me about that” ajadi replied.. “Hmmm! OK follow me” he stood up and walked down the mountain, ajadi sluggishly followed him until he finally stopped.. “Sit, close your eyes and listen, observe and feel the air as it passes the message to you” he said as he sat and shut his eyes while he crossed his leg folding him palm together . Ajadi quickly joined him and he followed his instructions.. after waiting for some time, the only message he could hear was the noisy touch of the harsh breeze within his ears.. Ajadi stood up out of annoyance “this is impossible, how can I hear for the air which doesn’t have mouth? If you don’t want to teach me just let me know, instead of playing all dose tricky tricks on me” “Listen ajadi! The only way you can save your parents is when you believe in yourself, the egg with you can only come back to life if you are willing to make that happen, no one can do that other than you. very soon, you will get along with the message, all you need is to calm your mind and listen ” Lazar explained. “OK! So what do I do now?” “Nothing for now, you don’t need loose faith ,keep training, the power lives within you.. very soon you will have to bring the dragon back to life and when it happens, Your powers will be back, now it’s time for you to face your destiny ” Lazar stood up and walked down to the cave
