“I was thinking... maybe we could... take the next step forward.”
Sorey and Mikleo had no idea what this decision would set into motion, as a mysterious baby is found in front of Elysia’s gates after a lightning storm.

Mikleo could already feel his senses coming back to him. Judging from their current interactions, this human must be some sort of hermit or mountain dweller. Someone who lived separated from the rest of civilized society.
It didn't require much, however, for his attention to come back to the human, seeming to admire his looks. Or cleaning his face for him. He had to thank him somehow, for saving his life, and...
The man scooted even closer, just a headspace away from Mikleo's, in order to wipe the other side of his face.
And then Mikleo saw him, the light directly above him catching the features of the other man...
He was... He was... (The first thing he registered in his mind with a light gasp were those piercing, emerald eyes, staring right back into his...)
... More of a boy, than a man. A young man. Around Mikleo's age.
