Trying Hard to Understand

Keenan had never actually visited a museum. Whether it was because he’d just never gotten the time to do so or because he’d never had the interest to do so, he couldn’t say. He’d been to libraries – loads of them. However, he’d never seen a museum.

He found, since visiting the Vault of Taliesin with Phillip, that he was actually interested in the sorts of things museums stored. This museum, like the Vault, didn’t just hold normal treasures. It was packed with magical artifacts and enchanted objects. In fact, the collection of such things here was second only to the Vault.

Each room represented a different country in the world of Ekudo. Keenan was staring at a tapestry. It depicted a man, his cloaks and hair swirling around in wind that didn’t seem to effect the trees around him. He had a fierce expression on his face. For some reason, he looked very familiar.

“Can I help ya with something?” a voice said.

Keenan looked over his shoulder at the speaker. He was taller than Keenan, but within the average for a Shynonian. His hair was a silvery color that Keenan could tell had nothing to do with age. His eyes were a vibrant blue. They were wide with surprise and locked on Keenan’s face.

“I’m supposed to meet the director of museum collections?” he said. Then, he tilted his head to one side, trying to figure out why the man was staring at him with such a shocked expression. “Something wrong?”

“Ya look…” he said, blinking. Then, he shook his head. “Ya know, what? Never mind. Dr. Upvalley is just over here.”

Keenan nodded frowning slightly. What, in the name of all that was, had upset the man so greatly? “Thank you,” he said, following the stranger.
