"LAUDER! I will ask you again, where is my SON?"
"Lord Ross, you have no need to yell at me. I can hear you perfectly fine at a normal tone. Besides, yelling will only make your cough worse." It had been two days since the disappearance of Trevor and his friends, and the castle was in an uproar.
"Don't you have a crystal ball or something you can look at to see where he is?"
"My lord, crystal balls are only for fake magicians who have no other way of making money beyond scamming the populace. I have a seeing-glass. There is a substantial difference between the two. Unfortunately, he is in a carefully guarded area that I am having trouble figuring out how to get around it. You should not strain yourself, as it has only been one day since his disappearance. Should your son come to any harm, you would instinctively know immediately. Such is the bond between parents and children."
