Interview with Thorston
Q. Why did it take so long to create the stones of life ?
A. Well, you see, I had to find a way to survive, so I became a goathred.
After a While, I started practicing Alchemy, and making “gold”. From
then on, I started to prepare to create the stones of life.

do anything, besides serving people here and there for a few

Interview with Brother Wilfrid
What was your childhood dream that made you want to become a monk?
Wildfrid: Well Janet, as you can see i have always been a very short person. It was a song that i use to sing when i was little it was very inspiring. It goes like this: Your big im little my head only comes your middle but i say little guys can do big things too.
Was your main goal in life to find the book?
Wilfrid: Yes it was. It was all that i thought about. Questions like will i ever get it? How will i find Thorston? Things like that boggled my mind.
Why is it that when you ate the stone Sybil did not die?
Wilfrid: Well as you may see i am not any younger, but i am stronger. And the last stone was time nothing like magic or rememberance.
After finding and burying the book what did you do?
Wilfrid: I became a male model for elder men. Whos says you cant be old and stylish.
If thorston never stole the book without words what would you have done with your life?
I am glad he stole the book he took the book. My life has been a wonderful adventure. If he hadnt stole the book i would still be on the island.
1. Was it difficult working with a man you thought was dead?
-Yes, because with a man (who you think is dead) you never know the true answers that lie beneath.
2. Is it hard working with a person like Damian?
– In many ways it was hard working with Damian because he stole, argumented on everything and was very stubborn, but whenever he did help it was never turned down.
3. Did you enjoy going through the process where you were learning about the magic and the book without words, etc…?
– Well, I must admit, it was scary and frightening because you never knew what was going to happen next.
4. What was it like seeing Thorston of the grave, when you thought he was dead?
– Well of course it was extremely surprising because when you think someone is dead, you don’t expect them to come back to life.
5. What is your background relating to your parents?
– I was abondoned on the street and Thorston came to rescue me.
Interview with Sybil
1. How did it feel to run away from Master Thorston?
I felt as though I was finally free. But at the same time sad and frightened knowing I might meet my fate. But once I got out it was nerve racking. Master Thorston could have woken up at any moment to see his stone and book was gone. Well his servant too! And as you know that is just what he did.
2. Were you frightened when Master Thorston saw you in the grave yard?
I was very, very frightened. I thought I was going to die. Master was full of power while I had nothing to protect me. But then luckily Brother Wilfred came out of nowhere and took out Master Thorston. Thanks to him I am still alive.
3. How did it feel to see Mater Thorston die?
It was agonizing. Watching him die made me feel nauscious. He was normal for a second and then he began to shrivel like a raisin or prune. It reminded me of when a drop of water falls on a stove and it bubbles and soon disinigrates.
4. Now, how does it feel that Master Thorston is gone forever?
It feels GREAT! I can live my life free with Odo the goat in Italy. Together we enjoy life knowing we will never see that terrible so-called Master’s face again. It’s a wonderful feeling. Almost indescribable. All I can say is that I LOVE IT!!!
5. Where are you going to go now?
Well now I’m going to go to Italy with Odo. Actually I live there now. A carefree life. Just taking what life gives me, living life to the fullest because you never know what is going to happen next. Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.
