Otho has a job guarding a cave for a wizard. Working for a wizard can be a scary thing, but that doesn't mean that you won't ever get bored doing your job. Just when he starts thinking he needs a career change, a visitor arrives. More
Wizards live a long time and collect a lot of stuff. They're the hoarders of fantasy literature. However, that doesn't mean that they just collect junk. Due to reasons explained later, they don't always keep their valuable possessions where they actually live. This is the story of Otho who is employed to guard a cave where a wizard's valuable objects are kept. Otho has been guarding the same cave for many years, and has become bored as no one has ever tried to enter. This changes when Prince Landon arrives on a quest to retrieve what is inside the cave.
This is also the first of my short stories that feature Prince Landon.
