CHAPTER 1



It was another beautiful spring day in the small village. The village was nested along a river known as the Tiger's Eye River, as the river was very narrow, but deep as it cut its way from the mountains into the valley below, and finally out into Watchman's Bay. The village was surrounded by lush forests, which was the main source of income and resources for the people who called Timber Creek home. Most people worked in the forests, cutting down trees, stripping the bark, and setting them afloat down the river towards the city-state of Crown Port, who paid the Village for the supplies on a monthly basis. Those who did not work collecting the lumber, hunted the wild game, fished the river, and collected the plentiful nuts and berries, to feed the lumbermen and their families. While the men worked in the forests and the mills, the children played in the clearings and along the river banks.
