Search for a cure
"It's been 3 months now since that statue was left here, and now the whole town is sick. If we don't find a cure soon then we might loose everyone. You and Edmund are the only ones who are not affected so I want the two of you to go out and find a cure for this." Said the mayor between fits of caughing.
Maya, one of the town's teenagers, nodded. "Yes Sir."
"Don't take anything out of this town with you except for the clothes you are wearing and your money. When you reach the next town buy new things and burn the old ones. I don't want this to spread."
"Yes Sir. I'll go tell Edmund."
As she walked through the town looking for Edmund people stared at her in amazement. Normally she was sick while everyone else was healthy, but now, when everyone is sick she seems to be healthier than ever.
"Hey, Edmund the mayor has a job for us."
"He wants us to go look for a cure for this... Disease. We can't take anything with us though he doesn't want this spread to any other towns." She held up a small bag. "All we can take with us is our money. I also have a piece of crystal that fell off of the statue this morning." She put the bag away, and heard Edmund's mom coughing. "How is your mom doing? My mom is doing good enough that she could take care of her for you while we are gone."
