Foolish child, you do not know what you ask. Magic? You wish to learn these arts that I have spent my life studying?
Look at you. You do not look the type that would spend days poring over tomes, nor would dig up the bones of your ancestors to create potions or sacrifice virgins under the stars.
I have done all these things and more. I have put all my effort and time into this, boy, all my years have dwindled and I only wish for more time.
Go, swing a sword instead, boy.
You’ll live a more fulfilled life.
