Once upon a time...
I grew up on a farm in Maple, Ontario with Black Aberdeen Angus cattle, and loved taking long walks across the fields and through the woods. I also spent hours in the loft of our old barn, dreaming and scheming. One day, I found a mysterious black medallion and a gold ring in an old chest in the corner of the barn. For years, I kept them hidden.
long, long after...
