Crossing the Threshold
Even though Lucy knows that it is important to try to heal her dad, she feels as though she isn’t capable of the quest.
After seeing Lucy's doubt in herself, Brandon offers to help Lucy get the medicine.
The next day, Brandon and Lucy leave their village and begin their journey.
Be careful and stick together!
