Ein Quin held his hand out apprehensively as Walter, the traveling salesperson, presented them with a magical talisman. The talisman beckoned them to grab it. When he tried, Walter yanked it away.
“If you want to touch it, you need to buy it.”
“I’m not buying it without seeing what it does. You’re a traveling salesperson, you don’t have any credentials.” Walter thought about it for a moment, before swinging it back within Ein’s reach.
Once again, Ein clutched the talesman. As soon as their skin came in contact with it, euphoria washed over them. Every molecule of their body resonated in harmony with the universe. The fabric of reality swaddled them.
The wave of euphoria crashed almost instantly, and the talesman glowed bright white. The light grew so intense it washed out Ein’s vision.
“What have you done to me?!” They cried, collapsing to their knees.
