Episode IV: The Magical Key
Jack is your normal, everyday 15 year old kid. Since he could remember, he has always had to do without many possessions in his life. But he has always been happy-go-lucky, yet somewhat careless with his thoughts and actions.

As Jack walked away with the magical key, the man behind the counter told him “That key works best if you rub one of the gem stones in the light of the moon.
