“The downside,” the witch told the nothing that was sure to be listening, “with multiple altars is that you invariably lose them or forget what you’ve stored away.”
She turned over a beautiful, but odd, and completely forgotten about, stone in her hands. “The upside, however, is the discovery you feel when you find one as you go looking for something else entirely.”
Distracted by the stone, the witch forgot about her original search entirely.
The nothing, indeed listening, spent the rest of the day wondering if this loss was an upside or a downside.
