Tock’s Parents, Part 1
Once upon a time, there were two Gnomes who felt alone in very different ways.
The boy, born of privilege to a successful family of inventors, wanted nothing more than to be a jeweler. He saw in precious stones a beauty that his parents, siblings and cousins did not.
The girl, born poor and orphaned early, had the same dream. Growing up with nothing, jewelry seemed to her the perfect symbol of wealth and beauty. She hoped that one day she could bring that to others, and herself in the process.
