“Where did you find this again?”

“My grandmother’s house. We’re finally clearing out her things. Is it worth anything?”

The shopkeeper continues to examine the ring. “This is a very powerful magical item,” she says at last. “This isn’t really my area, if I’m honest.” She pulls a business card out of a nearby drawer and hands it to me. “Here. They might be able to help.”

“Thanks,” I say, pocketing the card. “Any idea what it does?”

“I think it has the power to create new life.”

“Really?”

“Either that or it generates unlimited cheesecake. It’s hard to say.”
