I was but twelve years old at the time, but I can recall the earnestness of my guardians dark grey eyes and the tremulous fervor of his voice as he placed his hands upon my shoulders, and, gazing steadfastly into my face as if he would read my soul, said: Lachlan, my man (he always called me Lachlan when he was very serious- he and everybody else called me Lachy on other occasions) - Lachlan, my man, Im proud to observe that ye give promise of becoming a braw, strapping man- and faith, lad, yell need to be, for ye have a mission to accomplish when yere growed up thatll mayhap tax yer powers and yer strength beyond the usual demands.
