[Left inside Misha's school locker with no sign of how it got there, is a small carved wooden box. The outside motifs are largely leaves and vines, the hint of branches hidden by the "greenery". Intertwined with it are symbols so old that there are very few able to read it, though its closest translation is עֵץ הַחַיִּים.
Inside is a note, unsigned:
For your beloved, only if it is needed. You'll know when, and you'll know what to do.
And a leaf. And a single fruit.
Both have the feeling of being older than ancient, but neither has wilted or withered a single bit, and they never will. Any time the box is opened, they still smell as if they've been picked right from the tree, though the outside of the box holds the slightest scent of charred wood.]
