Even when he was very young, Remy would watch his father train the local militia. The training took place in a room made of the nepa leaves. It was high up and Remy was small. He stood on a rock and pulled apart some leaves so he could peek in. He knew children were not allowed to watch, but he was very curious and could not wait. Sometimes he would become so excited at what he would slide off his wobbly rock. Being very resourceful, he soon used many small rocks to steady the big one he would stand on.
