Ron, went back to Aura. I got the initial inventory, lit the fire under the pot looking thing and the lighter went back into inventory on its on. Finished the chores to charge the little generator, picked up the generator to keep. My cursor stayed the knife or sword with the green gem. I'm not sure why you still have the lighter. If you have just started the game and not explored outside, you might want to start over and see what occurs.
Yesterday is but today's memory, tomorrow is today's dream.
