The room clearly has been enlarged and transformed by magic because in front of us is a Wonderland. Colors, trees, plants, flowers, birds, squirrels, leaves, everything is scattered about us. The room is even as bright as if the sun was shining down upon us although we are underground.
"This is a simulation of the Trial by Tale. You may have heard of it from your parents, although this may be a bit different from what you heard. Your goal is to make your way through and survive. I wish you luck." With those ominous words the man who led us here closes the door and we are left to our own devices.
"Be careful everyone, just because this looks peaceful, does not mean it is. They are most likely trying to bring our guards down." Lei cautions everyone.
At this we all look about apprehensively. No one wants to be the first to fall to their deaths.
We stand there for several minutes, no one willing to be in the lead, until finally of course Cedric strides forward.
"Come on guys, I'm sure he was just kidding!" He says, trying to encourage us to follow him.
"But people have died before in the Trial by Tale. It is wise to be cautious." Lei replies.
No one moves.
Finally, I sigh and start to walk forward, ignoring everyone else. They remain still for a second more. Then, seeing we are fine rush to join us as we move through the tall grass and past the various small animals and colorful vegetation.
"Wait up Ceddy!" Linsey calls. I nearly gagg. Ceddy? Really?
"I-I I shall go forward as well!" Rauf announces rushing forward to join us. Oceanus just quietly plods forward and after a moment of worry Lei joins us too.
We make our way through the lush wildlife releatively safely. Eventually our team members start to let their guards down. And of course that is when danger strikes. Although, danger not in the form we expect.
Meanwhile in another room not too far away two figures are huddled around a mirror.
"Are you sure the children will be all right?" Asks one of the figures worriedly.
"They'll be fine, it's only a simulation, they can't really die although they don't know that. Besides Aggie would kill me if something happened to her kids." The other figure responds tossing her golden hair.
"But really dear, I don't understand how you manage to come up with this test and all your other ideas."
The second figure's emerald eyes glitter. "We needed a way to deffrentiate good from evil clearly, and now we have one. Besides, it'll be fun to see how the kids do." She says with a devious expression.
The first figure looks on nervously. I don't understand how her or her predecessor's minds work at all.
Sorry the chapter was so short. The next one will definitely be longer and it'll actually get into the action too.
