‘What an incredible place.’

Mabel walked on the damp ground, leaving clear footprints of her sturdy shoes. The gloomy atmosphere persisted, and she had been hearing some kind of animal cry in the distance. She consulted the map several times, trying to find the direction to the mage’s mansion.

However, there were no landmarks to guide her, and Mabel felt sweat trickling down her forehead. As she took a step forward, she heard the sound of something quickly scurrying away and instinctively pulled her foot back. To be honest, she wanted to go back home right away. But if she didn’t persevere here, the peace of the Eakes Kingdom might be at risk.

‘Am I still not there yet?’

Mabel tripped over a tree root and fell forward with a short scream. She quickly managed to stand up, but her palms and knees were covered in mud. She brushed it off as best she could and continued on.

How long had she been walking like this?

Everything in the vicinity had an eerie, gloomy atmosphere. The makeup she had put on had completely melted away from the sweat, and the mud on her hands was starting to dry. Fragments of mud were falling from her clothes. Even the luggage she had minimized felt very heavy to Mabel now.

When Mabel began to think that she might die here, lost and alone, she instinctively stopped moving. She felt a slight pain in her heart. 

Perhaps it was the desire to go home, but there was also a sense of discomfort that seemed to whisper to her that this was not the right way. Following her intuition, Mabel changed direction and continued on. Then, after a while, she felt a tightening sensation around her heart.

Avoiding the direction that gave her a bad feeling, Mabel continued to change direction as she went. She noticed that the area beyond the trees was getting brighter as she went on. She instinctively ran towards it.

“I should be out!”

Beyond the forest was a neatly trimmed lawn that resembled a carefully tended garden. The short grass was a fresh green, and the sun was shining down fully. Mabel took a deep breath as the tightness around her chest left her.

She stretched out her arms and let out a sigh. Then, she saw an old stone castle in the distance.
