Grave-Keeper: Well? Which doorway will you choose?
I had thought long and with great intention about this choice — any of these worlds (the Seas Below, The Infinite Well, the Hall of Echoes) could lead me to the Secret of Life and reunite me with my soul.
I: I choose the middle.
The Grave-Keeper paused a moment and then extended their hand.
Grave-Keeper: Very well. I hope to see you soon.
I thought about saying, “you as well” but I didn’t. Instead I walked forward through the doorway leading to The Infinite Well.
Suddenly, I was outside amidst a great forest. The night sky shined above. A voice spoke to me.
My Soul: You’ve found me! Come, follow. We have much to do.
