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.
