The royal gardens were unlike anything that I have ever seen. They were massive, extending from the back of the castle to the woods that were at least a few acres away. There was an abundance of colourful flowers of numerous varieties and several topiaries that were shaped into mermaids and other figures. The grass was a bright green and was meticulously and neatly trimmed. As I walked the gardens and enjoyed my shaved ice, I heard the sound of running water to the right of me. Oddly enough, the gem started chiming and shinning a beam of light in that direction. Following my gut feeling, I decided to head into that direction, hoping that it wasn’t leading me to a dead end.
As I continued down an unpaved path surrounded by trees, the sound of running water and the chiming of the gem became louder. After walking another five minutes I ended up in front of a small lake with a waterfall above it. Surprisingly the gem was chiming loudly and rapidly. I looked at the gem with confusion and tried to mentally decipher what it was leading me to. I then heard laughter and franticly decided to hide behind a large rock by the water just to be safe. Suddenly, as I quickly ran towards the rock my foot got caught in a tree root and I fell, bumping my head on the rock and then falling into the water. Soon after, everything went black.
