An Entirely Different World

An Entirely Different World

A subtle ray of light blinds you the moment you find yourself at the top of the tower. It faded quick. And when it did, along with it, a whole new world materialized before your eyes.

You notice everything looked very much alike in style as the courtyard when you first entered The Door--the structures, the colors, the balance.

It assures you that you are still in the same world.

Winding

Winding

The stairs going up felt like forever as you see a seemingly endless winding trail. Everywhere looked the same. The steps, the walls, the lighting. You can't see yourself doing any progress at all with that kind of monotony.

"Does this even end?"

You thought of counting the steps, but lost count by the moment you gasp for breath. Then all you can think of is reaching the top, if there ever was one.

With due perseverance, you eventually make it to the top.

The Chamber Within

The Chamber Within

Not far ahead, you find an opened door. You quickly enter the only chamber you can find, assuming it was the start of your quest.

A few steps up the stairs, you look back and notice the doors remain open--contrary to the cliche that all doors leading to somewhere unknown gets locked shut and never to open again.

You breathe a sigh of relief.
