[Season One, Entry Five] The elevator rumbled down the shaft for a moment before stopping. "You could choose anything," Ilana said, "but you chose to make an elevator." "It's what I wanted," Daniel said with a shrug. "Now then, what am I about to face?" "Here is the first part of your first trial. It was conceived by a warlock who passed through before." Daniel looked down the short passage before him and at the giant stone shaped like a door at the end. "And what's behind door number one?" Ilana looked at him with a strange expression. "This trial has no other doors." "Okay. Then why lies behind this one?" "Beyond this door is a cave, and within that cave lies a dagger. You must bring that dagger to me." "What's so special about that dagger?" "It is necessary for the next trial." Daniel waited for more information, but Ilana said no more. He took a deep breath and released it. Then he exited the elevator and stepped into the passage. Before he went far, he turned back to ask another question. However, the elevator was now gone, replaced by a rock wall. He turned again to the door a short distance away and approached. The door loomed over him, made him feel tiny. Before, he saw no details on it. It was simply a stone door. Now that he stood before it, he clearly noticed two details. First, the door looked like a single, unbroken piece of stone with no apparent way to open. The next thing, a giant eye was carved into its center. The iris was a virtual slit. Beneath it was written, "He sees and knows all." Daniel gulped and knocked on the door. No response came. He tried again with the same results. He called for the door to open, but it didn't. Perhaps he needed a secret word or action. The word "touch" popped into his mind. At first Daniel questioned it. Touch? Was that the password? Daniel decided to try something else. He reached out and lightly touched the door. It felt exactly as he expected, but nothing happened. Then he tried something bolder. He placed his entire hand on the door and waited. A vertical line emerged along the door's center, and the door slowly cracked open. Bright light poured out from within. Daniel hesitated then forced himself to slowly walk into the light, allowing it to engulf him.
I am currently reading the fifth chapter of the first book of @Aragmar 's series. It is so good and every time a chapter ends and a new character is introduced I am a little upset because I want to know what happens. But then I get caught up in the next one and my patience is restored. I am properly hooked!
