I waited for the tower to stop and headed up to the top of the tower.
Like always, I could see the place of protection. That is one really tall tree. After marveling at the fact that this tree was still standing, I headed over to the key, only to be more confused than ever.

Confused as to how it could have been this easy, I pick up the book. It felt real... It looked real...
