I felt Romualdo´s strength getting weaker, and he was about to suffer from a break-down, when suddenly a blinding light appeared in front of us. My eyes recognized the woman instantly, who now stepped out of the heavenly light: The White Witch, a former enemy of mine, when I still ruled over the dark world. She showed no signs of fear or old enmity towards me, when she neared Romualdo to give him a precious powerful sword, that would help us to get past vicious creatures and dangerous magical powers.
The Witch then showed us a secret path into another dimension, we never would have found ourselves. She promised us to alway watch us and help us if needed and then vanished within a silverly cloud.
Romualdo´s hope was back, I saw it in his eyes. He bravely took the first step onto the path and immediately got sucked into this strange dimension. At first I was stunned by him, having vanished so quickly, but had to get past my shock quickly to follow him. It was an eerie feeling to be swallowed wholly. For a minute I felt coated by heavy wet and cold material that wanted to drain all of my willpower, my reason and memory. But with another large step, I managed to leave it behind me. Before my eyes, a new world was spread, a world with not one, but two suns, curious plants and trees and strange small animals, fleeing from us. No one was there to greet us, so I assumed that this portal to our dimension was hidden.
With new strength, Romualdo gripped his sword tight and lead us through the thick forest.
