My God! It’s true. Everything Keyes said is true. There is another place, another world. I’ve seen it. Wonderful things.
The tunnel empties out into a… I don’t know what. A kind of forest, I think. It’s so hard to describe right now. I only took a quick peek outside and the images are still a flurry in my mind. It was a forest out there, a jungle, a really dark and hot jungle full of the weirdest vegetation I’ve ever seen. I didn’t recognise a single plant.
Must sleep now. Exhausted. When I finally gathered up the courage to go deeper along the tunnel my adventure only took a few hours. It feels like I’ve been awake for centuries, though. It was so hard to climb up from the pit. But I had to. I feel like I could sleep for days and if I don’t cancel the scheduled post it’s possible I’ll sleep so long I’ll wake up with O’Heir standing over me. And that wouldn’t do. Not now. Not after what I’ve seen.
I’ve told Maya about it already. When I mentioned those trees I could have sworn her eyelids flickered.
