You know, for me all of this is new. I've not yet seen the last boss of Sardo Castle. I haven't even stepped a foot inside the Hall of the Seven Heroes. To me these things look different. I still remember the first time I saw a glacier. Now we can argue whether the hue was more greenish or more blueish. Let's call it teal. Or cyan. It was, however, unique. I know that She isn't really around, but I could still feel Her, making my hairs stand up and my spine tingle. Had it not been so cold, I might even have meditated, to feel the lotus bloom in my head. But there were others that didn't look at things the same way. They had seen it before. They had been there many times, and they just wanted to do the obligatory jump in the ice cold water, or fill their bottles with it. They knew the way, which rocks to avoid, which path to follow. To them it was just getting the loot, and get out again, before the altitude head ache strikes, or boredom.
I'd never get bored of this. And it was sad that there were these rocks rolling down, and I was able to avoid them, yet the door was closed. I didn't listen well, I was too excited at everything. There was no way out. And then it was over. But I'll get to go again. Just need to plus my rings a little bit higher, and add a few more of those delightful wisdom/health stats. You'll come with me, right?
