Untold Secrets - Part 4

The shocking cold feels like icy needles stabbing all around.  You are grateful that the glow on your palm has not gone out.  The clear, icy, water shows you a stream much deeper, and larger, than you previously imagined.

The current grabs you, but it is only at the surface.  As you sink down further, the minerals and rock forming the sides glow and sparkle in directions.

Somewhere above you see Bob The Pixie, though you cannot really be sure.  Spears strike the surface of the water above, but the current is your friend, carrying them away faster than they can reach you.

In a sudden burst of warmth, you realize you are freezing to death.  The cold has seeped past the skin, grabbing hold of the muscles.  Your heart is pounding in an effort to keep your brain warm, but you are now unable to swim.  What little oxygen remains in your lungs hangs as you feel a fog settle in your brain.

Sleep.  You fight to stay awake, but it is too late.  What was Bob thinking?  Why did you listen when you knew how cold it could be?

As you turn slowly to your side, you see a shining light at the bottom of the stream.  It glistens as if from spires of white, but you are sure it is a trick as your brain falls asleep.

For those interested, what is 'The Wall Outside' about?

Step across the barrier and what will you find?
A place of magic just out of sight?
A pixie, a leprechaun, or even a sprite?

What starts as a vacation, turns into a mess. For Jonna, there's
more at stake than meets the eye. Through pouring rain,
misdirection, and a curious mind, Jonna crossed the barrier
between our world and magic.

Now forced to return across the barrier, Jonna battles Dark Mages, angry leprechauns, and a ruthless Minotaur, all in an effort to find his wife. To do this, he must locate the stolen Rune Blade and rescue a beautiful elvish princess.

But what can a human do when faced with a world of magic?
