The Hike

The Hike

We opened a door with the new knock.

It opens onto the end a long stone corridor. It’s really cold. We followed it for a while and never found the end, but there’s a faint light ahead, and places where the ceiling has cracked and sunshine gets in. Cole thinks it might be an aqueduct. We came back to prepare for whatever we might find, and however long it might take to get to it. Cole has camping equipment (cute!) so we’ve filled up a pack with water, food, and layers (did I mention the cold?) We’ll hike it for a (here) day and then, if we don’t find anything, we’ll come back.

Cole’s still pretty reluctant, but I’m glad he’s coming with me. There’s been no sign of The Storm, but we’re thinking about finding a door in Central Park to go back through, just in case. I know it’s the safer way but I’m still not 100% and feeling quite lazy. I’m such a New Yorker. An endless magical hallway is one thing, but a schlep to Midtown is quite another.

Wish us luck.

  1. Goodluck Deeds! I’m glad Cole will be there with you, puts my mind at ease to know you won’t be alone. I look forward to hearing about your findings!

  2. Be safe, Deeds! The Storm is terrifying, and it moves fast, so exiting in the Ramble sounds like a good idea. Let us know if we can do anything to help you and Cole, apparently our spell worked (at least for a few moments), so we might be able to help you out a little against the Storm. Just say the word and we’re on it!

  3. Be safe, Deirdre, and Cole as well. I know that Central Park commute is a pain, but it will give us peace of mind. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need us.
