You are unable to move very quickly and all sorts of odd scientific paraphernalia protrude from your body. Therefore you feel you do not have a choice but to accept the good doctor’s offer. The white cat in the lab coat known as Dr. Winter seems to smile even more when you accept his offer. The already dark lab gets darker and you slip out of consciousness.
Darkness takes you. When you wake up you find yourself standing in a white snowy field on a cold clear night. You find yourself dressed in a tightly bound white cloak that extends down to your feet. It feels soft yet slick to the touch as if made of some microfiber material.
There is a full moon out tonight. It would normally not be much help in this darkness, but now you can see in the darkness as clear as day. Tiredness has left you; there is no sleep or fatigue in you this night.
Now before you stands the Labyrinthine Forest, except now it appears to be winter. Snow is on the ground and the moon gleams off of it. The lady statue, as Dr. Winter had said, is still there with her arms out as if ready to embrace you. Yet there is something different: around the statue, taking up the majority of the fields, is a vast fortress that appears to be made out of white ice cycles. The peak of the castle glimmers in the pale full moon.
Also in the snow you find two sets of footprints.
One goes straight into the mist surrounding the castle,
the other goes into the Labyrinthine Forest.
**This is where trails are mixed and paths are weaved, Now is the place where a Choice is conceived. **
