The forest seems calm but it gives you an invigorating vibe. You walk deeper and deeper to it's core, where you see a soft, milky moon stone gem like pond amongst wild flowers. The moon glitters on top of the pond like a silver silky thread of a spider in bright morning sun. Fresh, spiky and hairy wild flowers and orchids are scattered widely around the pond and the aroma is floral and spicy.
You hear a whisper in your mind: “The forest shall not survive long for it's made entirely of one type of tree, drink my water and heal me”.
Slight darkness spreads in your mind inch by inch, but it's quickly suppressed by your light. You let go and drink the incredible smooth, creamy and velvety liquid. The taste is incredible, it's saturated by the orchids growing around, honeysuckle, vanilla, milk chocolate and sweet honeydew melon. It remains in your mind for a long period of time.
You feel so refreshed, wild, open-minded and somehow very different.
You hesitate but then look quickly into the pristine pond. Instead of your resemblance you see a seed with a sprouting leaf ready to be planted.... then... everything fades."
