Walking along in the park after school with Rashel, Thario's enjoying himself. Overall, he's doing pretty well except for feeling kinda weirdly tired. It's probably just a bug that's going 'round though, so he'll be fine pretty soon.
Then he notices the lake.
The lake looks rather as lakes do, somewhat reflective, is surrounded by trees, that sort of thing, but for some reason it looks a bit off, so he walks closer to it to get a better look, leaving Rashel closer to the path, and then he notices that the reflection doesn't seem to match with what's above the lake, and then he has a weird feeling of vertigo, doesn't actually fall over, but he notices that his surroundings seem to have changed.
