They seem to be spiraling gradually down into the heart of the mountain. At one point they emerge from the end of a corridor into a huge natural-looking cave, lit by veins of luminous crystal in the walls and floor and ceiling, with an underground river flowing through it; in the very center of the cave, the river splits around a massive crystal formation, a cluster of seven perfectly clear six-sided pillars that reflect and amplify the light of the smaller, cloudier, brightly-glowing crystal spars around them.

"On my own, mostly."

"Oh it's the kind of thing you can learn on your own? I guess that would make sense."

Permalink

"It's not easy but I'm good at it."

Permalink

"Is there a first step?"

Permalink

"I'll show you when we get to the garden, if you like."

Permalink

"I'd love that."

He laughs.
