Nickalen: The basics of ipanroot were taught to me in White Training, but most of the endless possibilities of theseed I learned in the Green Canton
Azur: I never seen one for real, where can I get one?
Nickalen: You can’t. They are forbidden
Nickalen: This seed has so much potential for the world! Many might consider this seed a cure for darkness! Others see in it, darkness itself.
Azur: Is it evil?
Nickalen: Everything good has a bad side… Now come! Let’s move! Platon looks full; we should continue on our way!
The GreenCircle puts on the armor! He takes the backpack and heads to the highest peak of the Mountain! Azur grabs the saddle and follows Nickalen. Platon follows them as well!
As their walk further continue, the rocky grassland turns into dangerous hills. Only rocks are between them and the top of the Mountain. Each rock is on top of the other! They form a stairway to the skies!
Azur bends his head and gazes at the sky! He tries to see the top of the Mountain.
Azur: Master, this… this is impossible!
Nickalen: You never climbed a mountain?
Nickalen: You will now!
The GreenCircle grabs Platon and puts him in his backpack. He keeps the platypus’ head outside so that it can see what is happening. Then, Nickalen ties the saddle on Azur’s back. The GreenCircle assures that the boy can use both hands during the climb.
Nickalen: Go first! I will be right behind you, watching your back!
The boy does not move. He is terrified.
Nickalen: Come on! The climb might look dreadful, but we are not in a hurry. One step at a time! I have faith in you!
The WhiteCircle does not believe in himself. He does not believe in his abilities! But he trusts his master’s words! As he says – “We are not in a hurry”, “One step at a time!”
So, the boy begins to make the steps!
The boy’s first hand checks if the rock is stable! Of course, it is not! He searches for the point of center by gently balancing the rock. It is stable!
