"Where am I?"
Charlotte woke up in an entirely different place. She seemed to be in some kind of... canyon? She couldn't tell. Behind her, the walls were colored a orangey salmon. The ground was made of a kind of rock that was a mix of the colors pink, bluish, and white. The ground seemed to have a sheer drop, and, she realized with a sick feeling, the bottom was shaped like a coffin. There seemed to be some kind of spray of water that came out of a large rock formation at the top of the whole thing.
There was a large line of people that Charlotte seemed to be in the middle of.
"Where am I?' she repeated.
A woman standing before her turned to see. She had long blond hair and strikingly orange eyes. "You are before the falls of time," she said. "It is the bridge between life and death."
oh. …oh. Charlotte took a deep breath and tried not to panic. I'm... dead.
"This is your chance to win your life back," said the woman. The line moved forward by a few people. "Don't touch the water, or you get pulled back in time." Soon enough, Charlotte was at the front of the Falls of Time. Deep breaths... deep breaths. She thought. Then she jumped.
The air whizzed past her, and took her breath away. She dodged one fall, then another. Soon, she was in a completely dry spot. Around her, she saw many time periods, and it took her breath away. That, and she was floating. With a strong stroke, she was moving upwards. She laughed. This ws the best thing she had ever experienced. As she flew, she saw many interesting things. There was a fiery tunnel, a fox and frog on a boat that seemed to be on a river made of silver. Silver! Wow! Soon... "OWCH!" Charlotte slammed her head onto something large. She'd made it to the end of the falls! Before her, there seemed to be a magical floating diamond. She grasped it, and woke up!
"YOU'RE ALIVE!" yelled someone, and suddenly Toby was hugging her.
"You'll never believe what I just saw..." said Charlotte. Then she noticed Maddie staring at her, looking shaken. "What happened?" Charlotte asked.
"Looks like we've got an encounter with our first witch..." said Sam, motioning to the world around them. The trees seemed to be burnt, and a thick smoke filled the air.
"Looks like we're in Witch territory, now."
"Mochii?" Ellie asked, puzzled. "Whaaat?" And that was when the craziest thing happened in Ellie's life. A fox jumped out of the trees. "It's grand sorceress Mochii, and Aren't you supposed to be dealing with the Chimera?" asked the fox.
"Y-yes ma'am!" said the knight.
"Go ahead then!" Mochii yelled, and with a snap of her fingers, the man was gone. Then, she turned to the two girls. "You have to get out of here..." she said. "Where do you need to go?"
"Do you know where Charlotte Henderson is?" asked Ellie.
"Charlotte... Charlotte... AHA! Yes, she's in Witch Clan territory right now, are you sure you want to go there?"
"YES!" yelled Ellie.
"Then I can take you there." said the grand sorceress, and suddenly they were in a sinister place.
