The Majestic Archway stands ahead.
After months of walking, searching, for this gateway to the Realm Beyond, I find it to be smaller than I imagined… and not as impressive. Where’s the gold? Where are the ornate statues? And it seems to be a little overgrown. It’s hardly an impressive sight for such a powerful portal. Obviously, my mind had imagined something far greater.
Still, the sky looks blue and bright and clear on the other side.
All I need to do now is cross the bridge and walk on through. The way ahead looks clear.
It seems too easy.
