Staring up at the ceiling, the shadows began to form shapes before his eyes. Archie imagined the shapes were lands; different islands on a faraway map. He imagined knights galloping bravely across great green fields, horses’ hooves cutting through the mist rising up from the grass. On one side was a forest, a terrifying forest of smoke, full of mystery and darkness and things with too many legs and sharp fangs. Across the middle was a sea, but a sea like no other. A solid sea of frozen waves many adventurers and tried, but failed, to cross. Then there was a great desert of moon sand that glowed blue day and night and further still were the rocky crystal peaks of the Mountains of Ice and Tears. Hidden deep amongst them was a palace and inside there – well, inside there was a terrible secret.
