You could feel the tendrils of sleep wrap around you and take you in. Even so you asked your Elekid to stand watch for you in case things got weird, you didn't feel its pull on you. You just fell deeper and deeper into this peaceful sleep. The sound of the wind swaying across the branches, and the warmth of the sun only helped to aid you falling to sleep. There wasn't much you could do, and you were left adrift.
After a while, you wake up in a wooden room. The wood also had that white, ethereal glow that the tree had. The bed you were in was soft and comfortable, and it seemed to envelop you in its warmth whenever you moved your body. Looking around, you couldn't see your Elekid anywhere, but you felt at ease none the less.
"Oh, you're finally awake," a masculine voice rings through your head. "Well, awake isn't the proper term, you're still very much asleep."
Looking around, you soon spot the origin of the voice. At least, what you think is its origin. Two figures stand in a doorway and slowly enter the room. They look pretty much identical, with both of them wearing flowing, white kimonos with pink obi. Their silvery white hair shines in the room, and pink eyes seem to stare through. You could tell the one on the left was male, based on more sharper features and shorter hair, while the one on the right was female, based on softer features and longer hair.
"Don't worry, we're here to guide you through this place," the girl speaks, he voice angelic and soft on the ears.
"We are the spirits of the Great Tree. It is the heart of this orchard, but rarely shows itself to those it does not deem worthy," the boy chimes in, his voice more rougher, but has a warmth to it that you've never felt.
"It has been long since we have received a guest brother! Though, it is a shame we couldn't bring your friend along... This is a place of dreams after all," the girl sighs in disappointment. She sounded pretty excited about this too.
"It's okay, we still have a guest after all these years," he starts to try and cheer her up before looking at you. "I do want to warn you though, the Great Tree has great power. While we are the guides for the living, please do no stray too far from us. We can't save you if you drift too far."
Well, it seems that these mysterious twins are your ticket out of here, in the sense of waking up. Though, this all feels a bit too surreal. Surely if you just fall back asleep, you'd wake up underneath the tree. Though, it doesn't seem to be that easy now, does it?
What will you do?
