7. Hidden World

Zac led her to the park. By the light of the moon everything glowed white and silver. "Why are we here?" she asked. Zac said nothing. Just pointed to a small cave across the pond. Maria recognised it. She used to play in it with her friends. They would pretend to be spies, superheroes or sometimes dragons. She didn't personally believe in dragons. They couldn't exist.

The cave was dark and surprisingly warm. Zac led her to the very back where there was a smooth wall of solid rock. This is where they stopped. Zac placed his hand on the rock and gestured for her to do the same. Feeling curious she obeyed.
"Close your eyes." he whispered.
Again she obeyed.
She could hear him murmuring in a language she did not understand. A hissing, whispering kind of sound. Suddenly, the wall began to vibrate beneath her fingertips. Then it dissolved away to show a long, dark tunnel. Zac took her hand in his.
"Scared?" he asked, "I'd be surprised if you weren't. I was the first time I ventured through here."
Maria gazed into his deep eyes. She was scared but she didn't want to admit it. He grinned and led her on into the tunnel. It was dark and damp. Water dripped with an eerie echo. They were enveloped darkness. It was impossible to see anything. Maria shivered. Zac seemed perfectly at ease. It was clear he had done this before. A small shaft of light came into view. She squinted trying to see what it was. As they got closer it grew bigger and bigger. Before long it was so big it was like staring into the sun. Then it faded and they found themselves in a field looking over the most beautiful landscape she had ever seen. Green grass stretched over hills and mountains as far as the eye could see, deep green trees grew baring different coloured fruits. Coloured flowers sprung up everywhere. In the middle of it all was a deep blue river peacefully flowing through the centre. Zac smiled and gestured to the landscape. "Welcome to Igondia."
