Cara felt a little stupid as she walked out of the room. She had no idea where she was going, and her 'parents' had obviously not finished with their explanation. Going back in was all she could do.

Sighing, she pushed open the door whilst trying to look her 'parents' in the eyes.

"Ah, Cara. We thought you'd be back." Her 'father' said solemnly.

"Well, I need to know where I'm going. You seem to be the only ones who know where that is, so, I'm stuck 'til you tell me." Her 'mother' looked knowingly at her 'father', but didn't reply. Instead, her 'father' opened his mouth and began to speak.

"Now, this is very important that you listen carefully to what I have to say. You will need to visit the Gatekeeper, who lives on the Eastern Wynd. Which, if you were wondering, is a high mountain pass, far beyond any other inhabitant for miles. But you must make it there within a month. If you do not, your family in the previous world will have stopped grieving so much. That first month, they will feel indescribable pain, but after a month, that grief will dissipate slightly. When that happens, the gateway to the previous life will close up. We will give you a map to get there, but that is all. Farewell, daughter." Her 'father's' eyes were distant and dull, and Cara could tell that they were not happy. 

Well, you wouldn't be if the daughter you'd been waiting for all your life was hoping to leave to go back again.
