THE CREATURES OF CRYSTONIA gathered in the castle forecourt. A feeling of anticipation filled the air as Centaurs, Duende, Ogres, Fauns, and Cyclops pressed into the gardens. The sun set, casting a warm blanket of darkness over the excited creatures. First, two or three candles appeared in the crowd. Soon, hundreds of flames flickered in every corner of the gardens, filling the courtyard with a soft, golden glow.
Excited whispers were exchanged as the citizens of Crystonia eagerly awaited the events due to transpire soon.
At the sound of a bell’s chime, a tiny gust of wind flowed over the castle walls, extinguishing all the candles in the same instant. The quiet breeze brought the Fairies, and soon the sky was filled with the tiny creatures, glowing in their brightest colors and humming their happy songs.
The noise of the crowd died down as if by magic. All eyes were raised to the glass castle doors that were glowing with the flickering, dancing flames of torches from inside the grand palace.
