In fact, ‘nothing’ was wrong. There was a door standing about 100 meters away from the group, yet it seemed to lead to nothing! Just an open door standing on the island. The first people walked through the door but didn’t come out at the other side, they vanished! Jenna, Crumble and Stella made big eyes.
“This is one thing magicians and other people travelling here are not allowed to tell others when they come back. And another reason why I couldn’t let you and Crumble get here back then. You wouldn’t have known what to do.”, Clemens explained to Stella. ” So how do others know that when they come here for the first time?”, Jenna asked. “They probably have to have a teacher or friend with them, I don’t think there’s another possibility.”
“So what do we do to get to the library?”, Stella wondered. “Well. You have to imagine the library while stepping through the door and you will find it exactly the way you imagined it. The problem is that we are a group and everyone probably thinks of it a bit different. If we all imagined it and walked through it just like this, we would all end up separated. That’s why we will choose one of us to do the imagining job, hold hands to stay connected and then everything will be fine.”
Now Stella knew what she had found odd about the magic school class she had seen walk through the door: they had all been holding hands!
