Hunter Trial #2: First Challenge
The #WinnieWednesday Prompt Challenge!
To pass the second trial, the applicant must spend a night in the forest alone; no adult hunters are allowed to interfere except in emergency situations.
You passed your first trial, did you? An amazing feat. What nightmare did you slay? A will-o-wisp? A hellion? A basilisk?
Well done, either way.
Now you must brave the forest again, but this time, you must remain within the boundaries of its magic for the entire night. From when the mist rises until the mist falls, you must navigate its trees and monsters…
Good luck, young Luminary. We hope you survive the night.
