“My eyes went wide when I entered the dream. I knew this place. It was the abandoned Throne Room of the Dream Domain. Overcoming my confusion, I walked on. I found my charge on the floor, sitting with his head in his hands.
For a second, I hesitated. How did this person know what the Throne Room looked like? Was it a trap? That seemed unlikely – dreams had never been an unsafe space for Dream Guides before.
I surveyed the young man on the floor for a moment. His shoulders were shaking. With one more look around the room, I walked up and kneeled beside him.
“Hello, Dane. I’m Zara. I’m here to help you. Tell me what happened.”
Little did I know, Dane would be joining me in the Netherrealms soon.”
