5: Once upon a time, in a land not far from our beach hamlet, was a place called Magic Island. It is not difficult to find, signs point the way. But once there, the Island is so powerful that some people become stars, while others are lost and never return.
6: The streets are paved in onyx and gold. Traffic lights drip with rubies, emeralds and amethysts, while giant crystals rise from the ground.
10: When the sun sets in the evening, a rainbow kaleidescope appears and , diamonds dance in the windows while sapphire glitters the water.
14: Gold is spun from thin air downtown while people dance and sing in midtown. And uptown? Well, that is where all the citizens live, high up in the clouds.
18: A raven haired maiden lives in the clouds. She was under Magic Island's powerful spell. Reflections are often false and reality endlessly morphs shape. This deception creates a dreamy happiness while tirelessly weaving its powerful spell that can only be broken by the One True Love.
22: One day, the Maiden met a handsome Knight. In that singular moment, two worlds collided and a powerful chain of events was set in motion.
26: The Knight began courting the Maiden. He was sure he was the One who could break the Island's spell. But in order to do this, he had to perform three purification rituals.
30: The first ritual was having the Maiden feel snow falling on her skin. The spell numbed her sensations to Mother Nature. The Ritual must occur on the first snowfall of the year. Then the aura of the spell will begin to thaw.
32: When the first snow fell, the Knight and the Maiden went on a walk. The Maiden said that the winter sky was so bright and that she had never seen such sparkling snowflakes before.
34: As the snowflakes kissed her lips and danced on her eyelashes, the Maiden slowly tilted her gaze up. A gentle smile appeared on her face when she caught the knowing glimpse in the Knight'’s eyes.
36: The second ritual was to return the music to the Maiden's life. The spell dulled her senses and she was no longer moving to the rhythm in her mind and dancing in her heart. She was sleepily following the march of the drones.
40: He even wrote songs for her.
42: And when they danced in moonlit woods to the rhythm of nature, the Knight knew the Ritual worked.
44: The third and final Ritual was to kiss the Maiden at midnight, on the third night of the full moon. On that night, a horrible storm swept its way ashore. With pounding rain and ferocious wind, the Knight quickly found shelter in an enclave with an iron door.
46: Time stood still in the enclave. The pouring rain disappeared as the wind dissipated to a gentle breeze. The Knight leaned in and kissed the Maiden.
48: The kiss was astonishing. A powerful light emanated from the couple and broke the spell.
52: A new spell had been cast. A new fire just lit.
54: Together, they traveled around the world.
78: And then...
80: They lived happily ever after...
82: The End
