Relax your mind and ground yourself. When you are ready, we can continue our journey. You are back in a desert. You can see in the distance the two-way sign you passed earlier when you were here.

You are still dressed in all white because of the heat of the desert. You look up to see no clouds in the sky. You have attached to your pants the golden wand gifted to you from the Page of Wands.  You hear a roar come out of the blue. You turn to see the sand begin to rise up like a huge ocean wave. You try to run but are rooted by the sight. Riding the desert wave is a person on a large yellow surfboard, dressed in a red shirt and pants and mirrored sunglasses. The person waves to you. Is it a woman or a man? As the wave is almost upon you, the person grabs you up and puts you behind them. You hold on for dear life as the two of you ride this desert wave.

“Relax. This is the fun way to get to the castle; you met up with my cuz, Page of Wands, earlier. Told me to look out for you. Come a long way, huh? Wands Land is the best. I'm Flash Knight.  Everyone calls me Flash cause I like things fast and talk too much as well. We should be there in ten minutes. If it gets too much, just close your eyes.”

“You surf the desert?” you ask

Flash laughs. “Everything can be surfed, just gotta find the right way to do it.”

As you ride this wave, how do you feel? Do you see anything besides Flame and this ocean of sand? Is this too fast for you or do you like it slower?

Finally, Flash and you begin to get lower as the sand begins to lose power.

“Hold on, this might get bumpy.”

You descend closer to the ground. As the wave finally stops, the board surfs around for a minute then stops. You almost fall off but Flash has got you.

“All right! Now, that was a ride!! You're a pretty good surfer.”

You look up to see the desert castle you saw earlier, now a mile away. It gleams bright yellow as the sun.

“Walk up that road, tell them Flash sent you.”

“Why am I here?”

Flash smiles at you and puts a comforting arm around you. “There are things that need to be created and explored and found that only you can do. You have forgotten that, my friend. But here you can remember.”

Do you know what Flash is talking about? Or is it a mystery? You can ask Flash some more questions if you like or you can say goodbye.

When you are ready, open your eyes back to your reality. Reflect on your adventure with the Knight of Wands.
