When my eyes opened, I was in the courtyard. I saw a shimmering in the distance, close to the maze. They looked like heat waves creating a large wall. The waves were a mix of orange, yellow, and blue flame, looking like the sun had started rising in the middle of the courtyard. It was my eighteenth birthday, I knew it then, but it did not make sense.

Why was I here?

Then, as the shimmering became more transparent, I saw a face that was both familiar and strange. Daniel. He was wearing a black robe, a rosary around his neck. He looked like he was in quiet meditation, the small black bible in his hand open to a page. His mouth was moving, but I could not hear his voice.

Suddenly, I saw that he felt my presence. His eyes looked up to me, looking like a cross between startled and pleased. It was the same face I was so close to only a few minutes ago, but it was also obviously a lot younger.

I could see Daniel looking at me, my clothes, and the castle at the back. He looked bewildered, but he blinked his eyes several times. He looked like he was in disbelief. Then, he looked at the opened page right in front of him and started muttering some words.

He was praying.

What did he think I was? A demoness? What would a young monk think when he saw a young woman across what seemed like cold flames? I went closer to the shimmering wall and touched it.
It was suddenly gone.
