Chapter 11: For and Against
The guardians, Matt, Jake, and Rose all looked at the map they were given and from the looks of it; it seemed to be leading them around in circles. Everyone looked confused and had no idea weather they should try or just go looking by themselves. Lao Shi could see their confusion and decided to go look over the map with the kids. Lao Shi looked at the map and smiled. Hey gramps, why are you smiling, this map makes no sense at all. Jake asked utterly confused.
Jake, this is a special type of map that vampires use in case their enemies get a hold of it. Since youre the enemy to Varell and you dont know where he is, this map can be very confusing to you. Give me the map and I will show you what I mean. Lao Shi pointed to the beginning of the map which also appeared to be the end as well. Lao Shi dragged his finger along the map and then all of a sudden toward the end of it, his finger went right through it and downward. His finger went through without making a whole in it which confused everyone even further. Lao Shi grabbed a potion and then poured it on the map. Everyone looked at him as if he was crazy but then more of it appeared. There is a huge area underneath them and only one way to get there. They saw the map head out the building and so everyone went outside. The whole area is as big as the length of sixteen football fields in every direction. Everyone looked wide eyed at the map in front of them. The map went through everyone and even out the building as well as in and out others. Then Lao Shi came outside with the kids. Then the whole thing disappeared. You see young ones, things arent always as they seem as you now know. That is why you cant judge from a first look. Now go and hurry. Then Lao Shi went back inside after giving the map back to the kids.
