Where The Secret Is Safe

Somewhere, in the garden, down under the ivies, if you brush away the gathering dry leaves, there is a rope attached to a wooden hatch that opens to a secret passageway. If you can find it, the passageway leads to a darker place, a place where the light of your eyes will be challenged to see what skitters and slithers and crawls across the earthen floor and along the cobwebbed walls. Do not stop in the dark place but continue on through to the next room, where you will find a light and a desk with a quill pen and parchment ready for you to write the truth that you dare not speak above.
