The dream changed. First I went through a silent forest. Then I was alone in a small boat, which was floating along, past tree-covered islands. The boat was carrying me between grassy banks with colorful dots here and there. The water was so clear that some soft clouds in bright sky could be seen in it. The current must have been strong, for the boat kept moving forward quickly, as though
it were being pushed by some unseen hand.
At last the boat came to a place with a narrow stretch of silver sand. An old man was standing, his hand shading his eyes. As the boat ran around, he came up to me, held out his hand, and greeted me politely.

I kept still for a moment and was wondering what would happen next. The old man noticed my doubt and smiled at me kindly.
“You need not be afraid，” he said. “You are deeply respected by us all. Everything has been prepared for you. Now please come with me to the place chosen for you.*'
I dared not refuse him，but for reasons I cannot explain, I wouldn’t touch his hand out stretched to help me as I stepped out of the boat. We made our way towards a low flight of steps, which led to a beautiful palace, where I expected something dangerous was hidden.
