Part 4/5

Audio Bonus: Different from the story

Guided by his new awareness, Eldrin reached the heart of the forest. There, he met a regal figure: a woman wrapped in a midnight blue dress, her hair interwoven with leaves and wildflowers.

 “Welcome, craftsman,” said the Lady of the Forest. “You have come to the end of your inner journey.” Eldrin bowed. “I have understood my mistakes, but I don’t know how to correct them.” The Lady smiled. 

“Your ability to create is a gift, Eldrin. But every gift requires responsibility and connection with the world around you.” With a fluid gesture, she evoked an image of the mechanical dragon, now an instrument of destruction. 

“To reforge it, you must infuse it not only with metal and mechanisms but also with the essence of the forest, the balance of nature.” Eldrin nodded, understanding. “I must create not only with my hands but with my heart.” 

“Exactly,” confirmed the Lady. “Return to your forge. Use what you have learned. Create with empathy and awareness.” With renewed determination, Eldrin prepared to return, carrying with him the wisdom of the forest and a new vision of his role in the world.
