He was at the jetty before dawn, Marx was already there, it seemed he was checking the boat.
“You will get your food there…” he smiled. “I have packed up some food and water for emergency… its about two hours in the ocean…”
He started the boat, the silhouette of Marx slowly disappeared in the background.
He felt the ocean breeze soothing and refreshing at a time.
It took him exactly three hours and ten minutes to reach the co-ordinate… there was no sign of any island anywhere.
He looked around in every direction but there was no sign of any island.
He turned off the engine and the boat shook, just a little, then before he could react the boat wrapped itself in a bubble, that felt like crystal.
The next minute it was sinking under water… he did not resisted, if a boat can do the first thing it certainly wont drown him.
It started moving towards north, as per his compass, he could see fishes and other marine creatures swimming by, a shark, a few dolphins.
He hoped that his submarine boat wont draw attention of a navy submarine.
It started to rise again after an hour or a bit more.
It surfaced on a lake, surrounded by hills, the sky was strange though… it was golden, soft, mellow golden.
The boat started to move towards the jetty, he could see a few people waiting there for him, the crystal wrapping was gone the minute the boat surfaced, he could see their colourful dresses, that belonged to a world centuries ago.
The boat stopped in the jetty.
a very handsome man came forth and bowed.
he could see that he was a centaur and suppressed his reaction.
“Welcome young master!” he smiled. “Your chamber is ready.”
He came down on the shore and followed the creture to the huge palace that was lying in front of him. No wonder his family never ran out of money….
He did not had to be an expert to see that the metals used were gold and silver and the buildings were decorated by gems.
“Hello Bodhi!” a divine creature stepped forth to meet him when he entered the hallway, if she had a pair of wings he might have thought that she was a fairy, but she did not had them on display.
“I am Indu..” she smiled, “I take care of this place for your family, like Marx does out there, we both are elves.”
