You weren’t necessarily looking for adventure today when you stepped outside for a walk, but adventure seems to have found you...
You have completed your task, and while you feel an odd sense of fulfillment, nothing seems to have happened. You aren’t really sure what you were expecting. Perhaps you were hoping for one of the park’s many trees to start glowing, or to hear a message whispered by the wind. But nothing happens. Even the air is still. The stagnation makes you a little antsy, so you decide to look around thinking that you might have missed something.
You’ve made it to your destination safely thanks to your disguise. Looking at it, you can’t possibly see how this ordinary bus stop is connected to the Mysterious Maple. You wonder if you’re supposed to get on the next bus and ride it to the end of the line, or wait here for a stranger to get off and deliver your next clue.
While you feel a little more informed about the town and its history, something in your gut tells you that you’ve somehow gone astray on your search for the Mysterious Maple. You try to look around the monument for another clue or at least a hint, but it isn’t long before you start to think that you’ve reached a dead end.
After completing the challenge, you wait patiently for the next clue. After all, it doesn’t seem to make itself known right away, but as more time passes, you start to feel yourself lose hope. You look out across the calm waters of Stillwater River, searching for something, anything.
