5. The Moonlight Monastery

The Moonlight Monastery was a beautiful sight for we curious travelers--built, it seemed, solidly and for eternity--as enduring as the stone cliffs it was a part of.

"This is even more than I expected." Starry whispered to me as we approached on the path to the massive front door and I was just as impressed as he.

It was evening, absolutely silent,  and we had a two day walk behind us and before us a mystery in a most unusual setting.

We found a heavy iron knocker on the door. 

A thrill went through me as I lifted and released it making a deep clang echoing far away into the halls and chambers of the edifice.
