Snow began to fall upon Skylar and Adrien as they arrive at a big barn. All of a sudden, Esmeralda appears out of no where and begins chasing them. Adrien rushes them inside the barn, where he later informs Skylar that it's currently the one hour of the day where Esmeralda can come to Allisia.
Step 7 / Conflict 3
"I expected you guys here; however, you won't defeat me!"
The barn is warm and cozy. Adrien attempts to teach Skylar how to use a sword; however, it doesn't seem to work. Adrien later suggests that Skylar should attempt magic. She perfects her first few spells and gains a lot of confidence in her ability.
Step 10 / The Climax
When Adrien leaves the room, Skylar sneaks out because she begins to believe she can defeat Esmeralda alone. However, a pack of wolves ambush her, almost killing her, until Adrien rescues her.
The bright sky had turned dark and dreary; Skylar and Adrien had arrived at Esmeralda's castle. They try to sneak in; however, she notices them immediately. She quickly shoots a fireball at Adrien, striking him in the chest before he could even move.
Adrien's lifeless body hit the floor. Although, Esmeralda seemed to have not noticed Skylar and kept her back turned towards her. Skylar quickly found a spell and shot it at Esmeralda, killing her. Skylar had finally saved the kingdom and could go home, thanks to all the help she had received.
The floor had turned from stone to a smooth wooden floor. Skylar opened her eyes to see that she was in her room. The last few days felt like a dream, but she was still happy she have Allisia and learned a valuable lesson while doing so, which was that even though you may not always want help, sometimes you absolutely need it.
