As Arnie was approaching the hole to the cave, she noticed a bright blue ball flying around it. "Oh no... I bet its a Wysp," groaned the young Borrower.
Now Wysps are cousins to Pyksees and love to pull a good practical joke even better than their cousins! A Pyksee will spend days planning the perfect prank like to hang a bucket of water over a tree branch and watching it pour over some unsuspecting traveler. While a Wysp will take advantage of the moment and just drop the bucket on the Pyksee who is waiting for the traveler to appear *lol*. And no, they don't get along very well when left together in a room.
"Oh, nothing. Just passing by," Arnie answered. "Got to go, see you around."
"That's too bad," answered the Wysp. "I was just going into a cave I found and was wondering if you wanted to go with me."
Arnie knew that she should leave and come back later when the Wysp was gone, but she wanted so badly to check out the rest of the tunnel. Her need to see quickly overrode her common sense and decided she would take a chance. "Okay, I guess. I have time before I have to be anywhere," Arnie told the Wysp.
Quickly it became apparent that this part of the tunnel was not in as good of shape as the other direction. In a short distance, Arnie had to wade through a pool of foul smelling water, scuffed her shiny boots on a bunch of rocks and small stones, tumbled over a pile of gravel that shifted as she was climbing around it, and even walked through an area that small rocks and sticks would fall down and occasionally land on her tail.
Arnie was now standing alone in front of a wall of rushing water that was falling over the tunnel. "That's just great!" growled Arnie. "I should have known better." As Arnie started feeling into one of her pockets for a light, it became apparent to her that the cave was not as dark as she thought it should be. "Light must be coming in from the other side of all that water falling down from the wall," she realized. Excited, she was now determined to see what was on the other side of the falling water. Picking up a stick from the cave floor, she slowly pushed it through the falling water. Nothing stopped it and soon her arm was pushing through the water. "There must be an opening on the other side!" Not wanting to go back through the tunnel and with the curiosity of a Borrower, Arnie decided to take a chance and stepped into the wall of water.
