What A Dumb Idea...
It was soon apparent to Arnie that the Wysp had seen her as it started to fly towards her. Arnie put on a brave smile and hoped that it would go away quickly. "This is all I needed," Arnie thought to herself.
"Hi, whatcha doing?" asked the Wysp.
"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."
"That's great! I can even light up the trail for us. See you there." Arnie barely heard the last part of the Wysp's comment as it quickly sped away towards the tunnel entrance.
Soon Arnie was down the hole and standing in the tunnel. "I have already seen what is in the tunnel going down but as Squirrel said, let's see what is at the other end," she thought to herself when the Wysp asked which way she wanted to go. "Let's explore up," she told the Wysp. Deciding that the blue light the Wysp gave off was good enough to see, Arnie didn't bother to look for a torch or pull out a candle from one of her pockets. "No sense wasting them if I don't have to," she figured as she followed the Wysp.
Soon she was scratched, wet, smelly, and the snarls in her tail which would take hours to get out... "What a dumb idea Squirrel had," she thought as she kept following the Wysp.
Little did Arnie realize, that a few feet from where the Wysp was leading her was a perfectly level path with nothing blocking the way. "Oh wait until I tell the others about what I did today to a Borrower," the Wysp giggled as it continued to lead Arnie up the tunnel.
As Arnie was beginning to think that they should turn around and go back, she started hearing a roaring sound. "I wonder what that is," she thought. Again, her curiosity grabbed ahold of her and she knew she needed to keep going. As the Wysp lead Arnie around yet another bend in the tunnel, the roar turned even louder. "This is far as I go," she barely heard the Wysp say before it turned and flashed back down the tunnel.
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.
It only took a few seconds, but Arnie realized once she was through that a waterfall was hiding the entrance to the cave she had been in. "That's why nobody has found it before," she realized, "but I wonder where I am?"
