The country of Amny, known for being a huge trade country. Being able to import and export a larger quantity at a faster speed than anywhere else. Laine City, a large trade city known for many things. A lot of job opportunities, low tax, tons of things to see and do, and on top of all that, extremely technologically advanced.
To the southeast of the city, you can find Mt. Luonjeihl. It was the second largest in all of Zestria. It would take even experienced climbers weeks to get up this thing. It would be well worth it though, with a sight higher than the clouds being visible.
Near to the base, about a 3-hour climb there is a waterfall. A huge one, with the source being all the way from the top. You can imagine the speed at which the water falls drops. It got its name as a "Guillotine of Water" and used to be used in actual executions. If you do need to bathe, it's recommended to go one of the other smaller waterfalls you'll see later up along the path.
The newlywed couple took the taxing 3-hour climb through trees, mud and extremely uneven terrain, to be welcomed by "Khyvehes Waterfall".
"Haa...the guy said they'd be at the falls, right? Why couldn't we meet at the base?"
"Stop complaining, Re, we supposedly got the best of the best. A climb like...won't compare to reaching the very top..."
"Are you...really sure...it's okay though?"
"It would normally take weeks! This...person has hundrEDS!...of reviews...and the only thing someone could complain about...was that she was a girl. And she...brought them all up in 2 days. If that isn't saying something...then I don't know what is. Now...can we please stop talking? It's...making me more tired..."
There, they saw a girl. Long white hair along a slim figure and blood orange eyes, making her look similar to an albino, in a way. She was bathing herself under the thousands of feet tall waterfall, acting like all the rushing water was just a regular shower. She wasn't very tall, a bit shorter than the average Rudian, making her seem about the age of either a teen or a young adult. Some of her sizes though, did stand out in a big way.
The couple was ecstatic by what they saw. They both just stood there, staring. The girl then stared at them with a kind of murderous look, which startled the two. She then realised who they were, went to grab her towel which she left on a nearby rock and walk up to them.
"Hello... you would be Adrian and Claire, correct?"
"...Uh..yes! Does that make you 'Yume' then?"
"Correct, pleasure to meet you, hope you had a good hike. Yume at your service!"
"Umm, did it not hurt being under all that water?"
"You can try it if you like, ma'am. Wouldn't suggest it if you like your shoulders being intact though."
"So I heard you guys are taking the Top Route. With me, there's 3 ways, one is the Casual Route which takes weeks but it's wayyyyy safer and there're some nice views along the way. Next is the Experienced Route which takes a tiny bit less than a week, but is pretty dangerous. Sleeping at night in these woods on that path isn't really the best if there's no one on lookout. And finally, we have the Sleeper Route, which is special to me. I'll take you up there in two days, but I'll be pushing you guys to your limits. How 'bout it?"
"Why is it called 'Sleeper Route'?"
"'Cause a lot of people sleep there at night...and never wake up, obviously."
Those words startled the two a bit, but knowing she was with them assured them and they agreed to go on the 'Sleeper Route'.
