Maaike was meant to be looking for the grownups - Abrielle and Lorenzo mostly, but she wouldn’t have minded talking to Bianca or Uncle Lys if they’d stayed in the mountains this long. But after following the river that ran to the hot springs, her natural curiousity and nose for adventure had led her down a new path.
Unexpectedly, the snowy landscape opened up almost in front of her, and Maaike stood and gaped. She’d never seen a lake before. She was familiar with moving water, creeks and streams and rivers, and she’d grown very used to the much narrower body of water that was the hot springs. But nothing like this.
She didn’t even know if she could get down there. Look at how steep the sides of the mountains around the edge of the lake were! Still - despite the fact she wasn’t all that enthusiastic about finding a giant body of water up here, Maaike felt sort of powerful standing up this high.
