Finally, King Cedric found the Jewel of Incandescent Truth, the ultimate symbol of wealth and power. Through high and low, through bog and wood he'd searched for the fabled gemstone. The journey had nearly lost him his life, for the path was perilous and many foes did he face. Low and behold it was in the Illuminated Marsh, guarded by a million venomous fireflies, and nestled deep in the roots of an ancient willow tree. It caught the corner of his eye as a twinkle in the reeds, and now that it was unearthed, it shone as brightly as the moon. As he gazed upon its thrumming glow, a kaleidoscope of images flooded his mind's eye; an eternity of moments revealed in an instant. He found himself lost in its faceted glory and became blissful infinity, his sense of self dissolving in the gentle breeze that wafted through the marsh. As with all those who came before him, his body was consumed by the fire flies, and over time his skeletal remains were woven through by the roots of the ancient willow. King Cedric was never seen again, now a part of the Illuminated Marsh, and a single timeless memory in the Jewel of Incandescent Truth.
