DISPYRIA THE JOURNEY TO AELYREA - THE STORY © 2019 by Juergen Walzer
INTERMISSION - THE PROFESSOR
Again, Josh visits the professor, who accompanied him during his first crisis and finally saved him. He desperately asks him to send him back to his demonic dream world - whatever the cost. The professor looks at him seriously and tells Josh an ancient legend of a female demon named Aelyrea. She possesses an almost omnipotent power and has created an extra-dimensional realm for herself. Driven by a curse, Aelyrea catches souls of peculiar people and onsumes them to maintain her own life force. The professor confesses to Josh that once he has already crossed the border to Aelyrea's realm. But he couldn't tell him the reason why at the moment. One can only get there via a creature called "Twister". This horribly distorted and cursed being only appears when a person manages to feel a moment of highest happiness and a moment of greatest despair at the same time within his soul. Before the outbreak of the virus
this was only possible for very emphatic people. The professor gives Josh a handsized piece of a mirror, which lets you look into the world of Aelyrea. Josh exactly knows the pattern and colour of the glass. It comes from the mirror that has
been inherited in his family for generations. There he saw his own evil self for the first time.
