After years of searching, they were finally here. The toll of the search forgotten,  Anders and Micah stood before the lost door to the Room of Cycles.

It all started when the key was discovered among the ruins of a Mayan temple. According to legend, the Room of Cycles controlled the world’s weather systems. Reliefs depicting the seasons were cut into the stone door, and in the center was a keyhole.

“Shall we?” said Anders.

“After you,” replied Micah.

“But you have the key,” said Anders.

Micah shook his head. “You do. Did you drop it?”

“Did I… Oh shoot.”
