While a mild wind was blowing around dusty shelves of library, Elena noticed a book on the table.While she was approaching the book, the wind becoming harsh, pages of the book was changing continuously. She was very curios .When she came close near the book, she found herself in a deep vacancy. When she  woke up,  she felt herself in a fairy tale. Everywhere was full of trees and flowers of different colors and smells very well.Where was she?She saw a white bunny who said “I am late, I am late”.

As the bunny with glowing white fur ran towards Elena, Elena’s foot tripped on a giant  eraser and the beautiful girl fell to the ground.  Closing her eyes tightly in fear, Elena’s long blond hair fell over her face.  The rabbit slowly approached Elena and whispered:
 “I was coming to you too.”
 Elena let out a scream as soon as she opened her eyes.  Birds with paper wings and pen-tipped beaks were flying in the sky.

Thinking that the forest was stunning, Elena asked the rabbit next to her, “Where is this place?”“Hello Elena, this is a fairy tale forest, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll take you to a wonderful place,” said the rabbit, swirling around Elena cheerfully. Elena followed the rabbit, impressed by the joy of the rabbit and the beauty of the forest.

As they were walking through the forest , suddenly it got dark  and it started to get cold.Elena was very surprised at that moment. Heavy snowfall began with the falling of darkness. Seeing that Elena was scared, the rabbit hugged her and started to grow. It  took Elena in its arms and protected her from the cold. While Elena was in the rabbit’s warm embrace, she saw a huge emerald door in the distance.

Elena asked the rabbit:

“What is that intriguing door?”

“It’s a gorgeous dimension where each person can be whatever they want” said the rabbit.

Elena was extremely fascinated, astonished and impatient, suddenly, while they were getting closer to the entrance for this amazing world appeared a giant caterpillar.

The caterpillar moved forward the girl and asked her: “What brings you here darling?”,

Elena  got scared at the weird  animal and started looking all over him.

12

13
“What a mysterious creature”, thought Elena. No doubt the caterpillar was the guard of the intriguing emerald door whose bright shine dazzled her as she felt an urgent compelling force to advance forward.  She wondered what she could spot once she crossed the threshold, while she indulged herself in the belief of a fantasy dimension where she would long for becoming an extraordinary being with outstanding magical powers to fit in anywhere.  Overwhelmed as well as excited, Elena begged the giant caterpillar for permission to step forward into the unknown daunting dimension. No sooner had she set foot in an enormous glimmering lounge full of multiple reflecting mirrors than she felt as light as a bird about to fly.

When Elena touched the doorknob with great curiosity, the door that was waiting for this moment opened slowly. The rabbit was also looking at the place where they came from. The rabbit was small, he was holding Elena’s hand tightly. This was the city of secrets in the land of secrets. They called it Istanbul. They had come to a timeless time. There were people of all cultures from all ages. I wonder if they had become invisible. Since no one was looking at them, it must have been. There were huge buildings. Libraries, bookstores. Each book told a secret, this city in secrets. The books were as fascinating as the snake hair of Medusa in the Yerabatan Cistern. Elena felt that Hagia Sophia was calling her. To present the old time books in his treasury. He set off again. He entered the library with the voice he heard in the Sultan Ahmet Mosque. The books of every age, every culture were in his hands now. When he took the red book at the bottom, it was too late when he realized that he had opened the door of a great tunnel. She hugged the rabbit in fear. They were falling fast into the unknown.

There was a deafening noise at that moment. Then, they fell into a deposits of water. They lost their consciousness for a while.When Elena awoke, she found herself in a partially dark room. As her eyes adjusted to the darkness, she surveyed the room and noticed something.A little ahead of her, she noticed the books standing in a pile and chatting among themselves. She saw the big book that looked like their leader.While she was standing up her knees ,she saw the rabbit wasn’t moving. She tried to get up on her feet. She was just going in the darkness while noise was getting intolerable. When she dreamt unconsciously , she woke up with voices in her head, took quiet steps toward the book.When she opened the book and read its first page, she couldn’t believe what she saw.
18

19
There was a huge golden lock on the page. And underneath it was a Latin inscription. Under the lock was written ‘festina lente’. Elena thought she had experienced all the strange and mysterious events she could ever experience in her life. She looked helplessly at the rabbit. The rabbit began to move on the ground. Elena laid the book slowly on the antique mahogany table and went to the rabbit. The rabbit was starting to come to his senses. Elena made him drink some water. ‘You must help me,’ she said. After the rabbit regained his senses, he said, ‘I will help you, but the children who came before you failed. You have to be determined and fearless,” he said. Elena was so curious and excited that she forgot all her worries and said “okay”. They went to the book and the rabbit began to tell him. ‘Once you unlock this lock, you’ll be where you want to be and who you want to be. But the Latin word here is ‘hurry slowly’. You have to be both patient and quick. The key is inside this room. The lock and key only come together at the full moon. As the rabbit said this, it slowly began to disappear. ‘One hour’ and ‘You have to believe in yourself’ as the rabbit disappears. Elena only had one hour.
20

21
She immediately repeated what the rabbit had said and the sentence in the book.’ You must be determined and fearless. Hurry slowly. ‘He thought for a moment and then began to look around for the key. He felt as if he were between the pages of the book. A sentence caught his eye for a moment; ‘The lock is in the lock. The lock is in you.’ What did that mean now?
22

23

The rabbit said to Elena, “Don’t cry, you need to calm down and think about what you can do, look, I’m here, I’m with you, calm down.” Elena hugged the rabbit tightly and cried even harder, and finally she regained herself. she calmed down and started to think about this sentence “lock in the lock, the lock is in you” what did this mean Elena was lost in thought but she was very afraid that the time would run out and the rabbit would disappear again. all of a sudden she thought that the lock might actually be her own. “The lock may be inside me, rabbit.” Elena rushed to the rabbit with excitement, smiling slowly and Elena now confidently shouted “I’M THE LOCK” and then a key and a door slowly appeared.

Elena was shocked. She was completely petrified, she had no idea what to do to find the rabbit. Elena stood for hours in front of that door waiting for something to happen, just before she was about to lose all hope a very distant but definite voice said “it’s time for you to go home my dear.”. At that exact moment Elena’s mind was clouded by all the memories of her past and in the blink of an eye she was back where her journey had begun; in that huge dusty library.
At first the girl was confused: why was she there again? Why did that rumor bring her back to that damn library?
Elena could not find her calm and in a moment of pure nervousness she took back the book with which she had arrived in that wonderful place, but it was all in vain. All Elena wanted was to escape from that world she hated and return to that land that gave her much comfort.Suddenly Elena heard a mysterious voice: “You want to go back there, right?”
Surprised, she turned to try to figure out who she was talking about, but saw no one in the library. “Hey, where are you looking?”, Always the same voice. “I’m talking to you, little girl!” At that point, Elena turned her gaze to a dusty old book. From there came his strange voice. The girl took the book, opened it, and immediately the room filled with black smoke. “Thanks for releasing me, I can finally breathe clean air!”. A mysterious boy had appeared in the library. “Where do you come from?” Elena asked with an astonished expression. “From the book, of course”, the boy replied, then continued: “My name is Cerberus, the guardian of the Underworld.” “Cerberus? The three-headed dog?” the girl asked. “That’s right, it’s me! I took this form only momentarily, to talk to you. You want to go back there, in the book, right? “” Yes, that’s what I want, I don’t want to live in this world anymore ”
“Well, I can help you. Let me explain: all the books in this library lead to a parallel dimension to reality, obviously there are more books and less powerful books. What you have found is one of the strongest: I can bring you back inside, but you will have to give up all hope of being able to come back here, actually. So what do you say? Is it really what you want? “” Yes, I have no doubts. I want to go back to the book! ”Elena replied with conviction.
Then Cerberus shook hands with the girl, who immediately found herself in the dimension she so desired.

“What are you doing here, girl ?! I thought you were in your dimension, safe !!” cried the Bunny, hopping beside Elena, who was looking at him with pursed lips. “Bunny, why are you so mad? I like it here and I’m not going back to reality. I talked to a guy named Cerberus, he brought me here. Aren’t you happy to see me? I thought we were friends!” the bunny looked at her, furious “well my dear, normally i would have been really happy to see you, but this time i am not! you are in danger my lord, here you can really die and i will not let that happen, ok? Cerberus actually is not a friend, but he’s just a monster who deceived you! Remember, in your life you have many friends, many things to do! You can’t just live here, okay? I’ll find a way out of here. ” He said: completely panicked. Then he took Elena’s hand and led her away from there. The rabbit was actually afraid of Cerberus, but he had to help his friend Elena. She was just a normal girl; so he jumped next to a big tree, a weeping willow. The leaves were scattered on the ground, and Elena stared in amazement at the big tree. Then he pointed at him “Why are we here?” he asked. The Rabbit looked at her and suddenly touched the mighty trunk. The wood immediately changed shape, becoming a small and pretty pink door. The Rabbit sighed “This door will take you to your true dimension. I don’t want anything from you, okay? Go back to your life and live it, whatever happens. You are loved, Elena. Please don’t be afraid!” I’m not the Cerberus, I can’t hurt you because I’m your friend. Whether you remember me or not, that doesn’t matter anymore and Elena stared at the big tree in amazement. Then he pointed at him “Why are we here?” he asked. The Rabbit looked at her and suddenly touched the mighty trunk. The wood immediately changed shape, becoming a small and pretty pink door. The Rabbit sighed “This door will take you to your true dimension. I don’t want anything from you, ok?

life and live it, whatever happens. You are loved, Elena. Please, don “don’t be afraid! I’m not the Cerberus, I can’t hurt you because I’m your friend. Whether you remember me or not, that doesn’t matter anymore and Elena looked at the big tree in amazement. Then she pointed at it” Why Are we here? “she asked. The Rabbit looked at her and suddenly touched the mighty trunk. The wood immediately changed shape, becoming a cute little pink door. The Rabbit sighed” This door will take you to your true dimension. I don’t want anything from you, okay? Go back to your life and live it no matter what. You are loved, Elena. Please don’t be afraid!

A few minutes pass and a series of laughter begins. She feels weird, tired and dizzy, what was going on? Wasn’t he with his rabbit friend a few minutes ago? It did not matter much, because the memories were already beginning, as in a dream She opened her eyes and found herself surrounded by her friends, on a sofa, with a bottle of beer in her hand, she was just drunk and, probably, would have forgotten her for everything the day. Perhaps the memories could disappear from her mind, but not from her heart, and perhaps one day she would return to that magical world, with the help of a bottle of beer, or without.
