Magical Gardens’ Story
Once upon a time, 2 magicians were living on the Windy Mountain. Their names were Zoran and Arag. They were good friends but with time, they couldn’t get along together anymore.
Zoran was only interested in good magic, whereas Arag was fascinated with evil, dark magic. His main goal was to become the most powerful wizard in the world.
One day, when Zoran was celebrating his 100th birthday, he received an interesting gift from his gnome-friend. It was a book called: The Almanac of Nature Knowledge.
He quickly became fascinated by the book and started to use the spells and tricks he found there to create the unique garden. A place, where Nature could truly exist in its own rhythm and expand the way it wanted.
After some time, the magical creatures from around the world started to come to the Magical Garden to make it their home.
Zoran was really happy about the progress his Garden is making. What’s more, he found a love of his life- a beautiful fairy called Tuuli.
It turned out that Arag was in love with her as well. He hated Zoran because of his success with the Magical Garden and the news that Tuuli is now with him made him furious.
One day, he tricked Tuuli and imprisoned her with his evil spell. Zoran wanted to set her love free as soon as possible. It started the war of the two worlds: The Good and The Evil.
Zoran got the help from Tuuli’s four brothers and The King of Dwarves. Both him and Arag turned into dragons during the battle.
After a long fight, finally, The White Magic won and Tuuli was free again.
Easy to guess, Arag started to plan his revenge immediately. He attacked again, this time, with the willingness to kill. Luckily, Zoran and Tuuli’s brother used the Reverse Spells’ chain to bounce the powerful Death Spell.
As a result, Arag was trapped in a dragon’s body forever and the dark cave became his new home.
The area around the cave became dark and scary. They were named Mroczysko (The Gloomery).
Zoran was also deadly wounded. He couldn’t survive as a human being, so his soul made Magical Garden’s stones and waterfalls his new home.
Tuuli’s brothers are now protecting the garden, hoping that one day a Hero will come who will find a way to set Zoran’s soul free. Who knows, maybe you are this hero?
