I walked towards this leaf-like plant. At once, I knew I had never seen this kind of plant before. I reached out my hand to touch it. The very second my fingers grazed its surface, something felt wrong, as if I was ill or had a pounding headache. But it was so soft that I wanted to touch it again. That moment the world started to spin around me, my legs went numb and my eyes started to close. The next thing I knew, the ground around me looked like it was dropping into an endless abyss. ‘What is this plant?’ were the last words that came to my head as I slipped into a dreamlike state.
