That night acorn dreamt about the first time she met her husband 7 years ago...

Edipus Solverlabs II and his son Prince Pocadmin were hosting a large get-together at the Solverlabs family Estate.  it was a large acreage, surrounded by cobblestone fence. At the center of the property was a huge Castle roughly 75 blocks high . It had been created hundreds of years prior. Nobody knew exactly how old it was. But the solverlabs family told stories of divine lineage.. that their bloodline was tied to the heavens and the creators of the entire planet of cubes. And that the castle was created shortly after the birth of the entire planet of cubes.

Every year the family hosted a large group of the most peaceful and brave citizens in the land, Inviting them into their estate for a large dinner party in the ballroom at the center of the castle. Acorn and her mother had done lots of volunteer work assisting homeless and hungry people in the area, and were therefor included on the guest list every year.

Branch had known POC admin ever since the survival games , when they battled side by side against legions of zombies and spiders to clear the area in preparation for a village to be built near the Solverlabs kingdom.  the Prince had hired branch to guard the doors of the castle during the dinner party that evening.

Mid afternoon large numbers of guests began arriving, and one by one branch checked their names off of the guest list. When acorn walked with her mother gracefully up the stairs to the castle, she saw branch standing in front of the door holding the guest list. He looked up from the list of names with a big smile on his face. " name please?" He said. " acorn Trail, and this is my mother Stream Trail." she said. 

He looked back down at the guest list and checked their names off of the list with his quill. " okay! You're all set. Have a good time at the party! " he still had a big smile on his face and acorn felt as though she knew him from somewhere. Although she could not place her finger on it. There was just something about him that seemed familiar.

Suddenly a blood curdling screem rang out from somewhere inside the castle.

One of the guards burst out of the door from the ballroom entrance. 

" there's a maniac inside and he's placing TNT blocks everywhere!" He yelled with a distraught look on his face. Behind him all of the 50 or so guests that branch had already checked off of the list, were screaming, stampeding towards the exit on a collision course with branch the other guard and acorn and her mother.

Branch immediately grabbed acorn and her mother by the arms and leapt off of the staircase and into the courtyard fountain below.

Just as the concussively loud explosion rang out shaking the grounds and sending plumes of smoke and dust shooting out of the lower levels of the castle, Acorn awoke from her dream. She jerked her eyes open and sat up in the darkness. The torch had burned out sometime in the night. But she could hear her husband breathing heavily in his sleep. The sounds of sheep and cows baaa'ing and moo'ing above ground told her that it must be morning.

" branch dear! " She cooed , " its morning honey, rise and shine! We have a "DISPENSER" to find!" 

The husband and wife emerged from their hole in the ground , and continued once again on their journey. Looking occasionally at their treasure map to ensure they were headed in the right direction.  several miles down the path, they came to a large Valley. the edges were quite steep , and there would have been no way safely across if not for a fairly sturdy looking wooden bridge offering passage. They approached the bridge, branch leading. He was just about to take the first step on to the wooden planks when they both heard it. A loud, violent rustling beneath their side of the bridge. It sounded as though something very large was coming out from underneath. A low, raspy, nasty voice from beneath called out,                 " WHOOO the H€LLL IS TRYING TO CROSSS MY BRIDGE?! " 

They both jumped back and drew their swords.
