As he walked, the forest began to look different. He didn't see any bamboo. Instead, there were bushes with long leaves. The ecosystem was now very abnormal. Peter knew he was in the Magic Marsh.

他繼續走著,叢林開始變得詭異。這里沒有任何竹子,只有長著長葉子的灌木叢。這里的植物都很反常。彼得心知自己已經走進了那片魔法沼澤地。

Now he was tired and thirsty. He was afraid. Being lost in the marsh could be fatal. When people entered it, they never came out.

他又渴又累,驚恐萬分。在沼澤地里迷路是致命的。人們經常有去無回。

At last, he found a pond. Flowers grew around it. The blossoms smelled like the best perfume. He felt relaxed so he drank some water and fell asleep. When he awoke, he saw an evil dwarf staring at him.

最后,他終于找到了一處水塘。水塘周邊生長著鮮花,散發出陣陣香味。他放松下來,喝了一些池塘里的水,隨后就睡著了。他醒來時,發現一個可怕的侏儒在盯著自己看。

What are you doing here? it asked. The dwarf spoke in a strange dialect.

“你在這里干什么?”侏儒問道,它的口音很奇怪。

I'm lost, said Peter. "Can you help me?"
