The path leading left, initially parallel with the main hallway you're standing in right now, quickly makes a 90° turn to the right. If you want to see what lies beyond, you'll have to go in and explore.

You think about your options. There are three ways you could go: to the left of the original path through the large rugged opening, to the right of the original path through this portal here, or straight down the original path until it veers off to the right for sights unseen. Then in addition to these options is the separate matter of the orb. You look at it, sitting there motionless on the ground. You consider various factors and ultimately decide that it would be best to leave the ball there, just for now while you explore. It's too heavy, you decide, to carry on this exploration. You'll just have to come back for it once you've reached the end of this mini-adventure. Well, assuming you can find your way back, that is. This is a maze, after all, and you don't have anything with you which could help you to keep track of where you've been or where you're going. All the same, -- "Come on, Torchic!" -- you call to your Pokémon and together the two of you set off at a brisk pace through the opening to the right. You quickly turn left as you pass through, march straight toward the corner, hang a right and ...

Ten feet in front of you is another wall face. To the left is still more wall, but to the right the path continues. You hear the wailing again. It's much more audible than before. You decide to press on around this corner; and so, turning right, you come upon the next short stretch of hallway. This one is a little longer, and you can see at the end of it that there are two ways you could go: to the left or to the right. As you face this direction, the wailing seems to be coming from your left.

What do you do?

Pokémon in the area:
a Combee lazily flying towards the path leading right

FFA Inventory:
x1 parchment
x1 blue orb (left behind on floor of hallway)
Alice went on with her Torchic at her side. She looked down at him, momentarily distracted by thought. Who knew they would ever be a team like this, so comfortable together, relying on each other? A smile cracked on her face, and she was about to speak warmly to him, until a buzzing distracted her.

A Combee was flying ahead at a leisurely pace. Apparently for those who lived in the maze full time, there was no rush to consider. Well, lucky them. Alice was glad it was only a Combee, though, and not a Beedrill or Vespiquen, or even a rather antagonistic Volbeat. These things were cute, at least.

"It's going right... Avoiding that sound. It sounds nasty." She relayed to the bird instead, letting it turn to that direction, watching after it. "But I think we should go left. The nasty surprises so far have led us in the right direction... Not that we'd know what lay the other paths, that is. But I think I'm right. I always am!" The trainer added jokingly, but felt too preoccupied to really make something of it. "What do you think? We're in this together, after all."
