However suddenly the tranquillity of the flight is broken as a wave of energy appears to emanate slowly from deep within the rift causing the image of the castle trapped inside to warp and distort. The airship turns around to try and steer clear of the disturbance but it is without luck as a wave of red energy overtakes the ship causing the vessel to simply vanish.
