Absolutely delighted and enthralled with their new found knowledge, they could not get to the sage fast enough to tell them the answer.
Busting in through his bedroom they started to blurt out
“I’ve found the…”
...but the sage was not there.
They checked all of the rooms, the kitchen, the garden, the rest of the grounds, but they were nowhere to be found.
“...probably getting groceries.”
Anxiously waiting for his arrival they at first could not sit down more than a few minutes, but eventually, they grew tired.
In the evening, the sage came back home and found the enlightened individual sound asleep on the couch.
Gently waking them up, they asked of their progress.
“Have you found the answer?”
The enlightened individual, remembered their eye opening experience,
...but could not for the life of them remember what they found out.
