As the two dig deeper, the lines between reality and fantasy start blurring. Aru finds a book which tells the story of how a king was captured by a monster and how his daughter had to solve riddles to find him. Aru relates this story to her own reality and starts looking for her father. The tale in the book is depicted beautifully where an animated version explains the event. This scene is a visual treat in every sense of the word.
