|Layton and Luke get half-way up the storyteller's tower of puzzles... they find a beautiful garden, and a stairway leading to the bedroom of a little girl. This must be where Espella lived when she was younger... they find a doll of Espella, and a picture book titled "The First Story" on her bed.|
"There was a bad witch in the town. All of the carrots in the field disappeared, and all the money in the bank was turned into pumpkins. The people of the town had to put up with all kinds of mischief from the witch. They didn't know what to do. Then, one day, a brave young girl appeared and said to the townsfolk:
"When the witch uses witchcraft, she always uses a big stick, doesn't she? So if we take away her stick, we'll be able to stop her!"
After hearing this, the people of the town set a trap for the witch and managed to capture her. At her trial, the bad witch said this to the people:
"Even now, the legendary Great Witch Bezella is living here in this town. Bezella is the queen of all the witches! She is the one who gives us witches life!"
The townsfolk punished the witch, and peace was restored to the town once more. To this day, Bezella is still hiding somewhere in the town... But the brave townsfolk will not be beaten by the bad witches."
They go further up the tower, and find the storyteller's room. It is filled with all kinds of papers, artwork, etc... there's a photo (wait, photos aren't supposed to exist in this world) of two young girls, that look like a younger Espella and Darklaw. Both are wearing matching pendants.
Layton solves a puzzle involving a melody shown in the stain glass ceiling, and opens a path to the roof. The storyteller is up there, still alive. He says he can no longer tolerate Layton's meddling in his story, and writes in his book to make the knight armors come alive and start attacking him. Luke passes a sword to him, and he memorizes the moves written to them in order to defeat them.
He tells the storyteller that his story has been twisted by elements outside his control... that their being here right now is proof that he is no longer the weaver of this tale.
Storyteller: "The entire truth behind Labyrinthia is sealed by a single spell. That's right... the final spell. When that spell is invoked, Labyrinthia's true form will become clear to all."
"It is... a spell that has always been hidden within plain view. Essentially... the final spell is concealed at the start."
Layton then calls him out for the fact that Bezella is being tried in court for supposedly killing him, even though he is clearly still alive. He then tells him that the person being accused is Espella Cantabella, which in itself is different from what the storyteller had written. Layton says he will now go to court, but not to stand in the gallery, or join the defense... He now knows the true identity of the Great Witch Bezella. He will stand in court as an inquisitor.
