As you look around, you are startled by a realization; this is not the home you left this morning. The address is the same, and the exterior as well, but the inside... You turn to the door you just entered through. Much to your surprise, there is no door there. Surely there must be a way out of this room. You search it with your eyes, and three things stand out. The first is a little black book resting on the table. The second is a painting hanging directly in front of you, which seems to call you to it. The third is the blue rug, which swirls with a bright light. To reach the painting, you will have to cross the rug. Looks like your options have been narrowed to two.
