He was still in quite a bind, wondering exactly what he was supposed to do in order to get into that secret location. If he was going to mass produce that special wood material and the rare metal alloy that was in that forest, he was going to have to improvise to get in there it seemed. But if he knew anything about his clan, he could account for them being as thorough as possible and that they didn't mess around when it came to hiding things from those they felt unwelcome to learn their secrets. He wasn't any good with genjutsu and he knew that, so trying to understand how the actual barrier worked to try and bypass it with another genjutsu would be a waste of time. He also had a feeling that he couldn't see the forest from above, believing that from the stories he heard about this place, it was actually inside of the humongous mountain and he couldn't simply hover above it in order to see its location, even without any genjutsu layer being involved. His next thought was to travel through the ground in order to at least sense where this forest was after getting far enough under the mountain, but despite him believing that the clan couldn't put a genjutsu to 'throw' him off of the path, he highly doubted that something as simple as the Mole Hiding Jutsu would be unaccounted for. The clan probably had several deadly traps that would go off if he got anywhere near the vicinity without the proper materials to get in.
That was his only option though, he felt the most comfortable dealing with earth and wind and if he got caught in a bad situation, at least he had an entire encasing of earth he could use to try and protect himself. Lex took a few more moments running this plan through his head before finally settling on it being his only shot, the man starting to perform his Mole Hiding Jutsu as he halfway seeped into the ground before he suddenly heard something call out to him. "I had a feeling you would try to force your way into the forest Lex, quite typical. Here, I have the flower in order for you to get inside so you don't have to go through the hassle." the voice claimed, making Lex abruptly stop his descent into the earth below before he turned around to see who it was. It was none other than his clansman Qaito, his traditional black robe with blue trimming on him. "Well... I'm not going to lie, I doubt I would have gotten too far in there without running into trouble." he exclaimed, rubbing the back of his head with a sheepish smile before walking up to him and grabbing the flower.
As unamused as the teenage Prailius seemed, he didn't stop Lex from taking the flower before he pointed towards what seemed like a random tree, catching the older Prailius' attention. "See that tree over there, the one with the mark at the trunk of it? One meter below it has a Prailius rose growing there. It looks like that there is nothing at that spot and that it's normal ground, but that is another infinite genjutsu making it seem that way, when in fact there is a small hole there for the flower to grow and for sunlight, air, and rain to interact with it. If you ever find yourself needing a last resort flower to get inside, remember that there is one at that spot." he exclaimed. Lex hummed in thought as he looked at the two-toned colored flower in his hand, then at the tree that had the Prailius clan insignia etched into the trunk of it. He could only hope that there would be no need for it, but time had a funny way of forcing people's hand in dire situations.
Lex's vision slowly faded to perfection as he waited a moment to catch his bearings. It was so simple to him now, how to get inside without much effort. He would make his way towards the tree he remembered seeing in his vision slowly counting his steps from the original location of the infinite genjutsu of the mountain side and out towards the tree. With over four hundred years or so passing by since that variation of Lex being alive, the landscape was bound to naturally change tremendously since then. Without too much trouble though, he managed to spot the etched Prailius clan insignia on one of the trunks of the trees. If Minerva was watching, he was sure this was going to look rather strange to her on what he was about to do next, but he knew he needed that flower, so he knelt down on one knee and slowly reached his hand out towards the ground, making it seemingly seep through the forest floor one inch at a time. Eventually he would feel the resemblance of a flower and plucked it from its stem, slowly lifting it up from its hole before finally being able to see it come into view. In his grasp was the very flower that he had envisioned, a rose that had both silver and deep blue petals. He looked towards Minerva with a smirk as he stood up while sliding the stem of the flower into his breast pocket of his jacket. "I think we're all set to go now. On to the next treasure!" he said excitedly before heading towards the mountain side once again.
