I move through the forest, swiftly and quietly; Passing through the blue colored trees, kicking through stacks of fuchsia colored feathers left by teaka birds and feeling the cool breeze sinking into my skin. I pause for a quick glance around the misty forest, making sure no creature was about to attack me. I continue on with my run hoping to get to my destination as fast as possible. I turn a left, a right, and another left before slowing down to a jog and coming to a complete stop as I see the eerily inviting yet mesmerizing glow of a pond. My current favorite spot in this wild, menacing place we call The Glowed. I work my way through the damp ground, finally finding a spot under the leaves of a short tree-like plant we named floag. Its big, soft, somewhat feathery leaves will hide me from any creature lurking in the forest. Creatures of unusual kind; some deceivingly beautiful while others conspicuously repulsive. Beautiful or not they have the sole purpose and mission to kill and in the most creative ways. I sigh as I let all my uneasiness and distress flutter along with the breeze. The sweet smell of bojin berries surrounding me puts me to ease as I stare at the glowing pond in front of me. My left hand slips to the ground, feeling the moss covered pebbles while my right holds on to my trooper gun. The pond rests in the most dangerous part of the forest which makes me wonder what creatures dwell under its depths. Froag bushes surround the pond giving it a dreamlike yet unearthly look and every once in a while bright purple insects would come in groups to take a sip of the water. Ive been drawn to the pond after coming across this part of The Glowed in one of our missions and ever since then, during my free time, I would secretly go to see it. I gaze at it one more time as I slip into a distant memory. A memory that i held so close to my consciousness. A memory that turned me into a warrior. A memory that led me to The Glowed.
