Lunch spot

An elder woman stepped out of the massive shadow the bike road cast on the path I was supposed to follow. I felt hunger dawn on me. The woman looked rested and calm. She told me I looked stressed, that what I needed was a good rest in the shade, and I could also make…

Exit at the beginning

I ventured into yet another hallway. Pretty straightforward with nothing of note and a single paper thin door at the end. The paper retracted into the wall after the slightest touch. There was a room on the other side, a space I found most familiar but took me a second to recognize. It was the…

Maze managed

I walked down a small dark hallway until I came upon a small room, where the “Trick Master ” was waiting for me. – It seems congratulations are in order. I think you crossed the maze in record time and you managed to take down every single tree I planted, every blockage I worked so…

The door

I was so spooked by the recent encounter that I barely noticed the big gray door standing in front of me. There was no sign, no handle, no lock but there was something off about its texture, it didn’t look solid. I got closer and stretched out my hand, touching it ever so slightly. The…

The wanderer

A few more turns. A few more cuts. A few more dead ends and I was finally on a single path, the one I hoped would lead me to an exit. Steps echoed through the empty halls, and sure enough there was one young man, pacing back and forth along one of the walls, muttering…

The code

I made my way back, choosing another path, one blockage I had not cut down before. Two more awaited me before I came upon a dead end, a small room with a tube hung across the wall, a rolled up scroll. I reached for the tube as someone cleared their throat to my left. –…

Unusual correspondence

Every passageway from there on was covered in thick, leafy vines, but lucky for me they were vulnerable to one of the HM’s I had acquired. Cut was more than effective in creating a path, pratically melting away any obstacle, but there were so many blockages, so many paths, so many options that I soon…

The first hurdle

The first corridor was extensive, covered in bamboo panels from top to bottom and some of them radiated a soft white light. It narrowed and widened several times before coming to a wall where a teenage girl was leaning, waiting, chewing and popping bubblegum, loudly. She had her headphones on and was staring at the…

One way out

I hadn’t slept so comfortably since I had left home. The bed was exquisite, both in comfort and temperature. It was actually impressive, almost like the bed itself adapted to my every need. One of the edges was torn open from overuse and I could see a variety of feathers and some of them shone…

Trick… or treat?

The night had settled in by the time I came across a small house on the road. A small plaque stood outside, advertising the wondrous “Trick house”. Perhaps they would provide me with some shelter and save me the trouble of having to go all the way back to town. I knocked but got no…

Family outing

The road beyond was wide open and inviting. There was not much day left but I could still venture out a bit more before resting. There was noise up ahead and I saw a woman laughing, gesturing across the street. I approached and noticed a young man holding a child, dressed up as pikachu. The…

A wild Birch has appeared!

I made my way out of the tall grass, crossing paths with several wild pokémon I had already seen and captured. It was time to move on from this place, to search for new hunting grounds and new pokémon. A white figure could be seen coming down the road towards me, bathed in the light…
