The protagonist survived his first deadly assault on his life. He was saved by a charming figure. What next? Go on and read to find out 😀
There was something peculiar regarding the lady named Toriel.
As if the events that transpired around me were not peculiar enough; I could feel something when I held on to Toriel’s large, fluffy hands.
Her demeanor was a pleasant one. The traits spoke for themselves; it is not easy to find a random stranger who would treat you that way, especially not on the surface world.
Still, she held on to my hand, for reasons yet clear to me. Her insistence to call me her ‘child’ was unrealistic, perhaps even ludicrous, but I refused to interrupt.
At one point, she did ask about me.
“My child,” she uttered. “What may your name be?”
“I am Biron,” I replied with a smile as I rubbed off sweat.
Toriel giggled. “That is a wonderful name, my child.”
She gripped my left hand tightly as we patrolled what is called The Ruins, an otherworldly area decorated by purple bricks and colorful leaves; perhaps remnants of a glorious kingdom of the past. Countless stories were told regarding kingdoms and empires that sank without trace, but never had I set foot on a single site.
However, my most recent discovery presented itself as a potential breakthrough.
I encountered frogs and flies, whom are all described as Monsters. They meant no harm, even though some stared down my soul with eagle eyes; my discomfort of roaming foreign territory, or just a natural reaction to change.
“I want to know, Toriel.”
She turned to me with a warm smile; her exposed upper teeth became more prominent, somewhat making her look increasingly adorable. “What is it, my child?”
“Where are you taking me exactly?”
Toriel’s smile remained. “Home.”
“Yes, my child. Home. It is where you belong.”
A charmed beauty she is. Somehow, she reminded me of my own mother, who would be worried sick had she kept in touch with my shenanigans.
The protagonist is going to Toriel’s home. Is this a good thing, or could it bring up a different issue altogether? Stay tuned, guys and girls!
