9/13- Well... the layout is just about finished. We're having scrollbar issues. So move along now.
The warm fall night air surrounds you. Inhaling deeply, you can smell- almost taste- the fresh, crisp air. Sighing to yourself, you continue your evening walk. By now, a warm sunset that looks like a burning fire has erupted in the sky, and deciding that this evening was definetly not one to waste, you sit down in the green-brown grass and settle down to watch the sunset.
Something catches your eye- almost a dark gray blur. You sit up abruptly and look up ahead. A few yards away sits a gelert, looking somewhat pleased with himself for scaring you.
Hello." he smirks, flicking his tail. You feel somewhat relieved that he adresses you first. The shadow gelert pads over to you. "My name is Zap. I see you've found your way to Sunset Hills- where all the forgotten heros remain." Huh? You think. Forgotten heros?
Zap sighs and rolls his eyes. "I know what you're thinking. Forgotten heros? What that?" he mimicks your thoughts, waving his paws for a bit of drama. "Well, you're just going to have to find out. Follow me," he says simply, and begins to walk off. "Oh, and I'll tell you a bit about me along the way to The Caverns..."
Soon after Zap finishes telling you about his likes and dislikes along with his stats, he remains silent for awhile. Finally, the shadow gelert reaches a large valley, with small caves leading into the ground.
Without saying a word. Zap takes you to one of the caverns and leads you down into it. AS you walk down, deep into the earth, the air around you suddenly got much colder and it was almost pitch dark. Suddenly Zap signals for you to halt, and up ahead you can see a dusty old book, laying there. Just merely laying there. Zap pads over to the book, picks it up, then hands it carefully to you.
Zap closed the book and looked away. "So now you know." he murmered softly. "This is the refuge that we are in. Land of Forgotten Heros."
Zap sighs softly, then shakes his head, clearing his thoughts. "Moving on the happier things, I suppose." he says, trying to sound cheery- although you can still detect sorrow in his voice. "My family."
Zap shakes his head slightly and groans. "My little sister Missy is so... so..." Zap cocks his head. "I'm trying to be nice. Missy is so... strange. And everyone pays attention to her- she even has fans who write her mail and stuff." The shadow gelert rolls his eyes.
