October Prompt #1 - Arrival by Arvata October Prompt #1 - Arrival by Arvata
It was closing time, already past the hours of twilight as the brown-furred grem loyally cleaned around his flowershop, doing his usual last-minute tasks to make sure the store's old lady boss wouldn't have too much work in the morning. Efficient and quiet, Kai was well adjusted to letting his thoughts flow freely as he worked, and it was not until a large sheet of purple suddenly illuminated the entire street around him that he snapped out of his trance to look up, met with the breathtaking sight of a giant flaming meteor soaring the skies above him.

It was terrifying, yet undeniably beautiful to behold. As the source of light slowly moved its way past them, the many shadows of the city obediently swung and stretched around their environment as if to give space to this new, mysterious phenomenon. Halted in his movements, the grem followed the meteor with his gaze, speechless in wonder of its origins, when to his surprise, it collided in a massive explosion of light in the forest not too far from his location.

Hesitantly, he finished the remainder of his work and, locking the store, turned towards the direction of the forest where the meteor had struck. Should he?

His feet answered the question before he had even properly thought about it, and before he knew it he had reached the dark outskirts of the woods. Somehow, seeking out this unknown force seemed right, a feeling of unfamiliar urgency growing within him for every step he took, for every inch he came closer. Something, or.. perhaps someone?... wanted him to find them.

Also, I'm doing character questions, so here's one for Kai! 
Do you have a favourite flower? Is it edible, or not?^^

I'm happy you find the piece immersive, thank you so much! ;v; Don't worry, he's a cautious fellow! Well, mostly anyways.

As for your question:
Kai: "I'll probably go with the chamomile flower. It has a modest, simplistic kind of beauty to it and is also good for its healing properties. It also reminds me of a friend I have.."
