Today became the day Pepper felt like she should go on a mini adventure to take a break from her knightly duties. Protecting the castle including Princess Hema from any kind of danger seemed fun but sometimes, she wanted to goof off and not do anything when it comes to lazy days.
"Where should I go today?" Pepper wondered but thought of an idea on what to do. "I know. I'll go on a little adventure all by myself," she added with a smile and off she started to walk.
Pepper began her adventure by leaving the castle town and out into the fields. Along the way, she merrily hummed a tune to keep her spirits high.
"Man, I travel a lot with Nova and Astrid but today it's Pepper's solo adventure," Pepper said as she put her hands back behind her head. "This is fun when nobody can tell me 'no' or where I want to go 'cause only I will decide where the wind blows."
Pepper continued walking down the path in the fields until she came to a complete stop nearby the ocean's water surface. Just getting a glimpse at the water made Pepper shudder reminding her of what happened during her past and almost getting attacked by a shark.
"I hate going into the water," she said feeling frightened after seeing a slight of water and took a few steps back. "But at least I came prepared with this balloon suit I recently purchased with my hard-earned gold," she added and dug into her pack to pull out her red colored ballooned suit that had seven buttons a matching colored elastic belt and the cute red shoes that go with the suit.
She quickly put on her balloon suit and felt a bit stiff as it was her first time trying it on. She turned around a bit and checked out herself and smiled like she's really enjoying her new outfit.
"I look so cute in this outfit," Pepper giggled. "I do hope I get to show this to my friends. I'm so lucky to buy one in my favorite color red."
Pepper then noticed a cord attached to her suit, she gave it a quick pull and suddenly... FWOMP! She ballooned up instantly like if she was a pop-up tent!
"Well then!" cried Pepper as she flapped her hands and witnessed herself being a giant red balloon. "Wait till my friends see me being a cute red balloon," she added and then laughed.
The wind then started to blow harder thus lifting Pepper off the ground and carried her over above the ocean water in the sky at the speed of light.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa!" Pepper screamed and flapped her hands frantically and spun right round like a record player from the wind's current.
Eventually, she stopped spinning around and found herself floating over the ocean water. She feels more relaxed now that the crazy wind had calmed down after giving her a surprise to soar into the sky.
"I am high above the ground," Pepper said as she looked down to see the landscape including a few towns. "I bet I can even see my house from here!"
Pepper then decided to have a little fun in the air by performing a couple of acrobatic flips in the air and flying past clouds and popped out every single one of them thus leaving shaped holes.
"Wheeeeeeeeee!" cried Pepper like she's having so much fun flying in the air like a literal hot-air balloon she is. "I know what clouds want to be when they grow up to be bigger clouds... Thunderstorms!" she added and laughed at her own cloud joke.
Speaking of thunderstorms, the clouds have now merged into each other as the sky became darker gray. It was the sign that a rainfall and or a thunderstorm is about to occur any moment. Pepper then realized it is now the time to get her feet back down on the ground.
"The rain is starting to come," Pepper said watching a little bit of rain starting to sprinkle on her and her red ballooned suit. "There could also be a thunderstorm today but I drought it."
Pepper then descended to the ground and eventually landed on both her feet and completely deflated her balloon suit as the rain then evolved from light to heavy. She then ran as fast as she could to find a place for some shelter. She became drenched as her hair went down and her clothing got soaked.
"There must be a cavern or something," Pepper said clutching herself like she's shivering from the cold weather.
Much to her luck, she did find a cavern and quickly ran there and is now covered from the rain. She took a few breaths from the cold rain until she was able to feel like she's warm once again.
"Glad I get to spend all this time with my new balloon suit," Pepper said with a smile on her freckled face. "I can't wait to tell my friends and show them my new balloon suit."
As the rain continued, Pepper stayed in the cave for a while to wait and listened to the rumbling sound from the sky. A lightning strike then came around in a loud booming noise thus startling her as she jumped a bit but was quick to poke fun at the weather.
"There must be a bowling team up there in the clouds who called themselves Lightning because they gained a lot of strikes," Pepper giggled and then laughed at her own pun.
Excellent work! Great story!
Lovely work! X3
Thanks so much Bitty!
