Natura Humana Ch. 4: Decisions

Po felt the world shift again, rushing towards something. Po squeezed his eyes shut as tight as possible, afraid of what he would see. As the movement stopped, he could smell the old musty house, and heard the scurrying of mice in its walls. He opened his eyes, and there was the collar as he had found it: left against the side of the house, silver tag worn. No bark greeted him, no thunder of hooves in the field, or laughing of children. The place was becoming one with nature as vines crawled over the house’s roof and the rock wall lost height each day. This place was precious once, but that feeling was only fleeting it seemed. Po’s heart hung heavy in his chest as he moved towards the barn. His gecko moved out from his hiding spot under Po’s mushroom and nestled into the short fur on his forehead, cooing out noises of comfort. The gecko knew of Po’s past, or at least what Po could remember and had the courage to tell. Of how he was once a pampered dog in the life of luxury. Of treats

Po bent down to the collar, nudging it with his nose. Suddenly he felt the world spinning under his feet. It was as though he was both running faster than he had ever run before while also standing completely still. The world jolted to a halt, and he felt his very being shudder within him. As he got his bearing, Po realized the sun had shifted to be high above him. All around him was green grass and the warm smell of a lively farm. Horses grazed in the pasture behind a tall, hand-laid brick wall. He turned to the house which bustled with the sound of a lunch being prepared. Rowdy children were just inside, bickering about whose turn it was to feed the pigs. Po hesitantly poked his head in the doggie door once more and found kibble and fresh water where before there had been only empty bowls. A cat hissed at him and with a mad dash through the kitchen nearly tripped a hard-working mom as she brought food to her children. She wagged a finger at their dirt covered bodies and ordered a

Natura Humana Ch. 2: Treasures

With the strange Wanderer gone, Po relaxed somewhat. He glanced around the barn, trying to imagine what it might have once been like and what it was that the Wanderer had seen in this old place. Perhaps horses had been stabled here, and the weedy expanse he had crossed to get here had been a healthy pasture. How long had it been? How many people lived here, and how many generations had worked the land? Po wandered through the barn as his gecko familiar crawled down his leg and ran up a nearby wall to disappear amongst the cobwebs. In one corner stood a broken broom and rake. In another, a pile of rusted buckets with one wall behind them crumbled away and plants pushing their way in. Looking up found many holes in the ceiling and dappled light shining in, giving the feeling of being underneath a great tree canopy. There was a loft on one short end of the barn, though the steps leading up to it had long fallen. Po cautiously approached the underside of the loft, inspecting the darkness

Natura Humana Ch. 1: Abandoned

Po sat up suddenly, drool-like inky goop splattering from the folds on his face. He gazed around his apartment, unsure what woke him up. He had been dozing peacefully under the side table near the couch while cozily curled up on his favorite blanket when he could’ve sworn he heard a slight whisper. Something itched at the back of his mind, and when a couple good kicks from his back leg didn’t fix it, he stretched and moved about the apartment. All was quiet with the humans that inhabited it gone for the day. Po’s familiar, a small Mediterranean house gecko, scampered down the wall and stared at him unblinkingly for a moment before leaping onto the mushroom on Po’s back. From this perch the two of them went through each room, checking for intruders. When none were found Po plopped down heavily in the middle of the living room. Annoyingly, his mind still itched somewhat. Gazing out the glass door leading to a small balcony, Po caught sight of something shiny sitting on the balcony’s

Miss Mini's Cabin

    Bright sun caressed the leaves above as Luci, a small reddish-brown fungi esk, and Rus, her red squirrel familiar, bounded through the underbrush. They chased the flickering lights on the forest floor together, taking time to watch a pair of birds bicker over the perfect nesting cavity in a tree or pausing to listen to a particularly mystical song sung by an unseen insect. They had no real destination in mind, so it was no surprise when they came to unfamiliar trees. Together they pushed ahead, investigating new rocks, bushes, and even a new stream with confidence.    That confidence waned however as they each caught brief flashes of a

Autumn Lights - Conclusion

                Luci kept running for a good while, not confident that the trickster Ikkit wasn’t actually still following her. When she slowed to a stop, she realized the forest seemed back to normal. She could hear animals rustling around in the leaves around her, and every tree seemed to be put back in its place. Rus chattered angrily and groomed his face trying to calm his nerves. Luci couldn’t help a startled laugh, nerves still on edge from the night’s events.                  Thinking the long night finally over, Luci took a moment to collect her thoughts, only to seem the all too familiar at this point glowing light

    Luci rushed out of the cabin followed quickly by an ecstatic Rus. The lights bobbed up and down and led them on through the woods and towards a babbling stream. The stream had a rocky bottom that gave the surface of the water a rough surface and made walking within a tripping hazard for the average mortal.  Luci and Rus chose to walk along the edge of the water and followed the lights downstream until they disappeared into a small cave. The lights grew dimmer and dimmer the farther they went in, until they couldn’t be seen at all. Luci looked at Rus, and Rus at Luci, then they plunged in.                  The lights struggled to li

    Luci continued to follow the pumpkins, unsure of what else to do. Rus played around her, jumping on top of and even into the pumpkins that were big enough to do so. She joined him in play every once in a while as they walked and even carried Rus for some time on top of a pumpkin with her telekinesis. The pumpkins around them started to dwindle in number, and Luci lowered the pumpkin that Rus was carrying to the ground and he jumped off and joined her close by her side as the darkness of the night began to close in again. Through the darkness, Luci began to hear a very soft song whistling through the trees. It was soft, and as warm as any

    The warm memory gave Luci strength, and she dived headfirst back into the dense undergrowth of the forest. The trees were a comfort, though they exact layout of them seemed slightly off. The magical night seemed to shift trunks around a bit, or add in a few extra trees that shouldn’t be there. She shook off the thought, hopeful that things would go well. As she continued, Luci realized slowly that she had the feeling of being watched. The fur on the back of her neck stood up, and she saw that Rus too was on edge with tail poofed out and steps slow and cautious.      Luci peered into the dark forest, missing the soft glow of the lig

Aeruza - Home Sweet Boundary

    Early morning rays washed across the prairie as a mild breeze made the grasses sigh softly as they brushed against each other. Meadowlarks and dickcissels began singing and darting after insects that rose with the sun. The world came alive as a small esk named Aeruza watched quietly on. This was one of her favorite times of day and she made sure to never miss it. She always took quiet vigil right before dawn to watch her small meadow wake around her. She loved each bird, snake, turtle, and insect as if they were her own kin. She loved the grasses, flowers, and occasional tree as well. She even loved her burnt up little stump that she curr
