Rayman: Promises to the North 5Rayman: Promises to the NorthChapter 5: A Promisingly Bright Morning...-----Rayman awoke slowly to the warmth of the sun shining down on his nose. The creature let out a quiet sigh and yawned, turning onto his side and opening his dark eyes.His eyes almost bulged out of his skull when he caught a whiff of a delicious aroma in the air. He could hear small footsteps going around the room until they came to a halt next to his bed.He felt a gentle tap on the hand before turning to see who had done it. Immediately, he was met with a pair of large brown eyes and long, furry ears." Good morning!" Illiad exclaimed, a bright smile on her little face." It's a good thing that you woke up, cuz' the Teensie guy just brought breakfast, and I set the table for us," she said happily, walking over to the tiny, set table.Almost immediately, the Guardian shot up out of bed. He was feeling absolutely starved. After all, it would be the first time that he would be able to eat in the last thr
Rayman: Promises to the North 4Rayman: Promises to the NorthChapter 4: A Night`s Peaceful Lull...-----As the two beings walked for just a few minutes more, they came to a small, comfortable looking Inn. It was just a simple cottage; probably fit to house two or three guests at once.The twin moons` light shone down against Rayman`s bouncy hair as he began to open the door to the tiny house. Once it clicked open, he simply stepped inside, Illiad following close behind.Rayman kept a pleasant smile on his face as he stepped up to a small counter. Behind it was Teensie sitting in an office chair." Hey, do you have any rooms left for tonight?" Rayman asked, fiddling with a pen on the desk in front of him." You`re lucky! We`ve got one left," The Teensie said, smiling heartily." Oh, good," Rayman said, beginning to fuss with the small, hidden pockets in his sweatshirt, digging for his money.Illiad glanced around curiously. The house was beautiful, and very homey; exactly what Rayman had explained it would be like.
Rayman: Promises to the North 3Rayman: Promises to the NorthChapter 3: Small Lights on the Way...---As Illiad walked a few feet behind the limbless Hero of Light, her face sustained a deep sadness; a sadness that only such a young child could show. She kept wiping at her eyes every now and then, releasing a quiet sniff as well.Rayman glanced back at the little girl every few minutes. It was almost like he could feel the worry radiating off of the small animal.He sighed and glanced up at the sky. It looked like the sun would be setting in less then three hours. Well...so much for covering much ground today. I must`ve slept all through the day.Rayman glanced back at Illiad once again, a bright smile forming over his face. He was trying to think of something to pick up the child`s gloomy mood." Hey," Rayman started, a small chuckle escaping his lips. " How loud was I snoring when I was asleep?"Illiad glanced up at him for just a moment, her large eyes taking on a slightly lighter tone. Rayman smiled eve
Rayman: Promises to the North 2Rayman: Promises to the NorthChapter 2: And so the Twisting Journey Begins...----Rayman smiled at the tiny creature, a gentle expression sustained onto his face at that very moment. He glanced at Illiad another few moments before his mouth slowly curved into a frown, concern gripping at his being.Rayman lowered his gaze before looking the small animal in the eyes." So, Illiad...why were you being attacked? Do you know?" Rayman asked, keeping his voice as calm as he could; trying his best not to frighten the timid animal.Illiad slowly shook her head, her eyes filled with terror, and what seemed to be an odd form of confusion.Rayman sighed. " Well, I guess that some people just like to cause problems, don`t they?" Rayman murmured.Illiad looked at him quite blankly, but then finally nodded. It seemed that she was deeply thinking about something." I, um...I don`t wanna make you walk back to your home alone. Those nasty little things might still be around, so I`ll walk with you," T
Rayman: Promises to the North 1Rayman: Promises to the NorthChapter 1: A Timid First Meeting...------Rayman seemed to be asleep for longer than he had ever been in his life. His thoughts danced through a soundless, emotionless, black realm for what felt like centuries.He was having an absolutely mute sleep. He was beginning to wonder if he was even still alive.Is...is this what it feels like to be dead? Am I dead now?Those were some of the very few thoughts that Rayman had through his almost entirely restless sleep.Eventually, he felt himself waking up, though he couldn`t open his eyes yet.He had awoke to something smooth against his lips. Something that smelled of the forest floor; green and fresh. Perhaps a large leaf.Rayman was slightly suprised when he felt water beginning to pour into his mouth. He let a tiny sigh escape his lips as he swallowed down every drop of water that made its way onto his tongue. He was horribly parched, and extremely thankful for the water that he was recieving.Eventua
