” ” Speech,
‘ ‘ Thoughts,
As they settled into their chairs at the table, Erick gestured to the array of delicious treats that he had prepared for them. There were handcrafted chocolates, rich coffee, and a variety of snacks and sweets made with natural, energy-filled ingredients.
The ladies couldn’t help but feel their mouths water at the sight and scent of the food before them. They eagerly reached for the treats, savoring the flavors and textures with each bite.
As they ate, Erick explained that all the ingredients were sourced from the natural world. They were not only delicious but also had a host of health benefits. They were a perfect example of the kind of natural power that this new, energized world could provide.
Aisa was the first to speak up, her curiosity and intrigue palpable. “So what you are saying is that you and Aashi are both Naturalists, those people who wield unimaginable powers in their fingertips!”
Hana’s eyes widened in realization as she recalled her father’s warning about the dangers of these powerful individuals. “I heard this word before being mentioned from my father’s mouth,” she admitted. “But I didn’t pay attention to this kind of anomaly. I thought I was just seeing things.”
Kristine, however, remained unfazed. “Why are you guys taking this seriously?” she asked coolly. “Didn’t Erick say that there are people who are responsible for taking care of those astray naturalists who have the intention to harm civilians?”
Erick smiled, pleased with their reactions. “Indeed, there are people who take care of those who stray from the path of naturalism,” he confirmed. “But let’s not dwell on the negatives. After today, you ladies can get these ingredients and consume them on a daily basis. In just a month’s time, you might awaken naturally and become a naturalist.”
The news was met with excitement and gratitude, but Kristine’s enthusiasm got the best of her as she leapt up and sat on Erick’s lap, hugging him tightly. Hana couldn’t help but feel embarrassed as she quickly pulled Kristine back to her chair.
As they continued to chat and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere, the ladies couldn’t help but feel that they had experienced something truly special on Blurr Island. The sense of vitality and purpose they felt was unlike anything they had ever experienced before. They knew that they were only scratching the surface of the island’s secrets and wonders, and they couldn’t wait to uncover more.
As Aashi and Erick bid farewell to their friends, Aashi felt a sense of excitement building within her. She and Erick were about to embark on their first journey together to another world, and the prospect of adventure filled her with a sense of wonder and anticipation.
Together, they gathered the necessary resources for their expedition, carefully selecting each item with precision and care.
As they readied themselves for departure, Erick gave Willow strict instructions to keep a watchful eye on her parents and close friends. Kazue Kazahito and Risa Yamana were entrusted with the reins of industry, with Aashi warning them sternly to not mess up anything in her absence.
Finally, the time had come. Aashi and Erick stood together, gazing intently at the coordinates that would take them to their destination. Willow’s worldly energy swirled around them, enveloping them in a warm glow.
With a flash of light, they were transported to the new world. The air crackled with energy as they emerged into a landscape unlike any they had ever seen. The sky was a deep shade of blue, and the sun beat down on them with a fierce intensity.
Erick and Aashi appeared on a towering peak, overlooking a vast expanse of wilderness. The landscape was stark and desolate, with nothing but dry grass and skeletal trees stretching out as far as the eye could see. A steep slope loomed just beside them, daring them to venture forth and explore.
Aashi’s eyes flickered with wonder and apprehension as she surveyed their surroundings. “Woah, where are we?” she exclaimed, taking in the breathtaking view. “It looks like we can’t confirm here what kind of world we’re in.”
Erick frowned, his senses attuned to the murky energy of this unfamiliar land. “The energy is a little off,” he muttered, his face etched with concern. “I’m sensing a lot of mixed tension here.”
Despite the unsettling vibes, Aashi remained undaunted. “Anyways, we should first find the settlements that inhabit this world,” she said with determination. Erick nodded in agreement, and the two of them clasped hands and shot off into the air in a blur of motion.
As they left the dry canyon behind and entered a plain of green meadow and lively trees, the world around them came to life. The air was thick with the scent of grass and wildflowers, and the sound of chirping birds filled their ears. The grasslands were alive with movement, as small creatures darted in and out of the tall grass, their movements as swift as lightning.
Erick pointed in a certain direction, his eyes scanning the horizon. “Let’s head in that direction,” he said, his voice calm and steady. “We might be able to find what we’re looking for.”
With a shared sense of purpose, Aashi and Erick bounded across the rugged terrain, their movements fluid and graceful as they covered ground with ease. The wind howled past their ears as they surged forward, their eyes fixed on the looming forest ahead. As they drew closer, the scent of damp earth and greenery filled their nostrils, and the rustling of leaves and snapping of twigs grew louder.
As they stepped into the clearing, their eyes were met with a pack of snarling wolves. The animals’ fur bristled with aggression, their fangs bared in a fierce display of territorialism. “Grrrrrrr!” they growled, their eyes locked onto the intruders.
Aashi quickly assessed the situation, noticing a humanoid figure cowering in the shadows of the thick trees. “Hmmm!” Erick murmured, his keen senses already picking up on the presence of the hidden person.
“Looks like these naughty kids need to be taught a lesson first,” he said, his voice low and measured. “Then we can have a discussion with the person behind them.”
Without hesitation, Aashi stepped forward to face the snarling pack. “Leave it to me,” she said, her tone playful and confident. “I won’t beat them to death, just teach them a small painful lesson.”
As she moved closer, the wolves surged forward, their teeth gleaming in the dappled light. “Grrrrrr…!” they growled, their bodies tense and ready to pounce.
