I awaken in the middle of the night. The air was still and quiet. I see a glowing crimson blue butterfly fluttering around the dark room.
Thinking that I am going crazy I rub my eyes and open them again. And it is still fluttering around without a care in the world.
I start to get up very slowly keeping an eye on the butterfly. And it is still fluttering around without a care in the world.
How did it get here? Where did it come from? Why is it in here? Am I still dreaming? The questions were running through my mind like a marathon as I turned on the lamp on my nightstand.
The more I continued to think, the more that uncertainty and anxiety filled my heart. Then the butterfly started to fly around my head like it was trying to get my attention.
Once it got my attention it went towards the door beckoning me to follow. I hesitated for a moment but hen decided that I was going to get to the bottom of this.
So, I got up and threw on my slippers in a hurry and followed it out into the unknown. Not knowing what was in store for me.
After 10 minutes of following the butterfly we end up outside of the entrance of a forest. The trees were looming over us like giants and the entrance is a black hole looking like it will swallow us without a second thought. The air felt stagnant like time had stopped.
Uncertainty filled my heart once more. I ask myself "why am I doing this?" “I should go back home and forget about this.” But my feet and mind won't let me turn back.
The butterfly hovers by the entrance waiting for me to come along. I have no choice but to move forward and figure out what this is about.
I finally walk through the black gaping entrance with my guide in tow. Readying myself for whatever is to befall me.
The butterfly led me to the middle of the forest And what awaited me was a medium sized pond.
There were varies stones going around the shape of the pond, water lilies floating on the surface, and fish dancing around in the water. The pond was clear like a crystal. It reflected the night sky and glow of the moon so beautifully.
I was so entranced by all of this and didn't notice that my legs were moving me closer and closer to the pond on their own. And before I knew it I was on the ground looking at my reflection.
I look up to see the butterfly over the pond. Before I knew it the butterfly started to glow and in unison so did the pond. It got so bright that it blinded me.
I start to feel myself being pulled into the pond and I start to hear a woman's voice saying "you are the chosen one." As I tried to grab for anything to pull me out. Over and over again...
Until I was fully submerged. The water became calm, and the glow faded away.
My consciousness starts to fade away as well.
And this is how my journey in Sora began.
