IC: Helios (Old Fusa Path)
Helios continued down the small earth path towards Ga-Koro. His disk launcher dangling slightly by his hip, his backpack bouncing lightly on his back, and his feet tapping a light rhythm as he walked.
You got your
Toe caps reinforced with steel
Hard-wearing sole and heel
Make those tired feet feel like new
Ga-Koro was growing slowly larger in the distance, as the sound of the wind whistling through the grass caught Helios ear, further fueling his merry prancing down the downtrodden path.
A wide grin was plastered across his Miru, shining brightly in the morning sun, the sunlight carrying a hue of joyous gold across the landscape, bringing to light all the things worth smiling about: like the shores, the Ghekula, and the soothing breeze.
“I bet there’ll be plenty to see in Ga-Koro. Maybe some sights. I don’t need to be a hero unless I have to” Helios reasoned, remembering Colx’s advice, as he took note of some Nui Rama streaking across the sky above him, first one, then another, and then one more.
“Maybe I ought to get my boots shined, even” he thought as he cast a glance at them. They had gotten a little dirty, that would need to be remedied. Some shine, some polish and a little scrubbing, good as new for sure.
The Ba-Toa noticed a nearby Brakas monkey chasing a Cliff Bug, and gave the critter a slight boost with his powers to help it hop away from the primate with massive leaps. He smiled a little at the Brakas’ mixed look of confusion and anger, before he continued on towards Ga-Koro, taking delight in his minor deed, with greater yet to come.
If you could use a change of pace
And be excused from the rat race
Just take a look at what’s on view
Helios was nevertheless feeling very happy with the state of things, and let it be known through his springful steps and swinging arms following his self-made beat, accompanied by the nondescript noises that his equipment and attire made as they flapped and dangled around. Those who happened to notice him would most likely conclude that this was indeed a very cheerful and happy person.
At the moment Helios was definitely feeling that. Melna might have taken this sort of euphoria a little less in stride, hugging random strangers where she found them, while Colx would be more willing to let slip one of his deep chuckles.
He was nearing the end of the path, slowly approaching the final stretch leading into Ga-Koro. He noticed some remains of camping on the shore nearby, even an empty hammock strung up between two palms. Helios most certainly didn’t need any sleep at the moment, oh no. What he needed was something to direct his energy towards, like maybe a thief or perhaps something a bit more adventurous, or constructive, for that matter, he was flexible.
He finally arrived at the gate to Ga-Koro, the guards letting him in without any major trouble, and began his trek across the bridge to the floating village out on the water. The bridge wobbled a little back and forth, giving a slight feeling of unease to Helios traversal, but only slight; he couldn’t swim but easily lift himself up if he had to.
The sunlight broken into a thousand shimmers across the water’s surface was certainly a sight to behold.
“I’ll bet Melna would like this place a lot” Helios thought, thinking to his energetic, optimistic and… err… “attractive” friend. It had certainly been quite a while.
Now I wish you sunny skies
And happiness wherever you may go
But you’ve got to realize
There’ll be wind
There’ll be rain
And occasional snow
Helios did a little twirl as his happiness overtook him momentarily
You’re gonna want to smile in them
If you’re gonna walk a mile in them
There’ll be times when
You’ll be blue
Helios dodged a sudden splash of water from a mischievous Ruki.
To laugh at rainy days and then
Make your getaways in them
You’re gonna need
You’re gonna need
You’re gonna need
A Quality Shoe
And finally there
Helios had arrived in Ga-Koro, and couldn’t be more stoked about it. First, he would take a look around and see if he could spot any friendly or familiar faces. Then attempt to stop by the Akiri’s office and see if she had anything he could do. The sky was the limit, and Helios was getting there fast, with a grand purpose and abilities to match.
But first; these boots still needed a good polishing.
OOC: Helios is open for interaction in Ga-Koro.
