Welcome to Rosa Aurora! Every year all the roses de-petal and shoot straight to the sky reaching for the stars. Some believe it is due to the overwhelming environment in which they reside in; city folk are too noisy and bright causing the stars to disappear. Others believe it is because they are fed up with being stuck to the ground so they quit and decided to take to the sky. I’m here to tell you that both are somewhat true.
They take to the sky to see the stars better, they re-petal themselves farther away from the light so they can enjoy the starlight view. They are called moonlight roses and are the rarest to find once they de-petal. Also they are the hardest to capture since they have a mind of their own. If you come across one enjoy the view and don’t disrupt its journey. They wither away too easily.
I tried to capture as much a I could in this acrylic painting to emulate such a wondrous place. The cool wind bustling through your hair and body rising goosebumps. Smell that fresh cut grass followed by rain then roses and a hint of strawberry. Mmm that strawberry air tastes so scrumptious. Phew-Cha-Cha is the sound they make, kind of like the ruffling sound of cheerleader pompoms combined with whistling.
How do you get to Rosa Aurora? You might be wondering. Well first off the tickets there are extremely cheap. It’s insane! For however much you charge yourself to close each eye. It takes two closed eyes to imagine this place. Good luck in your travels! Weather forecast is unknown. Overthinking lightning clouds may damage your transition so don’t think just feel.
Thanks for joining me on this journey to Rosa Aurora! I hope you enjoy your stay and become less stressed.
The buildings are all burning. Their is no one to be found. Massacred all over the ground. How did this happen? Why did this happen? Building cripples and is about to shatter me. *CRASH* It missed!?! Blue eyed beast appears.
“Stare into my eyes, I’ll protect thee.” *Absorbed into eyes* “Replenish thy glass. Tend to thy wounds. Help in this fight. Don’t give up hope.”
I end up in a place where there are beaches and bridges and beds and corn and people. Running around are the children, near the edge one falls. Oh a net. That’s reassuring.
A young man appears to explain everything. “You look lost and confused.” “I’m curious more than anything. The lakes must provide the tears? The sand must be for sleeping? What are the beds for?” “Recuperation.” “This is a lot to take in. How long have you been here?” “I created this place, I’m the one that absorbed you. When danger is at hand I make it a duty to protect as many people as I can.” “Do you know what happened to cause such tyranny?” “Greed.” *Confused look*
“One man discovered the cure to every disease and is now immortal. He destroyed his research so no one could ever be like him. He’s been causing havoc everywhere he goes. Killing those that disobey him. He’s made it a habit to blow up buildings.” “Wait a second, how is that even possible!?! To become immortal.” “I am a protector, a guardian. I no not how he achieved this.”
“YEAH I’M TALKING TO YOU! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE!?!” Yelled a man with no eyes. Yet he sees me somehow *pondering how and walking around him*. “You can see me!?” “HELL YEAH YOU’RE FLOATING AROUND IN MY HOUSE!!! RIGHT THERE!” He points straight at me. “May I ask ho…” “GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!!!” *swings two bats* Broken pieces lay on the ground. He rushes to find another weapon. Knifes, pans, pots…he threw everything at me with a single screech!
Alas none of those items did a thing. This man was red mad. Steaming from the ears and oozing out the mouth. Millions of blue spots start appearing on his face. What are they? They begin to glow bigger and bigger. Blinded by the light. “AAAAAHHHHH!!!” “OOOFF!” He shoves me out the door with me landing on my back. *DOOR SLAMS SHUT!* “Man what was that!?!” This species shouldn’t be able to see. I was simply observing. Why so private? Lets try the x-ray vision to find out. *shoom* “AAAHHBAAAHHHLAAA!!! STOP SPYING ON ME!!!” *ANOTHER BLINDING LIGHT* This is getting freaky! How can he possibly know that I was spying on him!?! “OH NO, CRAP! NO! NO! NONONONO! NNNNOOOO!” *The house disappeared* Now I have to start all over. Back to square one….*teleports*
“Day 31245 Num-nums are able to see. It’s hard to track such a beast with their constant teleporting. They are very private and spiritual beings. Known to rely solely off their mouths to survive. Perhaps with heightened taste you’re able to sense a difference in the area around you!?! He could taste eye sight? That could’ve been a different species of num-num. This one had millions of blue spots? Maybe those were it’s eyes that normally blend in to the skin?”
“Now to find this staff!” This tree staff is the rarest of rarest to find. It can shift into any tree and phase into the ground. Their is only one way to obtain such uberness. Vibrations. Whenever the staff transforms it gives off a high frequency. This is also true whenever it phases into the ground. The power emanating from this staff also affects the trees around it. They become more fluorescent. “How to catch this staff? Do I lay on the ground and wait for a big vibration? Hug the center popular looking tree? OH WAIT!!!” Staff world exists now woo hoo! *teleports*
*Headed toward Staff Central* Big rock guard looks asleep. I walk right by him. CRAP! I’m frozen…I can’t see a thing. *unfrozen* “What are you doing here?” says the wind in multiples. “I’m in search of the all mighty tree staff!” “Which one?” in multiples once again. Is this some sort of test? I yell out “FLOURESCENT!” A blinding light appears in front of me. It looks like a mere tree branch. *picks up the branch and starts swinging* “I can feel the uberness take hold oh yes! I feel the power!” All of a sudden laughter shimmers the air “hahahaha! that’s just a tree branch” face turns red from embarrassment. “I know this isn’t the staff I have a picture.” Smug as smug can be. “WAIT WHAT!?! LIES!!” in multiples. *takes out the picture* “Have a look for yourself!” the tree staff itself appears! “This is my true form how did you take this picture?” “I know a guy.” “Who!?!” “A fellow teleporter like myself.” “I know of no teleporters! How did you take this picture!!” The leaves wither away and the branches get sharper. It almost feels angry. “I can’t help but feel threatened?” “NO ONE MUST KNOW OF MY EXISTANCE! THIS PICTURE BRINGS GREAT EVIL!” *the picture burns* “NO ONE!!!” A blast of splinters shoot out toward me. “Owwie!” Well isn’t this great. False intel once again from my buddy Roger…Lets see how this ends…I try teleporting away it doesn’t work. I try it again and again. Nothing. I try running away. “AAAAAHHH!” The tree staff appears wailing monstrous apples at me. “YOU MUST DIE!” Unleashing it’s deadly spore attack, I end up dying. As I begin to decompose I become one with the ground. The tree staffs vibrations are near. All around I feel its vibrations. “I must know before I disperse your grounded body, why did you come seek me?” my spirit shakenly states, “I wanted you and I to be friends and fight crimes together. I didn’t mean to over step I am sorry.” Spiritual tear rolls down growing the plant above. The vibration disappears. I begin to wallow. “I can’t believe I’m dead.” I feel as though my body is getting deeper and deeper into the ground. It’s getting to the point of heat. “Why haven’t I ascended to heaven? This seems strange!” I try teleporting just to see if I could…Nope. Nothing. I try moving what’s left of my body. *wiggle wiggle* My toes feel free.
I’m back home laying in bed. “That was a weird dream.” *tries to teleport* That’s lame…
