As you suck in a deep gasp of air, you glance to me with a breathless smile. "This is... amazing..." you tell me, hardly able to take your eyes off the wonderful little haven. The purple fog faded away into blue sky directly over your head, letting warm rays of sunshine bathe the lush, green grasses. Birds sang cheerfully from all around, and flowered mosses covered everything in sight, including buildings. The center piece of the cottage themed town seemed to be a stream, so shimmering and clean that you longed to take a sip. Your mouth still open, you carefully cross over to the stream, dropping to your knees to stare in total quiet. Phea and Eloutina come trotting up next to you, one on each side, staring into the water as if the scene were perfectly normal. I sit down at your side as well, running my finger across the water's surface as I wait for you to ask. And then you do. "What is this place?"
"Well," I start, taking a deep breath. "It's believed, in town lore, that this island has been around since the Cretacious period, maybe even further back. The Fasheea have been here at least that long." You nod, still focused on the stream. "Though the town has a very different story, having been founded by a few good hearted individuals many years ago. You see, it has a magical element, of sorts..." I point to the sky, your gaze following. "We are in another realm, as is demonstrated by our multiple moons." You pinch your eyebrows together, just now noticing the 5 different moons in the sky. " This place is only, and I do mean only, accessible to humans by the Fasheea's consent. They are the key in and out of Kaina, as it's called. You must befriend one to come here at will." You stay still, listening intently to every word.
"Of course there are other animals in Kaina besides the Fasheea, but none so are as magical." Phea purrs to me, lovingly rubbing his face down my side. I pet him softly on the head as I continue. "They are revered in this town as godly, and are by far the most intelligent. They know if you're a good person with one look." I pause, looking directly into my Fasheea's blue gaze. "It is said that their eyes can see into your soul. That's how they've survived as long as they have. Humans would have destroyed them long ago if not for such ability." Your eyes widen at the thought, and they quickly turn to Eloutina. So dainty, so mild..."But why? Why would anybody want to hurt them?" you ask, angry tears now forming in your eyes.
I sigh, shaking my head. "Most humans are afraid of Fasheea, being so different from all other animals. And you know how humans tend to act toward something that's different..." I roll my eyes, tucking my short, brown hair behind my ears. "They've hid in this relm ever since humans invented the boat, becoming as fearful of us as we are of them. When a stray human or two would discover the island, all the animals would flee to Kaina. The land would become nothing but a desolate waistland to outsiders, too many useless trees for lumber and nothing but sour fruits and insects for consumption." You nod in relief, glad that the wonderful creatures had some sort of protection.
I look back to the sky, smiling with a long kept fascination. "The fog also plays a huge roll in such seclusion. You know the purple cloud that the island is named for?" You nod. "It is very special, in that the Fasheea can control it. When they combine their phsycic energy, the fog will refract the light, causing the island to vanish from view. Infact, that's why it's purple when visible, since Fasheea are quite fond of the color. The normal fog, which you probably also came across, deters anybody from coming this way. Nobody in their right mind would sail nose first into a thick fog. Especially when they could go around it."
