GET TO KNOW MY FAIRY ISLAND
Before I discovered your universe, I lived happily on my tiny little island called Perisland, the land of us peris (fairies). My island is unlike other islands that you may know. Where I live, in the East, there is the jungle. Going to the West, the land and climate become less wild and humid until a desert landscape starts to form in front of you. There are mountains and valleys and basically every type of landscape you can imagine. So is the flora and fauna. We have all kinds of beautiful creatures, plants and fruits. There is much to discover. However, as an island has a limited size, at some point you know everything. After living at such a tiny piece of land for a long time, you start to wonder if there is something else out there.
Surrounded by the water, I was always wondering whether I can find another place where there are either more fairies or maybe other creatures and what their life was like. I talked to my peri friends about it, but they told me I’m crazy, that there cannot be anything else out there and that if there is that it’ll be dangerous and that I should not leave the island. Wondering whether some of them knew about the existence of another world, I never let go of the feeling that there is something out there. Everyday life gets boring sometimes when you know each and every plant, eat the same fruits and vegs and do the same stuff all over. Oh wait. You’ve no idea what such a day might look like right?
Usually, my day starts with waking up by the sunrise, drinking some pearls of dew and watching the beautiful sky colors developing to a highly saturated blue. Then, I start collecting some breakfast berries on my way through the jungle. I watch the awakening of the plants and animals as I pass them on my way to the waterfalls to get a quick shower. I love mornings the most as they have this special calmness to them, which clears your mind from all negativities and lets you focus on the upcoming day.
Daytime is usually busy, you are doing what you do and either time passes so fast you cannot believe when the sun starts to set or sometimes it seems to take ages until the day finally comes to an end. It is important to not waste your daytime and stay focused, so you can reach your goals and enjoy your evenings being satisfied with the work done. Don’t forget to get fueled with nutritious food for lunch to keep your body and brains working properly the whole day! In the jungle, we usually just grab things along our way as there are so many great sources of energy. However, coming to your world, I was overwhelmed with your food habits and opportunities.
Who doesn’t love the magic of sunsets? Or are you one of those thinking they’re too cliché? In our world, we always watch the sun set and enjoy seeing the colors of the sky changing by the minute. We come together and enjoy this spectacle until the sun sinks into the ocean. After the sun has set, we enjoy dinner together. Everyone gathers together what they have found throughout the day and we see how we can combine it and make delicious meals out of it. Dealing with your world, I have to mention that we do not waste anything, but we make use of every part of every fruit or plant. If you cannot eat it, you can use it for other purposes. We always appreciate what nature has to offer and treat each detail of it with respect. This way, we gain the greatest benefits of everything.
As I tell how my days pass by, I notice how different that must seem to you. However, my little everyday life is much the same every day. Pretty dreary, right? That’s why I had the urge to change something…
