On an island now after a Flight to find TDawg, CC, Syx and Ray prepare for a night's rest......
After they land, the trio sees that indeed it is TDawg sleeping next to the warm fire. CC remarks, let's get a little shuteye, eh?"
"You guys go ahead. I'm thinkin' I want to do a little Scouting around this place. I'll be overhead keeping an eye on things, so catch some
CC wraps her PolarBear arms around little Ray as they curl up next to the fire and soon drift off to sleep.
Seeing this, Syx changes his mind and decides to walk the area for a while before flyin off. He shifts into human form and walks around the vicinity
and heads off towards the woods. The forest is full of Banana trees, Coconut trees, and others bearing what appear to be fruits of some kind.
Choosing a Blue, wide but flat item, he takes a taste.
"ACKKK!!!" is his response to that! 'Man, I need to tell the others not to eat that one!' He thinks to himself.
All of a sudden, Syx is perplexed as he notices his eyesight beginning to blur. Then he watches in amazement as he seems to be floating up in the
air! NO, it is not Him rising, it must be His Soul/Spirit! He can see himself standing on the forest floor as he watches his body get further and
further away! He continues to drift high above the area and can now see the others by the fire, and the island becoming smaller by the second!
'Fantastic! How Wonderous this is!!' Syx thinks.
'Welcome Syx!' He hears in an eerie but familiar voice.
Looking around quickly, and perplexed, Syx can finally see a Human form getting closer to him in the air.
'FOSS!!!??? WTF Man!? What is going on!?'
Foss replies, 'Syx! So good to see You! It's about time you found this Plane. I have been coming here for a long time hoping some day one of You
guys would show up. What technique did you use?'
'Umm, I bit into a Blue Fruit down there.' Syx said as he pointed to the island.
'Saphire, or Faded?' Foss asked.
'Well, umm, uh, Saphire I think.' Syx stammered.
'Good. The Faded would make you terribly sick in a few hours. The other will not harm you at all.'
'Really?! I about chucked up what I DID Try!"
Laughing, Foss replied, 'Yes, it has a bad taste at first, but have you noticed that goes away very quickly?'
'Come to think of it, I cannot taste it anymore. Enough of that, what is going on!!?'
'This is The Astral Plane. Souls travel this place, some at will, others after meditations of sorts, or like you, after eating that Fruit! There are
many different realms in The Astral.'
'Is that how we all ended up at The Shed?'
'I believe so Syx. Souls of different types tend to attract one another so that is why our group has as many members as there are! I'm sure others
will join us in our adventures as time passes. That's what makes The Shed so special.'
