THE PROTECTION TATTOO I never really thought of getting a tattoo. Gramps had tons, he said they were companions to help you in times of trouble. Brother got himself one a while ago, a few followed after and I was supposed to get one in my coming of age. However, I was a coward then and hated the idea of experiencing pain.
On my adventure, I became a little bolder everyday and fate has led me to meet Shizuka Mura, the keeper of secrets and great power. It was kind of a strange experience, there were no exchange of words yet the silence between us felt ever so calming. Mura prepared his tools and I felt the smoothness of the needle against my skin, power surged into every stroke etched onto my arm. Mura took a long look and set his tool down, “Perception will be your first. I am giving you a sight only present to the mind. Perception pries, protecting you from evil intentions and revealing great fears of enemies.” I was taken aback, that was quite a big gift for a newbie such as myself. “The compass will take you home. The stars be your guide and a void will protect you in times of need. Use them well.” Mura did not elaborate further, we sat by the fire and exchanged tales.The next day we bid farewell. However, he did mention that we will meet again soon and I continue on my journey.

I AM SICK

I AM SICK & DOWN. Don’t see the weird sisters anywhere :/

Dream Machine Version XIII
I walked through the fog and was guided to a machine. It read XIII. The most updated version of the dream machine. A machine that was able to grant one of my dreams. I waited patiently as it generated a guarantee stone. The stone will grant my wish and at the same time proved I have been to the City of Morpheus. I had recently found out it rarely receives explorers. Time to set foot and move on!

The gate was full of emeralds, pearls, gold and marble. I looked up and 2 eyes stared down at me as if I was being judged. The Sun in the middle shone brightly. I waited for my verdict. The grills slid aside and a door appeared, it seems I qualify. In I went, into Morpheus, the city of dreams.
