I'm Not That Bad, I Swear! (Asher) Dec 18, 2016 8:07:36 GMT

With all of the varied environments of the Digital World, Shibuki Forest wasn't exactly the most common place for Isaac to be. After all, if he needed trees, there were vibrant jungles, misty forests, and even some divine lands for him to explore. In contrast, Shibuki Forest was, well, trees. Isaac had all the access in the world to the fantastical, which made Shibuki Forest lose a little bit of its luster. Heck, it wasn't even a deep, dark, uncharted forest. It was easily accessed from the residential area, and generally curated just enough to help make sure passers-by were safe. If one was looking for adventure, it was probably the wrong place to be.
That said, with all of the stress and excitement being juggled by Isaac lately, the mundane nature of the forest made it the perfect spot the catch some rest. "I swear, I have no clue how I'm pulling this off," he muttered as he leaned against a tree, letting the cool breeze stroke his hair and the chirping of birds be music to his ears. It was all of nature's beauty and serenity, with far less chance of a giant, questionably-sapient bug monster bursting from the treeline to try and eat him. He hadn't usually been this far out into the forest, but that's because he was usually at school or with Elliot on most days.
That wasn't the case nowadays. Between his cafe job, schoolwork ramping up even more, holiday shopping, and his own attempts at practicing for the drama club, he had a ton of pressures pulling him in every direction. And that was before even getting into the Digital World! When he started this plan up, he promised he wouldn't let it get the better of him. That was a promise he was still holding tight. However, even he needed a break, no matter how much he insisted it was fine. That was when Shibuki Forest came to mind, and the boy couldn't resist its siren's song.
He wouldn't be here for too long, anyway. He'd just need a little bit of time in nature, away from all the hustle and bustle that had come to rule his life. Maybe just a few minutes, maybe an hour or so. As his eyelids grew heavy and demanded he take a nap, he started to amend that to a few minutes. Surely that wouldn't hurt anyone, right?
Of course, with Isaac's vision starting to grow dark and his ears lulled into a false sense of security by the winter breeze, who knew what could end up sneaking up on him?
