Blurb

Ten-year-old Ro accidentally crosses into a world that is slowly being destroyed by Magdolia, the source of all evil. However, to him, Magodlia is his mother and he will stop at nothing to find her. He goes on a journey through the demolished world and begins finding out the truth about his existence, his mother and Lesser Esse. Inspired by Over The Garden Wall.

Chapter 1

A smile flew across the boy’s face when he covered his eyes with his forearm. His body, leaned against the vibrant oak trunk. “Twenty!” He counted with a giggle in his voice. Several small feet scattered away from the boy and into the woods. “Nineteen!” He shouted, softly kicking the grass up. Slowly, he counted down from nineteen and started to get anxious when he came upon the tens, nines, eights, sevens, sixs, fives, fours, threes, twos, ones. His body flipped around and his eyes went hunting. “Ready or not here I come!” He dashed forward, glancing behind each oak tree that stood tall.

“Where are you~?” He sang, biting down on his lip. Giggles rang in the air. His legs, searched for laughter like a dog but instead lead him deeper into the forest.

“Where could they have gone?” He questioned himself, pondering if they left him. He stopped, however, when he landed in front of the cave.

Just as he was about to listen and turn back around, a shadow glided itself in the corner of his eyes. His lips, peeled back, revealing teeth.

“There you are!” He shouted, lunging into the cave. Laughter ensued as he chased after the shadow, down into the cave.

“You’re never supposed to go in there.” His dads’ voice echoed in the back of his head.

“Why Dad?”

“Because it’s dangerous, that’s why!”

His stopped himself at the edge of the cave. Rocks, cascaded down the cliff into the darky unknown. He panted, taking a step back. His eyes raced to examine the gaping hole that stood in front of him. He swallowed, taking another step back. Darkening giggles, echoed, before something shoved his body over the cliff.

“I. F.O.U.N.D. Y.O.U.”

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?
