Out of My Imagination
There is a boy in the classroom. His name is Nan. He is a student. He is a crazy but confident boy. This day, he is in the classroom. He has a dream: an opened door. Suddenly, he wakes up. It is dark all around him. He sees a door, a really big door. The door has a beautiful carving. Then, the door gently opens. He is very excited, so he walks through the door.
He sees a grass land after he walks through the door. He has never been there because in his city, there are no rivers nor forests nor mountains. But there are all those things in this world.
Suddenly, he sees a small city, and he goes there. This small town has a market, a restaurant, and a weapon shop. He asks someone, “Do you know where this is?” “What?” someone answers, “This is Nor Town. Don’t you know?” Nan replies, “Sorry, I don’t know.” That person says, “It’s okay. My name is Ned. What’s yours?” Nan says, “My name is Nan.”
Then Ned leads Nan around the city and tells him about the town. Suddenly, Nan asks, “ Mr. Ned, why are all the people nervous and worried?” Ned answers, “Nor is constantly at war, and we have to look for the Peace Sword to stop the war.” Nan listens to Ned’s story. He wants to help them, so he asks, “Oh, Mr. Ned, do you know where the Peace Sword is?” “I remember,” starts Ned, “it being in the Dragon’s Cave on Pendoor Island. But many people has dies trying to look for it.” Nan thinks for some time, then says, “I think… I can go look for the Peace Sword.” “No!’ cries Ned, “It is too dangerous!” But Nan says to him, “I want to go. I am willing to go. I wish I could help you!” “But…” starts Ned, he was very worried. Nan said, “Don’t worry, I will come back.”
Ned finally says okay, and decides to lead Nan to visit the headman and tells him that Nan wants to look for the Peace Sword. The headman hears what Ned says and is very happy, but he is worried, too. “I believe you will surely come back. Go ahead!” Then, Nan takes with him everyone’s expectation and head off. Ned sees him off and thinks to himself, “He is just a fourteen-year-old boy. This task is way too heavy for him to carry, isn’t it?”
Nan begins to travel. He has just gotten to this world and he can learn about everything here. In the morning, he usually eats breakfast by the river, or talks to animals. He often goes hunting in the forest in the afternoon. In the evening, he always sings a song or sleeps near a campfire. He sometimes learns the language of this world, too.
One day, Nan comes to a small village. The village head sees Nan coming and says welcome to him. “I am the head of this village” the head says, “this is my daughter, her name is Violet.” My name is Nan. I am looking for the Peace Sword. I walked pass here and was wondering if I could spend one night here.” “No problem,” the village head replies and turns to his daughter, “Violet, take Nan to the room by the river. Good night, Nan.” “Thank you” Nan says.
Nan and Violet walk on the road. Both of them are silent, but Violet occasionally looks at Nan. Sometimes, she thinks to herself, “He is a good man, and handsome, too. I don’t believe is only fifteen years old.” “Are you okay?” Nan asks her. “Y…yes! This is your room. G…good night!” she says shyly.
