Before she approached the narrowing trail, the exploring Hawaiian had noticed lush clusters of trees adorn her surroundings. Tiny animals peered out behind a good number of them only, adding to the exotic flavor of this strange, foreign land. Her senses were captivated, despite the many months of havoc that had ensued previously, by the beauty of it all. The curious islander wasn't a natural explorer by heart and moved cautiously forward, to where so she could avoid the more questionable creatures of this park. She wasn't ready to catch rabies.
When she had carried on her careful wandering, a turning point she had found, tempted her to take the twisting path. She gazed down at her little map. This was ridiculous. She was infinitely lost, and what was worst was, well, she didn't exactly have the best tracking skills in the world. She was an island girl, why would she bother with such abilities?
Maybe, she idly thought as she looked at the map in her hand, maybe with time, she would get eaten, be made a plump, delicious, nutritionally-dense dinner for some hungry koala - even though they were vegetarians.
Nani scared herself with the thought and jumped, slightly. She pressed a hand to her chest, rolled her eyes, and breathed out a tense sigh. Her imagination was on the run again. It was amusing, how she labeled herself as being "normal," when in fact, she wasn't? She sat in defeat. The boulder was uncomfortable to sit on - but better the rock than the floor, right?
Her eyes turned from the page to the source of a quiet shelter nearby. She looked like she had discovered a million bucks with just the sight. The moon from the thatched roof bathed her in a silvery light and illuminated her voluminous hair capturing a modest sort of radiance. Perhaps she wasn't extraordinarily beautiful like so many, but her creamy dark skin looked soft, warm and her brown eyes seemed to sparkle with curiosity and wonder as she dared to venture onward.
"Least I won't have to worry about man-eating koalas," she muttered, silently praying a gentle thanks. "Or rabies..."
She noticed something emerge from the woods and grabbed her branch, not taking even a second to evaluate the stranger.
"AHHHH! KOMODO DRAGON!" she screamed.
