His softly crunching steps grew ever more grainy as the land beneath his feet made the transformation from gravelled grass to plain sand and as he stopped to think, Yougi realised that he had left the valley mouth and had already taken his first steps into the Desert of Illusion. With a name sounding so grand and so many rumours surrounding it, he wasn't sure what to expect, what he'd find or even what to look for. But deep down he knew if something was important he'd be sure to notice it, eventually.
Taking in a deep breathe to set of on, he suddenly thought that Growlithe might want to come out and enjoy such a sight and he'd be sure to enjoy the heat. 'But would I really want to add a fire type into the already sweltering heat?' Yougi pondered, realising that the strong sunlight on the arid horizon was already burning at his skin. 'Better not,' Yougi thought to himself again, 'it'll save him some walking and I won't have to deal with any additional heat.'
With his thoughts cleared, he took his first steps into the journey that awaited him.
