Trike! Electrike! Electrike zoomed briskly across the sandy trail. Mini sand dusts formed behind him before settling again. Behind Rey, Poochyena dashed to catch up.
"Don't go too far Rey and Neko!" Vernon was pacing himself with a light jog, while Tepig was urging him on comfortably in his backpack. Snort snort, Tepig positively said. At last, Vernon could see the horizon line of the ocean, and slowed down to a walking pace. It only took a few steps to finally reveal the small village near the shore below the hill. Above the village overlooks the Lighthouse. It was the only thing out of place in the perfect image. The sparkling ocean, wingulls flying cozily in the sky, swirling white clouds in a perfect blue sky, humble errands being done in the small village, then the lighthouse. Moss covered its bottom half, and rust covered the top. It was situated in a cliff, which Vernon assumed would've been a great sight during a sunset back when the Lighthouse was working. Regardless, Vernon sprinted downhill to catch up to Rey and Neko, who were picking up speed towards the village.
The village was old and rural. Vernon loved the peaceful aura of the place. Villagers greeted him and pet Neko and Rey as they walked by, even though most of them were in a hurry to do their errands. At the end of the village lies a small cliff, leading to the sandy beach. The cliff wasn't high enough to get someone injured, so Vernon hopped down towards the beach. Tepig hopped off his backpack to enjoy the sand and the sun. Finally, Vernon situated himself in the sand and placed his backpack next to him. He thought about the Lighthouse, and whatever happened to it. You think people in the village might know? Vernon stands up to find out.
"Guys, stay in the beach for now, I'll be right back." Vernon signaled a Stay hand gesture to them, which made all three stare at him blankly. Then when he turned around and walked back to the village, the three played again.
