This is the first part to my story collection, The birth of a Hero.
The air was hung thick with a mixture of debris, faeces and a gas that was strong enough to take the lives of any men. Trees sprang from the ground thin and twisted but harder than any rock; the higher reaches of trees opened up like fireworks in the night sky. The leaves were wide-spread, stopping the sun-light from penetrating the strange land below. The grass that lay upon the ground grew long and was a dark purple colour. The grass hid the murky blue water that filled the land from corner to corner. Below the surface of the water lay a rare creature, which could swim below water, walk on land and soar high above the clouds.
