Soon after, Ray was strolling down the street with the book folded open in his hand. He took a bite from the fruit beforenusing his pinky to flip to the starting page. He smiled lightly as he began to slip into the world that lay on these pages. Within moments he was completely absorbed in the story, lost in a world of violent pirates and valiant knights, scheming nobles and beautiful princesses. This was the reason he adored reading, it only took a few minutes to quickly be thrown into a world created by the author.
Before long, Ray found himself at the edge of the city, nearing the forest more with each step. Once his foot landed in the soft green grass he looked up. A smirk curled on his face as he stared up at a tree that stood proudly before him. "Well hello there." He greeted the tree calmly as he quickly approached. He placed a hand on the tree and ran it up the trunk before beginning to climb his way up to the lowest branch. He leaned back against the trunk and used the branch as a seat as he relaxed and re opened his book. Instantly he was back in the castle, observing the hidden plots of the nobles and how they planned to over throw the monarchy, it was an interesting enough story, though he could surelyndo better.
