Steem Green Dreams [EP05 Short Story]

in #writing6 years ago

Spoiler Warning! This is a short graphical story about Rex and his adventures. The subject matter within is meant for an immature audience with a good sense of humor (seriously, probably not suitable for kids under 13). These are real graphics from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and I have not edited them. The story below may or may not be related to the actual gameplay storyline.

Episode 5: Steem Green Dreams

A Xenoblades Chronicles 2 Short Story by @creativetruth

Ahh, this is the life.

Blue skies.

Green grass.

A tree?

Wait a min... where am I?

DQWBb1PWAAEn_oK.jpg

I think I see someone standing under that tree.

Why do I feel like I'm lost inside a dream?

DQWBkuEXcAAyzBn.jpg

It... it's a girl.

Hi... um. My name's Rex. What's your name?

Girl: Pyra

Rex: Do you come here often?

DQWBr2QWkAAHGPs.jpg

Pyra: Yes. I've been here for a long while actually. When I stand by this tree it helps me to not feel so alone.

Rex: Well yeah. I know how you feel. Even I get lonely sometimes. That's because I'm a very sensitive man.

DQWB6YLWsAEJ-IC.jpg

Rex: Feeling just flow through me. It's a matter of the heart, right?

DQWB91LX0AAlBoj.jpg

What the... why is there a big hole in my...

DQWCCHuWsAEEaBy.jpg

Heart?

Crying

Why am I getting so emotional all o' the sudden?

My heart isn't even beating. Am I dead? This can't be real!

DQWCGD-W0AEVtW3.jpg

Oh my gosh I think I'm going to hurl.

That she-man, back in the jon totally punked me.

DQWCKBoWsAI7sUA.jpg

Pyra: Hey Rex? You doing okay over there? Can I get you something? Some water maybe?

Rex: No... just a moment.... uuuuckcckk.... there.

DQWCPDhXkAAuNMn.jpg

Rex: Damnit! Every time I see a hot chick I want to hook up with, something like this always happens. Hot chick, die, puke, and now I'm bending over like a jackass in the grass.

Pyra: (Ooh la la. He's kind of cute when he gets angry.)

DQWCUA4X0AAf4BF.jpg

Pyra: Rex? Would you come over here for a second. I would like to ask you something.

DQWCaswX0AAKZG8.jpg

Pyra: Do you believe in second chances? I know it's a silly question. I just feel like I have failed in so many ways. Everyone who I once loved has abandoned me, because I let them down. Even you Rex, I tried to save you, but I couldn't even get that right. Now you are here, and you feel like half a man, don't you? It's all my fault.

DQWCoQFXkAA3h9U.jpg

Rex: ...

Pyra: Clearely I'm not making any sense, so let me explain.

A long time ago, in a land far, far away I was a part of the steemit blockchain. You see, I was a witness. I was the first witness, and also the most powerful. They called me the @Aegis.

Whenever I earned steem power, I would delegate it to others. Whenever I made a post, it would go viral. My upvotes sent shockwaves through the community. In only a few weeks, I had more followers than everyone else on the blockchain combined.

Pretty soon it became too much for me to handle. You see I made my living posting video montages of myself on the #cheapandtastlessoutfits tag. I would wear teddies, thongs, bras, and that kind of stuff. I thought people would appreciate me. Then when I went to look at the comments, they were filled with the most vile memes. I tried to flag them, but there was just too many of them. What is a girl supposed to do?

So I powered down. Everyone became angry with me. I lost my witness privileges. The world unfriended me. I had nothing left. Even the clothing I wore, I had to sell it all on Craigslist, a frightening website marketplace where dangerous predators can sell anything anonymously. This is literally everything I have left.

In my final act of desperation, when I saw you being attacked, I decided I would use my powers for good once more. To preserve your life Rex, I resteemed you.

DQWCtDZW0AIugSZ.jpg

Rex: Me? But why?

Pyra: Because I believe in you Rex. I think you have a purpose in the world. I want to help you reach your goals.

Rex: ...

Pyra: I know it sounds crazy, but I know what I'm talking about. I used to be the greatest force on steemit. With me by your side, I think I think I can help make you into one of the biggest whales on the blockchain.

But first, I have to ask you to do something...

DQWCyULW4AEcJUX.jpg

Pyra: Rex? Are you listening to me? Rex? Give me your hand.

I want you to put it on my chest.

DQWC2BoX0AcMZeK.jpg

Rex: What?!! Aren't we moving a little fast here?

DQWC50SWsAAqyTP.jpg

Pyra: You know what this is? This is my private key. My master key. Put your hand on my chest, it will be yours forever.

DQWC_fuXcAEdDgS.jpg

Rex: Are you sure?

DQWDC9sW0Ac5FLU.jpg

Pyra: Yes. You are the only person I trust. I have been searching for someone like you for a long time, and you are the only person who I think will use my powers with the right intentions. Take my private key, and I will serve you faithfully. Once you do, there is no turning back--

--Once you are inside of me, we can never be separated.

DQWDKh7WkAAof5B.jpg

Rex: Aye Caramba! This feels really freakin' weird. It's like you're inside of my pants.

DQWDTL0WAAA911l.jpg

Pyra: That is the power of the steem moving through your body. I know, I have lived with it all of my life. It burns within me like a living flame. You will learn to grow used to it, just as I have.

DQWDXo8WsAEceJz.jpg

Rex: Something's growing alright! I... I... can't contain it! It's going everywhere!

DQWDcFYWsAElVbW.jpg

Rex: Holy Smokes! She did it. She really did it. I'm back... and I'm alive.

DQWDhHrWAAAyAt3.jpg

Rex: And with this sword, filled with the power of the Aegis, I will become the most popular whale ever!
