Although the rumors had started a few days prior in Central City and the Rugged North, tales of a strange cloud-riding individual had begun circulating in the Sleepy East. Some of the citizens around Satan City remarked the cloud-rider had even dismounted for a time before riding away. But the rumors had begun buzzing with more credibility than any of the previous fuzzy photos and poorly-taken videos.
Today, that rumored cloud had been sighted in East City traveling across the food-rich town in its earliest hours. After it had been sighted, the rider was even identified: a man wearing a concealing cloaked coat to completely conceal his upper body, yet weirdly a red sash, green pants, and leather footwear.
Sashouka had paid these rumors little to no attention, despite being the center of it. There were tons of strange things around the world and he was rather certain no one cared about him nor his Nimbus. He merely called it Cloud and used it for travel; he had heard and seen others fly without it, so only those who couldn't might bother him. The only ones he had met incapable - or at least didn't seem capable - of flight were far weaker than he was now. Being in disguise had come from merely desiring to hide his face from the occasional flash of a camera. Some said that he, a martial artist, was a 'meme' so long as he owned a cloud for riding. Furthermore, some of the pedestrians tried to ride it only to fall face or butt-first to the ground below. When a few kids started getting ideas, it had forced him to move to a market garden located right alongside a park.
The Nimbus puttered nearby as the occasional kid clambered atop and others fell through, whilst its master sat cross-legged watching the lake in front of him. As far as parks went it was spacious with most of its trees located along the bank opposite of him, only a spruce or two dotting the distance behind him and between all those shopkeepers and supervising parents.
"I suppose all my shopping will need to be done a bit later." His voice was kept low, whispering to himself and trying to ignore all the bustle behind him. "I'll need to get the proper tools and supplies Pumsen listed if we want to repair the warehouse building. Maybe I should buy a bit of farming equipment... everyone back home said if the two of us worked together we could probably get the ground to grow enough to feed ourselves. Then there is Scorpo to deal with, too... wherever that damned scorpion set-off to."
Sashouka ran his thumb across the paper-bound list of things to buy. It had taken him some time but his isolation proved useful for tempering him around the idea of day-to-day goals. But today, he wanted to relax and continue his acclimation back into the rest of the world. Earth was a big place... and he needed to take his time re-adjusting to be around more than mere wildlife.
