Chili Pepper Climbs Korrin's Tower, and then The Lookout
[Thread PL: 17,773]
Chili rested his paws on his hips and leaned back. His eyes taking in only so much of the incredibly tall tower. Blinking several times as he tried to see where it ended, only landing him on his rear as he finally lost his balance. A whistle escaped his muzzle as even flat on his back he couldn't see the top. "Those village people were right, this thing is enormous" jumping back onto his feet the dog said "So people of great power and good hearts climb this thing."
Walking around it's base he looked it up and down, trying to imagine it's height. "I could fly... but they said it's like a challenge. So flying is like cheating." Chili crosses his arms "Then I'll just have to climb it and see what's at the top!" With that the pup leaped up as high as he could, his feet launching him off the grassy mound and into the breezy air and above the trees.
He lands onto the side of this carved stone cylinder and clamped his arms and legs into it with a thud, his body slipping down just a bit. "Ohohoh It's a little hard to hold onto" panicking he opens his maw and bit into it's side trying to keep traction. Eyes darting up as there was still nothing to be seen. Reaching a paw up and grabbing further up, trying to yank himself up higher his legs slipped away from the smooth sides, Chili almost letting go completely.
"Well I'm glad I can fly, or I'd probably fall from this height and... break something" the Zoan mused as he clamped his legs onto the stone curve. Once again trying to move further up, but with the surface being as smooth and round making distance would be trouble. "Gotta be another way to do this." Chili said as an idea popped into his head. Reeling one of his arms back the young dog slammed it into the side of the carved pillar, his hand pure blade, sunk into stony flesh ever so much. Letting go from all other places his body swung down under his arm and around to the other side. His other paw shot out and sunk into the tower, it also sharp and axe like.
Chili grinned wide as he swung around the pole of stone his momentum helping him spiral up rather quickly and his transformation powers giving him a much better grip. Eventually the pup would reach the tippy top of the tower. An oblong round room sat at the peak. Climbing over one of the railings he puffed as he caught his breath. His body a bit sore from having to climb, though made easier by his abilities, a very long distance. His body slumped on the floor, his eyes looked around. This little hideaway seemed to be empty however, void of life. Nothing was here, which made Chili frown. "Well this doesn't look like somewhere powerful people go. I mean it's just a room!" Hopping to his feet and flung the top half of his body over a railing and waggled his arms in the air "what a waste of time!" he growled.
He looked down at the ground below, the wind was light up here but strong enough to just slip his hat from his head. Chili leaped out further and grabbed it from the air before it got far however, having had it happen far too many times. But that's when his eye caught the sight of something even higher into the sky. Round and painted in several different colors, and enormous. "...Okay that might be it" mumbled the dog as he flipped himself over and grabbed the edge of the roof. Pulling himself up on top of this onion like shelter, he looked around for the connection to that platform up above. But there was nothing.
"Wait a minute! It's floating?!" he tapped his foot against the top of the tower and his tail wagged. He was so full of sass now. "Well if it's going to cheat by flying then so am I!" he exclaimed.
Chili lept up off the top of the tower and with an amateurs grace flew up into the blue sky and at structure. He flew up to it's base and spotted the metal ladder sewn into the side, and leaped onto it. He climbed the rest of the way up the curved side until he reached the flat tile landmass of The Lookout.
"Woo! Made it!" he shouted meekly as he flopped over, a little worn out.
