Walking in A Winter Wonderland

December 10, 2016:

Well. Might as well enjoy the scenery while indefinitely stuck on Terra.

Central Park, New York City, New York


NPCs: None.

Mentions: Star Lord, Rocket Raccoon


Mood Music: [*\# None.]

Fade In…

"Just stay here in the park."

That was the last thing Peter Quill told Groot. He promised he'd get Rocket and come right back to find him.

…It had been a few hours since then.

Groot knew the man was an honorable guy, true to his word no matter what kind of trouble he got himself into. There was no doubt he would return with his best friend in tow - or maybe the other way around, considering the fact it was Rocket.

So he waited.

Except waiting around by himself made him feel lonely.

With every passing second, the dull throb of anxiousness quickly turned into boredom.

And the best cure for boredom…was to explore.

Groot figured it was fine to wander about one tiny section of the park. There was no harm in doing so.

Except he didn't realize Central Park was a gigantic space full of trees.

And people.

And holiday cheer.

His rooted feet tromped down the paths both untouched and trodden, carefully waving at passerbys as he loped through the crowds, ogling the decorations that were hung with care. The walking tree admired it all, poking about the scenery as he continued his self-guided tour with growing delight.

Somehow — just somehow — he ran out of park. But he found so many more lights in the city streets now surrounding him.

His eyes lit up.

"…I am Groot!"
