- Mushroom Rock Road. It was a pain to traverse it without a Chocobo, but it wasn't as though they had enough gil for one of those. And Cloud wasn't particularly thrilled about the journey ahead as they made it to the edge of Macalania Woods, especially since there were quite a few people milling around the south end of the road when they arrived.
"Keep your hood up," came his quiet instructions to Yuna, taking her with surprising gentleness by the arm to lead her through the clusters of people chatting away near the chocobo enclosure. For a moment, he considered 'borrowing' one of the massive birds, but they didn't need to call any unnecessary attention to themselves.
Although, come to think of it, his spiky blonde hair and glowing eyes were a dead giveaway as well, and he could only hope that word hadn't traveled as far as Mushroom Rock just yet.
Rummaging around in one of his pockets, he did manage to find some spare change...enough to wrangle a pair of dark black sunglasses from one of the merchants milling around the entrance to the road and slipping them over his eyes to cover the glow. He'd always been ashamed of the glow, anyway. It made him look like a monster, and people could always more about his past than he was comfortable with just by looking at the glow in his mako-infused eyes. He detested the kinds of looks he got because of it.
The crowds thinned out as they made their way away from the entrance to Mushroom Rock Road and further down the beaten path. Admittedly, the scenery was breath-taking on all sides, and he was glad, at least, that Yuna could enjoy looking at all of it as they passed by. He told her to stay close to him again, as they would more than likely run into fiends without a Chocobo to ride. Not to mention that certain parts of the road were unguarded by railings and had high, dangerous drop-offs.
"...Look," he murmured after a while, absently putting his arm around Yuna's shoulders to guide her to the edge and make sure her balance was secure before gesturing for her to gaze down at the fields below. "This is where they breed a lot of the wild Chocobos that end up gettin' sold all over Spira."
It was a beautiful sight - rolling hills, lush greenery, and all kinds of exotic plants...and plenty of Chocobos, of course, all of them in a variety of different colors just like the plantlife surrounding them.
"See?" Cloud murmured gently, squeezing her shoulders a little as he held onto them close to his body to make sure she didn't fall. "A lot of the military chocobos in Bevelle come from here."
((I probably have all the locations completely wrong. Mushroom Rock Road is probably nowhere near Macalania Woods, and Macalania is probably nowhere near Bevelle. But...whatever. It's somewhere to go))
