Chapter 95: Nature will totally overtake human infrastructure in almost no time at all if you let it. Just take a look at the mini trees growing through my asphalt driveway.
…It really is eerie.
When we reached the former tree elf “city”, it feels like a ghost town.
Not that it feels like it’s absolutely abandoned. It almost feels like there’s a presence here.
But it’s not a presence strong enough to be from anything living.
So yeah, like a town full of ghosts.
Needless to say, this tree city didn’t look like what Hibiki-chan was expecting.
There was nothing nailed or built onto or into the trees.
Thick, woody vines ran, almost naturally unnatural, around the base of the trees, winding up as a ramp.
Boughs were lowered, as if steps that ran between tree to tree, and branches seemed to be knit together to make platforms.
Not like the trees were forced into their situations, but like they just happened to grow there… and yet, even though it looks so organic, it also looks orderly.
At least, you can tell it had at one point. (more…)
