Nico’s ‘Book of Life’ story opening

Swiftly, the speedy, venomous snake bit Maria. “Help!” she fell on a clear spot with despair and her vision faded out. Where and when will she come back; or… will she?

“Gotcha!” yelled Xibalba. flawlessly celebrating for the forseable future as Manolo will get blamed for it. “What have you done?” blamed the town’s villlagers and soldiers, “I didn’t” paused Manolo, “I swear!” He blew his opportunity to marry Maria, and may never see her again…

As the sky sobbed, Maria was sent away from Manolo, “Why… JUST WHY!” Tears rolled down his cheeks and he kneeled down towards the spot he last saw Maria. Now he started raining with tears as depression started to arrive. “Do you miss Maria…?” questioned an unknown voice… “I do, a lot!” responded Manolo, in a squeaky voice, “But where is she?” Manolo knew in order to see her, he will need to be sacrifised , “Ohohoh…” whispered Xibalba, in alow pitched voice, “Take this!” In an instant, two vipers appeared and bit him! “Uhoh…Maria…” his voice lowered quickly and he fell to the floor, fading away…

As soon as he opened his eyes, he knew he was teleported to a mysterious place he never had been to, he looked around, realising he was a skeleton in the place he got bit, “Welcome!” shouted what looked like a fellow skeleton on a horse, “To the Land of the Remembered! Here there are no rules, just as long as you get remembered by someone! Hop On!” As he jumped on, the man took Manolo down to the jolly, festive place. He soon realised he needed to find Maria, who was apparently here, “One, question,” paused Manolo, “Is Maria Posata here?” he replied “Let’s search!” As the horse galloped around the Land of The Remembered, there was no sign or sight of Maria, “Oh no…” he thought, “She’s not here?!” Manolo felt like dying.
