Prompto’s life story in 31 days
Day 27 Flowers Six months have passed. The land flourishes. The earth is rich, fully rested after such a long time of lethargy, and everything grows beautifully. The sun is warm and bright and everyone looks happy, but things aren't that simple for Prompto.
Nights are hard for him. Passing time doesn't help that much, he keeps having the same nightmares. He still wakes up breathless and terrified. It still keeps him up for the rest of the night. He wonders if he'll ever turn that page. Everytime he thinks he's finally over it, the dream comes back in full force, hitting him hard with that reality he'll never truly get used to.
It's all over, now. The Long Night, the war, the battle for the throne. All is in the past and he wishes he could stop dwelling on it but he can't help it. He can't feel the sun on his face or hear grass crunching under his feet without being reminded of what it all cost. What it cost him, what it cost the world, what it cost Noctis. So many sacrifices. All that pain.
But watching the flowers, their heavy, yellow crowned heads that oscillate in the soft breeze, soothes his mending heart and soul. It's beautiful.
