Kiwatu and the Land of Giants, Chapter 5Kiwatu and the Land of Giants, Chapter 5 by DeethIrteen
Kiwatu slid around on Swala's tongue. The grass and flowers were pushed onto her teeth as she began to chew. Kiwatu struggled to keep from freaking out at the situation. If he gave himself away, who knows what the giant would do to him? What if she already knew he was in the bowl, and was TRYING to eat him now?!
No. He couldn't panic now! Not after getting this far! He had to continue with his goal.
Kiwatu untied the length of rope form around his waist. After making sure one end was still fastened to him, he sloshed his way to the teeth. As they clacked and stomped before him, Kiwato placed his hands on the bottom row. He used them as a guide towards the back of the throat. When he came to the last molar, Kiwatu tied the other end of the rope around it. He had to move fast, or the teeth would cut right through the rope. Or worse, his arms.
When Kiwatu was almost finished, he felt clumps of chewed-up plants splashing against him. Swala was pushing the food to the back of her throat. Sh

"Y..." Kiwatu tried to repeat her name. "Yg... Ygg..."
"Okay..." Kiwatu muttered. "Yggdo... What... Are... You?"
"I am the creator, and former guardian, of this tower. It's called the Temple of Nguvu. It is the oldest and greatest relic in these land."
"What... Is... Land?"
"Pick up the stone eye and peer into it. You'll see what I'm talking about."
"Okay." Kiwatu placed both hands on the side of the eye. With a grunt, he lifted it up off the pedestal. It weighed far more than he expected; he nearly fell over into the water. Kiwatu repositioned himself and stared into the eye's pupil. Black clouds swirled around within the eye. They slowly parted from the center as Kiwatu focused his vision. A slimmer of light shined through the darkness, revealing a great, expansive landscape.
It were as if Kiwatu looked down upon the world from the heavens above. He saw a great number of biomes, all encircled by a raging sea. Mountains of frost and fire. Grasslands and deserts. Swamps

Kiwatu didn't know how much time passed as he wandered through the dark corridors. It may have been only a minute, or an entire day. But either way, a sense of wonder grew in his belly. Even if he didn't know this place, he was driven to explore it. His vision was limited by the dim torchlight, so he held a hand on the left wall. The voice from before had stopped talking to him, claiming that "she" needed to rest to conserve her energy. But Kiwatu didn't understand what any of that meant.
The corridor was warmer than it was outside. He still had light shivers on his back, but he didn't have to hug himself to stay warm anymore. The burning smell had been replaced by the scent of cobwebs and dust, which dotted the floors and walls. The corridor swerved downwards and to the left. It kept going for what seemed like it looped completely around the tower. Several doors were down the line on both sides, but most of them were either locked tight, or blocked off by rock and rubble.
Whether it w
