The Banes of Atreus: The Avenger

I jolted awake to the sound of pounding on my door. Sitting up, my eyes adjusted to the light, & took in the steam in my left eye, with over-particularising alerts flashing in my neyetifications. I still hadn't figured out how to shape the steam so that it won't go berserk over a bit of fog in my eye when I woke up in the morn. I could, of course, simply take out my Condensed Liquiform Analytical Engine Lenses, but I always forget to do so before bed. I sighed, & rubbed my hand against my eye, clearing it out a bit.copyright protection121PENANAhMG6xa5I7a

I heard an annoying voice on the other side of the door.copyright protection121PENANA9EwM9W4fVj

" Ollieeeeee! Wake up, my dear Mademoiselle Olliephant!"copyright protection121PENANAFs1z9Bytc3

What was it today? Why did he insist on waking me up from my slumber? He is always waking me up at the crack of dawn, the old cove.copyright protection121PENANA4tPKzmVF52

" Ollie... I know you are awake!" followed by more pounding on the poor door.copyright protection121PENANAPeHl0Qi56d

" OooollieollieollieollieAraElephantOllie!", followed by even more abuse on the poor door.copyright protection121PENANAoMGqmP1Uje

I wondered why it took the abuse. Why did it not just lash out upon the bloke & destroy him. It would surely help me, in the least.copyright protection121PENANAXoHN8ga4Vf

" I am coming in on the count of three, Ollie!" he threatens.copyright protection121PENANA7LuP7uGpzM

As if that would make me do aught at all.copyright protection121PENANADYzjoV9qQt

" One!" he counted.copyright protection121PENANAEORlB0CL4y

I just snuggled into my blankets.copyright protection121PENANA1bjv0q0GQA

" Two!" he announced.copyright protection121PENANAtty2MXYWoP

Why was he counting so slowly? He was going to finish counting when we were old, & by the time, I should have grown a beard! Which was nigh impossible, considering the facts. It would be truly frightful if it were possible, I should have thought.copyright protection121PENANAp2Dgofg10k

" Ollieeeeee, you promised to come out today... You said you would come to the park with me before that bumbling snob of your betrothed came for a fortnight." he pleaded.copyright protection121PENANAz2vTxwkxca

" Hermes is not a bumbling snob, you curmudgeon!!" I yelled in defence.copyright protection121PENANA7FEGIrDHn1

" A-ha! So you are awake!" he yelled as he waltzed in to my chambre.copyright protection121PENANAwM492tojup

I buried myself beneath the covers, like any proper gentle-lady should do. I felt the weight of the bed shift as someone else climbed on.copyright protection121PENANAD4r9YZFiwR

Maybe I should have taken my chances & dashed somewhere else instead of hiding beneath the covers...copyright protection121PENANAtDx8jgzXXX

" Ollieeee, come out, Elephantieee.." he said, terrorizing me, shaking me to the core.copyright protection121PENANAYtJ3DMw261

I stopped breathing, because that way he would definitely not see me. No chance. At all. For a moment, it was all still. I did not feel him move, or make any noise at all.copyright protection121PENANAsJ5UT3Tymp

Then, he ripped the blanket off of me, & I let out a high-pitched shriek with my eyes scrunched closed. copyright protection121PENANAqQ3YYneylc

He cackled, picked me up, & started jumping on the bed. I yelled at him, telling him to put me down, while getting completely shaken by the jumping. He disregarded my shouting & continued jumping, while I started to get air-sick. Except I was not on an air-ship, I was just being...copyright protection121PENANAvjFenj1Tm7

" Rattled around while my dim-witted oaf picks me up & jumps on my bed!!" I yelled at him, trying to kick him with my feet, which he quickly grabbed & immobilised.copyright protection121PENANAUPR0JK4Djq

" Put me down, you dolt!"copyright protection121PENANA2Kh6IfuXNP

" No."copyright protection121PENANA9i9Pxw9zqv

" Why not?!"copyright protection121PENANAHllym4jqHC

" You said you would come to the park with me."copyright protection121PENANARKm8R5ol2b

" I know! I never said I wasn't!"copyright protection121PENANAbcuk12RaBh

" You refused to wake up." he said plainly, as if that explained everything.copyright protection121PENANAGiC1RZ6apO

" Just put me down before I involuntarily discharge the contents of my Internal Edible Material Processor by the probably no longer Edible Material ascending through the Musculo-membranous Passage that leads from the Internal Edible Material Processor to the Alimentary Canal, past my Outer Facial Labium & from there, expelling onto the outer covering of your Physical Being." I gasped for air after having said this rapidly; that is to say, all in one breath.copyright protection121PENANANgy9pqfNMi

" In other words, put me down before I hurl, Pippin. Please." I asked nicely.copyright protection121PENANAZXuuivw9F8

" Nope." He grinned.copyright protection121PENANArmq4ni3tss

Well. Too bad for him. I lifted my head & let out a high-pitched scream. I heard a crash in the not so far distance as Pippin fell backwards, & I landed on the area of his Internal Edible Material Processor, making him gag. I heard running steps coming from my sister's room's direction. I stayed seated on my new chair & waited, Pippin's eyes widening at an astonishing rate. copyright protection121PENANAhfJQp9hFX3

My sister, Elle, explodes through the door holding what seems to be a device used for bashing someone. She looks around the room worriedly, & realising there is nobody, fixes her eyes upon my seat & I angrily, marching over in wrath while I struggle not to have a bodily attack in which one loses control of their Physical Being, convulses, & involuntarily releases spontaneous bursts of air & vocal noises in amusement. (Otherwise termed, laughter.)copyright protection121PENANAXW0rqiXXsD

" Gadaranine Olesya Eberneus!" she said angrily.copyright protection121PENANA5TZvXmO0Qg

Oh dear. Maybe if I smiled exceedingly widely with my mouth shut and my eyes pretty wide it would be better?copyright protection121PENANAt8wcZWmgBj

" Do not laugh at me! I am quite serious, Gadaranine!"copyright protection121PENANAjyfk0GCXD5

I guess not. It was worth a try, though.copyright protection121PENANAAIYzeWW2WM

" You wake me from my slumber, shrieking like a heathen, when it is only Master Peregrine and yourself up to your usual capers. I have been meaning to discuss this matter for some time now. You should know better by now. You are almost a grown lady & yet you frolic & caper about like a mere child! Sitting upon a young man of my age! The shame! It is unheard of & completely unheard of!" she paused, shaking her stately & womanly head in disappointment.copyright protection121PENANAjqVQDUMZan

Discuss. Ha! More like give a speech upon the matter!copyright protection121PENANAiuWyOWfrTS

" ...& you, Peregrine!" she lifted her head & she focused her gaze upon my chair, relieving me of the tirade for now.copyright protection121PENANAwuBu3Qr0Tn

" You, Peregrine, which are as old as I, should be as mature as I am, & yet you encourage her disgrace-making of your family, & the further degradation of ours by joining in, &  even, you dare to initiate such spectacles! You blatantly disregard all boundaries that should be in place due to our different standing in gender & position. You should be gravely ashamed to be skylark making about with a young lady which is engaged, & in her own room, nonetheless!"copyright protection121PENANANcNI2rDOqO

At this, I realised what she was so furious over, & flushed madly as my face morphed into a completely mortified expression.copyright protection121PENANAcJi8h65wyY

I stammered & fumbled as I scrambled off of my former chair, almost fall making flat on my face when getting off the bed, mean-time, miserably try making to explain that it was nothing of the sort, I had never considered it, that was one of the most daft - ridiculous, preposterous, in fact - assumptions I had ever in-taken through my Sound Reception devices.copyright protection121PENANAp4t1zxR0xK

My sister huffs & leaves the room, shoot making a disapprove-showing glance in Pippin's direction, but saying no more.copyright protection121PENANAokXc30DGO3

Hey, guys!! *sits across the table from you and wiggles eyebrows* I know it's kind of soon, (haha it's never too soon, aye?) but what do you think about Pippin and Ara? That nickname, tho... Mademoiselle Olliephant? Yah, nah, or blah?  (That's kinda catchy, isn't it? Say it aloud and you'll see what I mean...)copyright protection121PENANAv1NN94UeBs

**Disclaimer: Oh, you might not want to say it aloud with people around, they'll prolly think you're crazy - might or might not know this from experience... :P**copyright protection121PENANAd1xH36eU6L
