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 protection98PENANAe2te3KohIl

I heard an annoying voice on the other side of the door.copyright protection98PENANAhAkLL7ZJbP

" Ollieeeeee! Wake up, my dear Mademoiselle Olliephant!"copyright protection98PENANAjKeUPphodm

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 protection98PENANAXspqGsb5KT

" Ollie... I know you are awake!" followed by more pounding on the poor door.copyright protection98PENANAq2uKOfSOY3

" OooollieollieollieollieAraElephantOllie!", followed by even more abuse on the poor door.copyright protection98PENANADiORcEgt2u

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 protection98PENANAQ0WfrDICIt

" I am coming in on the count of three, Ollie!" he threatens.copyright protection98PENANAv8vZTkfL8d

As if that would make me do aught at all.copyright protection98PENANAPLvEDIiTbl

" One!" he counted.copyright protection98PENANAo2lkiMX0oF

I just snuggled into my blankets.copyright protection98PENANAuUO0UIk9tt

" Two!" he announced.copyright protection98PENANAnjfTXSBfMN

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 protection98PENANAAaPWu8Is87

" 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 protection98PENANA8D1XDWFX59

" Hermes is not a bumbling snob, you curmudgeon!!" I yelled in defence.copyright protection98PENANArssGlpzXFl

" A-ha! So you are awake!" he yelled as he waltzed in to my chambre.copyright protection98PENANAKgwAc1IVtQ

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 protection98PENANA2Cu4z70f56

Maybe I should have taken my chances & dashed somewhere else instead of hiding beneath the covers...copyright protection98PENANAowyRdUgMRW

" Ollieeee, come out, Elephantieee.." he said, terrorizing me, shaking me to the core.copyright protection98PENANA8BcEcpFUk9

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 protection98PENANALnMfrlmsBr

Then, he ripped the blanket off of me, & I let out a high-pitched shriek with my eyes scrunched closed. copyright protection98PENANAyZY6Rc18YT

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 protection98PENANA47vhMHHsB1

" 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 protection98PENANABmpoBQJYil

" Put me down, you dolt!"copyright protection98PENANApQloXcAZkz

" No."copyright protection98PENANASoHnGt4nVF

" Why not?!"copyright protection98PENANApx2OVDEFBX

" You said you would come to the park with me."copyright protection98PENANA11OmqLy0KS

" I know! I never said I wasn't!"copyright protection98PENANAADhh0XK4lG

" You refused to wake up." he said plainly, as if that explained everything.copyright protection98PENANAKKeMyaqdQ2

" 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 protection98PENANAbR4ZduLLuw

" In other words, put me down before I hurl, Pippin. Please." I asked nicely.copyright protection98PENANAE59Vm9T6ee

" Nope." He grinned.copyright protection98PENANANZZ2MycdL2

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 protection98PENANAfWTjW6OHSi

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 protection98PENANAdwonsKwlRL

" Gadaranine Olesya Eberneus!" she said angrily.copyright protection98PENANAAELzGy7TLT

Oh dear. Maybe if I smiled exceedingly widely with my mouth shut and my eyes pretty wide it would be better?copyright protection98PENANAV1QPkMV8tO

" Do not laugh at me! I am quite serious, Gadaranine!"copyright protection98PENANArHkP4NAB8r

I guess not. It was worth a try, though.copyright protection98PENANAnJ68jNGrGs

" 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 protection98PENANAkBtbqOXmXr

Discuss. Ha! More like give a speech upon the matter!copyright protection98PENANAao8veciPOr

" ...& you, Peregrine!" she lifted her head & she focused her gaze upon my chair, relieving me of the tirade for now.copyright protection98PENANAgbbmku90VP

" 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 protection98PENANAtgrWrSKpfH

At this, I realised what she was so furious over, & flushed madly as my face morphed into a completely mortified expression.copyright protection98PENANAQq6YVlbeaZ

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 protection98PENANAFqaQNulWvh

My sister huffs & leaves the room, shoot making a disapprove-showing glance in Pippin's direction, but saying no more.copyright protection98PENANAMZyeVZ6Gpl

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 protection98PENANAnfLueHQqV0

**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 protection98PENANApBrAse5ObB

Don't forget to like if you liked it. (Obviously.)copyright protection98PENANA5YADcwDjc2
