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 protection172PENANAOeTtDKEqw4

I heard an annoying voice on the other side of the door.copyright protection172PENANA1Ksc8Zze4u

" Ollieeeeee! Wake up, my dear Mademoiselle Olliephant!"copyright protection172PENANAXvoAiksELp

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 protection172PENANAPADI4gsIGY

" Ollie... I know you are awake!" followed by more pounding on the poor door.copyright protection172PENANANIJgVSfv6k

" OooollieollieollieollieAraElephantOllie!", followed by even more abuse on the poor door.copyright protection172PENANA03PoE8I7Mu

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 protection172PENANAwB59k9qMS7

" I am coming in on the count of three, Ollie!" he threatens.copyright protection172PENANALFQvVMnahu

As if that would make me do aught at all.copyright protection172PENANAuhykGcspje

" One!" he counted.copyright protection172PENANAUPPZZ99qW1

I just snuggled into my blankets.copyright protection172PENANAyIGoeCaBNs

" Two!" he announced.copyright protection172PENANA6iJECpQ4Pa

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 protection172PENANAiJZ8IZiSpe

" 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 protection172PENANATXXAmbcwNZ

" Hermes is not a bumbling snob, you curmudgeon!!" I yelled in defence.copyright protection172PENANAYTiIxU8oYX

" A-ha! So you are awake!" he yelled as he waltzed in to my chambre.copyright protection172PENANAyhHyqqxIiW

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 protection172PENANAXbUUMg5YNS

Maybe I should have taken my chances & dashed somewhere else instead of hiding beneath the covers...copyright protection172PENANAYLMhujbCIa

" Ollieeee, come out, Elephantieee.." he said, terrorizing me, shaking me to the core.copyright protection172PENANAAgrhOSHlAZ

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 protection172PENANAixbcrXtxWg

Then, he ripped the blanket off of me, & I let out a high-pitched shriek with my eyes scrunched closed. copyright protection172PENANAqV2dcwwo8f

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 protection172PENANAyJv00kSIGs

" 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 protection172PENANAHY0TbsRE0O

" Put me down, you dolt!"copyright protection172PENANAUqKXDWtalC

" No."copyright protection172PENANAqTlVUlfM3V

" Why not?!"copyright protection172PENANAfLUfF5IwKI

" You said you would come to the park with me."copyright protection172PENANAlF95CN25Xn

" I know! I never said I wasn't!"copyright protection172PENANAHoh3jbozYs

" You refused to wake up." he said plainly, as if that explained everything.copyright protection172PENANAvdeqtUvbrg

" 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 protection172PENANATMW2RyQTEO

" In other words, put me down before I hurl, Pippin. Please." I asked nicely.copyright protection172PENANAhmcypvJO5H

" Nope." He grinned.copyright protection172PENANAhAVv1oqwAR

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 protection172PENANANtDJwvimpW

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 protection172PENANAbGineISXwY

" Gadaranine Olesya Eberneus!" she said angrily.copyright protection172PENANAFNzAjAYJ7y

Oh dear. Maybe if I smiled exceedingly widely with my mouth shut and my eyes pretty wide it would be better?copyright protection172PENANAAU2eEzJWW8

" Do not laugh at me! I am quite serious, Gadaranine!"copyright protection172PENANAT7Pbv3Un1q

I guess not. It was worth a try, though.copyright protection172PENANAmGdVhxvggC

" 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 protection172PENANAPRxS5bsO8o

Discuss. Ha! More like give a speech upon the matter!copyright protection172PENANAX1wMd1Q7pR

" ...& you, Peregrine!" she lifted her head & she focused her gaze upon my chair, relieving me of the tirade for now.copyright protection172PENANAxLyLGQic6z

" 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 protection172PENANAPVqmNvyfkG

At this, I realised what she was so furious over, & flushed madly as my face morphed into a completely mortified expression.copyright protection172PENANAEhHb4VdV2D

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 protection172PENANANAolm5cFii

My sister huffs & leaves the room, shoot making a disapprove-showing glance in Pippin's direction, but saying no more.copyright protection172PENANAe7eEt1a1hu

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 protection172PENANAIWMq7RllMo

**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 protection172PENANAYzZmVms71K

Don't forget to like if you liked it. (Obviously.)copyright protection172PENANAqfSEUmF5nX
