I woke up feeling like I had had a restless night, my limbs felt heavy and my eyes refused to open, and my chest felt like it had been somebody’s punching bag. I tried using my sense of smell to try to distinguish my location but all I could smell was what seemed to be berry scented candles, which I felt Rea probably put up because they calm me down. I was finally able to open my eyes, my body immediately calmed down after noticing my red ceiling donned with black lace, I turned my head around and came face to face? With a large bird, I don’t mean an eagle sized type of bird, this thing was human sized and probably even larger, the creepy thing was the way the bird was looking at me, as if it were looking into my soul. The bird might have had an interesting glimmer about its coat which seemed to change between gold and green. I realised after two straight minutes that I was having a stare-off with a giant bird, I was about to turn my head when, I shit- you-not, the fucking huge bird, spoke to me.
‘I do not mean to startle you, I guess I could’ve been smaller but that’s annoying and my essence is still too weak for me to take human form.’
I just stared at this huge ass bird talking to me as if it was talking about the weather or some crazy shit like that, I could just stare at this bird in amazement. The bird stared back and then slightly jerked, her, and by that voice I assumed it was a her, head seemingly taken aback.
‘Where are my manners? My name is Ophelia, demi-god and daughter of Artemis, at your service’
Ophelia took a dramatic bird-bow just as the door opened and unfortunately from my vantage point, I couldn’t see whoever entered the door
‘Babe stop scaring my little sister please’ I finally turned my head to see my twin walk into the room. Bas was only supposed to come home at the end of his semester which was still two months away from April. I stared at my brother only realising that he called the bird, the shit-scary large ass bird ‘Babe’ he called it, I mean her babe.
‘You are dating a bird? I can’t believe, you are into bestiality’ my voice was hoarse but my words were very clear. I had decided that the speaking part of the bird was some form of concussion
My brother rushed to me and I noticed that my hands and legs were mobile again although my chest still hurt like hell, I could breathe easier. Bas sat on the edge of the bed just as I moved up to sit straight, he looked at me with a pitying smile.
‘How are you feeling’ he spoke in a soft spoken manner, the type he uses when, mine or Beo’s hearts were breaking. I loathe that tonne. I decided not to verbally answer him, so I shrugged at him and he looks to the giant bird. ‘Babe please try to phase into your human form, it will be easier, and you can get some rest after’ the bird looked at him for a what felt like a minute, and then suddenly there was a heavy gust of wind around the bird and when the wind died down in place of the bird was beautiful tall young women. There was nothing else I could do but stare and faint.ns 220.127.116.11da2
