our oddity is the real thing
bloodless and numb,
we orbit the sun

She sat at the edge of the water nude, entranced at the lapping of the waves, the roaring as they crashed further into the darkness.   She held her swollen stomach, cradled the curve in her arm humming now that her song had ended.  Her wings open and hanging limply behind her.  Her son was sleeping peacefully inside and she was enjoying what she thought was likely her last tormented night in this cursed life. 

She was able to appear in her full form now that Naamah was contained.  Her long white waves of shimmering hair lay around her kneeling figure like coils of fine silk thread.  Her scales now gone were replaced with patches of skin that shone like a soft iridescent gold and pink glow kissing the collar bones, shoulders, cheeks, and around her.  Her eyes themselves a bright blue encased in long white lashes that lengthened around the outer corners of her eyes …. Within her gaze were shining spheres of light drifting lazily around the blue.

Can I join you?

A small flinch of her eye and she turned to look at him letting her trance slip away and turned her eyes back to the sea and calmly pulled the lengths of hair from her side. 

"Do as you like.  You've never needed my permission before." she said with a slight damning note to her tone.  Her face was impassive and cold like an angelic headstone mimicking frozen life. 

She folded her wings to her back and stared into the ocean wishing that she could sink into the depths and meet death with her son.  Save him from this place and the pain it promises with each day. 

Angels descending, bring from above,
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

"I wanna change that,"

She sat with the same cold stare fixed upon the dancing waves.  So now he wants to change things.  Certainly too late to change the past she thought with a pain in her chest.  She said nothing. 

"I was considering telling my family soon. As in very soon. Couple days."

She didn’t care to meet his family though admittedly she liked Talon.  It seemed like too good a heart for a demon but what good has she ever known of a demon before now.  It isn’t as if you stop to chat when they attack, murder … etc.  She was taught of their evil, saw it countless times, and now has suffered it for months with firsthand experience and knowledge of that evil and yet … there was compassion.  Can an evil creature feel compassion?  Somehow from him it was just insulting.  Like a child maiming a humming bird and then feeling guilty over his crime.  Is that what I look like?  A wounded bird.  Certainly can’t fly home she thought wistfully.

"You know she seduced me.. I.. "

She stifled a laugh and shook her head.  She said nothing and simply pushed that statement out of her mind ignoring it. 

"What happened to you that night. Why did she take over. I wanted to bust down the door but I didn't.."

We’ve been over it.  It doesn’t matter anymore.  I gave her control.  I couldn’t be around you.

"She seduced me,"

She cringed upon hearing it again and pulled her knees to her chest, letting her wings beat furiously for a moment as she calmed the rage crashing inside of her.  The lightening now skated in brilliant display across the waves.  In the distance bursts of light sprang down from the heavens as though this conversation itself were upsetting her father. 

Perhaps I should have asked her how it was done.  I was too subtle … or too willing.  This also does not matter she said with a dismissive gesture.  What is done is done and making excuses for it is useless since nothing can progress.

"Let us make him his own space. Hina I desire to be in his life. I respect you as the mother of my child. I will do the best that I can for the two of you."

She turned to him enraged.  The spheres in her eyes spun wildly glowing so brightly the light filled her eyes in a brief flash. 

Which two?  Her and the baby?  Me and the baby?  Me and her with the child assumed?
Naamah and I if both awake can hear as one, see as one if the one within wishes to or is pulled to do so.  I heard your insults, your moans, and your judgment’s.  I don’t recall hearing you protest.  No need for pretty lies now. 

"I regret what happened with Naamah."

Liar.

She clenched her jaw and gripped handfuls of sand hoping her anger and grief would slip from her as each grain from her hand.  The conversation was unbearable.  Speaking to him was unbearable. 

"I wasn't ready for this -- I was still young in my mind and at heart."

I don’t care.  You weren’t ready then you shouldn’t … Obviously you didn’t care if I was ready.  You never cared actually …. Not about what I went through or am going through now … certainly not a care about snuffing out my dreams of going home. 

"Will you let me be in his life?"

I get so many choices now.  Brilliant timing.  She could only feel anger and pain coursing through her now. 

"I can't just forget that this never happened. To leave the two of you."

You commit a crime against me … and now you punish further for your actions.  She turned her face from him and laid it on her knee. 

"I see how sad you are. I can feel it. It is though you are wearing a whole sweatsuit or something of it. It shrouds you. --- I never meant to make you feel this way, to want to...die..."

Do you have two people in there?  Rape is not the action to inspire living.  Being a captive does not inspire living.  Being …here …

"He needs you. He needs a mom."

I will see him.  I will pet his head and kiss him and whisper to him for hours as I do now of my love and pride in him.  I suppose until the day I see myself in him no more. 

"Is there anything I can do. I do not care what it is. Something to lift your spirits,"

Yes.  Leave me alone.  Her body wanted to cry … she wanted to lie in the sand and weep as hard as any mortal she saw mourning a lost loved one or a broken heart but she couldn’t will those tears to come.  She felt too much and nothing at all.
