7. chapter 7
I must had fell asleep as I awoke knowing that time had slipped away from me as once again I hear one of my relatives was at my door. I was not in the mood to let myself go through with this again.
“Azyla.” There was something different about the tone of voice this time. It was not demanding or of begging to come in but this time it was like she was asking to come in instead of the demand that I had been getting all this time.
“What?” I hissed and there was a moment of silence of me wondering if she had given up but it was her thinking of what to say next.
“Can I come in? Arcum and your mom are asleep in their quarters. I came on my own.” She said and it sounded like she did do just that and I opened my door to her to where only her can slip through.
“What do you want?” I hissed as warning instead of a welcome.
“I can tell that you are upset and to keep the record straight about our markings.” She chimed and I was unsure what she meant until I felt a hand touch my shoulder. The calm felling from it had me trace it back to her thinking that she knows me a bit too well.
“What is the part of the marking that I was going to find?” I asked thinking that I heard something like a rock hitting the window that was for my bedroom.
“It looks like he is here to answer it for us.” Aunt Greave sighed and I looked to my window. The white rocks looked like little stars that had fallen out of the sky and seemed to land on my window. I ran up to it and looked down to see Shank standing in my own front lawn and waving me down for some resin. I can see the darkened suit outline his bright skin that looked like it hadn’t seen the sun in decades instead of earlier.
I looked at her quickly and she was already at the entrance to a new life. I was thinking that to do next and Greave looked at me in wonder. I start to step forward and nodded. “You are going to know one day and I think that it should be now.”
I was ecstatic that I had the confirmation to learn about our past while I ran up and hugged my aunt and ran out thinking that I am finally going to the one thing that I need to know without being jugged yet.
