Sylph Blood

On a full moon my family, friends, all my people has been either slaughtered or taken away by the humans. Since that night my life have been shifted too many times and I knew deep down that nothing will ever be the same. And on my death I swear to the gods and goddesses that I will take revenge and show my wrath to the sinful humans.


11. 11


  The smell of delicious soup wafted around the mess hall. I fought to keep my eyes open while eating with Williem. He opted for a pint of blood instead of the soup that I chose. Last night I stayed up with Williem in the crows nest instead of going to sleep after a while like I planned. Now the lack of sleep was quickly catching up on me and I was more than ready for bed. Looking at Williem I could tell that he was just as tired as I am. In a strange way it felt like he was like Luka.

  Both of them were caring and craved for adventures. The two had similar looks in their eyes and the same smirk when teasing me. It was hard not to feel at ease around Williem because of his easy going and friendly demenor. Elenora walked in and took her usual seat beside Williem after getting herself a bowl of soup. "Stay up late you two?" She asked.

  I sighed and laid my head on the table. "Unfortunately. It's all Williem's fault though. He offered me to stay in the crows nest with him to get a feel of it." I told her.

  She smiled widely and laughed a little bit. "Ah. No wonder you wouldn't sleep. Last night was really beautiful as well." She said. "I tried going up there once but the height got to me. Everyone told me that it was exhilarating before I start to climb up. They lied." A small giggle left her lips. 

  "I assume that you won't be joining the classes this morning then?" Cleo asked from the door. I turned to look at her and caught eyes with Aadya. She looked back at me with curiosity. It was hard to look away from her gaze but I managed to look at Cleo to confirm that I wouldn't be joining. When I did she frowned. "You should start building up your strength. If you plan on staying aboard you need to know how to defend yourself at least."

  The two sat in front of us and I found myself wishing that Aadya would sit beside me instead. Quickly I pushed that thought out of my mind to focused on the here and now. "Maybe tomorrow. I am very tired and I wouldn't do any good if I attended while half asleep." 

  Of course that was only part of the reason why I was avoiding the classes. I couldn't let Ranniha corner me and start trying to continue on with my teachings. "How about in the evening then?" Aadya suggested. "I could help show you the basics."

  My thoughts started to drift to spending some time with the captain. Her teaching me how to hold a sword or how to move with it. To her teaching me how to dance and possibly dancing with me. I fought to keep myself from blushing. It was bad enough that I found her attractive and I didn't need anything to fuel my feelings. I looked away from her and bought time by shoving a spoonful of soup in my mouth. 

  When the time was up and she was still waiting for me to answer, my walls crumbled down. This was just a one time offer and even then I wouldn't really know her more because of it. Spending time alone with her for a few hours wouldn't be bad. I nodded and slightly smiled. "Sure. It sounds like a good plan."

  Aadya smiled back at me and something like excitement sparkled in her eyes. Cleo arched her eyebrow at me and Aadya as if something happened that I didn't know about. "Aadya is a very good teacher. I learned a lot from her." Cleo spoke.

  Something about how she said it made a blush creep up my neck. It sounded as if we were talking about something else. Aadya's mouth gapped slightly and she hit the back of Cleo's head. Cleo just laughed it off without an apology. The two started to banter back and forth and I could tell that they were very close friends. "Idiot. Don't say it like that.You'll make poor Amilia get the wrong idea." Aadya hissed.

  I had to fight back the disappointment that tried to claw up my throat. Of course Aadya wouldn't think of me any other way than someone to look after. Almost like a child in a way. When Cleo raised her hands in mock surrender was when Aadya looked at me. "Sorry about Cleo. She is very... friendly." She apologized on her friends behalf.

  "No worries." I assured them and finished the soup. "I'll see you later than captain." 

  As fast as I could I got out of there. Williem followed as the two of us went to the sleep room. We found empty hammocks side by side. As we settled down we didn't speak to each other which I was glad for. I was still trying to wrap my head around on what just happened. Excitment built up now as I thought about spending time with Aadya alone. 

  "Do you like her?" Williem asked. My breath hitched in my throat as whipped my head around to look at him. I didn't know how to respond to that. 

  "What do you mean?" My voice gave away my fear. He laughed and shook his head back and forth. It dawned on me that he knew about my crush on Aadya. "Is it that obvious?" I asked.

  "Not at all. No worries. I could hear your heartbeat pick up a little when you saw her. And how it skipped a beat when she asked if you wanted private lessons." He explained. I sighed and relaxed. "Now good night. You need your sleep to impress her in a few hours."

  With that I threw my pillow at him. He laughed and tossed it back to me. "Don't you dare say a word to anyone about this. If you do I will throw you overboard." I threatened him.

  "Don't worry. Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in eye." He said before drifting off to sleep. Soon enough I was able to calm down enough to sleep as well.
