Hi! Here's the thing, i felt guilty for leaving you on edge for weeks, so i thought i'd update with...
A DOUBLE POST!!!
yes, so if you are utterly sad and keep refreshing this page every second of the day, then in a sec you'll see the next part up after you read this ;)
Skyril walked slowly to the bus stop. Her bus was already there, and she smiled as the driver turned the gas off, and slumped in his seat. She wouldn’t have to hurry tonight.
It was barely 7am, and Skyril was still thinking about the girl that she had crossed paths with earlier. She tried not to. The girl obviously was young, a beginner if she thought it was clever to shape shift in an area where anyone could’ve seen her. Skyril frowned because the eagle form reminded her of Skylara. And she didn’t want to think about Skylara then. She didn’t want to think about Jodi: a con artist she had spent her life trying to track, and now that she was captured, Skyril had no clue what to do next. What was she supposed to do?
The bus wasn’t far away now. Skyril could see that the driver was sleeping with his hat pulled low. She could see-
It hit her quickly, a fist around the face and a kick to the ribs. Skyril clutched her chest in pain, keeping her eyes shut to stop the tears from showing.
“Night night.” A gentle female voice whispered in her ear. Skyril opened her eyes, noticing Skylara and Israel both standing above her. Skyril looked over to the bus in desperation, but the driver’s head was turned away, and it seemed as if he was ready to set off. She would not go out helpless. She would not let people ruin her.
Skylara bent down to Skyril’s level, and sprayed a black mist over Skyril’s face. Skyril felt her eyes sting and her throat burn like fire. She couldn’t feel the pain in her chest: she wasn’t sure if she could still breathe.
All she knew was that somewhere out there Jodi was locked up in a bound cell. Alone. The thought made Skyril smile, as she closed herself from the world.
“Okay Miss Oblivion,” Skylara said, smiling widely. “We’re going to free Jodi Harte.”
“What!” Skyril yelled. She would’ve sprung for Skylara, but the shackles were tied to the back of her chair, and her feet were tied to the two front legs of the chair. “Impossible, you can’t just let her go.”
“Sorry, but by ‘we’, we meant you.”
Skyril licked her lips in frustration. She closed her eyes, thinking about that vision she had seen, and realising she was really in no position to fight; Skyril just sighed. “God Damn it! This isn’t fair; why should she be allowed to roam free when so many others don’t? Those people she conned deserve justice-”
“And right now, Jodi deserves fairness. Be a realist Skyril. We got a note about someone wanting to kill Jodi less than a month ago. Our Sanctuaries suck. There’s no way she’ll be safe in there.”
Israel Elysium watched as Skyril’s expression dropped. “I know you don’t agree.” Israel muttered. “But we were given orders to protect her. Right now, she is the victim. In addition, we are supposed to save that character, at least in this chapter. So what do you say?”
Skyril shifted slightly in her seat. “How do I know I can trust you? Why should I?”
“Because you literally,” Skylara muttered, leaning back on her chair opposite Skyril. “Have no other choice.”
“Hey Bridget!” Israel greeted down the phone. “You bored? Would you like to become a fugitive with me?”
Bridget grumbled down the phone line, mumbling something that sounded like ‘what trouble have you got yourself in’ through the shaky reception.
“You still got that lump of metal? Good. Okay, you in London? Come down to Baker’s Street. I’ll walk up and down the street and I’ll wave if I see you. Why am I whispering? Do you know Skyril Oblivion? No? Well, surely you’ve heard something, right? No? You don’t get out much, do you? Hey, no that wasn’t a joke, just... wait, you’re in London already? Well, I guess I’ll see you in about half an hour then. Good. Fine. Bye. You know what, just hang up the damn- Hello?”
Jodi Harte lay back in her cell. After trying to convince a cleaver to play a game I Spy with her, she had decided to just think, about everything, and about nothing, all at once. And then she could get it all over with, and then maybe, she wouldn’t have to think about it again.
The doctor she had been given was a beautiful woman with long brown hair and blonde high lights. She took one look at Jodi and said ‘Hell, who’s cheerio’s did you pee in?’ laughed at her own joke, and quickly put Jodi under. When Jodi woke back up, she had been in her cell, eyes still burning. She thought about her car. She wanted her damn car back. She wanted her life back. She wanted what she had been looking for her whole life.
Her eyes opened in a flash, as she sat bolt upright. She quickly slid down again, then smashed her head against the tiles before she could even think, and that was the idea. She could not think about this, of what she simply needed, because if she thought about it, then it would only peel back the Jodi Harte everyone knew. It would unravel her and break her. She slammed her head down once more, wondering whether or not this made her crazy, or stupid. Jodi saw the blood, and began to panic. She held her hand to her forehead, eyes still ablaze, and now her head was throbbing.
She was guilty of making herself her own victim. Jodi Harte knew that. She also knew that now nothing hurt her underneath the skin, beneath the heart. And just because this time Jodi had lost, it didn’t mean Skyril’s victory would be replaced by someone else’s...
Because someone was coming for Jodi Harte.
And Jodi knew it too.
Sorry Skyril, you seem to keep ending up as the misunderstood character :/ anyway, i'm going to give you your own story after i've finished, so you've got a kind of balanced view of your character. plus, Luna Devine, if you'd like your own piece, could you please post your OC to Bio Rama (message Lizzy, she's following me on this - and then she'll add you as a writer of Bio Rama and then you can post you Original Character there) or if it's quicker, just post it in the comment section xD
