Experiences and Memories 9Oleander was woken by the fairi a little while later. She told him that Dew was alright to leave. He thanked her and went to the backroom where Dew was. She smiled and said they should go.
They walked for a while before Oleander stopped and said. “I should find a place to stay the night” he looked around. Nothing seemed like an inn. He supposed they would be closer to one of the town’s gates.
“If you do not mind the smell of tonics, I have an extra bed” Dew continued towards her own home. Oleander grinned and followed after. The day seemed to be going in his favor.
When they got to where Dew lived he showed him a side room in the house. He asked why she kept it. She just said it was nice to have in case of guests. Dew went up the stairs as Oleander tried to sleep. He found himself too anxious to. He had no idea what he could learn by bringing his familiar back, but it was worth a try. He fell asleep with this thought in his head.
Experiences and Memories 8Lucinda and Oleander hurried along to the hospital. It helped that Dew did not weigh much. Once they reached the healer’s, Oleander asked a young fairi if they were the healer.
The fairy laughed and said no. She then called back to someone named Tarus. An elf came out from the back and looked over Dew. He told Oleander that he would take good care of her and with the fairi’s help brought her into another room.
Oleander and Lucinda found a set of chairs at the far wall of the room and sat. Oleander asked if her head was doing alright, and Lucinda rubbed it. She said it was fine.
The fairi returned from the back and told the pair that it would take some time to help Dew. Lucinda asked how long that was. The fairi shrugged and said she did not know. She then returned to the back.
Lucinda looked outside. It was growing dark already. She had to leave to monitor weather. She told Oleander that she had to go and headed off. Without anyone to talk to Oleander sat back in the chair
Experiences and Memories 7Oleander and Dew decided to find Lucinda and try to explain what happened. They also wanted to know how to explain it to themselves. So they thought it would help to tell someone else. They headed back towards the center of town in order to go from there. They saw plenty of fairies, but not one of them was her. When they reached the fountain marking their destination, they asked a random passerby. She said that she was forced southward by Sony.
“We should probably hurry” said Oleander as Dew and he headed southward. They hurried along, thinking that Lucinda would need help. They walked for a little and saw her arguing with Aeron and Sony. When they got closer, they heard Lucinda yell “NO!”
The two got into a shouting match at this point. It lasted for a few rounds before Oleander called up to ask if Lucinda needed any help. This caused Aeron to laugh. She flew up and brought down a black cloud. “Help” mocked Aeron “you can do nothing to even st
Experiences and Memories 6The two quickly went down the road that they thought Dew had. They followed it, eventually reaching a dead end at the east gate. Wondering where she could be, they noticed a sign reading Tonic Honic. Looking up at it, they were not sure what to expect. They went inside the building under it.
It was a massive and poorly lit tavern. Half the tables were filled with men who were well past drunk. Two of the town guards sat at the counter, but they were clinking glasses and singing. Somehow, over the noise, Oelander and Lucinda heard Dew yelling at the bar keeper Vesper to give her another round. Vesper told her that she had drank too much and should go home. With that remark, Oleander came in and helped Dew up. He said “I will take her home miss” to Vesper.
“I am fine. So just go away and leave me alone” said Dew. Oleander tried to comfort her by holding her hair back, but she pushed him off.
“Are you sure that you are?” said Lucinda, chiming in. She tri
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
