lithium's storyi opened my eyes. i gazed at my surroundings.
i was in the pigeon loft of riala's library. i have been
hanging around this place, it's the only place riala will let me stay.
i stretched my limbs after my nap and groomed my sleek black fur.
i am quite handsome in my fox form if i do say so myself.
i squeezed through the narrow entrance to the loft
and headed down a tunnel to the main part of the library.
before i went through the door, i transformed to a sylph
like form. i opened the door and walked into the library.
tall rows of bookshelves reached to the ceiling high above
surrounded me. there was a spell sprite sorting the books
of one shelf. i thought to myself shall i cause trouble?
but if one of the sylphs are around they are sure to
hear the sprite alarm the others. so i calmly passed by it.
a small silver fox dashed over the wooden floor
with several scrolls in his mouth and his fur smeared with ink.
it was jashi. the one that helped foil so many of my p
shineko's storyi woke up and yawned. just another day
in my boring life. i picked up my futon from
the floor and stuffed it in the closet.
i walked right through the kitchen.
"i'll just skip breakfast. i don't really feel like eating
anyway." i thought as i headed for the door.
i walked up a flight of steps and came out through
a hollow tree with a door on it. i gazed around
to determine the weather for the day.
i looked up at the position of the sun.
"shit, i slept past noon i'll be late for work!"
i said under my breath. i took a deep breath.
the scent of ash and sulfur filled my lungs.
this place was anything but cozy. a long time
ago, there was a war where i am standing now.
most of the trees here are burnt to stumps.
and the soil is so non-fertile nothing grows in it's place.
i started to head out east to the village.
i live in my girlfriend's library because i'm
not welcome in town. because i'm part human.
i come for a few hours and work in the fields and lea
still together in our heartseven though we are apart,
i still have you in my heart.
tiny threads of fate,
connect us it's not too late,
i won't give up, i won't give up,
for we are still connected in our hearts,
and nothing will ever tear us apart.
the seasons change i have not seen you in years,
but still i am strong and cast away all of my fears,
for we are still together in mysterious ways,
until you return i will count the days,
for we are still together in our hearts.
fate has put me on a very hard road to follow,
but i still can have hope in tomorrow,
for no matter where it takes me,
my spirit and soul is still free,
and it only belongs to you.
none can replace,
your kind smiling face,
there's no other i'd rather be with,
because finding another is just a myth.
i pour out my feelings in an endless rhyme,
for it seems to help pass the time,
you've been far gone,
for so long,
I've almost learned to be without you.
even though you are far away,
we are still together in our hearts.
a day in eclipse's lifeone autumn evening i snuck out of the library where
i was temporarily living to visit the nearby river.
it's just north of here. as i walked a tear rolled down my face.
it won't be the same without him. my soulmate.
i've always wanted to go places like this on
the island of lonn with him. but i never will,
now that he's gone. ever since the gate to
our worlds closed, i haven't seen him, or anyone
from the other side of the gate into places
like the random world or atlantis or robator island.
time here has skipped and changed. it's
gone back a few years, and forward too!
if i have been keeping track of lonn's shifting
time right, i have not seen jay in almost fifteen years.
which is nothing in sylph years. only about three.
but it's still a long time to be without him.
i wonder how long it's been out on his side.
i sat down by the edge of the river and
i listened to the calm sounds of rushing water
in the river and started to doze off.
then, i was awoken by the shrill call of a bluejay.
Keep in Touch!
