my name is anna. i live in the circus as the main attraction. no
not because i was pretty, i was a freak. i was born with wings as
black as night (the cool part is i can fold them in my back and
look normal). i also have tattoos that i was born with. on my back
beautiful swirls, on my face swirls and roses, and on the rest of
my body vines, swirls, roses, thorns, and beautiful moon markings.
i was weird and a freak, and as saraphina had put it i was drop
dead gorgeous. but i knew i wasn't as pretty or beautiful as sara.
"hey anna, wake up sleeping beauty" sara told me softly. "nnn 5
more minutes" i told her seepily. "wake your tiny ass up anna!!"
she yelled. i jumped out of bed. "holy crap, could be any more
louder!" i said. "nope, i have something for you miss anna night"
she said, oh btw night was given to me for two reasons. 1. i had no
last name, 2. sara thought it was a bad ass last name. and also
sara is the best semstress ever. "what now sara?" i said groggily.
she rolled her eyes and said, "i made a new outfit for you" "aw
crap sara. don't tell me it's another silk dress?"i said "haha very
funny. actually made you a two peice outfit. i think you'll like
it." she walked to my closet and pulled out a black outfit. the top
was mid-drift (which means it stops at the top of my stomach) and
cool black stops-at the knees jeans. she also had a choker made out
of belt material, boots, and cool wrist bands. "what do you think
anna?" she asked. i ran and hugged her. "your the best sara, thank
you so much i like it." i said. it was bad ass with the right
amount of sexy. "get dress bird girl, you have a show to do!" said
the master. "alright" i told him. but when i was done, he chained
me up in the cage. "unfold your wings idiot" he said, and i did.
"good act vicous and angry and sad" he told me. i always did what i
was told, just so i could earn my freedom. "ladies and gentlemen, i
give you the freak of nature. part human part bird.i give you bird
girl" the curtains went up, and i did my most freakish screech and
i thrashed. he pulled out a whip and my eyes widened. he hit me
more than i could count, but i still acted vicous. "stop!" i heard
someone say. probably a boy. then a boy stepped up in front of the
cage. ''what are you doing stupid boy!" my master asked. "stopping
you, you sick bastard!" he said. 'shut up! i deserve this! please
be quit!' i shouted in my head but couldn't say the words. "you
fool, don't you see? this creature deserves this, she is a crime
against nature!" my master said. "she is not! if you would let her
act the way she wants then you'll see how sweet she is!" he
shouted. 'why is this human defending me? how stupid' i thought. i
crumpled to floor, tired and in pain. "see! look at her! does she
really deserve this? who cares if she;s different?" the boy said.
"stop you idiot!" i shouted. everyone gasped, they didn;t know i
could talk. "shut up beast!" my master shouted and hit me again
with the whip. i screamed as more stinging pain engulfed me. "stop!
look what you're doing! you're hurting her!" the boy said. he
grabbed the whip from my master and my master fell to floor.
"stupid boy! if she gets out you'll all be dead!" my master
shouted. everyone was scared to help the human boy who was
protecting me. "stop. don't. keep. protecting. me. i. don't.
deserve. niceness" i said between painful gasps. "you deserve to be
saved anna. sara! unlock the chains!" the boy shouted. soon sara
came out and unchained my hands,feet, and throat. she lifted me up
and walked me out of my cage. she stood me next to the human boy.
he grabbed hold of me so i wouldn't fall. "see she doesn;t seem
dangerous does she" then i felt i familar pain in my foot, my
master had bit me and hard. i screeched and took to the sky out of
reach of anyone. "run! save yourselves!" my master shouted.
everyone ran screaming. some grabbed weapons and tried to hit me.
as soon as i was above the forest. someone threw rope with rocks
tied to each end, wrapped around my arms and wings. next thing i
knew i was falling then everything went black.
