Chapter 1- The Night It All Happened
A beauty she was, only 19 years of age, but she held a dark dream inside her- little did she know I had been watching, so I granted her wish true. It
was a Friday night in October, and the God were sending down thunderous amounts of rain and such- it was in fact due to me they were having such a
tantrum in the sky. But, that will be explained another day, for now let us return to our swan- who was at the time walking aimlessly upon a beach watching the waves crash upon the shore.
She wore a black fitted trench coat that was buttoned completely, the collar on it pulled up around her face shedding everything just below her nose. Her hair was
black and drenched from the rain as it whipped at her back from the tantrum of the gods. She was pale and frail in size- a good specimen I though at the time. Her skin was flawless- as long as you
ignored the unusual lack of color you’d think ones face should have, but the best of her in my belief were her eyes. Such bright eyes are what caught my attention originally; an ocean blue outer
iris with a green center being merged with the blue around it. At first I dismissed them as contacts, but much to my delight I had been wrong such eyes, such a body, it could create me such a
I knew what I wanted do at that point, feeling a sense greed well-up in me, but I knew I could not act upon any desire of my own, for that was my one punishment that
the gods had situated upon my shoulders; along with their idea of an ironic punishment for having all my wishes come true. “…You shall be sentenced to a lifetime of servitude to the gods, your
curse shall be to serve only other, to make only their wishes come true for your previous actions of selfishness.” To me the Gods made little sense, they cared so much about there precious humans
they created, but yet they did the same I had been punished for- personal gain. But again, that is of another story to tell.
As I watched the girl from my hidden situated spot I waited knowing in my bones something interesting would be happening, something that very well might allow me to
have my desires created- so I waited. I had waited quite some time as the girl traipsed about, looking up into the storm, and finally deciding to lay on a flat rock where waves just barely were out
Then, my dream came true, she uttered the very words that created this entire story-“I wish I could leave, I wish I could just fall into somewhere new, I want something new, I want change”
She never specified what kind of change, she never said where she wanted to leave to, she never said what she wanted to be that something new-and it because of humans being as broad as they are that my plan took itself into action.
