I sat in the passenger's seat of a car tapping my phone screen, why did my brother have to be so difficult. He could never leave me alone, it was somewhat scary at times.
Big bro: come home now
Me: Leave me alone!
I blocked his number looking out the window. He was insufferable, I pressed a hand to the bruise on my cheek. He’d hit me before, but never in my face. I suppressed the tears in my eyes pressing my hands together.
Suddenly the car spun around twisting and turning. I tried to turn to the taxi driver but my head slammed into the glass window, everything spinning.
It hurt, my entire body hurt. Pain growing through my entire body. My vision started to cloud and I could feel myself going in and out. Was I really going to die?
“Oh princess, you're so cute!” I heard a rattling noise as I laid in black darkness. A rattling sound? The last thing I remembered was my head hitting the window. I opened my eyes to see a woman towering over me. “Hello princess!” Her hair was white as snow and her eyes a golden color. How was that possible? She was wearing a maids uniform, and was she calling me princess?
I tried to sit up from my spot but could barely lift my head. “Oh! Would you like to get up, little princess?” The woman lifted me up, placing me onto the floor in front of a mirror. The room was filled with toys and looked like it was out of a movie.
I looked into the mirror and my eyes widened. I reached my hand out to touch the mirror, the baby in the reflection doing the same. My hands were small and chubby, did I die and get reincarnated? Or maybe i've been reading too many light novels,
This must have been a dream. I had bright blue hair and red eyes, with two small horns growing from my forehead. It was even stranger than the woman. I struggled to turn my head to look at her.
She was smiling warmly as if she were my mommy. “Your so cute princess Ludocielle” she rubbed my back.
Ludocielle? That wasn’t my name? But it must be the name of this baby… and this baby was me? I am a baby? A princess? What was going on is apparently clear but I don't think that I could wrap my head around it.
I slapped my face, nothing happening but my cheeks turning red. My body leaned forward and I couldn't stop it. “Oh princess!” The maid caught my shoulders before I could fall. She picked me up grabbing one of those shaky toys from the dresser.
“Hello Tuli, I’m here to see my baby sister!” a young boy with dirty blonde hair and small horns growing from his head came into the room. He had on a fine outfit and his hair was in a ponytail.
The maid giggled gently putting me in his arms “be careful”. Was this boy meant to be my brother?
Wait wait, she can’t give me to this kid! What if he drops me? I’ll die all over again! I squirmed trying to grab onto the maids' clothes. Maybe if I cried she wouldn’t give me up. My eyes watered and I screamed as loud as I could.
“... what did I do! Tuli, why is she crying?” the boy's eyes started to water.
The maid patted the boy's shoulder, almost laughing at the pitiful sight. Two siblings crying over nothing “it’s okay prince Husk, i’ll take care of it”. She smiled, taking me over her shoulder.
How was I supposed to live like this? I had just turned 19 a week away from getting out of my brother's house. Now I'm a baby! I’ll never live this down.
