There are many different types of species out there. I had to be an elf. It's not the best but at least I'm not a test subject like demons. Demons are the most powerful species there is, especially dark demons. Oh wait I didn't tell you about the elementals each species has. Elf's can have fire, water, light, darkness, time or space. Demons can have fire, ice, darkness, space and time. And lastly, fairy's can have earth, water, and light. The only species that don't have elements are humans and androids. Androids are robots that are designed to look exactly like humans. Android have two different type; the regular ones (their whole existence is to obey their masters ) and the deviant (are ones who disobey them and can do what they want.) but once deviants are spotted they get dismantled.
In this mystical world I call home there is many different and unique things you can experience, good and bad. Mine seems like it's on a loop of the bad one from the beginning
It all started when my parents got a divorce when I was like two. My mother was a human and my father was an elf and most cross specie relationship doesn't end well. Me and my brother, Astro, stayed with our mother, Diana. But my other brother, Ravi, went with our father. I guess I got to see them before they left, but I don't remember because I was so young. I don't even know much about them either. Diana forbade Astro to tell me anything about them. But before she made that a rule, Astro tried to tell me a bit about Ravi.
Four years later after their parents split:
(Aruna is 6 and Astro is 9
Aruna walked up to Astro. "Hey Astro, can I ask a question?" She asked
"What is it." Astro replied while he was finishing his homework.
"What was Ravi like?" Aruna asked.
Astro stopped and looked down. Astro said, "Ravi. . . he was a very sweet and always fun to play with. He always made any situation fun. I was his only friend since the other kids thought he was weird for being one of the only humans that went to our school. . . . I wish you got to spend more time with him that you would have remembered. Ravi woul-"
"ASTRO!" Diana yelled, interrupted Astro. She heard them talking from the other room. "What do you think you are doing!?" She says, looking at Astro furiously.
Aruna backed away while shaking.
Astro looked at Diana with wide eyes. " I- I was just t-telling Aruna about Ravi." He said with a shaky voice.
Diana storms towards Astro. "And what makes you think you're allowed to do that!?" Diana yells and then slaps Astro.
Astro looks down with tears in his eyes. "I-I don't know. I'm sorry..." he replies.
Diana picks Astro up by the neck. "You are not allowed to talk about that unless little piece of shit!"
Auran runs up to Diana and starts hitting legs as hard as she could. "LET HIM GO!" Aruna screams while crying.
Diana lets go of Astros neck. Astro gasps for air and backs away. Diana looks at Aruna with rage in her eyes.
"Oh so now you want to cause problems?" Diana says and then pushes Aruna to the ground. Diana crouches down and grabs Aruna's face tightly.
Aruna looks Diana with full panic in her eyes. She is frozen in fear and can't move.
"I will do far worse than picking you up by the neck if you want to cause problems again, so you better think wisely before you cause problems" Diana said. Diana stand up and looks at Astro. "And don't bring that useless brat up again. And don't even think of bringing up your so called father, if you do bringing either of them up I will kill you without a second thought."
Astro stares at Diana with tears in his eyes and watches Diana leave. Aruna bursts into tears and starts sobbing. And Astro runs up to Aruna
"Hey hey, it's ok. She is gone. Can I see if you have any major injuries anywhere?" Astro said with a worried expression on his face.
Aruna looks up at Astro and nods. Astro checks her face and back of the head for any injuries and only finds a bump on the back of her head. Astro figures it's nothing to serious and sighs.
Aruna looks at Astro's neck. "Is your neck ok? Can you breathe properly?" She said worried.
"Yes I can breathe properly, it just hurts a bit." Astro says. He looks at Aruna. "Hey, if mother ever tried to hurt you I wouldn't allow her. I hate see you get hurt.."
