Out in The Onyx Forest. Standing tall yet well hidden within the wild plants and darkness, is a beautiful house that can't be described unless you look at it from the front and not above as you can't tell it from the trees from above, it perfectly resembles it's surroundings from above. The exterior is that of Onyx and glittering white diamond, like the colors of the trees around it. The windows are casements windows, can be opened inward or outward depending of what the residents wanted, there're stain glass windows on the upper levels depending on where you go. Outside the house is a beautiful fence of dark crystal and a few of the top of certain bars of the fence is a large crystal skull with gemstones for eyes, each skull has different sets of gemstones for eyes. The yard is filled to the very brim with beautiful plants, all vibrant and healthy. In some places of the garden, if you follow the crushed crystallized path with lantern lights on the both sides of the path, you'll see fountains with different kinds of liquid flowing through them, one fountain in particular made of pearl (of different kinds), aquamarine, and lapis lazuli has pure clean water flowing around. The cleanest water around. There're multiple kinds of plants and trees all around the property.
What kind of house is this? So far from civilization and no convenience for miles? Where the only way to get anything is to make it or get it yourself? Simple.
This is The Eden House.
Early one morning. A small hybrid of a wolf, dog, fox, eagle, owl and panther mainly black with blue and purple in places woke up and stretched. The hybrid has the body type of a panther, the sturdiness of a wolf with the matching teeth, the loyalty of a dog with fur fluff of dogs, the wings of eagle with the feather structure of an owl, tail that is long like a panther with the fluffiness of a fox with the ears that is a mixture of the wolf, fox and dog but the shape is that of a fox. The hybrid is in a dark room laying in what looks like an hybrid of a next and a pet bed and is incredibly large and fluffy with it's own blankets and pillows. It climbs out of it's bed and tap twice on the hardwood floor, actively avoiding the soft carpets that are strategically placed around the room. The lights turn on, orbs with glass structures of different shapes alight, mainly the ones of gold, orange and clear (white); those ones are in one shape. A perfect circle. As light floods the room, the walls are a beautiful blue sapphire with burning gold murals of beautiful swirls that might not make sense to others but makes sense to the resident. The bed in the corner is rectangular in shape but is quite fluffy, the bedspread is black with pink pearl stars all over it, the pillows are of different sizes and are of the same colors as the bedspread albeit with a few different ones. There're two large body pillows, one is white and in the shape of a pair of wings (with a marquise cut gem in the middle) that span the length of the head of the bed and can support all the other pillows, the other one is a lavender heart with lily embroidery upon it. The lump in it covered in pillows and the blankets groans at the light shining upon them. The hybrid huffs a laugh and leaps onto the bed causing a mixture of a shriek and a groan upon impact,
"Get up Lilliana." says the hybrid, pushing his paws upon the lump causing more grunts from said lump, his voice is not that deep but can't be placed between tenor or base, young no doubt.
"Come on Nierion. Five more minutes?" says the lump, soprano voiced female, sounds slightly husky/hoarse and weirdly quiet as if she doesn't speak all that much. Her voice is pleasant though like slow honey.
"I'm afraid not." the hybrid says as he jumps upon the lump again causing another grunt from the girl, "We're on a time limit. It's that time of the year again. Get up." the hybrid finishes and the lump begins to move and a mop of wild rose red hair wrapped in ribbons, crystal curlers and a quickly disintegrating yellow cap rising from the comfortable bed. The pillows now away from the girl and is now sitting up, her skin is deep brown, as she gets up, she has very slender and petite body type and frame with no boobs nor ass to speak of, she looks like that she is recovering from some sort of ordeal that cost her to almost look like a walking skeleton. Her face is inverted triangle shape with a long bridge nose, semi-full lips that can be mistaken for thin unless you look closely, sunken almond shaped eyes that is cognac brown in color that is (again) recovering. She is dressed in a knee length spaghetti strap, flowy pastel yellow with green polkadots nightgown. She walks to the bathroom to do her business involving the porcelain throne for a good ten minutes, this Detoxification Potion is quite potent, she thought as she groaned, apparently this one is more potent than the last three, I'll tell Sofia about the results of this one. she thought as she painfully pushed the last of waste into the toilet bowl, if I manage to get off the crapper that is, she chuckles as she groans painfully onto the toilet; she's pushing out something quite fierce.
Is this my punishment for drinking it straight instead of infusing it into my food like Sofia said, she thought as she got off the toilet finally stopped letting out half of her body weight, she looked into the toilet, no blood. No organs. Just urine and feces and toilet paper on top. Success, she thought and she flushed the toilet and the bowl itself glowed blue and the interior of the bowl was covered in runes as all of the waste within of the bowl went down, "damn. That was a lot." she mutters to herself as she walks away of the toilet and she walks to the sinks and thoroughly washes her hands in hot water, the soap being a glittering mixture of blue and purple. A good five minutes of vicious scrubbing of her hands and wrists later, she dried off her hands using the hand towel floating next to her. She then got her toothbrush, the color combination of the starry sky while the head and bristles are the colors of a white supernova mixed with the golden rays of the sun. The toothbrush is akin to an electric toothbrush but doesn't stop when the head is getting a little too dirty or from the daily usage...and doesn't run on batteries, it's also self cleaning/repairing when not in use. She got a pastel green tube, uncapped it and a shimmering mint green paste got onto the toothbrush, recapped the tube and put it back where it was. It only began moving (it moves in two ways, side to side and up and down) once she began brushing. She had been brushing teeth including her tongue for a total of five minutes and she brushes incredibly hard, she can visibly sees the plaque come out into the lathering, her gums becoming healthier and the yellow of her teeth beginning to go into the lathering of her toothpaste. Once she spits she sees all the shit come out into the sink and when she rinses it brought out a lot more of the filth and staining. Her teeth had not just been cleaned but her enamel has been repaired as well. Her gums has become healthier too. She then finally rinses her mouth with really hot water and swishes it around for a good minute.
She then got a large bottle filled with a blue fluorite liquid with a cup for the lid, she filled it up to the brim and clocked it back; with practiced ease, she swished it around her mouth as hard as she could without swallowing said liquid and at the last ten to thirty seconds she gurgled the liquid and spat it back into the sink, all the filth and damaging bacteria that would've turned into a major problem (including cavities) went into the sink with the liquid that turned from blue fluorite to blue azurite. Huh. That's not good. Glad I caught it before it got worse, she thought, her breath now smelled incredibly good and her teeth is very much white. She then washes her face with a clear bubbly formula with the bubbles being the colors of citrus fruits, she scrubs her face with that formula and the bubbles burst upon contact with her skin and once clean, her skin smelled like the citrus of the freshest variety, any or all blemishes are gone, all black heads and dirt have been washed away, the dark circles around her sullen eyes are getting lighter but not gone. Her neck also washed with the same formula with a wash cloth. She smiles as she looks in the mirror, "I'm getting better. I'm gonna get better." she mutters to her reflection.
She walked back into her room and stood in the middle of her room and took a deep breath, she steadies her breathing and a pair of rings red-violet above and beneath her and another pair of electric violet and they move all around her surrounding her in the magic and within moments she came out of the magic ball of different shades of purple. Completely different from what happened from her previous appearance. Her hair is now absent of the ribbons, curlers and crystals and is now done up in a low ponytail with multiple braids interweaved her wild rose hair seemingly brighter than before, long sleeved pink-orange fluttering yet fitted shirt with orange-red ties around her waist, her collar and her arms, caramel spacious pants with a golden brown belt with liquid gold clasp at her waist and matching beads at the end, knee high thick cotton socks and dark brown boots with burnt orange soles and laces of dark brown and burnt orange, the aglets being dark brown. Her ears are pierced with orange diamond studs. She looked at her standing alone bedroom mirror and she looks at herself in the mirror, "you look radiant." The hybrid, Nierion compliments, "thank you." she answers, adding makeup and nail polish would be too much. Maybe next time, she thought as she looks at herself in the mirror and then walks out of her room. Nierion next to her.
Out in the forest, still pitch black as it's still incredibly early in the morning. An open meadow filled with pearl white elk with emerald hooves with eyes of different shades and colors of gold (depending on the elk), one stag in particular is the size of a medium sized house with golden antlers, hooves and designs upon their chest and a single streak of glittering gold upon the top of his back, the white? Bright stark white, it's striking nigh blinding. The eyes are that of platinum. The doe next to it is the same but the fur is white smoke with topaz and is just slightly smaller than the stag and the eyes are of silver. They are something to behold. They are practically glowing in the moonlight.
Out to the dark trees, two silhouettes are lying in wait. The hand and arm formations with two fingers at the forefront with the thumbs at the underside of the first two index fingers directly underneath the joints of said fingers while the ring fingers and pinkies are folded back and directly above the hands that are in the position of the archer is a dark amethyst energy arrow with an incredibly sharp head the same color as the rest of the arrow, "I'm ready." the male voice whispers, and the arrow is released, flying across the field and it hit the stag, directly in the heart and the amethyst arrow morphed into a bubble before any of the blood escaped the stag, the doe is about to flee only to be pounced by the hybrid no longer in it's small cute form but that of an actual monstrous beast. The large doe couldn't escape, the beast was too fast as the beast's partner is shooting at the doe with the same amethyst arrows that has taken down her partner with one strike and knows to get away before it could kill the doe if struck and the partner is incredibly precise in the aim as they take each shot. The arrow vanishes if it didn't hit it's target. The girl comes out and the orb where the dead stag is in, is now floating towards her but she's out of her hiding place, the herd of this stag has completely disperse as fast as they could, almost that of a blizzard. Leaving the young witch and her partner to corner the doe. The beast slays the doe when the doe made the mistake of dodging another arrow not seeing that the two had planned it, the moment the doe dodged the last arrow, the doe fell right to the mercy of the beast.
The doe's neck has been snapped as his jaws wrapped around of the majority of the neck and clamping down, killing the doe instantly. "Nice execution Nierion." The girl, Lilliana says as the hybrid drops the doe, but it doesn't hit the ground, the carcass floats into the air and is now in an ivory and eggshell, reversing the damage the hybrid has done to the doe. The blood upon the hybrid's lips isn't red, like any normal elk or deer, it's stone gray that seems to shine the brightest red. "Your aim is as true as always Lilliana," Nierion replies in kind as the two walk back through the forest. The girl has a satchel filled with containers and pouches...they intend to get what they need before The senior witch wakes at dawn.
Dawn approaches over the forest and through the trees, the moon's descent and the stars vanish one by one. The dark skies becoming brighter and brighter and changing color and becoming daylight, the forest becoming alive with light and life, although it's The Onyx Forest home to The Moonstone Lake, once a year, colors galore completely cover the forest in every hue, every shade, every version, from the brightest to darkest, pastel all the way to metallic. Every color of every kind paints every crevice of The Onyx Forest, it's also the one time in year that gemstones literally pop out of the ground like weeds and in abundance, even more than actual weeds. And any or all crystallized plants come into bloom and with that, animals that aren't from around here and the almost never seen creatures come here in droves. Hunting of both animals and plants (that isn't endangered) are abound.
The two large orbs that hold the elk are still there but soon enough is accompanied by orbs of different sizes and the hybrid is carrying multiple large game mainly boar. Her satchel that she carried with her, is almost overflowing with wild herbs, plants and berries. The pair smile as they walk back to The Eden House with their haul. The two can feel already the heat of the fire within warming the house.
They knew they were in for a long and difficult day.
