Daisy: In and Out

I sat on the sofa, trying to push The Voice's voice to the back of my head. Shutupshutupshutup! I think overriding it's annoying plastic tone. "Breath Daisy, just breath," I mutter to myself. In with calmness and love out with hate, and The Voice.


In and out.

Oi! I'm talking to you little missie.

And Out!

Silence. Thank heavens for that! I rejoyce in my thoughts.

Floor boards creek around me, "Daisy," Tallulah's voice makes me turn to her. "Can I ask you something?"

I smile, "Sure." I see her eyes go back in time, as if she was remembering something.

"Wh-What is this place? Who are we? I think - I think I have sinned. There's an evil part of me and I need help." Her pleading tone, made my eyes open slightly.

"Well..." I start, inviting Tallulah to the settee, she sits down, eyes wide. "This is Arrow's home, he's gone hunting at the moment," I laugh slightly. "He thinks the house is getting quite crowded," I smile at her, she smiles back slightly. "We are the ones that... that aren't..."

"Normal? Human? Good?" She guesses? "We're the evil ones," tears well in the corners of her eyes.

"Evil? God no, we're not evil! Anything can be evil depending on what you do. Nothing is completely good nor evil. Nothing is normal, everything even twins are different in some way."

"What about the evil part of me?"

"Evil part? You mean the demon part of you? Well, um. Try thinking that everyone has the demon part in them. That's what makes all - humans and non-humans alike - cermit herendous deeds. Thousands of humans have killed people like us in the past few years."

"Hmm." She says thoughtfully.

"What makes you think you're evil anyway?"

"I-I-" she stammers.

"It's ok, you don't have to explain anything to me if you don't want to..." I smile again.

The End
