Another Girl

Lye Jackson

"I'm Lye. Lye Jackson" I finally introduce myself receiving an amused look from this Adelle before me. The second winged person I have met today. I mean how much coincidence could you get in this world. Having lived my whole life and never seen one yet not I had seen two in just a hour. 

Was a supernatural power at work? No, it was just coincidence. 

"Adelle Rounder. What are you doing standing in the woods?" she introduced herself ending with a question.

"I came here to gather my thoughts" I replied simply.

"Good thoughts or bad?" she said seeming to gain a mild interest in me. 

"Just thoughts" I told her as I gave off a soft chuckle.

"My guess is you are not going to elaborate?" She replied looking slightly sad before returning her expression to one of mild interest.

I couldn't help the crooked smile as her nosey nature amused me. "You're a very nosey person"

"Sorry, it appears to be in my nature, so does rudeness" she said the sad look reappearing before she quickly goes back to her cheerful nature from before. A big smile spread across her face which makes her look cute in a way. "So, you have wings!?"

"So I do"

"For how long?"

Her head tilted to the side just a bit as a quizzical look spread over her face. She was indeed very nosey. "A while" I said making the choice to tease her instead of giving her a straight answer. I watched her brow crease in irritation.

"Answer for an answer?" She asks a cheeky glint in her eyes. 

"What do you think I would like to know?"

"I don't know, I can't read minds."

I thought about it for a moment then came up with an idea. "How about you join me for coffee and I will answer your questions?"

"Deal." she said smiling brightly. We left the forest heading into town where we found a decent coffee shop. Once we had fetched are coffees we sat down allowing me to peer at her across the table. She was quite pretty and knowing she was like me was actually a bit comfy. I felt guilty though seeing as only a short while ago I had found the other winged person I had met quite beautiful.

Was it possible to like two people? I didn't know since it had not happened to me before. Of course I had had attractions but I had always kept detached cause of my difference but here with these two girls we weren't different. We were of the same kind. "So, what would you like to know?"

"How long have you had wings?" She was quick to ask me.

"They started growing when I was around nine" 

She seemed disappointed by my answer. "Now for your question"

"How old are you?"

She seemed confused by my type of question but replied anyway. "Seventeen."

"Hmm" I smiled. "Your turn"

"Your age?" she asked through a sip of her coffee.


"You look good for eighteen" she said and then her eyes widened as she realised what she had said. She put a hand over her mouth as her cheeks went red. "Your turn" she rushed out hiding behind another sip of her coffee.

"You think I look good?" 

Well this was going to be a very amusing conversation.

The End
