Roxy: Onions

"Roxy, Roxy? ROXY!" A voice starts me awake, my eyes wide my chest heaving heavily. The woman - Wilde - who claims she is my mother stands before me, her emerald eyes glinting in the dark.

"Good, you're awake. Now get up." She commands, I push myself up, my arms like jelly.

"What are you?" I ask, a little defiant.

"That doesn't matter right now." She says, waving her hand in the air.

"It does though, 'cause if you really are my mother like you claim, then I'm half of whatever you are." I say as if I'm talking to an infant.

She sighs, "I'll tell you later, we need to move. Now."

"Why?"

"Too dangerous."

"You're a clear person y'know," I say scarcastically. "Why is it too dangerous, surely everywhere's dangerous."

"Not as dangerous as staying here."

"Yeah, you never know what you'll get here, one moment you're going home and the next someone's trying to suffercate you and a snake claims to be your mother." I wave my hand, acting like it's no big deal.

She narrows her eyes at me, and hisses.

"Oh." Something occures to me, "Oh dear," I smirk.

"What?"

"How much do you know about me?"

"Not much, other than myself and William are your parents, meaning you'r half magical and half human," she chooses her words carefully, making sure I don't guess.

"Oh, okay then." I smile, tilting my head.

"Tell me, what?!" Her eyes glow.

I lean towards her, "Tell me where we're going, and I'll tell you what I am." I grin, she hisses. I bite back the hiss growing inside of me. Yay

The End
