Drowning In My Sorrows Only To Find A LifesaverMature

I didn’t know how to feel the moment I noticed what I was becoming. My breath caught in my throat and I was feeling a bit nauseous and faint. I had the sudden urge to scream my head off and shatter the image of the girl staring back at me with horror in her eyes. Why is it that I'm always the victim of such strange and terrifying happenings?

I ran my hands deep into my hair, my fingers grabbing the roots of my silky strands and pulling at them in frustration. Tears stung at the corner of my eyes and I backed up until my body hit the wall. I crumpled down to the floor and sobbed heavily, two streams of a river running down my face.

Life is so unfair and meaningless. I wonder why I have to go through something so stupid in the first place when I know the journey is going to come to a dead end at one point.

I hugged my knees to my chest, my hair strewn across the rugged carpet, the tears forming small puddles of wet water on it. I wonder how my life would be now if I hadn't gotten supernatural powers, met the best friends I could ever ask for and fallen in love with a striking and beautiful boy both inside and out.

Another violent sob erupted in my chest and that's when I felt a soft purr beside me. I froze and looked up to find myself staring into the soft brown orbs of Frazzle. He let out another crow, broken and sorrowful. I moved closer to him and hugged him against my chest.

We were crying in union, his heart and mine both pierced with sorrow. It was mutual bond between us, he felt what I felt and somehow, knowing that someone was else knew what I was going through and would cry with me...this made me feel better.

Wiping away my tears, I looked into Frazzle's eyes and stroked his red soft feathers.

"Hey Frazz...thank you so much. You're the best."

His eyes sparkled and he reached up on his feet and pressed the tip of his bird nose against mine. I giggled when he lightly pecked it. Smiling, I got up and he followed me to my bed where we both sat and played with each other.

I was now no longer unhappy and under sorrow. I knew who could have been the only person who would have had the thought to send Frazzle and right now, I was missing her the most.

The End
