GRAPEMO 2011 Week #2: TEASER THURSDAY

Thank you for the teasers, chickies! :)
 

FOR THE LOVE OF GODS

Hate to break this to you, but true love doesn’t exist. Lust, definitely, but not love. If it did, you wouldn’t need someone like me to help facilitate it.

That’d probably be a good thing.

“Stupid freakin’ mortals,” I mutter, tripping backwards into the restroom as a whole herd of them stampede down the hall. That’s the one thing I’ve managed to learn in between Chemistry (of the non-lovey variety) and…um…I’m not sure what my others classes have been so far. I was too busy trying not to drool to notice.

Not that I needed to be banished to Earth to know that mortals are freakin’ stupid. That has been blatant since Pandora. My own mother even ditched her humanity to embrace godliness, although that had more to do with Dad than anything else. I still don’t get why the two of them are punishing me like this. If my parents weren’t so horny (or in love, whatever), then I never would have gotten away with some of the pairings I’d chosen to create. 


 PHOENIX RISING

More people bustle into the streets. Tall, short, all held their heads high, each with a purpose, duty. No one stops and chat. Their feet stomp to a collective beat on the walkways.

I stand still, watching. There’s a beauty to this. A beauty I usually feel a part of. Belonging. Togetherness. But sadly, right now though I feel like a stranger, not blending in. I curse Xochil under my breath for giving a reason to doubt the purpose of our community.

I continue on my way to classes when one girl up ahead catches my eye. Something about her stands out from the others. Her long braid bounces along with her as she hurries down the street.

My heart leaps. Did Xochil come to her senses after all?

I rush over, nearly knocking over a stand of fruit. The vendor gives me a dirty look.

I ignore him.

“Xochil!” I yell, running down the street. More than a few others stare at me in passing.

I ignored the stitch in my side, trying to catch up with her. Thoughts rumble through my mind about how much I’d tell her off for scaring me so much with her latest antic that this time went too far.

Closer. Only inches away.

I touch her on the shoulder. “Xochil, what is your problem…” The rest of my question fades when she turns toward me.
