"Ogdennnnn~! I'm so bored! Why did we have to come to this stupid world anyway?" Sekai whinned, her feet kicking gently over the edge of the branch that she was sitting on.
Sekai was the type of girl who just perfered to get into trouble, it was her nature to cause pranks and spread merriment around... though that merriment often came at the expence of others. It was hard to imagine that someone the size of a Barbie doll could cause so much chaos and havoc with something as seemingly harmless as the pixie dust that was tied to her belt. Sekai's fair completion seemed to glow slightly in the moonlight as she turned her heart shaped face over her shoulder to her bother that was leaning against the tree. Her icy blue eyes scanned the rather distant look of Ogden as he seemed indifferent over the situation. To say that the siblings were as different as night and day would be an understatement. Even their hair color was vastly opposite, while Sekai had fiery red hair, Ogden had pitch black hair. He was the one that thought things through and kept a level head while Sekai was impusive and short tempered. She was also the more childish one, despite her mature look. How they managed to spend the last five hundred years together and not strangle each other was a mystery. There was very much sibling rivalry between the pair, though nothing about name calling and the odd pulled face by Sekai ever happened.
Ogden opened his eyes and looked over to his sister, his fierce brown eyes just looked at her with no real sense of amusment. He couldn't understand what she was whinning about, he for one, was greatful to get a little piece and quiet after such a busy day. Somethings the humans and their abilities to put so much effort into everything, and yet come out with little to show for it was impressive. Ogden, unlike Sekai, didn't really care to put himself in any sort of human affairs, it was below him to do such. Only the children swayed his choices at times, their innocents and purity could melt a heart as cold as his. Grown up, who needed the most out of magic, were the ones that deserved it the least. In his opinion, they were all corrupted in some way or another. Not worthy of his attentions nor his magical pixie dust. Odgen turned his head again and closed his eyes.
"Well, thats not really my problem, now is it? You were the one who wanted to come here after all. If your that bored, we could always just go back home."
Sekai gagged and over enthusiastically threw her arms into the air. "Oh my goodess! You just left the miserable realm and now you want to go back? Where's your sense of adventure and.. duty... and stuff? Your a fae for crying out loud, its your responsiblity to go out there and make some dreams come true. You know... like Tinkerbell!"
"....Tinkerbell was a made up character from a pits of a human mind. To lower myself to such a standered as to shake my butt and make children fly would be, quiet frankly, embarassing. You go ahead and have your fun. I'll be close behind to tell you that 'I told you so' when your plans backfire and get you into trouble. Have fun... I still think that magic is wasted on humans, they have no appreciation for it anymore and the children don't need it."
"Then I'll find someone who does and use it." Sekai replied, her right cheek puffing out at the nerve of her older brother. She never got into trouble. Except for the day that ended in 'y'. But those are the only times! "You just watch! I'll make someone really happy and then you'll be eating those words of yours."
"Well... don't say I didn't warn you."
Sekai turned up her nose at her brothers last statement, she reached into her pouch and pulled out a small sprinkling of sand and tossed it on her back. Two irredisent purple wings twisted and pulled themselves together on her back. With one final 'humph' and a toss of her hair over her shoulder, Sekai fluttered away into the night. Leaving a trail of silver sparkles behind her.
Jason sighed heavily and closed his breifcase with a slam. What a day, he earned his keep with the company this month by showing off his ruthless tactics of business, over two hundred workers were laid off today, their salaries now lining his pockets and the pockets of the high ranking officals of the company. A little unmentioned bribe to make sure that he was kept in his position. He had a fortune, though the problem with avarice was that you always wanted more. He hardly spent time with his wife anymore. He didn't feel the need to anymore, an her constant nagging and pleading to have a child was starting to drive the man insane with frusteration. He had no interest in children, they cried, they pooped and slept and in sixteen years they picked your pockets to get their new phones, the latest fashions or whatever. Jason worked hard for his money, and he wouldn't give something for nothing. HIs wife was somewhat of an acception, he did give her an allowance; she used to work but her earn was nickles compaired to his so they agreed to have her stay at home and tend that. She seemed happy with that, spare the wanting children bit. Jason was allergic to animals so getting her a cat or a dog was out of the question. She would just have to make do with the empty penthouse suite until retirement where they would live filthy rich till they died, and even then they would be remembered by their weight in gold. Jason took one last look out his highrise office window before turning around and grabbing his coat to head home.
Anabella waited for her husband, watching intently out of the windows for any sign of his black care in the twilight of the days end. Anabella was a very attractive woman, she wore her beauty inside and out. She was pale skinned and dark haired, she had full lips and beautiful emerald eyes that had an unfortunate lonliness to them. Clothed in her slik nightgown and housecoat, she had long given up trying to eat dinner with her husband Jason. He was a good man, but he failed to see the important things in life, and with the contract she signed, there was no devorce, really. If she did, pretty well everything that she worked so hard to get would go to him anyway. Misery was perfered over an empty freedom. Besides, she still very much loved him... she just wished that she could do something more to make him happy. She so badly wanted a child, but Jason saw only the negative of having something so precious come into this world. It was a pitty really. But it took two and she didn't want to risk loosing everything, especially with a child to care for. Anabella hugged her arms in a relaxed manner and closed her eyes, she wished that she could see the stars in the city like she use to when she lived in a more rural area, she didn't miss the country, but the stars were one thing that she wished that she could have here. She remembered how she used to wish on them when she was younger. She gave a sad giggle at that though, if only she were more nieve she would try wishing on those same stars that she could have a child, and help Jason find that thing that made him happy and whole. Oh well, with supper in the fridge and the hour getting late, Anabella decided that it was best to get to bed. Maybe tomorrow she would have a better day.
Anabella's wish may have been lost on the stars, but it was certainly not lost to fate itself.
Sekai poked her head out from around the corner just as Anabella was walking away from the balcony and to the bedroom. She felt sorry for the woman, she could feel the purity of those wishes that where made and knew that she found that good deed for the day. Sekai was violently startled from her thoughts when she felt a firm, heavy hand come on her shoulder. Poor Sekai let out a yelp and rocketed into the air some distance. Hanging from the underside of the rain gutter, she looked down at Ogden who had his usual stoic expression on and his hand in his pocket, the other one was raised in a shallow greeting.
"Pixie Queen's Corset, Ogden, you scared the holy hell out of me! What are you doing here? I thought that humans were below your help?"
"Relax, I'm just here to make sure that you don't get into too much trouble, I also thought that you might want someone to open the dream-world for you. After all... if your going to try and find out what makes someone truely happy, then you need to find that gold chest of wonders, don't you?"
Sekai's cheeks puffed out, she knew that he was right, and that she didn't have the ability to cast that sort of magic. "Alright Mr. Pessimist... what do you want for it?"
Ogden shrugged his shoulder. "We'll call it a boon for now, I'm sure that I can think of something later."
Sekai raised her eyebrows in a rather unamused look. "I'm sure you will. Now... help me get down! We have some work to do!"
