“Androgyny”

 

CHAPTER ONE

WHERE ARE WE?

Androgyny

 

 

SYDNEY IS PULLED INTO ANOTHER TIME AND PLACE, HER MODERN DAY CLOTHING IS NO LONGER. SHE IS WITHOUT CLOTHING AND SHE TOUCHES HER BODY AND UNDERSTAND THAT SHE IS GENDERLESS, WITHOUT BREAST, OR CURVES OF A WOMAN, NO ENTRANCE TO BEAR CHILDREN. SYDNEY ALSO NOTICE THAT SHE WAS BECOMING MORE TRANSLUCENT, SOME HOW SHE DID NOT FEAR WHAT WAS BECOMING OF HER BODY, BUT UNDERSTOOD THAT THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF HUMAN TRAITS. SHE WAS HOWEVER EXCITED THAT SHE HAD THE EMOTION OF EXCITEMENT, SHE WAS NOW A HYBRID.  THERE IS A LAKE NEAR, AND SYDNEY BEGINS WALKING RAPIDLY TOWARD THE LAKE TO SEE THE REFLECTION OF WHAT HER HANDS CAN FEEL. SYDNEY IS NOT SURPRISE, SOMEHOW SHE UNDERSTANDS WHAT HAS HAPPENED. SHE SHOULD FEEL PAIN FROM THE VERTEBREA CRACKING TO ALLOW FOR WINGS, BUT THERE IS NO PAIN. SYDNEY FEELS A SHEDDING OF AN OLD, TIRED LIFE AND SKIN. WITHOUT THOUGHT SHE SUBMERSES HERSELF INTO THE LAKE AND CAN SEE THE GUARDIANS OF THE GATE. SHE CAN BREATHE WITHOUT EFFORT UNDER WATER AND MOVES CLOSER TO THE SURFACE. USING HER SUPERNATURAL VOICE, SHE CALLS OUT TO THE OTHERS.

UPON HER RETURN FROM THE LAKE, SHE HEARS A MOANING THAT IS HAUNTING, SHE RECOGNIZES THE SOUND BUT IS UNCLEAR OF WHERE OR WHOM IT COMES FROM. Sydney SEES A CELESTRIAL ENTITY WAITING FOR HER AS SHE REEMERGES FROM THE WATER. FEAR IS NOT WHAT SHE FEELS, CLARITY AND UNDERSTANDING OF A TIME LONG AGO. THIS FACELESS GIANT WITHOUT EYES TO SEE, MOUTH TO SPEAK, EARS TO LISTEN, A NOSE TO BREATHE WAS NOW STANDING BEFORE HER, HE KNEW HER, AND SHE KNEW OF HIM. THE CENTUIRES AND THE CREATION OF THE SECOND WORLD ALLOWED HIM TO DEVELOP GRASS AS SKIN, HIS WINGS WERE OF BARK AND LACED WITH A RARE BLOOM NOT KNOWN TO HUMANS. HIS LEGS WERE MASSIVE OF THE DARKEST OF TREE BARK, HOWEVER HE HAD THE GIFT OR CURSE OF TELEPORTING, HIS LEGS WERE OF NO USE. HE WAS THE ONLY OF HIS KIND. TWO ANGELS THAT CREATED THIS CREATURE LONG AGO BEFORE THE DESTRUCTION OF THE FIRST WORLD. CREATED CENTURIES AGO WHEN TWO ANGELS TOUCHED AND CREATED THIS FACELESS CREATURE. HIS NAME…FIORE’. HE WAS THE CONCEPTION OF TWO ANGELS MORNINGSTAR AND ZANE.   SYDNEY COULD HEAR FIORE’ AND STOOD PARALYZED AS THIS PATHETIC CREATURE WAS OF HER CREATION, FORGOTTEN AND LOATHED BY BOTH MORNINGSTAR AND   ZANE. A REMEMBERANCE OF A GLOWING THAT WAS FELT AFTER BEING WITH MORNING STAR BEFORE HIS FALL FROM GRACE. SHE LOATHED THE BETRAYAL AND WAS CONFLICTED ABOUT THE BANISHMENT OF MORNINGSTAR. THE DELIVERY OF FIORE’ WAS HIDEOUS AND WITH GREAT SHAME.  HIS GRACE WANTED NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS CREATURE CREATED FROM HIS MOST PRIZED ANGELS. FIORE’ LIVED ALONE. WATCHING CENTURIES PASS, AND THE CREATION OFTHE HUMANS. HE WATCHED AS ZANE, KNOWN AS SYDNEY WAS ALSO TRANSFORMED INTO HUMAN AS WERE OTHER ANGELS. WITHOUT SPOKEN WORD, FIORE’ REACHED OUT AS AN ABANDON CHILD AND ASK SYDNEY FOR ANSWERS, THINGS HE COULD NOT UNDERTSAND. HE DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE EMOTION OF LONLINESS, OR SADNESS BUT HE WAS BOTH.
