Nymphea Vol I: Tale of Two Words
As Silvia made her way to the door she felt a little headed. Her vision went fuzzy for a second then it cleared up again. Just when she was about worry she heard a funny noise coming from her stomach.
“Well, I haven’t had anything since I got here. I must be hungry. ”
She continued out the door and brushed it off as if nothing happened. Silvia wandered down the hall until she saw another Nymphian standing near the exit with something in his hand. The way he stood from behind resembled Kye but this man looked much older. When she approached him she felt as if she had seen him before. The Nymphian turned around and he glared at Silvia intensely. Silvia realized she had seen this unwelcoming expression earlier that day. He was the same man who was arguing with Kye when she woke up. Silvia froze as the Nymphian began to talk.
“I can assume you couldn’t complete the task you were sent to do.”
Silvia had no clue what task this Nymphian spoke of but she could tell it was important.
The Nymphian sighed and spoke again while walking past her.
“I was hoping my daughter could be of some use to me. I guess I was wrong.”
Silvia looked at him confused and then she heard her stomach make a funny sound again.
The Nymphian stopped when he heard the noise. He turned around and held out what he had been holding in hand the entire time. In his hand was a fruit that appeared to be a freshly ripe plum.
“Take it, you haven’t eaten have you?”
Silvia kindly accepted the offer with great gratitude. She bites into the fruit and smiled.
The Nymphian turned back around with a cold expression.
“Do not mistake my role as your father for kindness.”
Once he felt he had said enough he left Silvia standing in the hallway. Silvia, who did not feel a bit intimidated by his words, giggled.
“Now I understand why Kye acted the way he did.”
