Chapter 10


Still hazy after laying the egg, I barely registered Finian trying to comfort me and admire the egg at the same time. He was such a curious human… Recovering, I faintly heard the approaching harpy’s snarl of rage. Leaping at Finian, I blocked the way.


Bad idea.


Fabian’s claws sunk deep into my back, wrapping around my ribs. As Fabian ran, he knocked the egg, which only seemed to fuel Fabian’s wrath.


“You broke the rules. Humans are never to see!” he snarled as he hopped off me.


“Traditions die, ass-hole...” I managed to say as I sat up somewhat.


“And so will you.” I don’t think me laughing at his threat was the best response.


“I’m sick of you constantly following me...Watching me like the hawk you’re not...” I hissed, getting onto my knees. “You’re overbearing, and I just can’t take it anymore!” I leapt at him, using my weight to throw him against the shattered window frame.


“Stop following me...stop watching me...you’ve been doing it for YEARS and it’s pathetic!” I slammed him down, seething.


“Leave me alone!” I snarled, pushing him down onto the glass.


I didn’t expect him to grab me and throw me out the window. Falling, I watched him holding Finian out the window once he freed himself. The full moon watched like an eye as I landed hard, breaking several bones.


Fabian dropped Finian.
