Round 5 - Fall 2034 - PeragamaLast update/ Next update
Celeste Sky is 24
"Why can't you just stay? You know you like us better than those humans!" Totia said.
"Then stay! I mean you're living in this castle that Satitu calls a home with a male that loves you! What more could you ask for?" Totia asked.
"It's not that simple, Totia. Any way, since you're so concerned about my love life, how is yours exactly?"
"Non-existent, just the way I like it! I'm not ready to feel the emotions of some guy all the time. I like being on my own right now. Don't change the subject Celeste!"
"I'm not changing the subject," Celeste said.
Could she just stay?
"Oh that's true. You guys have to look through telescopes to see them right?" Totia asked.
"Yes, we do. And you know we do. Is this the best you two can do? Stars?" Celeste said laughing.
"Do not underestimate my want to see you stay. It would be very unwise," he said.
"And I'm on his side, so you're double teamed," Totia said laughing.
Celeste didn't want to even imagine what these two had planned for her.
"So we will be having some guests later today," Satitu said non-committally.
"Guests? What are you up to now, Satitu?"
"Me? Up to something? I would never," he said.
"Your sarcasm needs some work," she said laughing.
"Satitu, I don't think you realize how hard a decision this is for me."
"I do. I just hoped that I would be enough to make you change your mind," he said.
"That's not fair! You know I love you more than anything else."
"I guess we will see, will we not? Go, get dressed. Our guests will be here shortly," he said.
"I do not understand why you would want to go back there anyway! I spent a bit of time down there. They are such primitve creatures," Iranu said.
"They aren't all bad. Some of them are quite nice. And if the King is intent upon knocking up humans with alien spawn, then I could be there to help. I know how tough it is to grow up being different," Celeste said.
"I just really think I can make a difference. A friend of mine's husband was brought up here and they have a little boy now. He's going to have it even tougher than I did because he looks like Totia," she said.
"Oh, he's a Timtu. Trust me, he will be just fine. The humans should be the ones fearing him, not the other way around. Totia looks sweet to you I'm sure, but do not misunderstand. Her kind is capable of great rage," Iranu said.
"That's because we all know not to anger a Timtu. Humans would not be as wise," Satitu said.
"That's all the more reason for me to be there to help. The last thing we need is a war with the humans right? Isn't the whole purpose so that we may live among them?"
"She's quite stubborn, isn't she?" Iranu asked.
"Welcome to my world," Satitu said laughing.
"Have you seen their television programming? They think we're all green with irregularly shaped heads and huge black eyes. It's ridiculous," Satitu said.
"Come on guys. Aren't you being just a bit judgemental?" Celeste asked.
"They make fun of us and we're judgemental? Yes, Satitu, she is quite stubborn!" Takiptu said.
"It was our pleasure. I am sorry that we could not be of more help. We, too, would love for her to stay. But the decision is ultimately up to her," Iranu said.
"I know. I just can't imagine my life without her."
"So you still want to go back to Earth?" she asked.
"Oh, don't come ruining my high with this nonsense! You guys act like I'm happy to be leaving!" Celeste said.
"Fine. Go. Make me have to make another best friend. I tell you what, you're selfish Celeste Sky!"
"Hey, I thought you were on my side!" Totia said.
"Sorry, Totia. I am on her side. I always have been and always will be. That has a tendency to happen once you mate."
"Ugh, stop calling it that!" Celeste exclaimed.
Satitu and Totia just laughed and enjoyed the moment.
* Title comes from this song by Tonic
* I've decided what I'm going to do with Celeste. Of course, I'm not going to reveal that until later :). Celeste's last update and decision will be Spring 2035. There is no solution in this situation that is going to make everyone happy, so I'm just going to do what will make me happy lol
* I am curious though, what would you like to see happen?
