    Default (story) Real

    Real - by pavana

    She didn't remember a childhood, family, friends.
    Her earliest memories were being found helpless as
    a babe, though a grown woman.

    Some Robgoblins in a traveling show found her.
    They assumed she must have been robbed, though
    no bruises showed on her skin.

    They taught her as if she were a child. She
    was told she was a human, they robgoblin. She
    listened to stories of long ago with robgoblin
    children at the feet of Fizzlesticks.

    He was an elderly Robgoblin, his memory was
    sometimes blurred, as was his vision. For
    all that, he taught many things, magic being
    but one of the many.

    She listened to his tales of how the Free Realms
    had been devastated by magic and lack of
    magic. The information on elementals seemed
    for a moment to reawaken something in her, then
    it drifted away like a snowflake.

    They let her help with the shows and the wagons.
    They treated her as one of their own. The music,
    the smell of food, laughter. But something was always
    distant in her, something untouched.

    She found everything new, everything was something
    wondrous. The traveling Robgoblin show was
    now to small to hold her thirst for knowledge.
    That, and she felt cold inside, not belonging.

    The robgoblins tried to be family. She was
    thankful, but didn't feel as one of them.

    She left to explore.

    Every tree, every mountain and hill begged to be
    climbed. Ever stream, river and lake to be swam in.

    She learned relationships, friends - but no memories
    of family ever emerged. Sometimes she felt she could
    hear voices in the winds, the flowing waters, dancing
    flames of hearth fires. The voices seemed almost
    understandable - but almost wasn't enough.

    At times she felt she wasn't real. That her body
    was like an outfit of clothing one puts on and
    takes off. That the life she lived would blow away,
    much like the seeds on some flowers were carried on the
    wind.

    It was in Blackspore she found a woman upset at a pet
    center.

    "They aren't real" the woman said of the
    glowing pets.

    One by one the glowing pets looked over visitors
    as if THEY would chose a person, not
    the other way around.

    "Help me find the Real pets that ran away," the
    center woman cried.

    The so called real pets were brought back, but
    it was the ghostly cats and dogs that were all
    adopted that day.

    A green glowing cat that sometimes became entirely
    invisible approached her. She kneeled down to pet
    him. He looked her in the eye when he became visible,
    glowing green. His eyes showed ? Love, that's it love.

    The ghostly kitty stood on his hind legs reaching up
    with one paw. Lightly resting it on the stranger woman's
    face he mewed a question.

    The woman felt something new. A tear in her eye.
    She remembered a robgoblin woman telling her tears
    were for many things, sorrow, joy, loss and love.
    Love, this was love she realized.

    The cat jumped into her arms. " I want to adopt him",
    she told the woman at the pet center.

    "He isn't real, he's a ghost." The pet center attendant
    exclaimed.

    The cat's weight was real, as was his soft furry body,
    and the steady purr as he wrapped his paws around her
    neck.

    "Does a ghost purr, does a ghost respond, eat, need to
    be bathed?"

    The pet center attendant didn't answer, instead
    offering what she claimed was a more substantial
    pet.

    She stroked her new furry friend. "No thank you, he's
    very real."

    If he had been a ghost before, love had given him life.
    Had given her new life and family as well.

    It was now all very real.
    When you share joy you double it.
    When you share sorrow you cut it in half.
