A Moment’s Reflection ~ Nuxy & Chyfrin

She should be relaxed and quiet of soul

Their last mission had been fraught with nimble foe
and dangerous gambits. . . most satisfying
Many of her folk sang the song of Nuxy and her human

And yet . . . despite all their accomplishments
Here on the water world of ChenStrae
Under a sky the color of poetry
Looking across a Sea untroubled by Winds . . .
Chyfrin was of an unquiet spirit
And she often felt it. . .
In his movements and manners
So abrupt. . .

And she felt a strange . . . how to say?
There was something that gnawed her bones
In the dark of night
Gnawed her bones . . .
and defied her attempts to quiet it

And it grew worse whenever she saw him in the mornings
Whenever his eyes caught the light
Whenever his rich scent filled her mind . . .
There was . . . a craving?
There was a something . . .
And she didn’t like it

She didn’t like the way she wanted his verses
The way she looked forward to his return
whenever he was absent
The way his hand felt behind her ear . . .
She especially did not like that

And he was acting . . . strange
His eyes often watched her
even when she was invisible
His heartbeat would spike when first he saw her
His parna would fluctuate with no apparent cause . . .
And he was . . .
Well he was often cranky . . .
And the way he was starting to smell . . . delicious
She did not like that

And she would often lose her train of thought
Living in a nonlinear fashion
Recounting their exploits in the past
And her outrageous speculations of their future
She especially did not like that
