|finally spring time, doesn't look like it here in Canada but hey, a girl can dream XD|
Onyx's Origins Chapter 3I woke up the next morning still exhausted from crying. Sypris was sat up against the front of my cage with her back to me. It looked like she was asleep the way her head was lulled back. I worked my way over to her weakly pulling myself up beside her.Onyx's Origins Chapter 3 by phoenixphire12
“Sypris...” I whispered to her touching her shoulder.
She sat up abruptly turning to me. Her eyes immediately swelled with tears when she saw me. I felt my own face get hot with tears again as I looked at her. She slid her hands threw the bars of the cage and wrapped them around my mid-section. I did the same to her leaning my head against the bars of the cage. She leaned in towards me too, sticking her beak threw to me. I nuzzled her affectionately as we held onto each other crying.
I heard the doors to the lab whip open but Sypris didn’t pull away from me. I looked away from her sniffing back tears only to see Platinum’s face. But he looked different this morning, almost remorseful. He spotted me and Sypris hudd
Onyx's Origins Chapter 2Sometime after that Sypris left when her mentor called her back for class, but she promised that she’d be back. But, before then it was back to the everyday stuff for me and Mitch. Which brings us to another highlight in my life. Said with much sarcasm and possible a chuckle after, or a sigh, depending who’s telling the story.Onyx's Origins Chapter 2 by phoenixphire12
Sypris had said something about trying to combine Mitch and my DNA in order to produce an even better soldier. But, if you haven’t noticed we are both guys, and when they tried combining our DNA in a perti dish it produced a bird that spits acid that can melt threw metal. So someone had the brilliant idea that if they injected one of our DNA’s into the other, our bodies might slow down the rate at which they canceled each other out.
Since I am the only bird that has ever repeatedly reproduced the gene which coats my feathers in metal I was out of the picture for a direct injection. But Mitch was easily replaced, in fact he could have been
Onyx's Origins Chapter OneWell, it was like any other day. I woke up and wished I was dead. I got forced to eat food and almost ripped the birds arm off. I threw myself against the iron cage beating it until the bars bent and I tore myself apart.Onyx's Origins Chapter One by phoenixphire12
Before I go any further I should probably tell you what they did to me. The Armada is a battle ridden organization, so they are always looking for ways to improve their soldiers. So naturally what would look fiercer than metal coated birds? So, I was in line for this advancements, and it kind of worked, but at the same time not really.
See I’m a peacock, so I have long extravagant tail feathers that are my pride and joy. Now, they are a thick metallic blue, which looks ok with my dark blue feathers but they are just a pain to drag around. But the Armada got what they wanted, a living weapon that can think and act on its own. My DNA was genetically enhanced into other test subjects and some of them have turned out ok, but others have tu
Onyx's Origins prologue I’d wake up in the morning, looking out through the thick iron bars at the white world of sterilized lab equipment, the sharp shine of metal reflecting off the tables. The distant cries of others in rooms that looked identical off in the distance, down the strait halls that smell of cleaning chemicals and rubber gloves. I’d curl my knees up against my chest, as tight as they would come, and I would put my head down on my knees and close my eyes. I would think to myself, *I wish, I could be anywhere, anywhere else*. That’s when he came.Onyx's Origins prologue by phoenixphire12
My name is Onyx. I am an experimental bird in the Battle Bird Armada. For those of you who have no idea who the Armada is, they are the cruelest most ruthless group you will ever meet. They are a group of battle birds that live for one purpose, to find this fabled Babylon gardens and rejoice in its riches. And to take over the sky’s over the land we are forced to call home, Mobius.
