I'm not sure where I get my love of animals from. In fact, I'm not sure where I got anything from. All I know is that it's always been there. My earliest memory is of myself running into trafic to save a kitten from being run over. I was three and we were going to the store to buy more clothes. Needless to say I do all my shopping online now.
I don't like people very much. I just can't relate to them. The only things I feel connected to are animals. Now when I say connected, I mean I can really feel what animals feel. As long as I'm close enough to an animal I can hear it's thoughts and feel what it feels. That's why I couldn't let that cat be run over.
I was yelled at for over an hour after that incident, and I didn't say one word. I've never spoken a word to anyone. People think I'm mute; that I don't understand. I understand better than anyone though. I know that I don't belong here, and so does everyone else. It's pretty obvious, I stick out like a sore thumb! All the other kids with their "normal" hair and "normal" eyes. Then there's me with my long grey hair and light purple eyes.
The only thing that's really mine is a necklace that I'm told was on me when I was found. They were never able to take it off, and I haven't been able to either. Not that I want to, it's beautiful. It's a small gold medallion with two animal heads in the middle with many swirls around them among other symbols. I've always thought it strange that it doesn't come off, but I've come to accept it., like I've come to accept all he things that make me different. Now it's just a part of me, and I couldn't imagine being without it.
Oh and possibly the most important things about me (not particularly in this order). My name is Asima, I turn sixteen tomorrow, and I'm an orphan.
I know I should be writing new chapters for my other stories! Sorry! Someone tell my brain to stop having new ideas!
The pic on the side is of her necklace! It's actually my necklace that I got at a festival!
