I knew I'd have
to choose soon. After wandering around the maze of open aired stalls that was
the FelisFire Market all day, I was tired. And I still hadn't found the feli I
wanted. And most of the shops where closing soon. Great, just perfect.
The day had started
out nicely. It had been sunny, and I had been in a good mood. First I checked
all the famous and large stalls, with hundreds of brushed and combed feli, but
I had found none that I clicked with. Then I checked the smaller stores, the
honest people with a few feli. I had found a few that I had liked, but I had
known that none where the one I was looking for. So now I was in the dirtiest
part of the market, with stalls half in the shadows, and filthy feli in them.
Suddenly, I bumped into a small man.
The man broke into a smile as I stammered
out an apology. "You look for feli to buy, yes?" He said. When I
nodded, he replied, “Come, I show you good feli." and lead me inside a
gray, misshapen tent.
smell was almost unbearable. Only five feli were inside the small tent, but it
still felt crowded. Even though there was no electric lights inside the tent,
an Igneo light it up with the flames on its back. He was just as dirty as the
other four, but I was instantly drawn to him. Behind me, i heard the man."
Yes, male, baby. Good fit you find. You take him home." I handed him the
amount of en that was on the little tag by the male's Stall, and took off with
my new companion.
Before I let
him into my nest though, he was getting a shower. As I scrubbed the filth off
of him, I could see the patterns on him. The base was a black, but he had white
and gold marking that made him look like an angel. An angel, hmm. That's when I
decided the name of my protector and friend, Archangel Michael.
