Eternal Curse: Battleground 10.2 (wip)

I slowly descended back on to my cot, but made a point not to sit too close to her. Then I told her about, how it seems, I came to be. I explained to her that though I had a mother, I never really had a chance to meet her, and that there was no way to know who exactly my father could be, even though Fred had a few guesses. I explained that I was not the offspring of the usual process of courting, or conception, or birth. I was something completely different.

Eternal Curse: Battleground 10.1 (wip)

“Do you mind if I ask how old you really are? I figured from the moment I saw you that you weren’t actually a child, but that you just happen to look like one.”

I sighed a bit and began to explain. “I wish it were that simple. The truth is I am about fifty years old. When Fred found me, I hadn’t been around that long. He used his memory capturing abilities to help me remember and know who I was and where I came from. It is because of my very unusual origins, and the nature of my curse, that I have to always be supervised.”
