A lone orphan Doppelganger looks both ways before crossing the hall…the soft tapping of her little shoes echo loudly as the only source of sound. Scurrying to her little haven found at the Orphanage library she finds shelter in the soft lighting, and tranquil atmosphere.
As she wonders of what small tale to pass her time with in the myriad of books on the bookshelves, her concentration was blindsided by the chattering of other children as they were exiting the library.
“I finally saw Mr. Anon! He was so nice, and cool!” A passing auburn feathered Harpy in her pre-teen squealed.
“Aw~ lucky! I’ve been looking all over for him! I heard he’ll play with you lots if you find him!” A Kobold with hair, and fur of soft, almost white brown.
“Yeah! He taught me how to preen myself better with his fingers! *Ah~* I wish I had fingers~!” The Harpy swooned.
“I can’t wait! I can’t wait! I want to meet him! I always just catch his whiff, but he’s always gone!” The Kobold whined.
“Maybe one day we can find him together then! I’ll search through the skies, and you run around the ground and we shout whenever one of us finds him!” The Harpy declared.
“Great idea! Great idea! I can’t wait!” The Kobold cheered.
The two girls left soon after, leaving the young Doppelganger with mixed feelings.
“…I-I guess I’m the only one who’s not allowed then…” the Doppelganger murmured to herself.
Suddenly she didn’t feel like enjoying herself anymore…
