This is some of my older work so it may not be the best
I opened up my eyes to a new dawn like no other Sunrise came as a golden tunnel to a world of forever-light as i slipped out of my sheets of silk i felt a cool breeze and sorrow washing over me after all im still stuck in the clock tower my mother trapped me in it felt like eons ago and in my case it kinda was Ive been trapped here since i was 3 my “mother” would deliver food to the tower my mother was actually my step mother i never really considered her my mother she always said I was destined to keep time for as long as i live although she claims she’s been getting warnings from spirits that i would be the reason reality ends i didn’t believe her of course i just had to merely pretend but i have had visions of the world slowly shattering before my eyes as i played Vivaldi’s experience i had a solemn look on my face and tears were running down my cheeks but its just a vision not a reality id have to live in the future… right? I slowly ascended the steps my head bowed i started the gears and i watched as the cogs spun into motion i kinda enjoy their metallic smell i listened to their distinct tick… tick… tick and i heard a knock on the door it must be mother i swung down the steps and waited at the door hoping she maybe brought my favorite rice instead of that bland other kind but she never came she must’ve been busy i loved when she shared the occasional quote from the dark ages my favorite was “Nev'r receiveth thy desires up 'r thee shall nev'r prosp'r” i ran my fingers through my dark brittle hair if only i had company if only if only i felt tired in a way tired of being stuck in this wretched tower full of nothing but dust and sorrow i headed back to my bed the sheets greeted me with warm arms and i slowly drifted into the dreamworld that I’ve always known. I woke up to the sky being shades of indigo and mauve i slept through the whole day i went downstairs to check if mother had left dinner weirdly enough the lock seemed… weaker sure enough she hadn’t slid the deadbolt in all the way I could escape i ran upstairs and grabbed as much cash as i could carry my old rotary phone although it might as well be useless and my real mothers locket it meant the world and beyond to me i stuffed it all in my pale brown messenger bag and i kicked at the door until the weak locks broke out i cant believe it i can be… free
Chapter 2 : the outside
I breathed in the cool air it felt almost whimsical like it wasn’t real.. but it was i felt warm tears of joy graze my face. I have never seen outside since i was like 2. My real mother always enjoyed the outdoors. I never felt this way before… was it happiness? Was it love? I don’t know what I’m feeling i just haven’t felt this since my real mother was alive. Was i dreaming or dying. Was my life flashing before my eyes. Everything was a mystery.well felt for eternity. was my long awaited break from sorrow finally here? I closed my eyes and let the rain absorb me into its tranquil state i felt like the chains that bound me to the tower had finally broke i strolled through the rain i didn’t care if i had no umbrella i just breathed in the misty air and carried on i let the tension in my shoulders ease i could finally live my life to the fullest and i could let the melancholy feelings seep out of my bones then i saw it a beautiful sap green grand piano in the store window and there was a sign next to it “win this piano in tonight’s raffle” i felt conflict mother had always forbidden me from playing piano she said she saw me playing a piano in her visions making her think that me playing will make our world cave in but i decided that ancient Eldritch women couldn’t stop me now im 16 i can make my own decisions im the mighty calypso so i marched into the store it smelled of wood and daydreams i walked up to the counter and grabbed the raffle ticket the raffle was going to be in an hour an a half i quickly filled out my ticket “calypso wanderer” I hadn’t wrote my full name since i was 5 i quickly made my way to the stage of the raffle i helped myself to some free scones and biscuits from woodwarts witchy delights and i waited..
Chapter 3 : your hope has payed off
“Hello everybody welcome to the annual musical raffle” a watched as they raffled off everything from violas to oboes to cellos and finally the moment came they were picking the number for the grand prize that I was yearning for that grand piano i listened closely as he called out the sequence of numbers one by one “6”… “1”…. “0” my mind was racing a million miles a minute those were my first 3 numbers “7”…”7”…”2” my mind was jumping fr joy so far its exactly like my sequence only 2 more numbers to go will i win or not “7” omg one more number and this piano could be mine “this last ones harder to see it’s an” my mid was racing could it be an 8 I could have that piano if it was “it’s an 8 folks” i felt excitement blooming out of me i came up and claimed my prize i watched as the 2 men brought the piano into the clock tower i had it put on the observational area of the clock tower meaning i could play near the gears
Chapter 4 : nothing lasts forever
I sat down and started to play fur Elise i had watched so many video lessons on piano that i knew right away how to play i knew what song i had to play the song that can bring tears to my eyes… experience it had this unexplainable feeling attached to it it felt beautiful but melancholy at the same time just as i started to play it “mother” broke in “stop you’re making a mistake” she looked at me “calypso if you play that you will bring forth the end of the world i never told you this but you have powers that’s why i Locked you in here it was for your own good you can bring death to peoples doorstep you’re the son of nyx” my jaw dropped “mother im sorry but piano is my passion and i wont give it up” ah thats my most selfish move i started playing the cogs kept turning i finally realized her visions were true i felt the tears coming down while the world crumbled around me i played my final song i guess this is the end of my tragic tale i watched as mother faded away it felt like the world was becoming less and less real i was born into chaos and i was wiling to end In chaos i whispered my last words before me and my reality faded to nothingness.
