W’ella Dron

turns out I do have another chapter so @Doctor here ya go

 

Chapter 1

On my 15th birthday, my older sister, Kyli, came to visit. And by “visit”, I mean hide from the authorities. My sister is a wanted criminal, much to the dismay of our parents. She’s a gray, an actual gray (in other words, she has gray eyes).

 

“W’ellaaaa!” my sister sang.

‘Oh no,’ I thought.

“Kyli-?”

“It’s meeee!”

Shit.

I run downstairs.

“Kyli?! What the hell are you doing here?!”

“It’s your birthday! I thought I would...come say hi! Plus...I brought preseeeents!” She points to multiple boxes on the floor. “And...I brought a dress!” She hands me a dark gray  strapless dress with ruffles. I frown.

“You don’t...like it-?”

“No! I just-“

“I can add sparkle! You love sparkle!”

‘Adding sparkle’ means adding electricity. It’s something grays say when something is boring and needs a little pizzazz. It doesn’t hurt anyone. Just makes things pretty.

“S-sure...”

My sister smiles sadly. I know I hurt her, but not directly. Her hands spark to life. Electricity buzzes in the air. Suddenly, the dull dress in front of me lights up, and small bolts of lightning dance around it. Sparkle, but powerful.
