    Lately, Ebviony hadn't been feeling... normal. She was being followed a lot more by her "imaginary" friend. Imaginary in the sense that everyone else didn't see or acknowledge them despite them being very much real. It was something she quickly accepted over her years in life. If she was ever feeling lonely, there was a friend there for her.

    But now, things were different. Her friends were coming to her whether she wanted them to or not, and they were often disruptive, to say the least. They spoke to her in class, drowning out the sounds of her teacher, and would distract them when trying to make friends with the other children around.

    For once in a very long time, Ebviony desired quietness. So much so that she visited one of the places she visited the least: the library. Unfortunately, even that didn't stop her friends from following her around for a conversation.

    Selkiris’s days were often quite simple. The library was not a very active place, with people coming in and out of it calmly and quietly. Eventually Selkiris would help someone check out a book or look for something they needed but other than that not much ever happened.

    Well today was certainly not one of those days as Selkiris saw a familiar figure enter the library. With them seemed to be..butterflies? Suddenly knowledge of these butterflies flooded into Selkiris’s mind. The knowledge itself was concerning but something else...something deep inside him...made Selkiris even more worried.

    Selkiris would get up and move over to Ebvion, not wishing to possibly scare them with teleportation. “Mr. Ebvion, is everything alright? Last time I remember us meeting these..butterflies weren’t a thing.

    Ebviony was, to say the least, unhappy to see Selkiris intruding on her alone time. She was even more unhappy to have to deal with speaking to someone who hadn't yet learned the change in her voice.

    "Ms. Ebv—Um... Ebviony or Ebvion or fine. No Mr. or Ms necessary," she said, trying to ignore how different her voice was still. It sounded like it was coming from multiple places and that kids of all types were speaking at slightly different times. There was also the sound of butterfly wings and wind chimes mixed in there, but those didn't distract from what Ebviony was saying.

    "The butterflies... are normal. I can make them appear on my body and detach them." To demonstrate, Ebviony created a butterfly on her cheek, then it peeled off to fly around Selkiris.

    Selkiris nodded slightly. “Very well Ebviony.” Selkiris was obviously unphased by her change of voice. It was too be expected if someone had Eldritch blood that things like this would occur.

    Selkiris watched as Ebviony created and then peeled off a butterfly from her cheek. “If you say so...but what of this possession of the butterflies?” Selkiris was going to get directly to the problem. It was seeming like just anyone could possess the butterflies, which was certainly an issue. Selkiris certainly would never intrude and possess one of the butterflies, but he was sure others would just for ‘laughs’.

    Ebviony paused, discomfort clear on her fear. What was Selkiris talking about?

    "Possession? I don't... understand," she said slowly. Selkiris was talking like he knew more things about Ebviony than she did. That would have been nice... if she went to him first. "My butterflies are mine. I possess them." Is that what he meant? Who owned them?

    Selkiris sighed. Oh dear she didn’t know what he was talking about as all. “When you arrived I was suddenly filled with the knowledge of how to posses your butterflies, as in put myself into one, and what that could do. Quite some disturbing things if Im to be honest. If you weren’t aware it’s good you know now.” Selkiris was now even more worried for Ebviony. Eldritch beings could have taken control of the butterflies without her even knowing.

    Ebviony went quiet for several seconds. Not out of confusion (though she certainly was), but because her friends were warning her of danger. That Selkiris was dangerous and lying.

    She took a few steps back from the man, unsure of what to say. "Oh... What do you mean 'what that could do'?" she asked. She trusted her friends more than him, but that specific part sounded interesting. Disturbing? What was so disturbing about it?

    Selkiris sighed, it was obvious Ebviony didn’t trust him. I mean why should they? He was a robed stranger who just told them the butterflies that had could be possessed, everything about this was crazy. “Let’s see...one moment please.” Selkiris tried his best to sort through all the information in his mind. “Well for one I could show my real form to you. I can speak to you verbally or mentally. And I can see through your eyes.”Those were the three major points he saw. “It may not sound like much but if you were not knowledgeable of this some may have already possessed the butterflies. Speaking to you..trying to influence you. Do you...hear voices Ebviony? Do these butterflies speak to you?”

    Once again, Ebviony gave Selkiris a quiet, concerned look. "Yes... but I always hear things other people don't hear. My butterflies didn't always speak to me... but other butterflies and my invisible friends and dolls do."

    It was a difficult thing to explain. Ebviony knew that her existence was a unique case. She could interact with things most others couldn't. That's why it was difficult for her to accept Selkiris' words as anything worth worrying about.

    "Um... my butterflies have shown other forms... but they haven't done anything bad to me."

    Finally Selkiris’s suspicions were confirmed. It was good these eldritch hadn’t done anything bad to Ebviony yet however it didn’t mean that they wouldn’t. “Ebviony. While they have not done anything bad to you yet it doesn’t mean they will not do anything bad to you. I don’t doubt some of these eldritch have good intentions and are merely friends, but some may be using you. Manipulating you to reach their own goals. I merely wish to warn you of this Ebviony.”
