well that was extremely easy. although the alien excrement was still present, i did not hesitate to casually stroll up to and enter the general vicinity of the goddess. when i realized that she was bestowing her gaze upon the pest, hey goddesses are known to be extremely kind, the wimp in me yelled, “run, get out of here, shoo shoo” while the rest kept trying to impose martial law and dictate all my actions.
i extended my right hand and touched the royal left elbow. i was willing to get scorched to death if that were the punishment for having the
tenacity audacity to lay mere mortal hands on divinity. but i live !
so, what does one say after being touched by an angel (please ignore who initiated the contact). a hello, a pledge of eternal allegiance and servitude, a bow, a formal introduction, a speech, a dance… what ? since i had already trespassed across boundaries and had made physical contact, i decided to go all the way and uttered the majestic first name with a question mark. there is always the risk of having one’s tongue ripped out as penance for a common man uttering a sacred noble name but why bother being cautious at this point
where there’s a will, there’s a way. after confirming the name, which i’ve already mistaken twice in the past, we had a charming little conversation about the upcoming test. we talked as we headed down the stairs and then i got an enthusiastic GOOD LUCK wish with a thumbs up. (cue memory of aya twirling around in a black skirt holding book and binder in hand and saying ‘wish us luck’). and then she was gone. happy happy joy joy
i haven’t been able to confirm the identity of the bothersome human who joins her after class. he had enough brain cells to realize that he should keep quiet during my audience with the goddess. if he hadn’t done so i would’ve taunted him severely.
