"Ashlyn, just sleep.," I said to the Silver Colored Sparrow who is gazing outside the window standing on the action figure Elisabeth Collins, which looked like a girl with eagle wings behind her back and crown of white eagle feathers on her head, she looks really valiant.
Tomorrow is an important day for me and Ashlyn, tomorrow is the day when I and Ashlyn will perform the bonding ceremony.
Ashlyn is the Mutated Grey Spark Sparrow breed, This breed of a sparrow usually Grey colored with light brown color on their wings and there is always fire spark on their wings, that is why their breed is known as Grey Spark Sparrow, they are also one of the most common Monster species in the world.
But Ashlyn is born Mutated, her whole body is Shiny Silver and she had a Silver colored fire which she can throw from her mouth at her will.
From the moment she was born, she was different from all her siblings, her nature completely different from Silver Spark Sparrows who are known for their mild temperament and friendliness.
She Is aggressive and indifferent, all her sibling become completely afraid even to play with her.
She was with me from the day she was born, she is five months old now and nearly a palm size chubby sparrow, all the Silver Spark Sparrows are about palm size when they are at Private stage, only if they evolve to the Specialist stage then sparrow's size would change.
Feeling bored or maybe sleepy, she flies and landed on my shoulder, then she walks into blanked and sleeps on my chest snuggling into the blanket, she never slept in on her own bed which is on the table.
I petted her shiny silver colored fur as she slept contently on my chest, She is cute chubby sparrow who acted arrogantly all day, never let anyone pet her except for family and had her own taste on the food.
'Chu chu..' i wake up by the by the sound of Ashlyn's beak touching my face, I opened me to see her tiny self standing in front of my face proudly with a haughty face.
''Good Morning to you to Ashlyn" I said as I woke up, I petted her lovingly, she started to rub her face against my hand gently.
Sometimes later as if knowing it is enough petting she moved away from my hand and went back to her arrogant self.
I freshen up, take bath and came back to my bedroom, Ashlyn still in her usual place by the window watching the lake from it.
I remove Ashlyn's brush and called her, "Ashlyn come?" I said waving brush toward her, seeing the brush, she readily comes to lap.
This is one of her favorite activities in the day, with the brush I massaged and comb her fur as she sighed in content in my lap.
Doing this for ten minutes, I kept the brush back into the table, Ashlyn did not linger long as she flew away towards the kitchen as it was time for her lunch, I also followed behind her for breakfast.
On the breakfast table, there already two people and two big Grey Spark Sparrows, three times the size of Ashlyn eating.
Ashlyn landed in front of my mother, 'Chu..chu' "You want your dinner, Ashlyn?" Mother asked Ashlyn nodded with her head.
Mother petted her lovingly, "Today is a special day, so I brought a special treat for you." Hearing word special treat Ashlyn's eyes sparkled.
Mom took out a small package from the kitchen counter and opened it in Ashlyn's bowl. Looking at small red meat pieces her eyes went round.
These meat pieces are the meat of Specialist stage monster, even her parents who are also at Lv.1 and Lv.2 Specialist stage could only get to eat once a month. This one packet of meat costs 50 Republic Credit.
Ashlyn starts to eat with relish, she even spits her ash fire on meat pieces to heat it according to her tastes before eating.
In five minutes she finished all her meat and laid on her stomach lazily as if she overate, her face looked like she ate more than she could digest, really she ate 3/4 of her size, that's the diet of her parents.
"Ha ha ha.." we all laugh seeing her like this, she didn't even glance at us as we laugh at her. It is her habit whenever she finds something tasty, she will overeat her fill and will lay on her stomach lazily, she will be fine in half an hour.
I ate the Honeyed pancakes, they are really tasty, the mother must bring honey of Specialist grade Monster, we rarely eat such delicacy as my parents neck deep in the loan.
Five years ago our old town destroyed in Monster horde all our properties got destroyed, our family barely avoided destruction, by the time horde ran past the town and we got out of safety bunker there is nothing that could be salvaged.
We moved to this town and have to take a loan for necessities and house. My parents worked town hospital as both of my parents are Lv. 1 Monster Doctors, they earn enough monthly to pay EMI of the loan and run the house frugally as possible.
Every one of those who is sixteen years has to bond with their monster, as one of the class toppers I got the offers from Government and various Organisation, they offered me Class 7 strain Monster but I rejected them for Ashlyn.
It seems completely idiotic choice to others and even my parents also objected it as there is a vast difference between Class 2 strain and Class 7 strain but I still chose Ashlyn, I got the feeling from the bottom of heart that Ashlyn is the best partner for me.
I saw her come out eggs with sticky silver colored fur, she completely different from her siblings, her eyes were curious and inquisitive, on the first site I fell in love with her.
She was quite slim when she was born but her special love for food made her little chubby, it was also due to her love for high-grade food that she broke through at lv.1 of Private stage in two and a half months after her birth.
We were quite shocked by her breakthrough, normally monsters who hadn't had a blood bond or had high-grade strain they didn't normally make a breakthrough.
My parents were so ecstatic, they thought Ashlyn inherited some strain of powerful Ancestor, they paid a high price to check it.
But all their hopes are for naught, Ashlyn didn't have any special strain of some powerful monster, she is just mutated from Silver Spark Sparrow and her talent also increased a little which is Low level nearly reaching medium level.
She could reach 3rd level of Specialist stage which is higher than common Grey Spark Sparrow's whose limits are a 2nd or 3rd level of Specialist stage.
I wouldn't part with Ashlyn even if I could have a chance to get Monster with Mythical strain.
I walk back to my room before leaving for Ceremony. I wear my holographic watch which I forgot to wear earlier.
Standing in front of the mirror I check myself in the mirror, I am wearing a white colored shirt and trousers, for a blood bond ceremony, most of the people wear white.
It is not a law to only wear white you can wear other color but you will feel awkward only one wearing different color in the sea of white.
I am average in looks, with average height, a face which neither handsome nor ugly with black hair, people say that the only noticeable thing about me my vibrant green eyes.
'flap flap' Ashlyn come flying and landed on my shoulder, it was a favorite spot. "Today is the big day for us Ashlyn," I said as I patted her silky smooth Silver colored fur.
My parents already waiting by the door, "Ready Micheal?" said mother, I nodded, two Silver Spark Sparrow suddenly disappeared inside my parents.
You can store your monster inside you, this is an ability you get after you bonded with your monster partner, you will also get the abilities your monster partner has, after bonding with the Ashlyn I might get her Silver fire ability.
That is called monster integration, you will integrate the abilities of your monster partner within yourself, your lifespan will also increase as you and your partner broke through different grades.
Your Grade is directly depended upon your monsters Grade as your monster broke through through grades, your grade will also advance with your monster.
