Edith Carroll


When the girl began to reach for her for balance, Edith felt a ping of disappointment. Not for the girl, but at herself. This was just another side-affect of her 'condition'. It almost got her to thinking... This is why I'm here. To accept it, I bet. That's the only reason I can imagine they'd take in a lost cause like me... Someone who's not even alive any longer.

"Not to seem rude, but... what are you?" The question broke her train of thought - and Edith welcomed it. Deranged. Neurotic. A murderer. You? Edith laughed at the voice inside of her head, looking down at the girl. She reached up a hand to herself, brushing her ghostly hair over her shoulder as she flashed a grin.

"Well, once upon a time, I was an opera singer named Edith Carroll. I was quite famous in Europe, more so than the western hemisphere." But that's not what you asked... And Edith knew it. Acceptance? Right. "But now, I'm nothing but a memory, I guess. A ghost of what I once was. My brother and I, we're sirens of the sea. That's why my voice may seem a bit like sweet honey to you, without my trying. My brother has the effects heightened, being alive. That's.. That's why he doesn't bother to talk to anyone at all. He doesn't feel like it's necessary to embrace what he is. He wants to be normal. Well, he'll at least look it."

Had she given her too much information? Was that even what she wanted to hear? Edith swallowed, breezing downward to sit at the table with the girl. "You know, everyone's relocated to the rec room, now. You should go and meet them. I can take you?" Just as quickly as she had sat down, she sprung up, floating in the air with a warm smile.
