The world where I live is brutal. The leadership isn't pronounced by patriarchy like that of our twin planet, 'Earth'. We reside in a sphere with heirarchy. Where beggarly can become the supreme leader and the affluent can turn to rags in just one night. It is how it's obliged to be to say the least. In our world, we have 'Oracles'. Oracles are identical to what people on earth call 'spirit animals.' To face the supposedly 'cut-throat' rivalry, everyone gets their designated Oracle at the annual Oracle festival after they turn eighteen. Each designated Oracle represents the temperament and demeanor of a person. They reveal the darkest enigma of an individual. Some have to cage the Oracle while some flaunt it. Initially Oracles decided the leadership but now they are just an attribute.
Every sphere has the wicked and sinful individuals. Which in this sphere are 'The Tuas'. The noble family with blue blood.
My ancestry had always been as faithful as a dog to the Tua's to acquire the substantial position. Not a soul managed to acquire or tame their Oracle as vigorous and herculean as that of our supreme leader, Shon Tua.
I learnt at a young age. In the world of thorns, Only roses can bloom. You need to be piercing and beautiful with a sharp little mouth.
