Morticia's PL: 20,000 | Suppressed to: 666 | Casual form in Effect
This week had been arguably, one of the worst weeks Morticia had ever been through, or at least she'd chalk it up to be just that. Not a single day went by where she didn't find herself feeling dead beat tired, so much so that she found herself passing out and falling asleep during most of her university classes and study times. She was doing her best to stay back later and catch up on the work she was very behind on at this point, but it did little to dent the load she still had to do and again, she just found herself becoming dreary and falling asleep through most of it. These odd napping spots just made her sore all over even more then she already got from her villainous activities and drained her further.
Anyone close to her who also went to the uni would easily be able to pick up a few other things too, she wasn't even trying to talk to or hang out with anyone she was friends with, she didn't laugh at jokes or even crack a smile at this point. It wasn't just because of a lack of sleep and work either. Her clock to save her family in time before their curse was set permanent was still ticking, and the closer it drew to the end, the more stressed, tired and upset she became. All her attempts to save them and to fuel the gem to save them had been thwarted, every single time, and right now she had lost her grip on her hope to save them at all. Without her hope to bring them back, she had little reason left to keep pushing herself to move forward on anything, classes, villainy, eating, everyday life activities, everything wasn't the same and she saw no point in trying anymore.
Friday had come, eventually, and Morticia again found herself staying back late to try and catch up on work, she had to be one of the last if not the last student left in the building at this hour and by this point, she wasn't trying to catch up on her studies, instead she was just staring at her text books as the lines ran across the pages but never fully registered in her brain enough for her to read them. She was simply too tired to. So, she eventually decided there was no point staying and sitting there doing nothing, she could at least do that at home rather then at the uni since they needed to lock it up eventually before the night fully set in. Packing her bag and zipping it up before slinging it over one shoulder, Morticia would then slowly make her way out the university building and into the rather cold outside. It was actually a lot darker then she thought it was, maybe she had conked out for a bit on her books just before.
Stepping out and pacing her way down the steps to get to the front walkway, the hybrid would sigh, letting off a light puff of white since it was cold enough for such. Her eyes were so heavy and her entire face was pretty numb with no emotion to be found on it. She just had to get home and then she could collapse on her bed and try to not think about her lost family long enough to maybe get in some sleep. Getting home first, troubled thoughts preventing sleep later. Morticia would stretch out her bat-like black and pink wings and they almost groaned at the strain of doing such a motion after so long and in such a cold temperature like this, but she ignored that and pushed on, stretching them out to their full length before then attempting to take off.
She would just fly home, sounds easy enough right? Not quite. At first she got her feet to lift off for a few seconds before simply stumbling forwards, having to use her outstretched hands a few times to stop herself from completely falling face forward. Giving off a tired grumble with half closed eyes she gave one final attempt to get herself into the air, thankfully, this time worked, and she was soon sleepily souring her way towards home. Or at least she thought she was going towards where home was, it was hard to tell through her drowsy, half shut eyes. She didn't seem to realize not only just how sleepy she was, but how bad of an idea it was to fly while being that tired, she soon found out how bad it was though when she felt the rush of air against her face suddenly change pace and change directions. She wasn't moving forwards anymore, she was plummeting downwards instead. Usually in this case, her first reaction would be to flap her wings hysterically again to try and get herself to be flying again rather then falling, but this time she couldn't push herself to do it, not only did she hardly have the energy for it, but she didn't have it in her to try.
So she simply closed her eyes and waited for the pain that would come from her hitting the ground when she eventually reached it again.
