Philip was a very busy bird.

No, King Philip, Slayer of Worms, was very busy and important bird. Arguably the most busy and important bird in all of England. ...At least according to Winter Wisp anyway. He was a very lucky bird as well, having managed to secure a happy nesting spot in the home of Sunny Nwazue, a witch he was very fond of, who had lots of shiny things to play with, and delicious foods. Winter had delicious foods as well, and a very ample tree, but pixies could be so loud sometimes. There was Fin the fae also, a fae the bird was happy to torment and bully in its free time- But most of the time if Philip was home, home was with Sunny.

Today he wasn't home though. He had a whole big city to enjoy after all, and while worms were fine and dandy, today he wanted chips. All the chips. Not out of a bin like some scraggy rook or seagull though. No, he was having chips off a plate.

Feeling bold, the plump budgie swooped down off the branch where he was currently perched and onto the table bellow. He perched right on the edge of the table, folded his wings- And then offered up his best 'I'm Cute' pose as he began to chirp a little song. And no, he wasn't begging or doing tricks! He was being charming, there was a difference!

(OTA. It's a weird EP! It's Philip! He's a birb friend of Winter and Sunny's! He can't talk, and he isn't magic. ...Probably. Maybe. No one's really sure about that. Don't worry though, you don't have to do a whole thread with Philip, eventually either Winter or Fin will spot him and join in, just let me know who you'd rather have via slack or email. <3)

Sunny was about to take a bite out of her lunch and paused with the sandwich halfway to her mouth when she heard the flutter of wings. It was too small to be a pigeon, but she was momentarily wary because pigeons were assholes.

No, this was a more welcome surprise and she grinned at the little bird at the table. "Hello, you naughty little thing," she said affectionately.

Sunny let him do this in a way that she wouldn't let most of her friends do, laughing rather than scowling. The little imitation of her phone delighted her. "Sha," she said, shaking her head. "You would think I didn't feed you. Where do you put it all, hm?"

Sunny listened attentively as she ate her sandwich, even though she didn't understand any of it. She never knew what he was trying to tell her, or if he was trying to say anything at all. But it amused her--even heartened her a little--to think that the little creature confided in her.

She confided in him, too, sometimes. Those days after Valentine's Day when she'd been heartbroken and desperately lonely, there had been no one but Philip she could confide in. At first.

"Sounds like you've been very busy," she said.

Sunny giggled and turned her head to give him a careful little kiss in return. "Winter says you're building a nest. Has the king taken a queen, hm?"

"Ah, I see," Sunny said with play solemnity. "You love me for the food I give you." She smiled, knowing herself defeated all the same. "I suppose that's all right."

But she was going to eat at least one of her own fries, so she took one before Philip could.

Whether or not it was, Sunny would take it. "I love you," she said softly in Igbo.

When Winter came up bickering, though, she had to stifle a giggle. She didn't know how Winter could understand a thing Philip said, but it always amused her to watch them. She turned her head a bit to look at Philip as he retreated up her arm. "You don't say nasty things about my mama, do you?"

At the same time, her hand reached out and lightly smacked Winter's hand away from her lunch.

"Oh, so then you might be cussing me out right now, is that it?" Sunny asked, arching an eyebrow. "That's okay. I forgive you."

Then she turned her gaze to the pixie. "Hey, Winter."

"You're not bothering me," Sunny assured him. Even now that he was grown and taller than he was, it was impossible not to be a little soft on Winter. If not as soft as she was on Philip, for all that he could be calling her a motherfucker right now for all she knew. "You rarely do."

"You don't bother me," she said again, firmly enough to indicate that she meant it but not so much as to argue. She smiled. "You're just not eating my lunch."

"There's no stopping him, though," Sunny said wryly before she poked Philip in the tummy with a fingertip. "I think I should balance this out with some fruit later."

"Philip needs more than potatoes and pizza in his diet," Sunny laughed, pulling her finger away to see if the bird would chase it.

"Oh, not even sweets for you?" Sunny teased. Her eyes were on Winter, though her finger went in for another soft jab at Philip's tummy before darting away again.

Sunny gasped at that, even as she continued to pester the bird. "When did that happen?" She asked it half in play, not entirely noticing the tone he was using.

akatawitch: (Thoughtful)
From: [personal profile] akatawitch
"Awww, I apologize and submit to your majesty's judgment," Sunny cooed, letting the bird attack her finger before she--instead of jabbing him again--stroked his tummy with her knuckle.

But even distracted, Sunny knew that a pixie that suddenly wasn't eating sugar was a weird thing. "Everything all right?"
