Oliver never cared or thought about it. In the end he only felt anything for Nicholas over anyone and even then he would not describe it as love for what had happened at the time.
As a human Oliver Najah was dark eyed with matching hair color and warm skinned. Often times he was far too thin or under weight from working too long in the factories for too little pay which bought too little food. Full lipped and sleepy eyed the boy never had a chance to escape such a life until Nicholas came along and kept most of his time keeping his head down and turning a blind eye to any violence or wrong that went around him. A simple way to survive. Only did he start smiling when his brightly colored interest came along but even then did that come rarely and not for very long. Perhaps it simply just felt strange to.
After the poor escape from the city in an attempt for a new life with Nicholas he woke up in the forest, finding hooves instead of feet and antlers instead of arms. No longer skin had he to cover himself but instead a dark chocolate brown coat with flashes of rich orange through it that seemed quite dull within the confines of shade but would flash a golden streak within the sunlight or perhaps a shimmer of silver within moonlight on clear nights.
No longer did he see through sleepy eyes but the mask of an owl, hiding away such sad features that were behind it which left behind his need to smile anymore. The roughly carved and tinted wood would suit him perfectly fine from now on. The frown upon its face rather suiting or so he thought.
Strong antlers were now his protection and his tools of working. Rarely would he ever use them for those days were behind him. Now within the cool, quiet forest he would search for places to keep his peace, find calm, and wait to see if is brightly colored beauty would return again. He was never one for interaction anyway. To simply watch from the side lines finding no opinion or want of an opinion from others.
Mixed feelings about him. Perhaps as time goes on he would know for sure how he felt and how he does now.
