Odyssey Chapter 1A young boy smiles and waves at her.He looks familiar.His short brown hair sticks up in all directions. His scuffed trainers are completely out of place next to his black ironed trousers and crisp white shirt.He looks so familiar.His beacons her forward before turning and wandering away.She tries to move forward but her feet are stuck. She raises a hand as if to grab the receding child. She tries to call out but her mouth stays shut.She murmurs desperately, twisting her lower body in an attempt to get free. Clawing at her bare feet as if it would make them move, tears begin falling down her face.'Wait,' She begs silently, looking up and after the boy, 'Please...'He turns around, "Come on!" He laughs, "It's not far now!"A name pops into her head. Zephyr.What does that mean?He approaches, "I thought you wanted to come?"The boy looks confused, "What's wrong? You don't need to walk like the rest of us; you never have before. Hurry up! You're going to miss it!"She tr
That Place of RestYou'll find me in that place of rest,The place in which I took the test.To try and figure out this world,A world in which things are never unfurled.With stones of passion I will lay,Until you find me on this day.Surrounded by flowers I will be,Flowers that are at peace with me.They find no fault in my whole being,And truly see without real seeing.They will not lie or cheat or scheme,But make this all seem like a dream.

Suddenly, with a dull flash from within me, I watched my skin melt into a brilliant navy and cream plumage, and the room seemed to enlarge as I shrank. I lifted my head, and cricked my neck slightly. Spreading my wings, I ruffled my feathers and admired the work. "Peregrine... Cool." I said I still can't believe that you can talk. "Hey, I may be a bird, but I'm still a human!"
Clip, Clip, ClipThe soft clip, clip, clip on the concrete slabs was a dead give-away. I swirled around in mid-step and hissed, "Neko! What on Earth are you doing here!?"He shrugged. Well... I think he shrugged. Sighing, I patted his head. "I told you, you can't come." His face drooped slightly. I hurried on, "Not that I don't want you to come, I do! But you can't..." He cocked his head in understanding. "Right," I said, "I'll be back later. For now," I hardened my voice a bit, "Get your furry lil' butt back to the house!" He grinned at me, as he turned and trotted back down the road. Shaking my head, I too turned and continued on my way. He sure is a crafty lil' thing... I thought to myself. Then, realizing what I'd just thought, I laughed. I turned to look over my shoulder, just in time to see a bushy, white-tipped tail flick arou
