Wish Carriers

Check out the FB Author page! http://tinyurl.com/anrisarynFB

Liffon Foxglove, the youngest in the Foxglove line, travels to Greenbrook to become a Wish Carrier. Upon arriving, he finds his father, the famous Fens Foxglove, has gone missing on a very important mission. Where has he gone? It's up to the young hummingbird and his new friend Lissa Gentian to find out what's going on. What they find may even be a threat to the Carriers, let alone Greenbrook and perhaps all of Herald itself.

Please feel free to comment. I have divided the chapters up according to basic word count, so they are rather long. When I totally finish everything, it will probably look a bit nicer.


1. Prologue



            "Are you sure you want to do this, Fens?"

            The head of the Carriers glanced over at his Lieutenant, Miu as he donned his flight goggles.

            "Yes, Lieutenant, I am. This mission is too dangerous for anyone but me," he nodded.

            "Will you not even bring Quetzal?" She was close to begging. The General never went out alone, even on his most important missions. "The wishes will be too much for one bird to bear!"

            "I'm sure. You know as well as I children's wishes are the most valuable. If this mission succeeds, we'll have enough wish energy to keep Greenbrook running for the next twenty seasons."

            "I know, Fens, but something doesn't seem right about this," the female violet-crowned hummingbird replied. "It's great and all, but it seems too good to be true."

            Fens looked at her, his face set in confidence. "I appreciate your concern, but I promise I'll send you a swift scroll every hour of every day just so you can know I'm okay."

            Miu frowned at her old friend. They had been on the force since they both passed the exam back in the spring of the night-jar and raced to the highest ranking with the speed of a dragonfly, faster than even the founder of the Carriers, Lopi Lilly-Blossom, much to their rank-mates dismay. When Fens was named the new General of Carriers, and ignoring the looks of jealousy from the older rankers, the first thing he did was appoint his best friend, Miu Lotus, as his right hand feather and new Lieutenant.

            "Alright, fine, you smart beak," she conceded. "Don't forget, or I'll send the Crows after you," she added with a smirk.

            "Oh no!" he mocked. "Not those ghetto delinquents!"

            "Oh shove off, feather face," she growled. "Just don't do anything stupid."

            "I'm too experienced to fall for silly tricks," he answered with confidence.

            "I should hope so," Miu replied, handing his his scroll bag. "There's an extra bottle of nectar in there in case of an emergency. I'll catch up on the Junk wishes until you get back."

            "Don't worry your pretty little head," he smiled. And, with that, he set off through the launch window out into the rising sun.
