5. The Group

As we flew, I watched as the mountains turned into green valleys and then into a tall forest or jungle like area.

We are almost there. He said into my mind as we flew. His brown and white wings, resembling a hawk’s wing, touched my black wings. We came to a landing near the edge of the tall forest.

"Where are they all?" I asked him. He looked at me and put a finger to his lips quieting me.

"Shhh. Listen" He said in a whisper. I tuned my senses in and I heard tons of things. I could hear the chirps of birds and the callings of wild animals. Then I heard something that was different and a strange voice came into my mind. Welcome back you two. Don't be alarmed I'm a friend. I looked at Trevor in confusion, he just smiled and waited. Then, a girl looking about the same age as me landed in front of us. I knew she was a lot older than us by the way she looked and how she sounded. She had snow white hair and her eyes were a sky blue. Her skin was pale and she wore a loose shirt with jeans.

"It's been a long time Alex. How are you?" Trevor said to her. She walked over and hugged him.

"Yes it has been a long 50 years hasn't it? We are all doing well but we have missed both of you." She broke away from Trevor and hugged me and smiled. "Follow me, the rest are waiting to meet you." She expanded her grayish wings and gestured for us to follow her. We flew for about 20 minutes (about a 7 hour walk) till we got to what Trevor told me was the tree fort. It was amazing. In the middle was a large house which I guessed to be a lounge and meeting room. A platform came out to a break in the trees for landing and taking off and other platforms dotted the fort for other reasons I had yet to find out. There were 5 other houses which I expected to be for all of us. It was all so amazing and beautiful. As we landed a taller more powerful looking man came who i guessed to be Matt; approached us and embraced Alex in a hug.

"Welcome back you two. The two others should be coming shortly after they finish their work for the day." He laughed a little. "You two will be sharing a house and it's next to Zander's house and the library. Gabriel's house is next to ours and that’s about it. You can already guess that the meeting room and den are in the middle so I won’t explain that too much." He gestured towards all of the buildings. Suddenly, I could hear feet hitting the platform behind us and a loud voice yelled "Trevor!!" I turned around to see a guy with sandy colored hair, tan skin, and deep blue eyes running towards Trevor and hugged him.


"Hey Zander. Glad to see you after so long." Trevor smiled and laughed. Zander set down Trevor and smiled at me.

"Hey Hailee it's been a long time since I've seen you too!" He came and hugged me. I smiled back at him.

"Yeah I guess it has too bad I can't really remember all of it." I said laughing a little "Where is Gabriel? He the last person I haven't saw yet right?" He shrugged his shoulders

"No idea probably finishing up last like usual." He said laughing and then I saw him. He had white wings and black hair, his skin was tan and he had chocolate colored eyes. He wore a red shirt with a fire element pendant necklace and dark colored jeans. He cooly walked towards us and nodded at Trevor. He smiled at me and his eyes lit up.

"Hello Trevor." He said smiling and just put his hand on his shoulder for a brief moment before turning and smiling at me.

"Hey Hailee how have you been? It’s been forever hasn't it." He laughed and walked up to me. He hugged me and I was hesitating for a moment and I looked at Trevor. He nodded and I hugged Gabriel back.

"Well since everyone's here. Why don’t we all go and eat supper in the meeting room. Alex already has everything set up." Matt said as he turned to leave towards the big building in the middle of the fort. When we got inside I saw that a big oval table had tons of food of every variety on it. The walls where a mahogany wood and on one wall was a flat screen T.V. This room had a door on the side of it which I guessed lead to the den. My stomach growled, I remembered I haven't eaten anything since this morning. We all ate until we were stuffed and couldn’t eat another bite. By this time the sun was well set and night was falling. Trevor gestured for me to go by him. He took my hand into his and led me to the side of the landing platform. He sat down and let his legs fall off of the side and I did the same.

"Do you like it here?" He asked putting his arm around me.

"Yeah, I really do. Just seeing them was amazing but now we are here with them and its better than I thought it would be."


"I thought the same thing when I was first created too." He let out a small laugh and kissed my cheek. "I'm glad you enjoy it here Hailee." He looked down at the ground way below us. I looked up at the sky and watched the stars grow brighter as each second past.


"Look." Trevor said pointing at the ground below us. For anyone else it would have looked like just darkness but with my night vision I saw what he was pointing at. Down below was a group of two wolves; one black and the other a light brown color. They looked up at us taking in our existence as we did to them.


"It's surprising to see them so close to the tree again. Usually they stay off father away from here." Trevor said to me.


"Why is that surprising?" I asked making a face at him.


"Because right before I left they didn't come around here and I never figured out why but their back now." He said smiling. He looked up and let out a howl at them. They howled back at him, I laughed at him and I howled too. We sat there for a while just talking and laughing after the wolves ran off. Finally we went back to our new home to go to sleep.
