Sing Little Birdy Sing.

Running, Crashing through the greedy branches as they caressed my skin.

Chased, Pursued, Caught.

My name is Nightingale, like the bird

My sister's name is Mockingbird.

My brother is Jay, his twin is Cardinal.

My mother loved birds, but she's dead, and we're next.

We separated Jay with me, and Cardinal with Mockingbird.

We didn't know what our mother had been working on, but it had gotten her killed. Our father lone gone could not help us.

6. Changing, Dreaming, Training

I wanted to test out my speculation about us being able to change into birds under immediate danger. So one evening I snuck out of the motel room, via the window and ran in the direction I had in my dream. I ended up at a tall rock formation, and decided to climb, if I fell hopefully I would turn into a Nightingale, if I didn't I would be dead before I hit the ground. Twenty feet up my arms started to get tired, and heavy. I was becoming more and more thirsty just like in the dream. I let go of the wall and fell backwards...I felt like I was well falling and I twisted over and just like in the dream I turned into a bird. I was a small bird, but extremely fast; I let out a chirp and a beautiful melody escaped my beak. It sounded a lot like one of my songs I wrote in my Song Book. 

I looked down at the ground and found a good spot to land. I did so, and when my feet hit the ground I was human again. I walked what felt like miles to get back to the motel, I needed to tell my siblings. I heard twigs snapping and I turned around and I was faced with Dru. How had he found me?

"Dru what are you doing here? Had you not listened, when I told you we couldn't be in contact with one another?"

"Look I'm sorry, but Rue and I we miss you guys."

"Dru honey, I miss you to. A lot, and not a day goes by when I don't think of you. Same goes for Mock but for Rue." More twigs snapped and Rue came out of the darkness.

"Rue? C'mon really you guys?"

"Night come on let us travel with you. We're both in Foster Care, no one will notice."

"No one but the frickin' state!" I half yelled half whispered.

"Calm down Night, we faked our deaths. "

"You faked your deaths? THAT's supposed to make me feel better?"

"Night come on we came all this way."

"Alright fine, follow me." Dru grabbed her hand, and the feeling of something so familiar relaxed her, for a moment. The realization that they were all in this together now made her want to cry. How was she supposed to tell Dru that she wasn't all human? But part bird as well. "Dru, Rue, I need to tell you something, and its going to sound strange, but when I fall from a great height or I'm in extreme danger, I turn into a bird."

"What? Are you trying to scare us away?"

"No! Dru its the truth. IF you don't believe me ask Jay and the rest of them."

"Alright. Are we almost there?"

"Yep, just have to crawl through this window." I said. I heard another twig snap, this time from the shadows of the parking lot. I turned fast as lightening, and saw a tall man, maybe 6'8 almost 7'0 in a long black trench coat, with the collar pulled up around his face, and a broad rimmed black hat, the kind you would see in an old cop movie. He wore black leather boots, and suit pants. He looked scary from this distance. He started to move closer, faster and faster.

I pulled out my knives and whipped them open. I got into my fighting stance and got ready to pounce. He went to swipe my feet out from under me, but I jumped, and he fell to the ground. I jumped again on top of him, pinning him to the ground. My knees were pinning his wrists and my foot was on top of his number one friend.  I put the knife under his chin,and the other next to my foot. I got up close to him so I could see his face.

"Who are you? What do you want with us?"

"I am Reuben Harrison, of the Fowles Research Facility. I was sent to kill you and your siblings after word got out that you had killed their best agents. I was friends with your mother, I have no intention of following through on my orders."

"Alright a friend of my mothers? Did you know my father?"

"Yes. Very well. Because I am your father."

"NO you can't be. My father's name was Ronald Clark.Not Reuben Harrison."

"I had to change my name from R. Clark to R. Harrison. You understand pretty bird don't you?" my childhood nickname struck my inner conscious and I released him.

"If you pull anything. Or I find that your lying I will personally kill you."
