One and then Two

An eight year old girl got wings. Now she's fifteen, flying at night for the thrill of it and convinced there's another like her doing the same. On her quest to find them, she must be careful not to reveal what she is.


15. Beautiful

They were beautiful. It was almost as though they unfurled in slow motion, his wings stretching even further than my own did. They were nothing like mine; they were ashy, grey, black and the bottom was pure white. He looked down and I saw a small blush forming. My breath was completely caught in my throat and I couldn't say anything except for a single word, "Wow."

He gave em a smile and gestured to my own back. Right. I had to show him my wings. I told him to turn around, making a little twirling motion with my hand. I grabbed my flight shirt and swapped them over faster than one would think was possible. 

"You can look now," I told him. 

Fynn turned to look at me and was confused when he saw my shirt. I know what he was thinking- how is she going to get her wings to unfurl with that on? 

I twisted so the back was visible and he immediately grinned. The two slits were handmade and so not exactly straight.

My breath was shaking and I took in as much air as was physically possible at that point in time. 

They unfurled and his eyes widened. His own wings were still out and he walked forward to go to touch my wings. 

"I can't believe it," he whispered. He looked into my eyes, searching for something. He stepped a little closer and held my cheek with his hand. It cupped my face and brought it closer to his. I closed my eyes as his lips brushed against mine. Our wings curved around us, creating a cocoon. I shivered a little as he brushed my lips again. He looked into my wide eyes with a emotion in his eyes I just couldn't identify.

"I can't believe I found you," I murmured against his lips. 

"I can't believe you found me either," he whispered back.
