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.


17. It Appears I was Wrong

I sprinted into his room and saw a silhouette in the window. I immediately tensed and began mumbling an apology for entering. 

"I'm sorry its just the door was open and... well..."

My eyes adjusted and I saw it was Fynn. In his hands, he was holding a small, baby bird. The feathers were grey, much like his, and I gave him a quizzical look. He chuckled before answering, "It was about to fall out of the tree."

I made a little aww sound and walked towards him. I put out my hand to ask if it was okay for me to touch the baby bird. He nodded and so I stroked its little feathers, feeling the warmth of the tiny creature. Fynn looked on, all the time smiling. 

"I'm going to put it back in it's nest tonight," he said, looking into my eyes. I nodded, knowing the bird had to go back but feeling a little upset about it. He put the bird into a pile of clothes in the floor, carefully arranging it all like a nest before standing back up. I couldn't stop thinking about how sweet he was. 

He looked at me, taking my face in his hand before leaning in. Our lips met and his warmth spilled into me. I wrapped my arms around his neck as our kiss deepened.

I slowly pulled away, not wanting to ever leave him. 

"Where were you at school today? I missed you in history," I whispered, his hand still on my cheek.

"Had a dentist appointment at lunchtime so I just decided to ditch, sorry I forgot to tell you," he whispered back, causing me to shiver a little.

"It's okay, I'm just glad you're alright. Thought I might have gotten you sick."

He laughed at that before pulling me closer again.

We kissed, his lips soft agains mine. If someone were to look through the window, they would have seen a silhouette against a sunset. 

It was beautiful.
