Zephyr pt.11a kingdom among the clouds drifted over the planet Earth nice and slow. this kingdom was solely inhabited by the mythological creatures from fairy-tales. from colossal giants to itty-bitty fairys. any crime against the peace and serenity that holds said kingdom gets one banished to Earth; that's why people claim to have seen such fabulous entities. the current ruler is an aqua-marine-blue dragoness. her second-in-command is a griffen named just that... "griphon."
"yes, your highness?" "what's my name?" her voice was as though she were day-dreaming. "excuse me?" "my name. can you tell it to me?" perplexed, he could not. "i do not know your birth-name. i am only aware of your status as queen... why? don't you know it?" she sighed "no... not anymore. apparently hearing 'your majesty' and 'your highness' can make on
Zephyr pt.10one morning, while venturing to Cosmo Canyon upon the Highwind, a sound was heard by humans and dragons alike. a sound so terrifying, it still haunts them till this day (that is, if they were real...). the doorbell rang. everyone turned to the door. who would come to their home at this time of day? david was standing in the entrance to the kitchen at the time and went to the door. he looked around, but to no avial, there was no one there. everyone watched intently, but the only one to notice the obvious was rick. "hey, dad...look down" david succumbed to the suggestion.
sitting on the front porch were two baby dragons (Dragonets, if you want to get technical); one green, one red. Zephyr exclaimed and dashed to the children. she examined them both very closely and came to the conclusion that they were both male, noticed a note on the green one, and a scar o
Zephyr pt.9when she reached the cave, Zenith was clealy awake due to his voice drifting from the mouth of the den. she had suspected he was talking to Seto, but when she entered, it was not him. instead there was a female about the same size as her sitting on the couch by him. it was dark and Zephyr couldn't see any colors, just general shapes.
the conversation was between Zephyr and Zenith and was initiated by Zephyr. "so...i wasn't aware we were having visitors." "i know...it was a bit of a shock myself. i told her to wait, but she never listens to me and...that's why i love her." "'her' being...?" Zephyr indicated the unexpected visitor. "oh! where are my manners? this is Grace, my friend and lover." Grace only smiled and waved, but never uttered a word. "hello, Grace. i am Zephyr. and speaking of lovers, where is Seto?
Zephyr pt.8"i've decided. yes, you may sleep with him. i trust you both are responsable enough to be left alone...together, so yes." "thank you rick. thank you very much. i'm gonna stay here a little while longer, is that ok with you?" "sure, why not." came the reply as rick got up and decended the clifface.
"mind if i join you?" Seto asked emerging from the shadows behind Zephyr. surprised she whipped around to see the dragon of which she loved standing there. "of corse, Seto, you needent ask me. i do not mind at all." they both grinned as the male dragon sat next to the female. then simutaneousally gazed back at the never-blinking stars.
rick saw this. his day was getting better and better. just then rick was forced to adhere to the trunk of a nearby tree by a tremendous gust of wind which was followed by the ground shaking from a great landin
Zephyr pt.7and so he was going down to the corner, holding the trench coat and hat, when he saw an unconcious, prone, blue figure. "...no way...it's just like the dream..." and he started to run. he then proceded to drape the coat over the stilled body and put on the hat. the dragon stirred at this, but remained unaware. rick then put the draconian's arm over his neck and half-carried him back to the house.
rick burst in the door and called for help. aeris had the men put him on the couch to be examined. she checked his vitals and decided to let him sleep. they all took turns watching to see when he would awake. rick was on guard duty during the night when the draconian covered his mouth and spoke. "listen...i don't know how, but somehow i drempt i would meet you...and here i am" he let go of the boy "...same here...so.. what happened? why were you blacked-out on the sidewalk?"
Zephyr pt.6there were few on the sidewalks and the drivers seemed to not notice or care. almost to rick's house someone had bumped into Zephyr and knocked off her hat. the man picked it up and went to give it back when he noticed she wasn't human. he stared at her face in absolute wonder or fear, none could tell. he slowly handed it back to her and gazed at her scaley mug. 'thank you' Zephyr aimed at the man, apparently missing, as he said nothing, forgetting where he was and what he was doing. they reached home with no more interuptions.
"mom, i'm home. i've brought someone to see you." rick's mother wandered into the room wearing a splattered apron and smile. "well, who is it?" "her name is Zephyr and she just so happens to be a dragon." a hearty laugh resounded in the small entry way. Mr. fatherly figure (David) walked in "there hasn't been dragons since the middl
Zephyr pt.5on christmas eve Rick informed Zephyr that he will be gone the next day. over the years she was becoming aware of the fact that christmas was a special holiday for Rick and Naomi, so Zephyr didn't argue. the next day was christmas, and Rick got up really late and his parents were waiting for him to open his presents. Rick tried to act surprised at the gifts, but he couldn't get his mind off of Zephyr. he was worried something might have happened to her.
his mother (Aeris) was the first to see through his ruse. "honey, what's wrong? is something upsetting you?" "huh?..oh, no...everything's... fine" Rick lied with his fake smile. naturally his parents were satisfied.
the next day Rick ran straight to Zephyr's haven and sighed with relief. she was curled up on her bed with her back to the mouth of the cave. lazily she yawned and set her head upon her side so she could
Zephyr pt.4when they got there Rick had ordered Zephyr to stay outside . inside almost everything was set, so he went back out to Zephyr. Naomi appeared out of the entrance of the cave. confused, Zephyr wandered into the cave. "is it done, Naomi?" she just nodded her head with a smile on her face. Rick then wandered after Zephyr into the den and saw the amazement on Zephyr's face. Zephyr looked around at her remodeled home and stood awe-struck. she invited them both to sit down at the table stocked with foods, and did the same.
"I propose a toast. to Zephyr, may you live a long, happy life as our friend!" Rick exclaimed then guzzled down a soda. "to Zephyr!" Naomi cried and slammed down a drink. she nodded to both of them. they all sat down at the same time, smiling, and began to feast. there were many different kinds of foods. there was cake a
Zephyr pt.3for the next few days he had not gone to see Zephyr. nor had he seen Naomi either. strange... he thought, maybe I should go apologize... after school he went straight to the forest and noticed Naomi's bicycle hidden in plain sight (he almost missed it). naturally, he got suspicious and crept to the cave. when he got close he identified Naomi and Zephyr's voices. here is what he overheard "...he's a good kid, but he has trouble with emotions. he keeps them pent up inside, never tells anyone..." Naomi replies, "emotions? like what?" "anger, frustration, and exasperation at himself for not being perfect (even if no one is). then love and compassion for you." he could almost feel Naomi blush at that answer. "but how? everything always seems perfect with Rick..." questioned Naomi with the reply of "it's his smile...he's always smiling that soft smile
EasterRemember what you love,
you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.
God sends his regrets.
He made you grasping and slow,
in a late hour
when the wine washed low.
Remember what you love.
Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.
Reach what lies near:
the fat-faced child, the sweet-soft lamb;
tether the tantrum, trickle the blood.
Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
