The Adventures of Aquarius Boy – p.6

June 22, 2011 at 3:50 pm Leave a comment

Aquarius Boy had just started to shinny up the trunk of the tree when he heard a great roar coming from below. In the shade of the tree sat a golden Lion, and he was glaring at Aquarius Boy.

“Get down here, child,” the Lion growled.

“I am not at all sure that’s safe,” he answered, still clinging to the tree trunk. He could hear the starlings high above, chirping nervously.

“It is certainly safer than climbing a tree when the thunder and lightning are on their way.” The Lion opened his mouth, breathing with his nose and mouth together, scenting the storm. “It will be a fierce one.”

Aquarius Boy was doubtful. “The birds are safe here, aren’t they?”

“You are not a bird.” The Lion stood. “Come with me, I know a place that will be dry and sheltered.”

“Okay,” he said, glancing up at the starlings once more before sliding back down the tree trunk to the ground.
