The Adventures of Aquarius Boy – p.9

The starlings were quiet as the storm raged around them. The thunder was getting louder with every passing minute. Aquarius Boy was not discouraged, though, and simply smiled up at them. Perhaps, he thought, they cannot speak. Then, careful not to lose his balance, he slowly raised his arms, and flapped them like wings once; twice; three times. He pointed at his chest, then up at the sky, and finally at all of the birds.

He couldn’t have been more plain and clear, he figured, and waited for the starlings to make some sign that they understood and would agree to teach him to fly.

Instead, there came a brilliant flash of lightning; Aquarius Boy’s entire field of vision turned white and he felt himself falling; or was he floating? He felt warm, and there was a single note of music in his ears. He realized his eyes were shut tight, so he opened them and saw…clouds.

Clouds! He was flying!
