The Adventures of Aquarius Boy – p.11

June 29, 2011 at 4:41 pm 1 comment

As Aquarius Boy descended through the clouds, the land lay like a patchwork quilt beneath him, and he promptly forgot his decision to visit the birds in the tree. He was enchanted all over again by the breathtaking view of the world.

The land at night was dotted with light from homes and cities, like man-made stars. Aquarius Boy smiled and laughed, and then wondered if he could find his own house. He changed direction and soon found himself high above the small place he called home. His mother and father were standing by the front door, and he could hear them calling his name.

Aquarius Boy yelled down to them, but they could not hear, so he tried to fly lower, but found that it was difficult; it felt as if something were holding him aloft and would not let him get too close to the ground.

He flew in frantic circles around his house, calling out at the top of his lungs, but could not be heard, and his parents never once looked up. Suddenly the flock of starlings came into view, heading east. He flew to meet them. “Help me, please, I don’t know how to land!”

The leader of the formation chirped back, “Oh? Didn’t you want to fly?”
