The Adventures of Aquarius Boy – p.12

Aquarius Boy’s dream had always been to fly, it was true; but now that he was up in the air, separated from his family, his home, and the land, he was desperate to go back to normal. He had trouble believing it, himself! Flying was glorious, but being alone and distant from the world was too much to ask in return.

He said to the leader of the starlings, “Yes, I wanted to fly, but I did not want to be stuck in the sky for all time. Is there no way to get down?”

The birds all chirped and began to circle Aquarius Boy, until he became quite dizzy from watching them, and put his hands over his eyes. He was frightened and tried to call out to them to stop.

“Stop? Stop what? Are you all right, child?” It was the voice of the golden Lion.

Aquarius Boy opened his eyes to find he was lying on the ground, and the sun was shining. The Lion was sitting beside him, and so were the Scorpion and the Bull. “What happened? What are you all doing here?”

The Scorpion said, “You fell from the tree when it was struck by lightning; the starlings swooped down to catch you but your weight was too much for them. I’m afraid you hit the ground rather hard.”

The Bull snorted, “Made quite a lot of noise, too.”

Aquarius Boy looked up into the tree. The birds were gone. He stood and brushed himself off. “Thank you for watching over me; I should be getting home now.”

“Giving up on learning to fly for today, then?” asked the Lion.

“For today,” said Aquarius Boy, smiling.

    This was a very cute story. At first I thought he was caught in a tornado and then dreaming. I was half right. I enjoyed the story.
