The Journey of Blue Jax – p.9

Slowly, the troll untied the bag, letting it fall open carefully in his palm. It was empty.

“Some great treasure you got there,” Jax said. “If you’re done wasting my time I’d like to get in out of the wind.”

The troll frowned. “I thought certainly you would be able to see it. There aren’t many blue fairies in the world so I guessed, wrongly it seems, that it meant you were special.” He started to tie the bag up as if there really were something fragile sitting in his hand.

“You expect me to believe there’s something there? What kind of line is that? Being blue doesn’t mean I’m stupid, it just means I’m blue.”

“Hold out your hand,” he said.

Jax did as she was told and the troll turned his hand slowly over, letting the invisible object fall into hers. She nearly dropped it, for she expected to feel nothing at all. Instead, she felt something warm; something moving.

“There,” said the troll, “that’s interesting. Usually, those who can’t see it get pecked right away. Maybe I wasn’t wrong…”

“What is it?”

The troll lowered his voice and leaned in close. “You are privileged to be holding a Biding Bird.”

    Warm and moving? What luck! A living, breathing hot water bottle. Maybe a three-dog-night = one-biding bird-night? It begs the question, though, if Jax finally got warm, would she still be so “blue”?:-)
