The Journey of Blue Jax – p.14

That night, Jax slept so soundly that she didn’t notice the cold, or hear the wind, or feel much of anything but relief. The next morning, she was woken by the low, soft warblings and chirps of the Biding Bird as it stood near her head. Rubbing her eyes, she sat up and smiled.

“Good morning to you, too. I was so excited to have you with me that I forgot to even ask you for anything,” she said. “It seems wrong, somehow; I know all the stories about you, and everyone always dreams about being able to own you and what they would ask you to keep, but…” She yawned and stretched her wings, stiff from the chill. “Don’t you mind? What I mean is, if I asked you to keep the cold for me, wouldn’t that make you cold? It seems selfish.”

The bird chirped at Jax, and hopped a bit nearer to her. Jax held out her hand, but the bird skipped over her entire arm and landed on her shoulder. It was still making low sounds in its throat, like faraway chimes in a gentle breeze. In answer, Jax’s stomach made its own low noises.

I can’t ask it to be hungry for me, she thought. I’ll just have to find something. She crawled out of the makeshift shelter, only to see that the sunlit forest was covered with almost a foot of sparkling green snow.
