The Journey of Blue Jax – p.15

The snow had drifted right up to the entrance of the shelter, and Jax dismayed that the litter and destruction that had let her follow the elk was now completely covered. She flew up and landed on a branch of the nearest tree to get a better view, but it was smooth green drifts as far as she could see.

“What am I supposed to do now?” Jax lamented.

The Biding Bird reached over and bit her gently on the ear.

“Hey, what was that for?” She shook her head. “I’m not sure what you want from me but I’m a little short on ideas…and directions…and food…”

The bird nibbled her ear again, and then chirped three times.

This is it, Jax thought, now I’ve made it mad and it’s going to curse me or something. “If only it wasn’t for this bothersome snow!”

The Biding Bird left its perch on Jax’s shoulder then, and flew around her head, chirping and singing, making loud, beautiful noise. Jax suddenly thought, or felt, or knew, what she should do. “Can you…can you bide the snow?”

As soon as she spoke the words, the Biding Bird landed on the branch beside her, opened its wings wide, and the snow from miles and miles around them disappeared.
