The Journey of Blue Jax – p.17

Without warning, the trees thinned out and the forest opened up onto a cliff. A warm, gentle breeze blew steadily in from the south, and Jax looked down from the edge. There, grazing on thick grass, was the herd of elk. They had followed a steep trail in the face of the cliff down to the lush valley below, and were now sedately grazing. Winter had not come here.

“They don’t look so dangerous now,” Jax said, though she knew if provoked they would certainly rampage again. She sat down, her little blue legs dangling over the edge of the cliff, and the Biding Bird landed beside her. “I wish I could bring the whole clan here; with you to help me keep the snow away I think we could make the journey. I just don’t know what to do about them,” she said, pointing down at the herd.

The Biding Bird chirped happily, and hopped up and down.

“Don’t tell me, you could actually bide them, too?”

The bird flew around Jax in a circle, trilling a single high note.

Jax smiled. She thought about the other fairies, and wondered if she would make it in time. “Don’t worry, you won’t have to keep them for long.”
