The Journey of Blue Jax – p.20

In the blink of an eye, the land for miles around was buried in snow, save the small clearing where the herd of elk stood. They were trapped in their new home.

Jax laughed so hard that she fell off the branch and only managed to flap her wings in time to keep from falling into the snow. She had not laughed that way in a long time, and could not stop herself. She flew over to the Biding Bird, who began chirping merrily too, and together they headed back along the trail towards the winterless valley.

The fairies were happy in their new home, and Jax was included in their lives from then on, no longer made fun of for her indigo coloring. The Biding Bird lived with Jax, until one night nearly a year later when there came a knock on Jax’s door. A gruff voice called out, “You don’t have to invite me in, I don’t plan to stay long.” Jax opened the door and saw the troll who had given her the Biding Bird. “Time’s up, girl.”

“What do you mean? What are you doing here?” The troll ignored her and held out his arm. The Biding Bird flew over and obediently landed on the troll’s shoulder. “Hey!” Jax shouted.

The troll grinned. “One may only keep the bird for a year and a day, and your time is just about up. That’s how these legends work, you see.” As he spoke, the Biding Bird began to vanish from sight. It let out one last happy chirp at Jax before the troll turned and walked away, on to a new adventure.

    Yay! This has been my favorite story so far. As I have been reading it, I’ve had my own illustrations popping up in my head. I will miss Jax, but look forward to the next new story. Good writing Sis!
