Cedar Stormchaser – p.6

June 27, 2012 at 9:54 pm 1 comment

Unfazed, Cedar pressed on towards the storm. The snake had been nothing more than a distraction. He wondered whether it had been sent to him on purpose, or if it was just a random encounter. He’d never been this far from home before, and wasn’t sure what sorts of creatures dwelt in these short grasses.

The sound of his grandmother’s voice in his head had been comforting, but it also reminded him of the urgency of his journey. If he saw any more snakes, he would just run past them. He pulled out another corn cake as he walked, took a few bites, and then put it back in its bundle. He didn’t feel as hungry as he had before, even though he knew he’d walked a very long way and should be starving. He wasn’t even thirsty, or tired. So, he decided to run again, and close the distance that much quicker.

He ran and ran, his gaze ever fixed on the tumbling storm clouds, which he realized with elation were getting much closer. He could hear more thunder now, and even smell the ozone. He was so intent on his destination that he did not notice the bird that had flown over and begun to keep pace with him, just over his right shoulder.
