Cedar Stormchaser – p.12

Cedar stared at the man, trying to decide if he was just another distraction, or if he was, in fact, the trickster spirit his people believed brought the storm. He thought for a moment and then said, “I would not ask you to be anything other than what you are, so that I might know you for my friend or my foe.”

The man laughed. “So you intend to fight the storm, and me if I stand in your way?”

“I intend to do whatever it takes to protect my people.”

“Very well,” the man said, and raised his hands again. Suddenly the storm was upon them, soaking them and lashing out with fierce gales of wind, blinding them with lightning and deafening them with thunder. Cedar stood his ground, but the storm was too fierce, and before he knew it he had been lifted off his feet and blown up into the heart of the blackest cloud. He punched a fist out into the air in frustration and wondered if he would die. Had he been foolish to go on this journey? How does one fight a storm?

He felt a rush of air and found himself standing in the sun. The black clouds were beneath his feet, and the man with the painted face was standing beside him, grinning.
