Cedar Stormchaser – p.17

The man had fresh tears in his eyes but he smiled. “The storm will destroy the weak, and you will rebuild to be stronger.”

Cedar blinked. “That is what we always do.”

“Yes, and the storms will always come.”

The weight of the world seemed to settle on Cedar’s shoulders again. “Then my quest was for nothing.”

“No, your journey has changed you, and I think when you arrive at your grandmother’s door, you will see just how much.” The man wiped a finger across his own face, and it came away covered in red. He then traced an unbroken line on Cedar’s face, under one eye, across the bridge of his nose, and then under the other eye. “Cedar Stormchaser, go help your people rebuild.” The next thing Cedar knew, he was falling through the clouds, and he could see the rain but it did not touch him. There was a flash of lightning, and afterwards, darkness.

He opened his eyes and saw blue sky above his head, felt damp earth underneath him where he lay. He sat up and looked around. He was only a hundred paces from his grandmother’s house. He stood, noticing that he felt tired but strong, and walked home.
