"Right, Eve, I want you to span your wings out like this," explained Zoltus as he stretched his grey wings out into the mystifying fog. Only the thick black and white barred marking of his wings pierced through the darkness. "When you do this you can feel the air curling around your wings. You must feel for this, as this is the life of flight. Learn to shape the wind at your will and you will master flight," positively spoke Zoltus standing in the damp grass that came half way up his breast.
Breathing in deeply he felt the cool air fill his lungs. He was prepared to teach this young owl everything he knew as a Guardian. Looking out across the clearing at the gloomy forest he knew that within the nocturnal darkness brewed danger. A danger in which would soon spill poison throughout the known owl kingdoms. In the Timber Woods of Zephyr Eve was safe.
Like a perched ghost, Eve gazed through the heavy haze with dark eyes, as black as polished stones. She s

Flying silently above the Forest Kingdom of Tyto, Eve could feel the frosty wind curling around the tips of her flight feathers as she glided effortlessly through the midnight sky; inhaling the fresh air she breathed it out slowly creating soft smoke that faded into the frigid air. The air was bitterly cold yet energizing, she felt free as any fully fledged owl. Feeling calm her gaze leisurely moved smoothly across the immense canopy of fir trees, they seemed endless to her as they faded off into the mist. She never realised how remarkable it felt to be able to soar through the sky. Mist rose up from the darkness blurring out the waning gibbous moon and stars. Looking across her wing she saw no down. Her flight almost seemed to move in an automatic fashion as she didn't have to think about it.
"I- I Am flying!" exclaimed Eve excited as she peered down into the darkness below, looking at the vegetation through the canopy of trees. With her acute heari

I awoke in the doctors hollow, where I fell asleep last day. Honestly I was still tired but that didn't matter now. I wanted a word with "Strixy" and her team. I rushed into breakfast and just had milk berry tea nootie nut bread. I walked fast down to the hollow that Strixy had taken me to the other day.
"Hello Stella how are you?"
"Listen Strix I want you to help me. Your right I cant fly."
"DEAR! What happened to your face?"
"Long story but please help me."
"Alright alright. Before you actually take to the winds you will start in here with basic wing exercises to. I will try to help you develop habits to make you fly more evenly."
"Ok." From there she had me flap my wing backward then massaged my smaller wing. She told me to meet her tomorrow to continue follow up exercises.
Back at the doctors hollow Loren was in a fret. How am I going to tell the kids this she thought? I got to my hollow and the whole family was there. Looks like those bars had been installed too.
"Mum why are ther
Chapter31-Who am I?Loren and Caspian had figured out what happened. They ran to the aid of the chicks, Stella, and Kanak in the Infirmary. Although they were fine there was one soul who wasnt. And he couldnt shut up.Chapter31-Who am I? by ~wolfofsecrets
"Why have you been here, tormenting family, friends, and chicks?" Said the questioner
"Why havent you?" he said with delight. The others were heavily guarding the room and the questioner put a talon to my face, forcing my head to the floor.
"Now that you shall listen..." I cut him off
"Who says I will?" I snorted
"Hagmire does." I gulped. He was talking about the devil.
"Shouldnt you get me medical help. I could die of blood loss."
"You could but I know your flea- bitten ragamuffin distorted self wont." The questioner was getting an edge.
"Now if you actually want to live, you'll tell me."
I simply said what my mum had taught me "No."
"Fine. Bring her in!" Said the questioner. Who was her? Why did she need to be here. Whoever she was came to me and put a hole in me. A microscopic hole the si
Chapter 29- Going DownThe chicks were discussing about how it feels to fly. They all conversed except Alora. She just listened. It maddened her and she didn't like it, plus at this rate she never would even get to free fall.Chapter 29- Going Down by ~wolfofsecrets
"Axel your so brave, going after Aloralike that. How'd you do it?" Said Autumn
The brother among sisters answered in a modest tone "Well it wasn't brave just more of an instinct I guess and I didn't fly I just controlled how how I glided really." Alora was snapping. His every word manipulating her nerves, tickling them and then crushing them. "Well how come you glided so well then?" Said Eve with a tone of wonder.
"As I said before I controlled it. Iv' e figured out that I can move my feathers."
"What!" Said Autumn
"Preposterous!" Said Eve
"Its true! And if I can you could too!" He said as Alora watched him put out a wing and move his feathers. Now he was just over doing it, word and body.
"Brother why don't you just shut up. No one wants to here you speak." Said Alora rather
Chapter28- I AM DARRIENI took a flight to nowhere. I didn't have a direction just forward. It wasn't long until I landed at a sea cliff a fair distance from the Ga'Hoole tree. When I landed I heard a sobbing noise from below. I swung my head down to investigate. It was a male barn owl-or something. He looked up and I quickly looked away. His scarred, disfigured face with one eye blind, the image was burned into my brain so deep as my instincts were. He shot out from the rocky crevice like lightning from the sky. I fell back as he rose above me, something gleaming. Perhaps his eyes with triumph or his talons sheathed in metal. I staggered to my feet and took off in the wrong direction, opposite of the great tree. He flew faster and faster, and I seemed to be falling back slower and slower. Every one of his sloppy wing beats cut the air and hit me like blades slicing through me. I fell back and he was suddenly above me. I froze in mid air, looked up, he stared down, he swiped his talons across my face. No I waChapter28- I AM DARRIEN by ~wolfofsecrets
