"Arooooooooooooooo," it howled.
"Ha Ha Ha very funny Tattan."
"How did you know it was me?" said Tattan.
"I can see your wings you goof," Celia while shaking her head.
Tattan looked over his shoulder and saw one of his medium sized Green wings
popping out his Lupe disguise. His disguise was made from berries growing next
to the great river. Tattan made a face, brushed past Celia and dove in to the
pond, washing away his disguise. "Okay, I tried to fool you but you are way
to smart for me," said Tattan sarcastically. "I hate these stupid wings."
"You never know Tattan," Celia said while flapping her own wings. She looked
back at them and smiled, which made Tattan go very green with envy. "Your wings
may come in handy someday."
"Yeah maybe," he said while rolling his eyes at her. A bug had landed on his
wings and he tried to brush it off. "Can we just go explore the cave now?" Celia
suggested that they make a torch. Tattan found a branch and two rocks and in
about twenty seconds they had a nice bright torch so that they could see their
way through the cave. Celia and Tattan went one by one into the cave. Which
turned out to be a tunnel. They crawled through it for a long time.
"My wings are getting filthy," complained Celia. "How much longer do you think
this will take?"
"I don't know," said Tattan with a smile. "Maybe days or week's or…"
"A light!" said Celia. "I wonder if it leads outside."
"Let's find out," said Tattan racing up through the hole. They wound up in
a fairly small valley that was covered in sunlight. "We must be in Sunbreak
Valley," said Tattan brushing some dirt off his wings.
"Wow, nobody's been here for a long time," said Celia. "We're way past the
rocky hills then."
"How would you know that nobody's been here for a long time?" said Tattan
struggling to brush more dirt from his wings.
"Well, I heard the Legend from Myra a while ago," she said. "This is supposed
to be Moko's favourite spot. It's considered some what sacred."
"Sacred ground?" said Tattan with a laugh that made Celia scowl at him. "Come
on, Celia the legends are just stories told to little Shoyrus to make them do
what their parents say. Now let's go see if there's anything interesting."
Tattan walked around the small valley with Celia for fifteen minuets, when
Celia announced that it was late and they should head home for dinner. They
didn't find anything interesting except a few strings. Celia claimed that Moko
loved to play the harp and that they were harp strings. Tattan however was not
"This tunnel was a big disappointment. We should have gone to…." said Tattan.
He didn't finish his sentence though because his foot has brushed against something
soft and golden. Which made him stop dead in his tracks. Tattan looked down
at his foot and his eyes opened as wide as they could go. He was speechless.
"Ce-Ce-Celia!" he managed to croak.
"What is it?" she said looking down. She was rather irritated. She gasped
and looked over at Tattan.
Tattan bent over and picked up a beautiful golden feather. "Oh my," Celia
Tattan pointed at the ground. "Look there's a trail of feathers," he said.
"Let's follow them." Celia nodded and the two followed the trail of feathers
until they found something that surprised them both. A pair of golden wings
that looked exactly that shimmered in the sunset. Tattan and Celia looked at
each other. They knew that they had found the Wings of the Dream.
Celia looked down at the wings and mumbled to Tattan. "Are these what I think
Tattan nodded and snapped out of his trance. "They have got to be. Wha-Wha-What
should we do?"
"Nothing. They look like they're in perfect shape and we just had a bad storm."
Celia said. "If you think that we have to do something, then let's tell somebody."
"Should we?" said Tattan.
"What do you mean?"
"Well the story says that Kondach needs the wings right?" said Tattan. "Why
don't we bring them back to him."
"Oh so now you listen to the legends when it involves a perilous journey,"
said Celia. "Besides two little Shoyrus alone in a big world. We could get hurt,
or worse... be destroyed."
"We can't just leave them. I think that we should take them back because we
"Tattan I don't think we should," said Celia. "Why don't we get one of the
explorers to take then back. Besides it's been hundreds of years and the wings
are still glowing. Why don't we just leave them."
"Come one just think of it as the next great adventure!"
"Tattan I can't. We'd have to leave our mothers and the village…"
"Fine," snapped Tattan then I'll just take them back myself."
"No I won't let you go alone," said Celia. "Okay then I guess your coming
with me?" asked Tattan.
The two friends nodded and headed back to the tunnel.
"Wow, I just can't believe it," said Tattan while looking back at the wings.
Then he climbed into the tunnel. The two friends flew to Tattan's house. They
agreed to meet up in the morning. They also agreed to only tell their parents
