Feathers of the Hawk 46
"That went well," Kahu said, happily, after dinner, changing out of the shirt and putting the earrings back in the box where she had found them.
"What?" Eyolf said, astonished that she could say that.
"Well, no one got hurt, did they?"
"Hardly any plates were shattered, there was almost no yelling, and we actually finished desert! I think it went very well."
"And I think we have different opinions of something 'going well'."
Kahu laughed. "I meant that it went well for a dinner with Niall, not that it went well in the sense of most dinners. I once had a dinner with Are that lasted three courses and the after dinner drink. No shouting, no shattering plates."
"It usually goes worse with Niall?"
"Last time I attacked Niall. This time I didn't."
"I held you back."
"That's not the point," Kahu said, even though she knew that he had a point there. "The point is that no one got hurt."
Eyolf laughed. "I guess that you're right," he said, undressing. "Hells take these clothes."
30 Days Of Character Development: Day FifteenSorry it took so long.
Is your character an early morning bird or a night owl?
Kahu barely managed to stagger into the room before she collapsed in front of the embers of the fire that had been happily blazing when she had left. She curled up in the straw that lined the floor and slept like a log.
Eyolf entered, a little after 4 AM, more than four hours after Kahu had. He noticed her sleeping on the floor and smiled. He knew that she wasn't a night owl, but this was exceptional, even for her. He picked Kahu up and put her on the bed, before calmly walking to the shower. He knew that she'd wake him up early, but the party had been worth it. He yawned and slipped in the bed to get at least three hours of sleep before Kahu'd wake up.
Later that day, Eyolf felt something shake his shoulder. He growled and kept his eyes closed. The tugging got worse. When he felt the hand that was lying on his shoulder tense and gather the force necessary to give a huge heave, he p
Feathers of the Hawk 45
Since the last chapter was posted kind of a long time ago, here's what happened: Kahu & Eyolf entered Skye Manor, Kahu told Eyolf she was pregnant. Okay, that's all you need. Enjoy! And for those who haven't seen it, I uploaded a journal I'd read if I were you. There's a link in the description.
"But that's great news! Why can't I tell anyone?"
"Two reasons. First of all, I want to tell Are first. Then you can tell anyone you want to tell."
"And the second reason?"
"It might still go wrong. I want to wait until there's six months left."
"And there's a wonderful reason for that too?"
"I guess. I don't know either. I just know that it is that way."
Eyolf nodded. "Well, come here, mama, and let me hug you."
Kahu smiled and walked over to him. He hugged her. At that very moment, Niall entered.
"Well, well. Did I interrupt something? Something important?"
Kahu turned and stepped out of Eyolf's embrace.
Feathers of the Hawk Prologue
An explanation for all of this will be in a journal I'll post in a few minutes.
The man sat in the cave and stared out. Suddenly, he leapt up.
"No," he whispered. "No! That can't happen!"
He knew that he had to stop this thread of the future from happening, or he'd have left her for nothing. And he couldn't stand that thought. A whole family ripped apart over a future that would never happen. He calmed down again and grabbed a piece of paper and a quill. He wrote a short note.
Let them meet now. S.
He whistled and bound the note to the pigeon that had arrived.
"Take it to my son. My Ravi. He'll know what I mean."
The man sat down again, concentrated and saw that the thread had vanished. He smiled. The possible future had changed; and what he had not wanted to happen, wouldn't happen that way. He knew that he had put his daughter on a hard path, but he had seen that he couldn't do anything else a long time ag
30 Days Of Character Development: Day Fourteen How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold?
Kahu shivered. She hated snow it was cold and wet. She wished she had a big, warm fur, since her feathered hawk-form didn't do much against the cold. She then remembered that she had a big, warm fur and shifted into a wolf before stepping outside. Few people dared shift while on Academy grounds, but even fewer people dared tell her what to do. She walked to her fighting class and told them to shift in a wolf or another animal about that size.
"No flying," she added, looking at Tama. In a few moments, there stood all kinds of animals. A few were wolves, like her. Some others were big cats and she saw one snow fox. It was smaller than the others, but she thought that the Thalia would manage she was one mean fighter. She wistfully sighed as she remembered the summer. She loved the warmth of the sun and being able to sleep outside and watching the stars without ten blanket
30 Days Of Character Development: Day Thirteen What does your character's bed look like when he/she wakes up? Are the covers off on one side of the bed, are they all curled around a pillow, sprawled everywhere? In what position might they sleep?>
Are walked into the room. He had knocked, of course, but when no one replied, he had just entered. Kahu was lying on the bed, asleep. Eyolf wasn't sleeping, but because Kahu was holding on to him, he couldn't get up. The pillows were all over the room, while the covers looked as if they had been hastily pulled over them.
"Wait outside," Eyolf said. "I'll try to wake her and get her dressed."
Are's nose had already told him that that'd be necessary. The only reason he had entered at all was that he had to wake one of them. He nodded and left. Eyolf woke Kahu slowly, since you never knew how she would react and when he had managed to get her to release him and wake up, he put on his pants and walked to Are.
"Sorry about that. Normally it's not as much of a
30 Days Of Character Development: Day Twelve How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email?
There was a knock on the office door, announcing someone's arrival. Are looked up, irritated. He hadn't expected anyone that day.
"Yes?" He hadn't meant for his annoyance to sip into his voice, but it had. He then sniffed the air and noted Kahu's scent, mixed with Eyolf's.
"I heard you were still working with paper, dip pens and ink and decided to change that," Kahu said, walking into his office with a cardboard box in her hands.
She put the box on his desk. "I'm going to teach you how to use a computer. You can protest all you want, but you're going to have to learn it."
Are was angry. "Where did you get the notion that this would be a good idea?"
"That's exactly what I said to Eyolf when he came into our house announcing the same thing as I just announced to you. With, in fact, this same computer. That was two years ago." She slid a smartphone out of her pocket.
