EXCERPTIt feels good to spread my wings and fly among the clouds. The flight relaxes and prepares me for the stress and uncertainty of the job ahead. As I'm swept away on a thermal, my thoughts turn to Analia and I can't help but wonder where she is being held. I pray I can get her out before the government forces move in.
Switching my thoughts back to the reason I'm up here, I search the ground for somewhere to hide my belongings. Being eagle-eyed has its benefits, about two miles from the compound I sight a small opening in the side of a densely forested cliff. I glance over my shoulder and drop out of the air stream to swoop down to the site. I drop the bag onto a small ledge before landing. Once on my feet, I gather it in my beak and move forward toward the small opening.
It appears nothing else has taken up residence. It's too high for most creatures which could be a threat, but after shifting back to my human form, I tentatively move forward.
The opening is small but large enough for me to squeeze through. Once inside, I stop, rooted to the spot, amazed with what I have found. It's like a whole other world. Plants of every type bloom in the brightest of colors under the pale light of the moon. I hear the roar of water and venture forward, scanning around me for an ever-present danger. I find none.
My eyes widen when I come across a waterfall spilling into a crystal clear pool. The water is thunderous as it cascades over rocks, spray misting in every direction. It's a magnificent sight. After hiding my bag under dense brush, I reluctantly leave this unspoiled paradise. There are more urgent priorities.
BIOI'm an Australian and live in Queensland.
I have always loved to write and have a vivid and overactive imagination.
In my spare time, when I'm not writing, I love to walk, read and shop.
I believe no mountain is too hard to climb, no river is too wide to span and no journey is too difficult to complete. I follow my dreams and I urge and encourage others to do the same.
With a positive attitude, the impossible can become possible.
