Suddenly the white parrotlet starts to fall out of the tree. Is she doing that on purpose? "Oooh! Cool! Can I try?" I say. I wonder if it's a trick that they learned? The humming bird is helping her up, but failing miserably." Oh. Maybe that wasn't a trick." I say. I help the other bird get the parrotlet to another branch. She looks at me gratefully and I return it happily. " how did you guys get here? Don't you have a flock? Oh, I know! Are you one of those who don't have one? You should come with me! I can show you my flock... they don't really like me but I am sure they will warm up to me one of these days! Anyway, i've never seen anything like you guys before. Except for the parrotlet and the hummingbird. You see hummingbirds around occasionally. I saw a parrotlet in a human glass force field once, after I almost bumped into it. So, what's your name! Mine's albert. Not al, I hate nicknames, don't you?"
Breed: Blue Jay
Extra details: a wild bird who is very tough and protective. She was the princess of Oaksong Kingdom until the kingdom was destroyed in a forest fire and everyone scattered.
I gaze at the little group below me and I wonder what kingdom hey come from. I have seen many hummingbirds, but I have only seen parrots and budgies once, when my mother showed me the world I was to rule. We passed over a human village and I saw a human taking care of a parrot and a budgie. They seemed very pampered. I have always been confused by domestics birds. Why have the humans locked them in their cages? Why don't they get their own food? What is so important that they stay? When I asked my mother, she only told me that was the life they chose.
I open my eyes and look around. Ugh... What happened? I remember feeling hot and dizzy... and after that, I had a vision. A vision of Forestsong being attacked by huge, black, corrupt-looking birds. I reflect back on the days I've been in Forestsong... Nope... No bird ever attacked. Maybe it's a vision of the future...? I wonder...
The white parrotlet opens her eyes. " Oh yay, your awake!" I chirp. Can I get anything for you? What about a nice bug? Caterpillars are nice, but you need to be careful with those... Hey are you ok? You look scared! I never get scared! Nope, never!" Oops, I think I just told them a lie... I get scared a lot. It couldn't hurt though, right? It's better that they like me and think I'm brave anyway.
~~~Melody~~~ "La! Laladeedum!" I sing. "La! Laladeedum!" The baby birds echo. "Wonderful!" I exclaim, "You all have the most beautiful voices!" I smile, when Sapphire, a young blue bird walks over to me looking troubles, "But, Melody! You have the most beautiful voice! That's why you teach us! Oh oh, and you have a pretty smile!" She says firmly. I laugh, "You're a bunch of flatterers!"
"Are you ok?" A green and redish hummingbird is standing above me. "Huh?" I hum slightly recovering from my dream. I miss my days as the music teacher in the Forestsong Kingdom. I sigh, thinking of the parties I would sing at, the recitals the children I taught sung at... Then I realize I humming again and the bird watching me is giving me weird looks. "Oh!" I exclaim and blush. "Sorry 'bout that... And uh, yeah, I'm fine, just took a nap. I'm Melody, by the way."
I hear a knock at my door. "Who is it?" I ask. "It's me, Flit." I hear my maid, and best friend, Flitter say. I sigh, "Come in." She comes in and sits next to me on my bed. "Hey Riv, I still can't believe it's almost been two years and you haven't said a thing to your father. You haven't even left your room!" She exclaims. "He had no right! She was innocent! He didn't even listen to me! You know that Mel was our best friend and my cousin, nonetheless!!!" I exclaim angrily. I sigh and shake my head, as Flit wraps a wing around me, I put a head on her shoulder. Two years back my dad had my cousin banned from the kingdom thinking she committed a serious crime, she hadn't I knew who did, he didn't believe me. I haven't talked to him since. I might never talk to him again. I don't know...
