dare me to fly high
and i'll go even higher
Big fluffy masses of white dotted the Russian sky, each one nearly glowing in the bright sun. A pleasant breeze pushed the clouds along, creating the perfect conditions for Cirrus to show off her creations. The cloud girl zipped around the sky, working on a length of cloud. She was aiming to make it look like a sprinting hare, already planning on sending a predator cloud after it. A wolf, or maybe a fox... but then again, a bird of prey would work as well, and she hadn’t done one of those in a while. With that decision made, she focused on her current project, adjusting it here and there so the legs looked just right.


Cirrus floated back a bit to inspect her work, keen eyes quickly running over every detail. Satisfied, she nodded once, and waved at the cloud. ”You’re all done! Go make me proud!” With that, the hare started to move, joining the breeze as soon as Cirrus allowed it to. The wind would gently carry her creation over a nearby town, where the townsfolk would no doubt be out and about, taking advantage of the nice weather while it lasted. Cloudy, cold days were common this time of year, so the warm temperature and relatively clear sky easily drew people out.


Cirrus let her eyes linger on the cloud hare for a few moments, smiling as it went along its way. There was no time for a break, though. She had a hawk to get started on! She started flying around the sky, gathering up smaller clouds into a larger mass, picturing what she wanted to do at the same time. She was thinking of going for an action pose, with the hawk’s wings flared out and talons poised to strike, to match the fleeing hare that already had a head-start. She always liked making little stories with her clouds like this, and wondered how she could continue it, or if she would start a new one after the hawk was finished.


Before long, the mass of cloud was shaping up, and it was around then that Cirrus noticed she had an audience. She didn’t mean the townsfolk looking at her clouds, though. No, one set of eyes was specifically on her. At first, she thought it to be a curious on-looker watching the clouds bunch together and start shifting form, but after experimenting, she saw that they were really looking at her as she worked. She could also see that they weren’t human – in fact, she didn’t recognize what they might be at all – so it didn’t seem too far-fetched to assume they could see her.


No doubt they saw her looking, so she smiled and waved.

He didn't get it. Really, he didn't get it! This fell into the category of things humans did that he did not understand. He was certainly trying though. Katala stood at the edge of another town he wasn't supposed to visit, squinting up at the sky. He'd seen plenty of humans do this. Children, couples, the elderly. He didn't understand what he was looking for though. He guessed some of the clouds looked interesting but there wasn't anything special about today. Everything was nice and sunny, only a little breeze pushing the white puffballs across the sky. It was dull. He could understand watching a storm rolling in or watching the dying light of the sunset change and bounce through layers of clouds, there was something powerful in both of those things, but this was just... dull.

Katala was near ready to give up when he noticed a small dot zipping around the clouds. He tilted his head to the side, trying to figure out what it was. It certainly wasn't a bird. It was much too large and human shaped beside. Perhaps it was one of the many humans who had magic. Or perhaps a spirit who chose a human guise? But what in the name of the Tree was it doing? It finally dawned on him a moment later. It was shaping the clouds. But why? Why would it do that? Was it something it found amusing or was it something else? He tilted his head to the other side as it zipped onto the next cloud.

The thing was probably the most interesting thing in the sky at the moment. Certainly more interesting than the lazy puffs of vapor gliding across the sky. Katala had just puzzled out what it was making when it seemed to have realized he was watching it. It even waved at him. He returned the gesture with his own small, confused wave. What a strange thing indeed.
