Leaping off the rock arms outstretched, Brianna’s wings unfolded, flapped and tossed her skyward.
“Brianna!” Amanda, wingless and earth bound, chased after her child.
The girl’s laughter floated upward and became a startled cry. “Mommy!?”

Suddenly Amanda was caught, held tight and then set gently upon the ground. Brianna scuttled close, taking a tight hold of her mother’s hand. Folding his wings, Abriano took one step back.
“Is she?” “Is he?” The questions were simultaneous.
