I decided to text Rox. I knew Jasper might get suspicious if I rang her again.

I pressed send and got a reply within two minutes.

I wondered how I was supposed to get them back again. Hang on. If 'Slepes Wings' is to get them away, how about-
"Wakes Wings," I say. The pain is worse than 'sleeps wings' but I can see my red feathered wings. They're paler than before, more sunset than blood now. Nice. Now for the real test.
I go over to the window and open. Hopping lightly onto the outside sill, I almost fall off. The wind's strong, it blows my red hair everywhere. I narrow my currently silver eyes against it and spread my wings wide. Then I jump. I don't hit the ground, and my wings feel so natural it's like I've had them all my life. Flying is so fun! I fly to Rox's house and hover outside her bedroom window, waiting.
