The History of Sky

Sky lands into the cabin onto the overturned sofa.

“Ow” she moans.

 “You need to work on your landing” Ari says.

 “I know”

 “The dagger”

“Yeah, I found it” she picks it off her belt. “I need to go back to the lake”

 “Why?”

“That’s where it belongs, under the lake”

 “Good, we shall walk” setting off towards the lake Sky grips the dagger tightly by her side. “Sky… I have not been entirely truthful with you?”

 “What do you mean?”

“You haven’t stayed here forever…. You know that building you were at?”

 “Yeah”

 “You were born there, tested on as a child, that’s why you have powers”

 “Oh”

 “When you were 10 years old you ran away and met me, I took you in and taught you how to look after yourself, you don’t belong back there… not anymore”

 “What do you mean tested on?”

“They tested to see what you were capable off, clearly they didn’t do it very well as you broke out, you’re a lot stronger than you think you are”

 “Hmm” they arrive at the lake. The sun starts to set, it is time. “Just on time”

The End
