Light! And sound. And warmth.

And the feeling of the wind on his feathers.

And the flush of his first flared interest in another of his clan, a female.

And the glow of the full moon, and the sound of the celebrations.

The evil omen, spread in violet across the moon. The cries of fear.

But then, a crash. The return of reality, and the increasingly dangerous situation's rising in priority within Talu's mind. He had every intent to survive the storm, though he had no idea what had come of his home. Vata'inu was gone, now. He was sure of it. There could be no chance that he had wrongly navigated, especially with the sky being so much clearer than it suddenly was.

Another flash of light. The ripping roar of lightning, a crackle just tens of yards from his wings. Somehow, narrowly avoiding him. Manna was with him, now, guiding his wings and his eyes through the terrible storm. Still, he could feel his feathers strain, and his muscles ache. He had left Vata'inu behind, or what was left of it, long ago; he was flying East, towards the rumored mainlands of the ground dwellers. The demons, Manna's accursed. Perhaps they were vile and wrong and grounded, but Talu had no more choice than the wave does to crash against the shore.

His darkened eyes scanned across the horizons and though the searing of the light from around him was nearly crippling, though the thunder boomed and shook his chest and bones and wings, he persevered. He had no choice, now. He could do naught but pray to Manna and wish for his guidance to safety, and to his people. Could his clan still remain, with the skylands gone? Surely they had been out on hunt as well. When Talu returned from his flight, there was no sign of his people.

No colorful Lei to circle the skies, or share their cheerful cries with those they teased. No A’keiyah to tell wary tales and scare the young into behaving well. Not even the simple Po, tying tight the rope and wood of the bridges and keeping the homes sound. Talu was met with only suffocating loneliness. It was not long ago, however, that the Violet Moon rose and brought with it omens of chaos and evil and destruction. It was sacrilege, an affront to Manna, for the Moon's silver to be concealed by such vile shade. Talu should have known better.

Talu should not have left for the flight. Talu should have remained with his people.

And now, he pays the price, as he battles against the booming storm over the violent ocean, flying desperately for a chance to survive the falling of Vata'inu and the dispersal of his people. He knew that if there were one place they would flee, it would be the lands of evil rather than into the depths of the ocean. Talu has once, like all other fledglings, been weaved the mythos of the demons that walk on the ground without wings, who built homes of mud and brick and travel with wooden boxes and canoes.

But Talu has no choice. He struggles onward, with the hope in his heart draining rapidly though still strong with the intent to find his people. He will not abandon his clan, especially not now, in the time of the Great Disaster.
