Everyday it's the same here…nothing ever happens…all I can do is let my mind wander and drown in memories of him. It's been so many years…maybe it's time to revisit his world…I need to move on and this is the only way. I blinked as I returned to reality. I slowly stood up, ignoring the creaking of my bones. The others around me glanced over as I started to walk off but didn't say anything to me as usual. My hand drifted down to my waist to check if my two notebooks were still strapped there. Reassured that they were there, I made my way to the portal. I peered down over the cliff into the swirling white depths below. I stood there, wondering if I was really ready to return to that world.
I have to do something and this is the only option, I thought to myself and with that thought I stepped off the edge and fell headfirst into those swirling depths. Everything went white then black. I closed my eyes as I felt the atmosphere around me change. I instinctively summoned my wings from my back and spread them out to stop my descent. I waited till I was flying smoothly before opening my eyes. I had forgotten how bright this world is…how beautiful it is. The sky was filled with white fluffy clouds that would turn bright when the sunshine peeked out from behind them. The way the sun shined through and enveloped the ground below in rays of heavenly light and reflected off the many windows of startlingly tall buildings and shiny new cars was truly breathtaking. I knew that if I had the ability to shed tears, I would have…it was so overwhelming to be back there but I was determined to move on so I focused on what I had to do. I looked at my notebooks and suddenly hesitated to continue. I thought of the consequences of what I was about to do but I knew they couldn't be avoided, given my nature. Knowing this, I suppressed my doubts and removed one notebook from the strap and left the other without strapping it securely once more. I held one notebook tightly in my hand as I closed my eyes again and just flew while occasionally doing some aerial flips. I opened my eyes after a while and looked down at my waist again. The other notebook was gone…just like I wanted. Having achieved what I needed, I returned to my realm…and waited.
Down below, a young man witnessed a notebook falling to the ground from the sky. He attempted to pretend that he hadn't witnessed such a strange event but ultimately picked up the mysterious book, unknowingly setting his fate in motion.
