"Miranda, don't swear." Austin told her. The girl was sitting on the couch with a purple laptop on her lap.
"I'll swear all I want!"
"How are you using Wi-Fi?"
"You don't know."
"I don't," Miranda told him her eyes never leaving the screen "my mother never understood this place, I don't think we'll understand either."
"You've never been here before?"
"So you took us somewhere you've never been?" Austin asked her while looking at his own laptop, he was emailing Siena and Jerry. Miranda has told him, not to tell the young blonde about Danielle "how are you sure this 'Summer' won't mind,"
"It was made for this reason."
"Are you sure?"
"Fuck a duck!" Miranda shouted trying not to punch the screen of the purple laptop, with a few deep breathes, she looked at Austin who was smiling.
"What if there was a child?"
"Child? There's only teenagers here!"
"In the eyes of the law, I'm an adult." Austin said with a smile, before a light clue cushion was thrown at his face "hey! It's true. In Australia I can drunk!"
"We're in Poland, not Australia."
"I know that!" he told her, while she just smiled at him "I am an adult! Out of my family, I'm the mature one!"
"When pigs fly… backwards," Miranda said while giving him a dead pinned face "that's when I'll believe that."
"Thanks, Miranda, I love you too,"
"I know and you're welcome."
Austin just looked at her and crossed his arms. Miranda was trying to find a way to get to Russia and she'd been doing it for the last three hours. He knew his friend wasn't happy and it was starting to show.
"Airplanes are out, boats take too long," Miranda muttered looking at google "Trains are out, Austin what have you found on cars or trucks?"
"Won't let us hire one,"
"I hate this."
"Miranda, we'll find away," Austin told her causing Miranda to look at him. He just smiled at her and continued "we'll just have to think outside the square."
"Think outside the square…" she muttered while putting the laptop down and looking at a picture of her mother, her white wings shown with pride. Miranda looked at them and smiled "Austin I have an idea!"
"What is it?" Austin asked while Miranda just took off her top, show the singlet she was wearing underneath. The back had a low cut, showing off her birthmark "Miranda, what are you planning?"
"That doesn't help," he told her, while Miranda just pulled him to the stairs "Where are we going?" he didn't know what was going through her mind, but he didn't have a good feeling about it "Miranda?"
"Austin, we need to go to the roof," Miranda told him, while pulling him to the third floor "and don't worry, there's only six floors."
Austin didn't say anything as they made their way to the roof. He just looked at Miranda's back, wondering what the girl had planned. Miranda just looked at the sky, she loved being free in the sky. For a hundred years after she was born, the sky was the safest place for her kind.
"Miranda, what's going on?" Austin asked looking at the flat roof. He didn't know why she wanted to come here, but she did and he trusted her… most of the time, right now he didn't know what was going on "what are you doing?"
Miranda just looked at him and speared her pure white wings. She loved the feel of the air going around her. Walking up to him, she carefully out her arms around his neck and kissed him, making sure to put energy into his lungs.
"Austin, I'm going to be free."
"Free?" he asked while looking for her, when he did spot her "Miranda!" he shouted when the girl went backwards… off the roof, he ran to the railing "Miranda!"
"Austin, why are you shouting my name?" he heard behind him and looked to see Miranda flying back to the roof, a look of confusion on her face "you know my wings aren't for show. They did work, so you didn't have to shout."
"Doesn't matter," he said while pulling her into a hug, his arms just above her wings "please don't do that again, I thought you had killed yourself."
"I would never do that."
"I know, but that didn't stop me from worrying,"
"I'll fly us to Russia, it'll be faster than train or place," Miranda told him putting her arms around him "but you'll have to let me carry you,"
Miranda didn't answer him, instead she just put her arms around his knees and his shoulder, picking him up, bridal style. Her wings opened up to their full length and Austin hide his face in her shoulder. He didn't know what was going to happen, but he trusted her.
"Don't worry, Austin," she told him, once she was on the air. She always loved flying, since problems didn't seem to matter when you were in the sky "I promise nothing bad will happen to you. Besides it's a really pretty sight."
Austin didn't move his head and Miranda knew the reason. Humans weren't made to leave the ground, their lungs weren't made for it. It was the reason, she had to make Austin's lungs be able to take the height she was flying at. Austin just kept his eyes closed and soon he was drifting off to sleep.
"Don't worry," she whispered to the male who was relaxing in her arms "go to sleep and when you wake up, we'll be in Russia and you can see your brother."
