His wings were beginning to grow heavy.

Outflying a persistent group of hunters had not been how the firebird had wanted to spend his afternoon. He'd flown for miles in an attempt to lose them, but they had stubbornly followed him on horseback. All the while, their bows had been trained on his form and their hunting dogs barked wildly at the prospect of a new prize. The bird regarded them irately from on high in the sky. Normally, he had no qualms about ending their foolish lives and abandoning them to his flames, but there was a hitch this time around. They'd children with them. Most likely, sons of the hunters who simply thought themselves to be enjoying a game with their fathers. Their brights smiles had not been sinister nor greedy. Simply pure and admirable towards the ones who ultimately fed their mouths at night. While the firebird was reluctant to admit it, he knew these hunters weren't alike the others, either.

However, it was always harder when he decided to spare people for this very reason. Miles from where he started, the firebird knew he'd have to land soon or he'd just fall. But if he landed, the dogs would be on him and while he hadn't internally promised not to spare the dogs, knew that his flames traveled too quickly. There was no telling just who would be caught in the crossfire. Survival was a strong instinct and if it came to that, the bird would burn them through if it became necessary. Until then, he would do all he could to avoid it. That was a weight heavier than that on his wings and one he did not want to shoulder.

A forest was soon visible to him and he ducked around trees and brush in an attempt to keep himself out of their sights. The frustrated and confused yells of the hunters behind him alerted him that he'd finally gotten them off his trail, but that still left the problem of finding a place to land. The forest was a place one as himself could not rest easily, not without a proper shelter. However, even in his human form, he would not be able to muster the strength right now to secure a perimeter. Stronger in his true form, he knew it was what he needed to remain in, even if it wound up catching more attention later on.

As if in answer to some silent prayer he did not remember offering up, an old stone tower soon came into his keen view. It didn't seem occupied, judging by the amount of shrubbery that had outgrown it, but the firebird was always a cautious one. Besides, he could always burn away any resident who lay inside, should they deemed a danger. It was the only place he knew he could peacefully rest. At least, for the time being. With that thought in mind, he hastened his pace for the homestretch. Landing on what appeared to be a man-made window, the firebird took in a heavy breath. He wasn't in the clear yet. His flames were bright; he needed to dull them to ward off anyone spotting him. In a moment, his undistinguishable body of flames burned away, revealing bright red feathers underneath. While they still glowed with the light of flames empowering them, he at least looked like a somewhat more normal bird. It...was the best he could do in the tired state he was in.

His wings in pain from the flight, the firebird gently touched his beak to his left wing and started to preen out his injuries.

13 years. That was how long she'd been in this tower.

God it was boring, but, for some reason her mother always insisted that she stay up here, because the outside world was bad.

Rapunzel didn't complain though, her mother at least loved her. That was obviously why she forced to stay up here, since it's a dangerous world out there, and, wanted to keep her safe.

Rapunzel felt herself being woken up by Pascal as he ran over her hand, causing her to sit upright at the desk. "Thanks Pascal, I must've fallen asleep." Rapunzel said.

She stood up and grabbed a broom, beginning to sweep the tower. If this place wasn't clean when her mother got home, she'd be mad at her.

Suddenly she heard a noise coming from the window, and, she jumped as she hid behind the cupboard door, with the broom still in her hand.

Rapunzel peeked out, and, looked towards where the noise had come from. Keeping the broom in front of her, she noticed that it was just a bird. Rapunzel let out a soft sigh of relief, as she made her way back out, and, over to the bird.

She ran her finger along the feathers of the bird, as she hummed at it. "You're going to be ok now." Rapunzel said, as she gently lifted the bird up, and, placed it onto the table.

Kai Anyxia » I thought childhood would be better, because then it would make sense not to remember a visitor to her tower before Flynn.

There was a scratchy, scurrying sort of noise from the upstairs. Admittedly, it'd been foolish of him not to check this tower for any living residents, but the prospect of at least a second's worth of rest had warranted him not to fret. Besides, he could just rid whomever was inside, should they prove to be a burden. He may be weakened, but he was not defenceless. A mistake people often misinterpreted. However, the noise drew closer until he spotted probably the last thing he ever expected.

A young girl.

What she was doing alone in such a desolate place, the firebird could not say. He narrowed his eyes on the object of his interest, the one that had been making that irritating scratching sound - a broom. For her to be caring for this tower's appearance, it was obvious that she dwelled within it on a permanent basis. She seemed harmless enough, for a child. Jumpy, if he cared to notice. The worry was actually somewhat endearing. He was well aware that he didn't look like any bird that was native to these forests (or any forests, really) so her wariness of him was well placed. He would only need to rest for a few moments, so as long as she stayed away, he could -

She was touching him.

The fool, had he not been paying attention, her delicate little hand would have burnt away. But he managed to keep his temperature tolerable, though he knew his feathers were still quite hot. A warning, of sorts. Just to stay away. But either she was unpredictably tolerant of pain or she failed to notice. The firebird wasn't sure which he ought to be more concerned about. He had half the mind to burn her, if only slightly charr her skin, just for good measure, but refrained himself from actually hurting her on account of her gentleness. The way she was lightly touching his feathers alerted the bird that she meant no harm and was just perhaps gentle beyond his understanding.

But then she picked him up.

Stroking his feathers was one thing (some one thing, which, he scarcely allowed anyone do to begin with), but manhandling him was completely undignified and unnecessary. So if the firebird released a rather irritated squawk from its throat and thrashed around a bit in her hold, she'd have to excuse him. He was careful not to burn her or scratch her with his talons, but his squirming should have been key enough that he was unhappy with the gesture, if not a little distressed by it. Thankfully, she seemed privy to his discomfort as she then placed him onto a table. The firebird released a small growl-like noise to signal his displeasure with her before sitting and immediately cleaning his wings of her scent. Though it was a nice scent, it wasn't naturally his.

Of all the towers...

Rapunzel kept her gaze on this bird that had flown into her tower. She'd never actually seen a bird this close up before, or anything this close up for that matter. So when a noise came from the tower, she had first assumed it was her mother returning home. But at the same time her mother usually called down to her, and, only came in via her hair. So that made her all the more curious.

But, a part of her was still frightened, since for all she knew this could be someone who would be after the power of her hair. Rapunzel kept the broom in her hand, knowing that this was really the only weapon she had, and, she couldn't even call it that really. Rapunzel just wanted something to be able to hit them with something if it tried to attack her. But, it still seemed like it was only a bird, which wasn't that scary. Rapunzel slowly lowered down the broom, as she moved closer towards it. But, letting Pascal go ahead first.

The poor bird was hurt.

Rapunzel knelt down, and, gently stroked the creature's feathers, trying to examine the injury of this bird. The feathers were strangely hot, and, while it caused her to flinch, she continued to try and be gentle over the poor creature's feathers. She didn't want to hurt him, and, she also attempted to keep Pascal away from him.

She picked up the bird, if only to make it harder for Pascal to get to him.

She hoped she wasn't hurting the bird, as she wasn't planning to. Rapunzel knew that if he was left on the floor, then Mother Gothel may find him, and, she wasn't always the kindest with creatures from the outside world. For some strange reason. Rapunzel could sense the cry of pain, and, quickly, but, gently placed it down on the table. Rapunzel tilted her head as the bird seemed unhappy about that. So, she left him for the moment.

This was some strange creature.

He couldn't help that some of her scent would remain on his feathers for a time. He was much too weak to lift his wings to their full extent and it hurt to move them too much. The firebird did not like this feeling; he had never been pushed to the edges of his stamina before. He supposed he could still fly away, if this girl turned out to be more of a problem than he predicted she'd be, but that was a pain in his wings he didn't exactly want to force. While the firebird was very highly pain tolerant (he had to be and he ought to be, to die so many times), this was a new sort of weariness that he did not want to push. So when the young girl set him on the table and left him be for the moment, he was thankful. He cleaned his feathers as much as he could without sparking anymore pain, but realized he hadn't gotten far at all. As much as he disliked water, he'd have to stop by a stream to rid the scent as soon as he was able. Something as natural as he could not afford to smell of humans.

Another scurrying noise caught his attention.

The bird's eyes darted to his side to see a small reptile. Fantastic. It must have climbed the table whilst the girl wasn't looking. As soon as the firebird's eyes had found it, the creature tried to conceal itself by shifting its colors, but the firebird's eyes were always keener than most and saw through the deception rather easily. He extended his beak to the reptile, to catch its scent and better identify it, and the thing reacted in kind by parroting his own actions with its snout. A rather curious little thing, this was. Kai had heard of them before - chameleons, he believed they were called - but he'd never seen one in the flesh before. He had to admit, its ability to blend into its surroundings as it did was somewhat impressive. Certainly a skill the firebird would have found useful only a few hours ago.

Luckily for the little chameleon, the firebird was mostly privy to fruits and seeds and was not a meat eater. So after he greeted the other creature, he returned his attention to the young woman who had shown him a bit of kindness, though he did feel as the reptile drew a little closer to him - most likely in an attempt to use the bird's own heat to regulate its body temperature. Strangely enough, the firebird didn't mind. The firebird sort of just watched as the girl went about her business, inquisitively. Why did she insist on staying in this tower? Surely, she could leave.

Every once in a while, he would stretch his wings just a little more, testing them out. Pretty soon, he would be able to revert back into a human form, if he found that the need called for it. He wasn't entirely sure which was the better option concerning the girl. Considering she already had a reptile in her company, perhaps it would be wiser to remain as a bird. Seeing a bowl of fruits across the way, the firebird chirped at the girl to earn her attention, then tilted his head inquisitively at her. Even in his firebird state, he could retain the manners to at least ask for food before grabbing it. This tower wasn't the wild, after all.



ooc note: these two are already adorable together and kai's just a bird LOL

Rapunzel continued her work in the tower, determined to finish this before her mother came back, and, saw that the tower was still a mess. She hated what her mother did when she disobeyed her orders, and, it always scared her. So she didn't want to have to face that wrath, knowing that she didn't do what she asked of her.

She left Pascal to watch the bird, and, make sure that he was ok, while she finished doing her chores. Rapunzel knew that Pascal would be ok with guarding the bird, and, it wasn't like she was going far if it became an issue.

She was sweeping the floor, before she heard a noise from the bird she'd put on the table. Rapunzel raised her eyebrows in surprise. “Oh what's wrong little guy?” Rapunzel asked, smiling softly. She walked back over towards the table, and, looked down at the bird for a moment.

Obviously this bird wanted something. Rapunzel let out a soft chuckle as she noticed the bird looking in the direction of the fruit bowl. “Oh you want some fruit?” Rapunzel smiled as she went to reach over to the bowl. “Which one do you want?” Rapunzel asked, gesturing to the fruit, waiting for the bird to give some kind of hint as to which fruit he was actually after.

Kai Anyxia » I know. These two are so adorable.

Little guy. This woman had some nerve. Kai's eyes narrowed a little at the nickname, but he made no audible nor physical indication that he was going to correct its use. There was no point, really, even if it was a tad indignant of her. He supposed he was a bit smaller than his normal true form, but his body grew in strength with his flames. Seeing as he wasn't burning this tower down, it made sense that his current form was rather small. He imagined it akin to the size of a well-fed hawk. Whichever size it were, he didn't think it warranted the endearment of "little guy" but perhaps he was just being stingy. In his opinion - should anyone had actually asked for it or if it had actually mattered beyond his pride - the little reptile attempting to snuggle against him was the "little" one. Kai turned his gaze upon the chameleon briefly, to ward him from drawing any closer, before his attention was returned to the young girl who had thankfully read his gesture as one of hunger.

The quickest way to replenish his strength - other than surrounding himself by fire - was to eat and Kai would admit to being a bit famished. He'd been flying most of the day, away from those hunters, which had left little time to land and forage for foliage to consume. He didn't particularly care which of the fruits in the basket she'd given him as he liked most all fruits and seeds, but since she'd been so kind as to ask and spoil him, Kai made a small noise when her hand ghosted over an apple. He always did enjoy the tart sweetness of apples.

Tired of the reptile's company, the firebird conjured up a little strength to lift his wings and fly back over to the window. It was the perfect vantage point, being so high up in the forest. After he flew, he made a point to sit down on his folded talons, nestling a little into the stone beneath him. He peered outwards to the forests below for a moment. Thankfully, he did not sense the hunters who had been chasing him down. As he'd hoped, he must have lost them in the dense forestry. For the moment, he could rest. When the young woman returned with an apple, Kai looked up at her delicately sniffed at the apple for a moment (one could never be too sure in this realm - poisons, enchantments, he'd seen it all) before taking a small piece within his beak.

Honestly Rapunzel had no idea that this bird was anything more then just a bird who had injured itself. She chuckled softly as she watched Pascal seeming to just poke at the bird, Rapunzel would pull him away, but, it wouldn't stop Pascal and she knew that. Rapunzel just continued to try and clean up this place, before her mother got home. Since she was going to need to explain what had happened if it wasn't clean. But, soon her attention went back to the bird as he made a noise implying wanting some attention. And, she moved her way towards the fruit bowl where he was gesturing.

She didn't know what the bird wanted to eat, but, she could understand getting hungry, but, not being able to do anything about it yourself. Rapunzel had had that happen a couple of times, when her mother had kept her too busy with chores to be able to eat in between. Rapunzel didn't think the bird would be able to answer, but, she asked the question anyway. She continued to run her hand over the fruits before stopping when the bird seemed to acknowledge that he wanted an apple.

Rapunzel let out a soft chuckle as she noticed the bird fly away from Pascal, before looking in Pascal's direction for a moment. She gave him a somewhat 'seriously' look, before heading over to the window where the bird now sat. She kept the apple in one hand, as she heard Pascal grabbing another piece of fruit. Reaching the window with the bird, she sighed softly and glanced out of the window for a moment, just glancing down at the Forest that her mother forbid her from going to. Rapunzel shook those thoughts out of her head, before focusing on the bird. Holding the apple out towards him, Rapunzel chuckled softly as the bird took a piece of the apple.

Kai recognised that look in her eye, as clearly as he could recognise the emotion swimming beyond her vision. It was a look of longing she had for the forest, which only begged the previous question as to why she didn't just leave. The tower was high up, but surely there was a way down. If not, a broken leg or two was better than living in such a desolate tower for the rest of her life. Humans were weak, but she should be able to live thru that fall...peering down to the ground below and then back to the small girl's lithe frame, Kai reconsidered that assessment. However, the point was that he understood that daydream like expression on her face.

It was a longing he felt tug at his own instincts. To return to the dense forestry from whence he came. He knew he had a longing to return to a forest, but he did not know which one, fir he could not remember the place of his very first birth into the land of the living. He had no home, just a temporary territory he would claim in his travels. One he would ultimately give up for another down the road. For the past few years, he had made a small cabin in the snowy woods of the mountains his territory, but as a bird of fire, he needed the warmth of the sun every once in a while. His decision to descend to these woods had ultimately led him to the circumstance that brought him to this tower. Not that he could complain all too terribly, all things considered. He'd met a reptile and a young kind girl in the process.

He'd no idea what she was giggling about, but when she offered him another slice of the apple, Kai instead took the whole apple from her hand. Ridiculous. He didn't need to be spoon fed. Perhaps he was just being stingy or prideful, but so be it. How this girl wasn't afraid of him was a mystery. Even if he were in a weakened state, most humans inherently feared him. They could sense his magic. This girl, however was either blind to it or braver than Kai had given her credit for. And that earned her some brownie points. As he ate the apple, he felt his strength replenish and the heat course through his body. Sitting in the sunlight definitely also helped and he knew it wise to have made a perch here. Soon he'd enough energy to cloak himself a human skin. Maybe. He was still wary of how the girl would react.

When-ever Rapunzel glanced out of the window of her tower down to the Forest below, she felt a longing that she was missing out on more then her mother led on. She wanted to leave, but, her mother would never take her, and, she was too young to go by herself. Besides for some reason, her mother was a lot more protective, and, a sort of anger grew when-ever she asked or hinted about leaving the tower for even just a few hours. It wouldn't stop her from dreaming about any of this stuff though, she always wondered and probably always would.

Sometimes at night, she had these odd flashes in her head of a place that wasn't her tower, and, people that weren't her mother looking at her. She had no idea what it meant, but, it was always just a dream anyway. But, there was also a strange feeling that she felt about the place in that dream. That maybe it was more then a dream. Even though she had no idea where it was, or who those people in it were. This tower was her home, and, her mother was her family. That was all she knew, she had enough in here that she needed, and, that was all she truly needed to know. She'd met a nice bird, who she was sure wasn't going to stay forever, but, at least it was a cute bird, who had a place to stay while it was injured.

Rapunzel couldn't hide the giggle that came out when she looked back at the bird. She offered him some more apple, but, her eyebrows rose as the bird seemed to take the whole apple from her at once. She shrugged and just ate the one piece that she had in her hand, before glancing around the tower. She would usually have a fear of things from the outside world, but, this was just a bird. It's not like it was a person out there, hunting to cut her hair for the magic powers of it. Rapunzel was trying to be brave despite her fear, because she was normally stuck here a lot of the time on her own, since her mother spent most of her days in the Forest itself. Rapunzel sighed softly as she sat on the sill of her window, while she let the bird do what it had to do while eating the apple.

She really was a strange human, Kai could only think again and he watched her forlorn the forests beyond her window. The thought seemed to repeat itself in his mind, so it really was no wonder he became so intrigued with her. Had she never heard not to feed a wild animal? That the wilderness was a savage place fir a girl so naive? Then again, it must have been this tower that kept her so closed off from the world. Like a caged little bird. The thought left a bitter taste in his mouth. Granted, Kai had been the one to enter the tower, but he hadn't thought anyone to live here. For both their sakes, perhaps it would be best if he just left. Nothing but trouble and misery seemed to follow the firebird, even when such things were not his intent. He did not want to cause the girl any grief; she had been kind enough to feed him and allow him perch on her window.

A window, which, was basked in the high afternoon sun. His wings felt blissfully burning as the sun touched them. Small flames danced upon them and the firebird was confident that he'd gained enough of his strength back. Not without some amusement, he noticed as that small chameleon seemed to back away from him. Smart lizard. He should been wary of him from the start. He could not transform with the girl standing right there, in fear of hurting her. Instead, the firebird took flight again and landed himself in the center of the room, a good distance away from her.

Transforming was painful, but he had grown accustomed to it over the years. It was swift to the point where he did not mind so much. His body seemed to burn away for a moment and an avian screech left his beak before there was nothing but a flame. He was careful to control the heat so that nothing in the tower burned along with him. That flame then took the shape of a human male, taller than she and a head of blonde hair. He was adorned with a crimson cloak, his feathers decorating the collar where fur would normally be. Kai stood, cautiously. He didn't want to startle the girl more than he probably already did. "Thank you," he said firstly, in a calm and quiet voice, "for the apple."

Rapunzel knew that she was different to most other people in the Forest, mainly because she was locked up in here and had to figure out everything as it comes. But, it wasn't a lot since she was normally alone in this tower, since her mother rarely allowed visitors up here, and, she wasn't allowed down there either. The fact that this bird had found it's way up here, she was desperate to look after it as best she could. She knew that in a sense this was her cage, a small space she was locked up in. While she was still confused about the whole how this bird had found her thing, but, she didn't want it to leave. Because then she'd be lonely. Right now she felt better just by having the bird sitting in this tower.

She felt the sun shining through the window and into the tower. Rapunzel stretched her arms out for a moment as the sun bounced off of them. She hoped that this bird was going to be healed soon, since she didn't like creatures being hurt. Rapunzel let out a small smile as she noticed Pascal backing off a bit from him. Rapunzel reached out and stroked Pascal's skin, just enjoying the feels of his scaly skin. Her gaze went with the firebird as it seemed to fly to another part of the tower.

Rapunzel's eyebrows raised, and, her jaw dropped in shock as the bird was no longer a bird. She gripped Pascal, making sure it was secure. Rapunzel stayed sitting by the window and, couldn't move for the moment, since she was still surprised by what just happened. Looking at the person who now stood there, she had to admit he was actually kind of cute. Not that she was focused on that, especially since she was only 13. “Uh. You're welcome.” Rapunzel said, before she stood up and walked towards him a bit more. “So, what should I call you?” Rapunzel asked as her gaze stayed on her. “I mean this is my tower, so I guess I need to know the name of the stranger that has now turned up.”

She didn't scream. That was actually a welcomed surprise. Most people screamed upon seeing his transformation. Then again, he had made a purposeful point not to make it too incredibly gruesome in front of this young girl, so that could have been a major part of it. Still, the idea that a once-bird could not stand as a human was normally enough to make most people scream of fear. After all, one could never be too careful with strangers in this land and this girl - locked in this tower as she was - should have been doubly worried. Except...she seemed more curious than anything. Intriguing. Perhaps that was her childish naivety coming to light, something he found a bit endearing. Even if her little chameleon didn't seem convinced. That, above all else in this rather uncanny situation, amused the firebird perhaps the most. The way that little reptile glared at him, as if he could actually make a difference. It was adorable and perhaps a bit insulting to all Kai was. The little reptile had no idea what he was trifling with. Kai had been nice for purpose; he could have easily chosen not to be. In fact, the bird was still somewhat surprised at himself for not choosing to burn this place to the ground. It all had to do with his child, he knew. He wouldn't be able to bring harm to her. Not while she kept looking at him with such innocent curiosity.

What should she call him? That was a good question. Ironically, she'd been the first to ask him that. Most people came up with monickers for him as soon as they saw him. None were too kind, of course. Things like "the Harbinger" or "Spirit of Vengeance." No one had ever stopped to ask him what he wanted to be called. Well, none except Gerda. Ironically enough, he was reminded of her in this child. Perhaps he ought to fly once more to Arendelle and check up on her. He doubted the woman would greet him, but he should...before...never mind. Now wasn't the time or place. He looked at the young girl and answered, "Kai. I am called Kai." He wouldn't ask for her name in return; he didn't want to frighten her. Besides, Kai doubted he'd return to this tower ever again.

"I am sorry, if I startled you," he then said with a small smile. He figured he owed the girl at least some explanation. "I was being hunted and I needed a safe place to rest. That's when I found your tower. Forgive me, I didn't think anyone lived here." That was the gist of it, anyway. He wasn't sure it was wise to tell her all the details. The firebird already knew he had not been followed, so her tower remained hidden to those who could not fly.

A part of Rapunzel wanted to scream, but, she also knew that if she did it would alert her mother to the tower, and, who knew what would happen to this stranger that was in her tower. Plus it was all too confusing to be scared right now. Her curiousity was strong, and, it was something she didn't really get to explore thanks to the whole isolated from everyone thing. But, she could sense that Pascal wasn't as convinced or impressed by this as she was. Maybe because he was trying to protect her from whatever this was. Rapunzel gave Pascal a look as a way of telling him to be polite, and, don't scare this man off. Rapunzel's gaze then went back to this man who was now in her tower, with a curious and innocent look in her eyes.

Rapunzel awaited an answer to this man about what she was supposed to call him while he was in here. She didn't mind strangers, but, needed to be able to address him as something. She wasn't really one to make up any kind of names for people, so she would rather just wait until she knew what they preferred. Rapunzel walked over to the table, and, put the rest of the apple away, before her attention was brought back to this man when he spoke. “Nice to meet you Kai.” Rapunzel said, giving the man a small curtsey. She wasn't sure it was good to give this man her name, since she still didn't know whether he was bad or not.

“It's ok you didn't.” Rapunzel said, with a small smile. Rapunzel then tilted her head as the man continued to speak. “It's fine. This is a pretty good place to hide if you want to avoid being seen. The fact that no-one thinks anyone would live up here is kind of the point of it. It's why my mother keeps me locked up here.” Rapunzel didn't think she should give the man anymore details besides that at this point in time. All he needed to know was that she was up here, and, not allowed to leave.

A nod and small smile answered her polite curtsey. Quite a little lady, considering she was living in an old tower perched in the middle of nowhere. Which begged the question if she truly lived here all alone. The firebird could smell another scent within the stone walls, a scent of stale perfumes and other nonsense he did not identify on the young girl in front of him. It must belong to some maternal figure, he could only assume. However, that just begged the further question as to where this maternal figure was whence her daughter was speaking to a stranger who'd entered their home uninvited and unannounced. Any parent within their right mind would have stayed near such a young child, surely. Then again, what did Kai know of parenting? He'd no memories of ever having parents of his own and producing kin was not something at the top of his list. All he knew of it had come from watching humans with their own young; vastly interpreted and a case by case basis.

And this was by far the strangest case Kai had come across in a very long while. At least in the instance of the Dark One's childhood, those spinsters had appeared somewhat close to him. The only companion this young girl seemed to have was a temperamental chameleon with a bark tougher than its bite. It was so tempting to roast the tiny creature, but doing so would upset the young girl and Kai did not wish to do that. A girl, whom intelligently did not release her own name. Colour Kai impressed. He would not push the issue, as he very much doubted he would return to this place once he left. Finding this tower had been a stroke of fortune, to begin with.

"This is a pretty good place to hide..."

Kai regarded the girl with a somewhat kind, if not studious gaze. The manner in which she said such a thing told the firebird the girl was very much aware that she thought herself to be hiding from something, too. Perhaps hiding from a many of things. With all the way she did not seem fazed, Kai could only assume this sort of thing was normal to her - the hiding, not the birds who turned into men flying through her window. "Your mother hides you away up here?" Kai asked, a slight lilt of concern laced into his tone. "Why would she ever do that?" There was a fine line between being protective and being paranoid.

The man gazed out the stone window for a moment. "Have you ever been to the stream down there?" he asked kindly. Surely, this girl's mother would at let her play in the grasses below? There was no feeling quite like wind under one's hair...or under one's wings, in Kai's opinion.
