Astraeus had gone hunting, leaving Haikal to himself among the great stone pillars and floating islands. The young man had brought his guitar and was now sitting on a piece of a fallen column. He was bent over the instrument and his fingers ran deftly across the strings. The soft music floated up and around him. The notes danced with the wind, taking great happiness in their short life before they faded away, only to be replaced by others. The islands floated lazily by and every now and then left Haikal in their shadows for a minute of two. But he didn’t really notice as he was caught up in his music. That was until another shadow ad a buffet of wind caught his attention.
Haikal looked up to see that his Elemental had finally returned. Astraeus grinned at him as he landed. “Come, Haikal!” He stood and moved his guitar to his back.
“Where are we going?”
“Anywhere I suppose.” Astraeus thought for a moment. “Ah! No, I know where we’re going to go.”
Astraeus hummed happily. “You’ll see.”
Haikal rolled his eyes and clambered up onto Air’s back. He held on as the dragon took off. He let go and watched the lands and water below them pass by. It took him awhile, but he finally realized that they were headed to the Life Lands. The young man didn’t comment though and merely enjoyed the flight. They skirted around the mountains and were soon in Life’s territory. Astraeus landed and Haikal got off his back. He looked about him then to Air. “Now what?”
