Fly away…a short story part 1

My brother’s and I are warriors we can tell the seasons by the placement of the sun ,moon and stars. He say we have powers to fly away back into the bush. To see the sunshine of our homelands again we lived by the waters. I heard the wise man say the pale man is coming over the sea on a big fish to take us from our mother lands. And just like the birds of prey were going to fly away so we spent lots of time on learning how to deal with the spirit in trance and fly with our ancestors. He say when they come he is going to be with birds way up high so the pail man could not see him. So I asked him how did he know he said his great granddaddy daddy came from out of the fire to warn his people. To go further into the bush to escape the pale man. Many years later before the sun went down we saw what looked like a big, big fish swooshing through the waters with a mighty rushing wind. We remembered what the wise man said so we started to call on our ancestor why everyone looked in amazement. Oh ancestor’s from near and far help us to fight and protect our lands. As the wave hit the shores of our lands they got closer and closer so me and many of the warriors stood in the middle of them and the village we called home. When the big fish stopped we saw the pale man and attacked them but his magic was not like anything we had ever seen. Lots of our warriors died we couldn’t fight the magic so they took us young boys an men put there magic on our feet and hands and took us away. As they hit and beat us then fed us to there big fishes and then we started to move an go further and further away from our home. One bye one we started to go into a trance closed are eyes an saw our ancestors hands and heard a faint voice saying its time to fly away…….D.D. Kirkland
