“Shhhh, duck. Don’t let them see you.”

“They can’t!” Trineer scoffed. She fluttered closer to land on the wooden fixture hanging over the light. Heat poured down upon her delicate skin. She tucked her wings in closer to her body and crawled further to poke her head over the edge.

“I’m gonna tell mom if you don’t come back.”

“Hush Gerinn!” Trineer felt her heart pounding. Below the music volume grew. She could see waves vibrating through the air making the dust motes dance. “It’s soooo beautiful.”

“Ah, too loud. I’m going.”

Trineer didn’t look back. She sighed and dreamed.

  1. A lovely take on the prompt..even the birds day-dream to music. Well done!

  2. Music can have that effect on everyone, and not just humans 🙂

  3. Ah, so wistful. Beautifully done.

  4. gahlearner permalink

    Elves or fairies love music, too. Beautifully told.

  5. Such a charming tale. We don’t know what they are and it doesn’t matter… they, or one of them, is a music lover!

  6. I like the fact that we have no idea what these creatures look like yet we pay attention. Nice job, Laurie.

  7. Birds, fairies or just plain old mosquitoes? Doesn’t matter really, the emotions are always the same.

  8. The two different viewpoints of the winged creatures are very appealing and well-written. Nice and different take on the picture, Laurie.

  9. Dear Laurie,

    Lovely little story. In reading the comments, I see that some saw them as birds…I thought flying aliens. Either way, they’re music lovers and that’s what counts. Well done.



    • Hi Rochelle

  10. A lovely wistful read.

  14. Sarah Ann permalink

    Such great characterisation – a typical sibling relationship – and picture on their differences.

  15. An artistic, romantic bird. Very nice.
