Seventh Crash [Voice/Action]

[Up, down, up, down. That's the way wings are supposed to work, right?]

[Grandpa said something like that. About how the top of a wing curves and the bottom's straight to create a difference in air pressure. And lift. Flying. Airfoils and angles of attack. The weird book said something like that, too, but he can't read all the words. There's some pictures though. It's sitting open a few feet away.]

[The boy (about age five) peers down over the top of a large hill. It's a long way down, but heights aren't scary at all. The only tricky part is he still doesn't get all this 'Luceti stuff'. He's never seen it on any map (is it on the other side of the Highlands?), and despite all the new sights (gardens, nice monsters, nice weather, green grass) and people, he needs to head back home. Mom'll be mad. Really mad! If it wasn't for that, he'd stay and poke around a little longer. It seems like a neat place. Maybe he can come back.]

[Up, down, up, down, up! What'll everyone think of these? Two blue wings right on his back. Like a bird's.]

[Ginji squats close to the ground, flapping as hard as he can. It's a long hill. Surely it'll be enough time to get them working okay. He chews his lower lip, pulling a pair of goggles down over his eyes (you're supposed to wear those!), and takes a deep breath.]


Rocket Tower, this is S'erra Hotel Echo-- Um... Roger Iemon Delta Alf-Nova Zero Zero One! Preflight check complete! All systems are normal and green! Ah, er...well okay maybe they're not green 'zactly but they're all doing okay! Wind? Check! Wings flapping? Check and double check! Lunch? Sandwich! Ready for takeoff!!

[Jumping up a little, Ginji stretches his arms and legs out, still flapping determinedly.] Readyyyyyy??? Are you, are you? Okay! Go!!!

[And there he goes, running down the hill. Down, down, down, faster faster faster fasterfasterfast--]





[...Uh-oh.]
Ahhhh!!!

[The cherry tree hill. Easily one of Estelle's favorite places in Luceti. It hadn't taken her long to discover it existed and she liked to come by here every now and then. It reminded her of Halure, and was a peaceful getaway from her sometimes rambunctious housemates and the general bustle in the village.

Or... usually anyway.

Estelle is walking up the hill when she hears screaming. Eyes going wide, she quickly runs in the direction of the screams, only to find a small boy.]


Oh my goodness! Are you all right?!

[--Whompf! Fwsh fwsh fwshhh...!]

[The child tumbles the rest of the way down the hill, landing in a tangle near the bottom with the wind practically beaten out of him. That's not what's supposed to happen. Flying isn't meant to hurt so bad.]

[Crashing maybe...]

Y-yeah!
...Maybe. [He lifts his head slowly off the grass, his goggles all askew.] I think I did it wrong.

[Coming up beside the little boy, Estelle quickly kneels down in the grass. She sees the scrapes and cuts and instinctively puts out her hands as a warm glow surrounds her.]

Here, I'll heal you.

[The light then transfers to the boy in the form of healing magic. A First Aid arte.]

[Heal him? Is she a doctor?]

[Ginji's eyes just grow wider and wider as the soft light gets bigger and brighter. It's almost like her hands are candles! He's not too sure what's going on, but his knees aren't stinging so much anymore and his leg's stopped bleeding.]


What is that?! [He's heard stories before, but never--] Your hands're glowing! Like you're holding fonstones or something. But you're not...

[And now he's glowing! How's that happening?]

I'm using healing artes. It's magic to help you feel better.

[As Estelle explains, the magic does its work and soon the light fades.]

There! How is that?

You mean like when people use fonons to attack other people? Only you're not. [Ginji holds an arm out to look at it curiously as the glow starts to disappear.]

[He continues looking at his arm, turning it over once or twice, even though it's clear the "magic" is gone. Finally he nods.]


Good! And it don't hurt anymore neither. Thanks a lot!

I don't know! People just said they put up a barrier that even Pops can't break. They're wrong though, he can get through anything. The barrier people are the ones who gave us the fake wings though, eh.

Still's silly, though... You'd think they'd get bigger!

[He thinks she's being serious about his balance flying. But even if he misses the joke, the grin's encouraging.] Mhm! I want to fly more'n anything else! It's really hard, though. Prolly why it didn't work this time.

Yet said bush's valiant sacrifice was not in vain! What could have been serious injury was reduced to a mere few scratches and bruises, and a short time after landing Susanne catches her breath enough to speak. ]

Ah, yes... I believe so. Goodness, I'd forgotten how quick you children can be! [ They're probably more durable than she is herself, but it's better to be on the safe side. Mother hen mode is a-go. ] You're not bleeding anywhere, are you dear?

[ While Susanne may not have a first aid kit or gels handy, she does have a handkerchief to dab at Ginji's scrapes with. None look serious, so that should do until they return to the village. ]
It's quite all right. Though next time you may wish to be a bit more careful so as not to worry your grandfather.

[ Speaking of that... There doesn't appear to be any other adult in attendance. That's not surprising if only one or two were looking after him. Why, their own army of maids and servants frequently lost track of Luke just inside the manor. ] Does he now? Hm... Perhaps there is some truth to what he says. [ Once the bleeding stops, she carefully gets to her feet and offers both hands to Ginji with a laugh. ] Let's go find your grandfather, shall we?
