The Shoyru That Couldn't Fly
"Oh how I wish I was able to soar with them." SwiftCuddle sighed as she gazed up at her fellow Shoyrus hovering beneath the clear blue neosky. "Must be fun being able to fly around in the sky like that." she thought. After another lonely afternoon of staring up at other Shoyrus at play, SwiftCuddle 'walked' home.
During the 'walk' home SwiftCuddle thought to herself, "I've also got wings. But try as hard as I could, I never seem to get off the ground!" She tried flapping her wings but retracted them again once she realized that she did not succeed on taking off. Now you must be thinking, "How is that possible? A creature born with wings is sure to be made to fly. How come this Shoyru couldn't?"
If you think SwiftCuddle was born like that, you were wrong! SwiftCuddle was once exactly like any other Shoyru. But that was until the tragic accident occurred when she was just 2 weeks old. "I WANT TO KNOW WHY I'M NOT ABLE TO FLY LIKE OTHER SHOYRUS!" SwiftCuddle demanded me, her owner Kireinalight to tell her the reason when she just arrived home. Her petpet SwiftBattie, the Barbat began to hover around SwiftCuddle's head and settled down on it, I believe it was trying to calm SwiftCuddle's anger down. I stared at SwiftCuddle for a moment, let out a small sigh and began to reminisce.
"It was a bright sunny afternoon." I said in the softest voice I could because I didn't want SwiftCuddle's siblings to hear. "I was really excited because I was receiving my very first pet that day, which is you. I have already prepared a petpet to be your own special pal for life." I paused and nodded at SwiftBattie. "I remember when you first fluttered around my head when I got you home." But then SwiftCuddle interrupted surprisingly "Wait! Are you saying that I used to be able to fly?" I replied to her "Just listen. We were having the time of our lives when your siblings joined our family in the next couple of days. But the happy days stopped for a couple of weeks when 'that' happened." SwiftCuddle gazed at me with the most confused look I've seen. "One stormy night," I continued, "Your Barbat got stuck in between the branches of a tree in our neogarden. The lightning was about to hit her but..." Right at that moment, there was an eager look on SwiftCuddle's face. "You rescued her, my dear SwiftCuddle! You sacrificed your ability to fly to save SwiftBattie!" SwiftCuddle gasped and then whispered, "Really?" Then I replied, "Yes... you were struck by lightning when you passed SwiftBattie back into our neohome window to me. That's how you became disabled" Without saying anything, SwiftCuddle walked upstairs into her neoroom.
The next morning SwiftCuddle woke up with a big yawn and a stretch. "So... that's the reason I couldn't fly..." her thought was ended by some loud clanging, clinking noise outside in the neogarden. SwiftCuddle quickly looked up her window and saw the most amazing sight of a small aeroplane engraved with the name 'Swifty' on it and standing beside it was her family. SwiftCuddle quickly ran down the stairs and out the door. "Wow!! Thank you so much!!" I was happy to see the smile back on my little Shoyru again. She has never been so excited since the day when she came into my family. "Now you can fly with your friends" I smiled back at her.
If you thought SwiftCuddle was a strange Shoyru, think again. Even though she's a disabled Shoyru and
couldn't fly, she's still one of her kind and belongs to the same group that other Shoyrus are in.
