Once upon a time there was a girl name Ahriae, but most people called her Airy. She had a tail and her passion was airplanes. This is the story of how she became the youngest pilot ever to fly completely around the world. Don't look at me like that, cinderpaw618! This is a good story. I think you're going to like it.
Sometimes she wondered why she was born with a tail instead of wings. A tail wasn't good for anything, especially not hers. All it did was swing back and forth and get in the way all the time. It just didn't seem fair that some people could just flap their wings and fly away, but she was stuck on the ground. Even at a young age, she knew what she wanted. And she knew where she had to go to get it.
The day that Ahriae became Airy was the same day she discovered her lack of flight. A small five year old girl, pig tails and all, spent much of her time watching birds take off from the ground. For weeks she imitated their movements, flailing her arms and running here and there around the farm in an attempt to take flight. But grown-ups kept informing her that birds had wings and she did not. But Ahriae didn't listen. Instead, she tried to force herself into flight.
On a very windy autumn day, when no one was looking, she climbed to the very top of a hay stack. And then, she jumped. For a short moment, she achieved the sensation of flight. For a split second, she was weightless, suspended in the air. And then gravity caught up to her. She crashed to the ground with a thud and let out a cry. It only took a few moments for her mother to arrive on the scene, only to discover her daughter laughing and squealing with delight as she was climbing to the top of the hay to try it again. Of course, her mother wouldn't have it. Ahriae was banned from the hay stacks permanently, and it was discovered a few hours later that Airy had broken her arm in the flight.
See? I told you it was good! Have I ever lied to you before? ...Don't answer that. Well, seeing as the story is over, I should send you on your way. But here, have a shiny button on your way out.
