The next half turn passed by in a blur for Halley. Silon and Antel’s behaviour in training was not as overt as it had been with Fargo, but that made it easier to conceal.
The three faced their last test. Halley knew her individual maneuvers were flawless as she exited out of them and caught the updraft to join Antel in the middle of the air, while Silon caught the downdraft to do the same on the other side. She regulated the speed of her ascent to synchronize with the speed of Antel’s descent as they pulled up level with Antel in unison and switched to a floating position. The last move was executed in perfect unison as they regulated their speeds to a controlled descent until they were half a body length from the ground.

As an author, I would love to hear your comments and thoughts. I love writing fantasy stories without magic. I know there are many that say it’s not fantasy unless it has magic, but I disagree. I create new worlds, cultures, traditions, and add intriguing elements, like Aigles in The Welkin.
