5. Friend of Birds - by Imhiriel

The vet inspects the budgerigar's broken wing, his gentle hands and voice soothing ruffled turquoise feathers.

Twinkling eyes regard the little girl. "She will fly again, strong and fearless as before."

The girl leaves presently with her father, reassured as her pet.

In the practice, the kindly, unassuming vet also seems gone. Holding the bird is a lord of dignity and power.

The budgie is not in the least alarmed. She merely blinks slowly, cocks her head, nibbles tenderly at the fingers still caressing her.

And only she hears the soft voice murmuring, "Yavanna watches over us both, my friend."
