This Is a Work of Fiction

21. The first bird of her flock that Lizawhite saw was her teacher, Cleowhite. She looked sad and forlorn. That changed as soon as she saw Lizawhite. Suddenly the whole flock was crowded around Lizawhite. She was surrounded by happiness. Before she could find Robwhite, she heard a whistle and looked around to find him. They all danced a happy dance.

After all the news had been exchanged, Cleowhite, of course, wanted to see the pool of water in the far off place. The flock would have many choices of places to fly off to if anything flushed them out of their home and they discovered that they couldn’t go home. Everyone knows that sometimes you just can’t go back home.

Later as they made the long journey together, and when it was just the two of them all alone, Lizawhite trustingly confided her biggest embarrassment to her teacher. Cleowhite was sure that the consumption of the magic flower should have been avoided and it was surely the direct cause of Lizawhite’s episode with ‘The Go’. It would have been, if anyone had seen, one of the worst things that ever have happened to Lizawhite who thanked goodness that it didn’t really cause her humiliation and shame, just only the awful pain.

And of course, Cleowhite, being the knowledgeable and wise ruler bird that she was, was very understanding but she had to smile, and laugh just a little. Lizawhite enjoyed the laughter so they laughed together as they journeyed on. And of course, Cleowhite also wanted to see this place where the magic flower had grown.

As they stood looking at the magical flower’s cut-off stem still sticking out of the ground, Cleowhite told Lizawhite that the wondrous flower might make another bloom sometime in the future from roots that were still planted in the soil. They both agreed that it would be a very, very bad idea to eat a magical flower if ever they were ever lucky enough to see one again.

This second trip to her pool of water was much easier for Lizawhite. Cleowhite stood and watched as Lizawhite walked down to the water’s edge. It was in nearly the same exact place where Lizawhite had tasted the water when she was here before.

Then they both saw it at the same time. Growing in a shadow was a magical flower that was blooming in the daylight! It was quite similar to the flower that Lizawhite had eaten!

Cleowhite chuckled and almost cackled as she declared to Lizawhite, “The kindred flower that opens its bloom during the daytime also tastes too spicy”.

As Cleowhite looked from the flower back to Cleowhite’s face, she realized that Cleowhite had made the same mistake that she herself had made. She realized that Cleowhite was speaking from her own personal experience. The thought of her teacher going through the embarrassing sounds, the upchucking and the going made her burst out laughing. They both had a good laugh there beside Lizawhite’s pool of magical water, a new source of clean water for her flock.

Cleowhite spoke of the magical flowering plant and how it lives on another plant, the Oak Tree. When we see this flower, we know that acorns will fall at the end of summer. Cleowhite said, “This is a very magical place. You’ve done well, Lizawhite.”

And they lived happily for a while.
