Me and Essix looked at each other, and a smile spread across my face. Okay, maybe my birthday wouldn’t be so bad after all. “Essix...” I said in disbelief. “And may I just say, you have always been my favorite great beast.” The falcon puffed her chest proudly, taking in the compliment.
Suddenly, she hopped onto my shoulder, her talons gripping hard for balance. “Okay,” I said supprised, “I wasn’t expecting that, but you do you.” I headed back up the trail way I had came, unsure on how I would break the news to my mom. Okay, I had gone out for a walk because I was butt hurt about her forgetting my birthday. Then, I summoned a great beast who was now perched on my shoulder. Sounded plausible.
Entering my house, Essix squawked, and her squawk sounded rather sassy. My guess was that she didn’t like being inside, and I could feel her discomfort.
“We can go back out in a minute,” I whispered to her, “first my mom needs to know about you.” I could hear her ruffle her feathers, as if to say well hurry up.
“Hey mom!” I yelled.
“Yes Skylar?” She responded, down the hallway.
I walked over to the room her voice was coming from, and found her hanging up her phone. She looked at me, and her eyes widened.
“You summoned a spirit animal?” She asked enthusiastically. I could see her squint at Essix. “Is that a gyrfalcon?”
“Mom, this is Essix,” Essix then nipped at my ear, trying to get me to hurry up. “Um, I think she wants to go back out.”
My mother looked at the falcon in amazement. “You summoned a great beast? But it’s been hundreds of years since anyone has summoned one...”
“We’re going to head out, okay?” I said, as Essix squeezed my shoulder in a silent gesture telling me to leave. My mom nodded, and I quickly walked out. Essix spread her wings and lept into the air, circling above me. The sunlight illuminated her feathers, making them glow. “I’m heading over to my friend, Mayah’s!” I called up at her. “When I get there, feel free to show off. She has a hawk spirit animal.” Essix screeched down, seemingly happy at a chance to show off in front of another bird of prey.
