Parker Fitzgerald
Birds of a feather

Parker always felt a bit awkward next to Ingrid for some reason. He felt like he was being held to some standard that he didn't fully understand. Still, she always seemed nice, and she had let him borrow that great broom he was able to fly.

Parker listened to Ingrid's story. A broom-back snowball fight! That sounded like a lot of fun, and explained why she was so good on a broom. Lots of practice. Something he hadn't been able to do while he was home, or at least he had been told he wasn't allowed to. He still did, just as far away from anyone as he could find.

Parker didn't know who Theodore was, but it seemed that Theodore was an older brother who probably wasn't at school anymore so Parker wouldn't be able to put a face to the name.

"That sounds like a lot of fun!" Parker said. "Why doesn't the school do something like that for first years to practice their flying? It would work so well, and be a lot of fun."

Parker then thought about how to begin his story about the old man.

"My mom goes on nursing rounds to a Native American reservation, and I got to see my friend there who is an old medicine man. He told me that I seemed different and told me a story about the bird fish. A fish born in the fish world who could fly like a bird. So was caught between both the fish world and the bird world, realizing in the end that both had things for the other. I liked the story, but still don't fully understand everything. Either way, I thought it was cool. He also gave me an eagle feather, he said to help me be more of a bird.”

Parker pulled out the eagle feather from his pocket.

“I know it’s stupid, but it was a nice gift,” Parker said placing it on the table.

        “Maybe we can include it as a training exercise,” Ingrid agreed, when Parker mentioned how much fun a broomstick snowball fight sounded, and that they should do them at school. To her, it was one of... more
