Ten years and two masters pass and all is as it always is, struggling to do her job, and try to stay out of as much trouble as possible.  Then one day, another stranger comes into her life, her master's nephew.  During his stay the manor, Ari can't get over the feeling that something is different about this Vroulk, or human as they call themselves and his kindness towards her is a foreign idea to her.
Soon, Ari will be in for the surprise and adventure of her life, where she will come to question all she has ever known in her life, both free and enslaved, Her journey will be one of turbulent skies and learned acceptance.

@Bigger_On_The_Inside  @aishafahaudhri it's a mix up of Afrikaans actually. Although I am uncertain of the correct pronunciations  though

@IcEandStOnE fledging is the process of a bird's maturing to the point where they can fly. It's sort of like puberty for birds. And a fledgling (with the l) is a bird (pavox) that is undergoing said changes

Really well done, I like how you slowly reveal what the world is like. You kept a clear picture in my mind while the plot still played out completely uninterrupted. I think this was really, really well done!!!

So... what exactly are Pavox? Are they being held captive by humans? It's an interesting story so far, but I am really confused

@LauraAnimalgirl sorta kinda,  keep on reading :) (if you like it that is) also I think all birds feet are considered talons even if it's a song bird.
