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.  But with a little trust and willingness, anything is possible... even love.

I didn't quite get what fledging really means to them. What would change from them? Aren't they going to just be bigger and have another type of wing, but still become a slave? I mean, what does fledging do to make her happy in this moment

@SoultaleAsriel not spay and neuter, but they would sometimes clip their wings/ claws and file their finger patches (used for grooming)
Your telling me they spay and neuter them? That's low as hell! Back when slavery was still legal in places like America and Britain, even the whites knew it was stupid and uncivil to spay or neuter their slaves!

Pavox, and yeah, at least certain areas do. Because they have attributes typical of simple beasts they believe they are inferior to them.
