As Bluejay woke up the next day, she could hear something off in the distance. 

She remembered these voices.. but she couldn't remember why..

She tried to pinpoint where they were coming from.

Then suddenly, as she tried to pinpoint the noise, she remembered.

She remembered a warm body pressing again her suddenly becoming cold.

She remembered a strange noise that had came out of the nichelings mouth.

And she remembered what had happened after the nicheling had faded into nothing.

She had been able to open her eyes, a little, on the first day.

And all she saw was a color like the river, but deeper.

Was it... blue?

The blue things had swarmed above her, calling out to each other.

"Look at it.." "It's so strange.." "Huh."

Suddenly, a quiet, but commanding voice spoke out. "Leave her."

The other blue things had, at least from what Bluejay had seen, seemed confused.

"But.."

The quiet blue thing spoke again.

"She... is different. I think... she in one of them."

The confused calls turned into sharp whispers.

"It.. can't be.." "There hasn't been one in so long.."  

Then, one question ended all of the whispering.

"Are... are they coming back?"

This caused all of them to go silent.

Then, the quiet one spoke again.

"... maybe..."

Then, Bluejay's eyes had shut, and she had fallen asleep.

She was sure of it now. it was those voices she heard in the distance, calling to her.
She was able to pinpoint the voices were coming from the north, and she knew what she had to do.

She had to follow them.

Wow, this is wonderful. I love how you're telling a story with Bluejay as the protagonist, and you're showing her thoughts and discoveries.

Thank you!

The next day, Bluejay decided to set on out.

After a little bit, she stumbled upon other one of those colorful things. 

She wondered if she should try to pick one of the yummy things.

Then, remembering how MEAN they had been to her when she was a child, she promptly ignored it and decided to walk past it.

(maybe i forgot to take pictures of a few days? Or it glitched out? IDK, but Bluejay now has 2 lit up gems instead of 1)

After a little bit more walking, she came upon something strange. It was tall and the color of the tops of the grasses. It had many things sticking off of it. She decided to investigate.

She decided she would inspect it in the morning.

The next day, she woke up to the big thing right in front of her. She jumped to the side, startled, and tried to figure out what to do.

She glared at it, trying to see if it would move. When it didn't, she tried talking to it.

"Hello?"

It didn't respond.

With a huff, she decided that the big things wasn't worth her time.S he should be focusing on finding the voices.

She started walking away, but then decided she needed a nap.

When Bluejay woke up the next morning, she felt a rumbling in her stomach. She didn't know why, but she thought it MIGHT have something to do with the colorful things that smelled good.

She decided she needed to find some.

Just as she was taking a step through the grass next to her, she found some!

90334623_Bluejay19.thumb.jpg.0ed3e59e77b288c83b226b34fc677715.jpg

She nommed on some, feeling the rumbling feeling go away, and settled into a peaceful sleep.

The day after that, she picked some more, but they soon ran out.

She tried to reason with it, but when the plant wouldn't listen, she gave up and went on exploring.

Only a short while later (after a nap of course,) she found something else!

It was one of the things in the ground!

She hissed at it, remembering how in childhood they had mocked her.

She lunged, and in one quick motion, dug it out of the ground and had it in her mouth.

She smiled triumphantly, and went on her way.

She sat down for a nap, and woke up to enough plant with yummy things on it!

She gathered more of them, feeling happier than she had ever felt.

Content and full, she settled in for a L O N G nap.

She woke up the next day, feeling refreshed and ready to start adventuring.

She gathered a little bit more, and set out (but with a nap in between, of course.)

1167579707_Bluejay24.thumb.jpg.43abb257e3c0c7bcffd8a760fa3d9943.jpg

As she ventured farther out, she heard a strange growling noise. She didn't know why, but something in her told her to hide.

She made sure to check if it was near her.

She couldn't find anything dangerous, but was happy to find another one of the yummy things in the ground!

It was always a good day when you could thwart your enemy's plans!

(And, if they are delicious, eat them.)

2042911104_Bluejay28.thumb.jpg.9500a25766e1998550b76abd12dd8c13.jpg

Then, when she was exploring the next day, she found something.... strange.

It looked like on of the tall things the color of the grass... but it was shorter.

1516352555_Bluejay29.thumb.jpg.a46ce311cc508fe35b528ad456129fb1.jpg

Suddenly, she felt something inside of her telling her to go on it.

What was it with the thing inside of her always bossing her around!

But still.....

She felt herself climbing up it even though her mind was yelling in protest.

1836380040_Bluejay30.thumb.jpg.657291eadc604877bdbfa36327441293.jpg

And... then she was on top of it.

She felt so free. It was like she was in the sky... like she was on top of the world...

She loved it.

She could feel the thing inside of her pushing to take control, to get out.

And when it did, she let out the loudest, most free sound she had ever heard.

She took a moment to be awestruck at how amazing it felt to call like that.... like she was free.

She settled in for a nap, feeling at peace with herself for once.

The next day, and she woke up, she let out another call, feeling so excited for a new day.

But suddenly.. something popped out of the grass.

Is there a reason the wanderer is all alone? If so, is it important? Bluejay has never really been around any other nichelings until now so would this make her different then if she had? Is she happy to see this stranger or not? idk just some questions that may help jump start the process. Hope it helps!

The new wanderer seems to be super old, and also has lean body and big ears. Maybe he's from the savannah or some other hot island, but somehow landed here. Maybe he could give Bluejay a goal of some kind, like telling her to find his home island, or something more interesting. Also, the food is getting a bit low...

Good points! I'll make sure to think about these, especially the point that she hasn't been around other nichelings before!

The quest is a cool idea! (Maybe he came from the heat island Blujay saw the bluebirds heading toward? More plot!!!)

The food tho ;-;

I do need to gather more.

(Thanks to both of you for the suggestions!)
