I glanced sidelong at her, over and over again as we walked towards one of the small local restaurants to grab lunch. The infamous WindShadow looked like a 15 year old boy. At least a foot shorter than me, a NEWBIE. Not the least bit intimidating looking. LATE for our first meeting. But she was a girl. And she had to be older than me. WindShadow was famous for having an unusually long run for a Gwarcheidwad that was still going strong. 20 years. Usually, we top out at around 15~20, and by the time you hit 20 years, you should be coming to the end of it. Tired and worse for the wear. At least, that's what the creatures I deal with say. Maybe it's all a lie. I've never actually met another one before.
"So you're WindShadow, right?"
She sighed deeply and stopped walking. Tewa watched the larger and older Wind Spirit nervously. She turned to me; her Wind Spirit turning with her. But where the Spirit looked amused, she looked annoyed, "I'm Logan."
Eee. I'm so glad that I was able to help with the name. Now that I look at it this way, the name does fit her rather well. She really needed a very strong name to match her boyish looks, and I think Logan really worked well for her.
I like the idea of the Wind Spirits as well, and the fact that Logan's is so much larger and possibly more intimidating than Tewa's little parakeet (bird thing).
This is starting to look interesting. I'd like to see more of this story here.
I'm glad you like the wind spirits! I think they'll be fun. And I love the big-bad-ass Wind Spirit with the itty-bitty gender-confusing Gwarcheidwad. Then the tall and beautiful (but young) girl gets the ickle lil' Spirit.
Heehee. Sorry if it hasn't been obvious, "Tewa" is the name of the smaller wind spirit, not the girl (I'm still debating her name).
You will be seeing more of it. I'm planning to do a comic with the Doctor Gwarcheidwad and his fire-based Spirit over Turkey-day weekend.
