Antiphony wasn't like the other girls. That was clear. So-called ‘normal’ girls ran around the meadow picking flowers. Antiphony liked to venture deep into the woods. She'd often venture far from the village, going on adventures.

One day she saw something through the trees, high in the sky. "A flying whale!" she said, eyes filled with awe.

She followed the creature until she came to a broad, uncrossable river. From that clearing, she watched the graceful air-whale float out of sight, humming a deep reverberant tune all the way.

"I'll find you again," she promised. And someday, she would.
