There was no sky, no sun, no moon, no stars. Ornea had only been back home in Wind Reach for seven days but it was getting at her to live in caves inside the mountain all the time and not under the free and open sky. She felt closed in, shut in like a bird in a too small cage, with too little air and too little light, too little room to move.

This wasn't true of course. But she felt like it was.

Out, she had to get up and out. If even just for a short time, she needed to breathe. It was evening. The stars, she thought, they were still up there on the sky and she could still watch them. Her thoughts went to Edward Lucis, who she had worked for in Lhavit. She had like the old gadgeteer and she actually missed him. All the time she had been there she had worked so hard, spent so much time in the workshop, and with Edward and all his fascinating ideas. She had been learning astronomy in order to work at their telescope project.

The intense partylife in the city hadn't meant anything to her. She had been looking for ways to deal with her overgiving injuries, not to add drugs to her magic addiction and get totally wrecked. Work, hard work, had helped her focus her mind and stay clear. Her job and old Edward had been the stable point she had held on to. She was feeling increasingly nervous now when this wasn't available anymore.

Cool down Ornea, cool down, she thought to herself. It will be just fine. You are home. You are needed here in these hard times of Wind Reach. You just need to find your foothold again. Find a new job, get busy, work until all the thoughts stop and you can't hear the sweet, sweet whisper inside.

She reached the courtyard of the sky. The evening was dark. The air was fresh and cold and she wished she had thought of donning warmer clothes. It had been so warn indoors and she hadn't thought of it. Summer was nearly over and it would soon be fall.

Ornea gazed at the evening sky, and a feeling of startled wonderment filled her when the beginnings of a rare and spectacular phenomena started to show in the darkness. First there was only a single shooting star, but it was followed by more, and soon it looked like a skyfall of thousands of shooting stars, falling like a rain of small lights over the world. Finally, the stunned Inarta watched what looked like balls of fire explode loudly, high above.

Ornea had no idea how long she stood there watching, until it was over.

For a moment it was totally silent.

Then she became aware of the other Inarta who had come out to watch. She had been so overwhelmed by what she had experienced that she hadn't noticed that other people had joined her. Maybe they had stood there as silent, immovable and awed as she had been? She looked around; it was good to feel that she was among her own people and had shared this wonder with them, and the silence afterwards.

Nobody spoke. All she heard was the small sounds of their steps, and her own, when all they started to move, like birds in a flock taking off at same time, and returned into the mountain
