Advent Story: Day 19

Federico has been silently listening and watching the Grey Creatures turn from grey to rainbow colours and back again snorts hot air from his nostrils, lifts his head and says “Well its stopped raining at last, I suppose I can take one Grey Creature alongside Coco on my back but that’s it”

The Grey Creatures jostle each other and eventually push the smallest Creature to the front. Federico lowers his head and neck for the nervous creature to climb up onto his back. Their large feet take up most of the room and poor Coco has to cling on to Federico’s mane to stay on board. 

Coco gently enquires the name of her new companion as Federico beats his huge wings and they are off again, soaring above the grey fields and yellow trees. The creature replies “my name is Grey oh and quick turn right at that grey tree”
