Silverwing: Twilight Night
Chapter 1 Befriending the Bat
A father decided to take his daughter up to Canada on her late eighteen birthday. He thought this would be a perfect time to spend time with his daughter. Before they left Ashley bought the book called Silverwing from the bookstore. She already read it but she loves reading it. She read it three times already before her and her dad made it to Canada. When they got there they set up camp by the lake. He thought this place is perfect for both since she love camping by the lake.
All day they went fishing to catch Bass, hiking up in the woods, riding bikes, swimming in the lake, and got some ice cream from the small store. Later that evening they have smores for their dessert after they have fish for dinner. Her father notices she still reading the book she got before they left home.
"Ash are you still reading that book, did you read it three times already?"
"Yeah I can't help myself. It's really good book. Although I like the TV series but the book is pretty good." Ashley replied. Her dad chuckled.
"What's the book about?"
"It's about these two bats that go on adventure the reach Hibernaculum and they face dangers on their way." She said smiling. She really loves to read books that are adventures, magical, and romance. They continued eating their smores and after that they look up at the sky. There were millions of stars and they can see the Milky Way which makes the night more beautiful.
Then Ashley notices some bats were flying in the night. She thought they were amazing creatures and she even amazed of how they fly at night and their appearance. She very different from other girls because mostly women are afraid of bats get tangled in their hair in which she doesn't believe that. She looks at the big star and wished she can meet the characters from Silverwing and go on adventure. Her and her dad decided to go to bed since its late. They both have their own tent for them to have their own privacy. They get in their pajamas and the went fast asleep.
I woke up to the sound of squeaking in desperately. I rubbed my eyes and thought it was a mouse. I almost went back to sleep and there was that sound again. I decided to see what making that sound. I put my blue sweater, my white shoes on and went outside. It was middle of the night so I bought flashlight to see in the dark. I walk up to my dad's tent and I heard him snoring. I guess he hasn't heard the squeaking noise over his snoring. I whispered to dad if he's awake. All I got respond was his snoring. I went back to my tent to grab a piece of paper and a pen to write a note for him in case if I come back morning or he wakes up.
"Don't worry dad I be back in the morning." I whispered placing my note under his shoes. Then I begin to walk into the woods to find the mysterious squeaking noise. I was a little afraid to go out in the woods but I silently prayed to God to give me strength and keep me safe. I continued walking in the woods and the squeaking was getting louder which means I'm getting close. When I pushed the bush aside I saw a silver box which I recognized it as an animal trap. I pick up the trap and I look inside of it. The inside of it was a small bat.
It was the cutest small bat I have ever seen. I think it's a baby by the looks of it. The bat stops squeaking and looks at me with fear. The bat looks familiar but I'm not sure what it reminds me of. I opened the trap door, it was hard at first to get the door opened but I manage to open it. I looked inside and the bat was still afraid of me. I reach in to try to get it out but it growled at me. I quickly pull my hand back in afraid it might bite me. I'm a little afraid it might have rabies which most people believe. That didn't stop me of helping it. I took a deep breath and look inside the box and spoke softly.
"Hey little fella, I'm not going to hurt you. I want to help and make sure you're not hurt." The bat looks at me and it tips its head as if he in thoughts. I quietly reach in again of hoping not to scare it. To my surprised it didn't growled at me again and it walk up to my hand. I gently pulled the small bat out of the cage. I put the cage down with the bat in my hand. I can tell it was a male by its muscles.
Without hurting it I checked his wings with my thumb to see if it's broken or not. The bat winced as I touched his wings but it didn't try to squirm. I cannot believe the bat really trust me. It doesn't seem it's broken thank goodness. I thought. I opened my both hands and spoke to the bat.
"Can you manage to fly?" On the cure the bat quickly flew out of my hand. I watched the bat continued to fly up into the night. I smiled and waved at him.
"You're welcome!" I called. I looked down at the cage and use my foot to stomp it until it was flat. I took the flat cage and tossed it to the lake. I watched it sink until I don't see it anymore. I don't want any other animals to get trap in it and die. I made my way back to my campground and hoping dad isn't awake when I get there. While I was on my way I heard a familiar squeak noise. I turned around and the bat I save was flying at me.
I gasped of how the bat was close to me. I think this bat a silver-haired bat or silverwing which they were also called. He has a light blue fur with yellow-haired mane. I tip my head to my side and he did the same. I walk a little close to him and I wink at him. He winked back and I giggle a little. It's pretty cute of him winked back. I smiled sweetly and spoke to him.
"Hey fella you welcome again but I need to get back to my campground. So go on shoo." I gently waved my hand. I turned around and started to go on my way.
"Thank you." A voice said. I gasped and looked around to see if someone is here. There's no one here but me and the bat. I turned my around and looked at the bat.
"Did you just say something?" I asked. The bat just looks at me. I sighed in relief. Then it spoke.
"Yes I said something to you and I want to thank you for saving me." I looked at the bat with my eyes huge and my mouth hung opened. I was so shocked that I accidentally drop my flashlight on the ground which rolled into the lake.
"You, you can talk!" I exclaimed. He nodded his head and he rooted on the branch over the lake.
"Yeah I can talk and I'm very surprised you understand me."
"You're a bat. Bats cannot talk." I didn't want to believe this is happening.
"You're talking to the bat so that counts right?" He smiled enjoying my reactions. I still didn't want to believe it. Okay Ashley this all a dream you need to wake yourself up. I thought. I quickly went to the lake and dump my whole head in the cold water. I jolt back up gasping. I nearly forgot the water can get very freezing when its night times. I wipe my face off with my hand to get the water off. I walked up to the bat that saw everything and have an amused look.
"Go on say something." I want to make sure this is the entire dream. The bat couldn't hold his laugh and he use his hand to prevent his laughing.
"That was funny do it again." He laughed. So this isn't a dream. This is real. Oh wow. I thought. Then I smiled, this is amazing I always wanted to talk to animals. That's my childhood dream. I guess dreams come true after all. The bat flies up to me and landed on my opened hand.
"Why do you save me and destroy that box?" He questions pointed at the lake that I throw the trap box at.
"Well I don't want to see you suffering and other animals suffered so I need to destroy it. Beside it's very old and it's forgotten. "I added. The bat took off and rooted on the same branch. I walked up to where he's rooted.
"You look pretty small to be a bat." I said looking at his side.
"I'm a runt and thank you for you compliment." He says in sarcastic.
I didn't mean to offend him that way.
"Look I'm sorry I didn't mean to offend you." He sighed and said it was alright. I can tell him not feeling better by his body language. I decided to change the subject.
"My name is Ashley what's yours?" I introduced.
"Oh, Shade. Shade Silverwing." No wonder he looks familiar. He's from the book or should I say the TV series by his appearance. So I'm in Silverwing then. My wished came true. This is really weird but awesome at the same time. I look at my watch and realized its 2 am. I really need to get back to my campground and get some sleep.
"Hey Shade I really need to go back to my campground. I need some sleep and I don't want my dad to find out I'm gone." I said but Shade went up to my face before I started my way.
"But we just met." He protested.
"I'm sorry Shade but…"
"Oh come on Ash just five more minutes. I have so many questions." He gives me a puppy eyes and it is hard to say no by his cute puppy eyes. I rolled my eyes and sighed.
"I'll tell you what; you can keep me company while we head back to my campground so you can come visit me tomorrow night." Shade thought a moment and he nodded and smiled. We went our way back to my campground. On our way there he asked me some questions of what humans do, eat, sleep, blah blah blah. I did my best explaining to him what humans do and how there not bad. I was glad the moon was out or else I couldn't see anything in the dark. Since I lost my flashlight in the lake. I feel we've walked and flying since Shade fly for three hours.
"I think were lost we've been going around the circle." I said looking around the woods.
"If you tell me what your camp looks like maybe I can look up and find it." He offered. I thought it was pretty good idea and thoughtful of him. I nodded and told him what the camp looks like. Then he flew up and looked. By a minute later he came down with a grin on his face.
"Found It!" I was relief we made our way to where Shade spotted. When we got there I have disappointment look. This is not my camp. The tent looks old and there's so many weeds growing everywhere.
"Shade, this is not my camp."
"Are you sure? I found the tent as you described it." He said making sure.
"Are there two tents we see?" I tested him. He looked around and then he finally understood.
"Oh, my bad." He laughed sheepish.
"Oh never mind I can sleep here. Let's explore here for a little. This place looks abandoned and we can find some cool stuff that can be helpful". Shade and I begin exploring and I was right this place is abandoned. The tent is covered with dusts and spider webs. I look inside and there was one old-fashioned bed that people use in Africa while camping. Maybe I can find the flashlight that I can replaced with my lost flashlight. I scanned around the room to find it. While I was looking I didn't see Shade rushed in the tent and he almost bonked me.
"Shade what's wrong?" I asked. He has the fear look in his eyes.
"There's a monster. Covered in a blanket." I look at him like what are you talking about. He face replaced from fear to annoy of me not believing him. Then he flew over to me and he pulled my hair with his feet.
"Come on you have to see it."
"Ow, ow okay okay!" I cried. We both went out to the tent to see this "monster" Shade saw.
Authors note: Well what do you think? I thought of writing a story for Silverwing since I thought the show was awesome. I don't own any Silverwing character except OC who she is me. I don't really have the book but its true I read it. I sort of like the TV series better than the book. I'm hoping to read the rest of the series if I find them. Enjoy and please review but no flames. Ps this story is mostly based on the cartoon.
