Chapter 1 Returning Hibernaculum
I groaned as I enter my room after long day of high school. I fling my backpack on the chair and lay down on the bed. I shut my eyes listening to some winds outside my window. I glance at my nightstand and saw Silverwing book I got when my dad took me to Canada on my late eighteen birthday. I grab the book and flip through pages and looked at the cover. It's been two months since I have adventures with Shade and Marina reaching Hibernaculum before Goth and Throbb can reach there and I have given all the bats a freedom of choice to fly at day or night whatever they pleased. I smiled of that memories and begin missing them. I grab my amulet necklace from my jewelry box and put it on my neck. I wear it most of times but I keep it in my room for safety not wanting to lose it. I touched the necklace and sighed. Zephyr given me this necklace believing Nocturna made this for anyone whose heart is pure. It didn't activate since I use it to return home two months ago. I looked at the calendar and it was February twenty three of winter. I begin thinking if Shade and the colony are awakening from their hibernate and begins to have thoughts of going there again seeing them. I play my amulet looking myself at the mirror. I still have scratch on my cheek from King Remus slapped and I told my family the branch scratches me while I was sleepwalking. I heavy sighed and looked out my window. I didn't have any real excitement since my adventure and I want to start a new fresh one. I thought. I sat down on my bed having my thoughts on my friends wanting to see them again. Suddenly I felt my neck beginning to warm and I saw my necklace glowing. I gasp and grin for I knew I can go see them again. Before I can activate it I grab my black boots and my brown coat to keep myself warm. I cling on my amulet and I felt the strong wind blowing around me making my eyes shut. I felt the cold wind on my face as if I was outside. I opened my eyes groaning rubbing my head. I really need to work on my teleporting and landing. I thought. I look at my surrounding and realized I gotten shrunk again by the look of giant trees. I looked down at myself and I still wore my blue jeans with long sleeves green shirt. I have on when I left making me relief. I smiled excitedly going to see my friends after so long that I rushed in the woods for Hibernaculum. As I reaching there I heard a familiar strumming sound and I glance up and saw Jacques sitting on the branch whistling while he strums his guitar. I couldn't help myself but I sing a little to surprise him. He stops and looks around while scratching his head with his wing. He shrugs and continues strumming. I continue to sing while he strums making him stop and looked around in annoyed. He finally looked down from his branch and I smiled waving at him.
"Well I be gone! Ashley is that you?" He flew down from the branch and landed in front of me.
"Yes it's me Jacques, I thought while you were strumming I sing a little too surprised you." We both embrace for quick second due he has his guitar on his back.
"Yeah that was very good surprised and I recognized that beautiful voice anywhere. Welcome back Ashley!" I giggled happily and look around.
"Where's Sam?" I asked while Jacques shrugged his shoulder.
"I don't know where he is but he told me he will be back later from what he's doing." He replied. I sighed and glance out in the woods.
"Can you tell me where the Hibernaculum is? I want to see Shade and the rest of the colony if their awake from hibernating." Jacques grins his beak and grab my arm with his wing.
"Well what are we waiting for? Let's go to hibernaculum! All the silverwings will be very happy to see you again." Before we make our way we heard the bloody murder scream and saw Sam running towards us with fear on his face. His tail accidently got caught on the branch and he tried to pulls it out desperately.
"Hey hey dude, what's going on?" He asked worried rushing up to him.
"HE'S GONNA EAT ME!" Sam screamed at his face while I glance up and saw giant bat flying towards us with hunger on his face. I gasp as I tried to help Sam getting out from his trap. We manage to get him out but the giant bat was quick enough that he pounce Sam while looking at him hungry. Sam wimped and place his both hands together praying. I was just about to charge at him but then I heard familiar laugh and glance. It was Throbb laughing while he lets go Sam. Sam places his heart with his hand trying to steady himself glaring at him.
"Why do you always do that? I hate it when you do that!" Sam snapped while Throbb continues to laugh.
"Oh it never gets old and you have to admit that was funny. It's fun to chase you around and you make it so hilarious." He laughed wiping his tears off from laughing hard. I smiled feeling happy to see them again.
"Throbb! Sam!" The both glance at me and they were surprised seeing me.
"Senorita!" I rushed to Throbb and hug him while he wrapped his wings around me.
"It's great to see you, but were you on your way to south?" I asked. He heavy sighed and let go our embrace.
"I tried to gain my strength for south but Brutus's owls never help me over the past weeks hunting fish since you were gone and the ices were forming making it impossible to hunt."
"Wha.." Then Sam rushed to me giving me bear hug making me grunt.
"Ashley! It's so great to see you! Where have you been? I knew you were going to come back! I knew it, I knew it, and I knew it! "He was squeezing me so hard that I almost felt my ribs crashing my lungs.
"Sam it's great to see you too but... I can't breathe!" I gasp. He lets go of me while I gasp for air.
"Sorry. It's just been long time since you left." He apologized.
"It's been two months." Jacques corrected him.
"Why isn't Brutus helping you get home, I thought he kept his words." I said. I realized Throbb wings were little frostbite and he almost lost some weight.
"I know I thought he did too but he said something about meeting with King Boreal and it's been doing it since you left." He explained. I didn't know the owls have their own king but maybe I did. I need to reread Sunwing to refresh my memories.
"So you know what the meeting's about?" Throbb shook his head.
"Nobody knows, Orestes just told us his father needs to have a meeting with the King." He shrugs his shoulders. I sighed and glance out of the woods.
"Do you know any silverwings are awake from their hibernating?" He shrugs.
"I don't know senorita but we can find out if they are. I was busy keeping myself warm and hunting some bugs." He spoke with a little hint disgust.
"Then let's go then. When we get there; I'm going have some talking to do with Brutus." Sam and Jacques rushed by us smiling.
"Well don't just stand here like statue and let's get a move on!" Sam scurries up a tree while Jacques flies. Throbb bends down for me to get on his back. I climb on his back and cling his mane like I did with Goth on my last adventure. Throbb took off in the sky with a grunt and we soared in the sky for Hibernaculum. I really miss flying on my last adventure and it felt amazing like always. I look down at the river and have my thoughts on Goth. I remember he was blinded by the sun and Shade's echolocation and was hit the waterfall carrying him to the deep. He tries to drown Shade but I dove at them saving Shade. I remember reaching my hands out to him and he looked surprised of seeing me helping him. The ice came crashing in making me back away with Shade and that was the last time I saw Goth.
"Throbb, do you have any chance finding your brother in law?" He sighed shook his head.
"I haven't seen him since he crashed in the waterfall. I still think he's alive out there. A waterfall can't kill him easily. If he survives the lighting he can survive the waterfall." I sighed and looked ahead. I remember some pine tree we passed by and the two mountains covered in snow. I smiled a little remembering on my last adventure with Shade and Marina. It's been long time since I left home. Do they remember me? They have to. I was in my deep thought that I didn't see Jacques flying by us.
"Excited to see the colonies again?" I sighed smiling.
"You have no idea but I'm little nervous."
"Why are you nervous?" He asked.
"Well what if they don't remember me? What if they forget who I am?" Jacques laughed.
"Ashley how could they possibly forget you? You helped them gain rights of their freedom's choice. It's been spreading out in the north and all the bats are not afraid to go out daylights anymore."
"Amigos were here!" I glance ahead and saw the water fall with small cave attached with the branch hanging above as I remember. I smiled excitedly as Throbb landed me by the lake.
"You should wait here in case if their still sleeping. You don't want to disturb them."
"I understand. I'll wait here admiring the waterfall and the trees waiting for the icicles to break." I sat down while Throbb chuckles. He and Jacques flew up to the hibernaculum while I waited. I use the twig to trace the snow to entertain myself. I really hope the colonies remember me after my last adventure. I couldn't believe it's been two months since I left but to me it's been long time. Suddenly I saw three male bats flying out of the cave and swopping down. I knew it was Throbb and right beside him was Mercury the scout. The third one I couldn't figure out who it is and I don't remember seeing him. As I adjust my eyes as the three got closer my eyes went huge feeling my heart beating with joy that I couldn't help myself but stood up waving.

Enjoy and please review but no flames. Ps sorry this is the short chapter and I'll try to make my next chapter longer if I can.
