Introduction

If you lay down and die,
I will fly up to heaven and bring you cak down.
No one will cry;;
We'll save those tears for tomorrow.

Your Mom died last week.
Your Dad never cared about you. He drove off the day your Mom died with all the money.
You are alone.
You stand alone in a squat little graveyard, looking down at a stone.
Your Mom died last week.
There's nothing to do- nothing to say -Just, go on with your day. Go to school. Maybe an Orphanage will take care of you if you're lucky.
It's unlikely anyone wants you.
When you look up, with dull, stinging eyes- Oh, you forgot, you were crying, remember? - and, that's when you notice them.
The birds. All around you.
But why were they here, watching you with stone black, gold, or amber eyes?
One Caw!, one Whooooo?, a screeeeeaah of an eagle, or maybe a hawk.
It's all black for a minute, then you feel them sprout from you- wings, feathers, in all places.
You are a human bird.
Image
The thing is- if you have lost something, or someone, special, and have nothing left, the birds... They find you. These are not..."normal birds", technically speaking.
The government wanted to try and stop all criminal activity- be it poaching, etc. - so, they created a set of genetically human altered birds.
These are, in a way, still...humans. But... Then again, they aren't. Wings. Feathers. Bird eyes. A group of feathers on your rump that forms a tail. You have...the form of a human, though, my friend. You have, the body of a human. But everything else is bird.
So, basically, the first of these birds were people- only, the scientists of Area 51, they...they made the first of these great mutations. Yet...these birds rose up and killed everyone. Everything. Out of anger; out of despair for their loved ones...
Yet, sometimes, regular humans are allowed to live. There is only one City left standing in the world...
And that, my friend, just so happens to be the City of New York.
People still have a form of government- one president, a ruler. He tries to lock us up. That's why...there's a force-field around the city. Yeah.
If they find you, they lock you up in an exhibit at a local zoo. Because that's what you have become. An animal.
Image
Think it's grand around here? Not really. We just have a lot of Wild land in North America now. Maybe a few abandoned, old ruins of cities we could live at. But no. Not really. If you're looking for "The Wild", here's your place. But, being super-human natural birds, heh, we can go wherever we want, do whatever we want. The Flock have a certain place they usually stay, and that would probably be where all their nests are lined and made. It's in the shade of many trees and is well hidden, and you can only get in and out of the camp by flying out through the trees; walls were built up around the safe place.
New York yeah, it's more complicated with that. Malls, Shopping Centers, Hotels, Houses, The President's House(Did you know he has a whole room in there made for the human birds? He is rather fond of their pain...) Fast~Food places, Gamer Stores, The Movies... Everything is in New York.

The force-field was large and complicated-- a blue dome above the city. Zilch cooed at it for moments, and rustled awkwardly over through the grass with her talons to a bush beside the Dome. A small, prickly bush-- but under it was a secret tunnel where The Flock had found a 'break in the ice', as she called it.
forgot it was so small. She smirked as she neared the city. Compared to their belongings, there was no freedom for that lonesome place. But here-- here was free where the sky towered over your head like a giant sign that screamed 'FREEDOM THIS WAY!' and the wind rustled against you and it was amazing and she just--
Losing it again.. She grumbled to herself, peering up at the sky again.
I wonder if anyone will find me.
