TEASER TUESDAY!

DREAMWALKER
(Rider's POV)
fandoria

As the day wore on, the desert gradually gave way to lush green fields filled with colorful flowers.  Instead of plateaus, I found myself surrounded by tall, round hills.  The further I went, the taller they grew, and the more jagged.  Mountains.  I’d heard of them, but this was the first time I’d seen anything taller than the plateaus that surrounded my village.  Father often spoke of them.  He’d spent his vision quest in the mountains and whenever Chief Bear wanted to send a hunting party there, Father was among the first to volunteer.  He returned every chance he got.  But he’d always left me behind in the care of the village squaws.  Nothing he’d described had prepared me for seeing the mountains with my own eyes. 

 A blanket of green covered them from the shoulders down.  Above that, patches of white contrasted against the hard, sharp stone.  The peaks rose so high they touched the clouds.  I wondered what the clouds felt like.  Were they as soft and fluffy as they looked?  If I reached the mountaintops, could I step onto them and walk across the sky, seeing the world as the eagle does?

Thank you! I have a hard time getting his voice right on the first try, but this was one of those times when it just came right away.
