Kites
A glittering kite soars gracefully in the air, swishing and dancing in the breeze. It is spurred on by the enthusiastic shouts of the tiny people below, laughing in joy at the heights it achieves. The kite feels pride at making them marvel at its presence. Suddenly, a shadow crosses overhead and the kite turns to spot another floating past it. It pays no mind and continues on it’s path when it feels a tug on it’s string. The other kite had gotten tangled on the rope. The kite notices the other struggling and makes an effort to get unstuck as well, but it is useless. It can feel itself losing altitude and there are now raising voices below, replacing the cheers. The owners of the kites are having an argument, too focused on their squabble to notice them falling to the ground and tearing. The people stop bickering to look at the damage, seemingly going to blame each other again, when a couple of others gathered approach the fallen kites and start to mend them. They share tips and their supplies to quickly finish the repairs, presenting them to the owners who glance apologetically at one another. Glittering kites now soar gracefully in the air, they have scratches of time marked on them but both are certain they will heal, and if the people below would work together again when in need, then they will certainly fly higher than before.
