It was up so high that she could only make out a silhouette, but when Kino tilted her head toward the softening clouds she was met with the sight of one extraordinarily large pair of wings amidst several smaller Vs. Leaving an impression almost more dragon-like than bird-like, either way, it was stimulation enough.
The traveler leaned forward on the polished handlebars of her parked motorrad. “Well then Hermes, are we ready to get moving?”
With a brief double take at the sky before departing, she thought she saw the shape of a person on the back of that large bird — but it must have been a trick of the eye.
