((Here we gooooo! X3))

Anri heard a thin popping sound, like wet pieces of fruit hitting each other, and her left wing wasn't working any more. She shrieked and tumbled to the ground; she'd only been skimming above the sand anyway, practicing using her wings with long strokes to push her leaps further, but the sand was hot and she tumbled, jostling the wing more and it hurt like hell. It felt dislocated, like Hali's arm when she was seven and fell out of a tree. It had hurt, and Father had said it was because her muscles were pulled out of alignment, and Hali had cried and cried like there was no tomorrow, but it was fixable. Her arm had only needed to be shoved back into its socket.

Standing, her decorative-shawl-turned-head-cover tinkling softly around her head, Anri craned her neck over her shoulder to try to see the base of her wing. Yes, it looked twisted and weird, like the muscles underneath were shifting too far over. She reached up with one hand to try to touch it, to move it, but her arms were too short no matter how she tried it.

She let out a shriek of frustration that turned into a short sob as she squatted to the ground, ignoring the heat of the sand as she rocked back and forth. There was something that looked like water glimmering around the corners of her eyes, but she knew better than to chase it now; she'd run around for hours after one of those pools and it was always just out of reach, just too far away. She wanted to cry, but she just didn't have the fluids in her anymore, and so she settled for rocking back and forth, squatting on the ground, and breathing heavily. Her right wing bent over her, covered her, while her left stayed out at its awkward angle.

What was she going to do?

Zulu was wrapped in his white robes, his skin relatively safe from the sun's hot rays. He walked across the sand, his blue hooves sliding slightly among the slippery ground. He didn't like his pace being so inefficient- these stupid hooves were far too slippery.
He looked in the distance and saw something akin to a large bird crumple to the ground, its feathers wavering in the heated air across the dunes. Whatever it was, it looked like it was hurt. It curled up in itself against the sand, heedless of the burning heat beneath it. He should probably find out if it was alright- he'd never be able to live with himself if he let a bird die in the desert like that.
He looked down at his left hand, making sure the winding bracelet was securely on his wrist, the green stone in the center of his palm set firmly. He would be able to defend himself if he needed to.
He walked over to the creature, looking more confused the closer he got. It was smaller than he thought it was- and looked nothing like he had heard of.

Anri heard something move, or she thought she did; it was hard to tell what was real out here, and she'd been seeing things since the heat of the sun woke her up this morning. Yesterday, she'd been fine, a little jumpy, but today, seeing things all over. She wouldn't be surprised if the hallucinations, or the strange dream-things, weren't limited to her sense of sight.

Her wings fluttered, or at least tried to, as she rocked to her feet, and she let out a cry as her left wing jostled in its attempt to move. She seemed to be hallucinating a sort of Saebra unicorn man. "You," she told him seriously, pointing her finger at him, "are not real. Nope. Probably not. Maybe a normal Saebra. I should go. Okay, I'm going to go now." Turning, she winced and half-hopped along the sand, wincing and yelping with each movement that moved her dislocated wing.

Zulu froze in surprise as she talked, seeing her as a half-creature like he was. He tried to contain his excitement before realizing she was thinking she was hallucinating him. He had his hood down- she could see what he looked like. If he hadn't know better, he'd think he was a hallucination too...
"Hold still." he said, jogging over to her and standing in front of her to stop her. "You look like you're in pain- what's wrong?" he asked, his voice gruff.

Anri looked up at the hallucination, squinting in the bright sun and saying frankly as she hopped from foot to foot, "You're a very nice hallucination, but I'm fine, thank you. Look, I can--AUGH." She had tried to fly, moving her wings in a strong downstroke that sent her sideways into the air about two feet before dropping her, her left wing spasming in pain from the attempt. She yelped and pushed away from the burning sand again, which jostled her wing, which made her yelp...

She forced herself to stand still again, nodded firmly at the hallucination with tears in her eyes. "Yup. So. Saebras are territorial, right? I'm probably about to get speared to death and cooked in the sun. Yup. Sounds like something that would happen to me." Again she tried to half-hop away, her right wing fluttering as if it wanted to help her slow progress.

"Just- stop!" he said in frustration, reaching out and holding her by the shoulders to stop her. She was obviously hurting herself in her attempt to get away from him. "I'm not going to spear you. By Volarn's fire, how long have you been out here?" He looked at her wide crazed eyes in concern. She was obviously mad from the heat- she needed water, shade and rest.
This was the only other person he had found that had a change like he did- and he wouldn't -couldn't- let her get hurt if he could prevent it. "Just stay still, don't move, and I'll try to figure out what's wrong." Obviously it was something to do with her wings- though he didn't know much about bird anatomy. He could always give it a shot, though.
He looked at her wings with thoughtful eyes, his light blue eyes piercing as thoughts raced in his head, trying to get ideas and solutions to the problem at hand. It obviously wasn't broken- it wouldn't be able to move. It was obviously hurting, unable to move much without her crying in pain- sounded like a sprain, or dislocation.

Anri tilted her head at the hallucination. "Well, it's probably been about...six nights, seven days, something like that. I was keeping track on a stick, but I lost my stick. I dropped it. Where did I drop it?" She looked around in confusion as if expecting to find her missing stick nearby, like a misplaced belonging.

She shrugged and bit her lip around a yelp as the movement jostled her wing again; she tasted blood. The hallucination looked at her with pale blue eyes and she sighed, "You know, my eyes are that color. But they look weird with all these feathers around them. Like the frame is wrong. Stupid man. Stupid stone. If I find him, I'll probably...bite him." She looked over her shoulder at her wing as if it was an annoyance. "Stupid wing. You know, I think it's dislocated. Needs to be popped into place. But I can't do it. And it's like I can feel the muscles tearing." She looked back at the hallucination. "I'm Anri. You're really not going to spear me? That'd be nice, not to turn into a shish kabob."

Zulu grumbled to himself in frustration before walking behind her, looking at the wing in question. Yep, definitely dislocated- the heavy limp was stretching the muscles around it at an awkward angle- and that couldn't feel good. "Well, hold very still, and I'll try and fix it," He said, bringing up his hands, shaking the long fabric from them to reveal fingers with small hooves at the ends of them. He reached up and gripped either side of the wing, yanking quickly to bring the bone back into its place.

Anri shrieked loudly as her wing snapped back into place; reflexively both wings snapped straight out above her head and trembled, dropping little ash-colored feathers to the sand.

But her wing felt better. She flexed it close to her and out again once, twice experimentally, then turned to hug the hallucination with a happy squeal. "Oh, thank you, thank you!" she exclaimed, her wings brought close against her shoulders again. "Oh, that's so much better! Thank you!"
