Blackberry reluctantly let herself be pulled out. "Fine," she muttered, sitting down on the wooden floor of the deck. Vines wound up the wooden poles that formed a sort of dome around the healer's hut, their flowers hanging low and brushing against her face, perfuming the air with a sweet, sleepy smell. Now that Uakari had mentioned it, she suddenly did feel tired...
"You've had a long night," fussed Uakari, crouching to meet Blackberry's eyes. "Come on, you can't fall asleep now- at least get to a hammock! Blackberry..."
Blackberry's head slowly drooped onto her chest, her scales bursting into a last trying indigo before they relaxed into a light violet. As her body began to tip onto the deck, Uakari quickly caught her and laid her down gently. Great, she thought irritably, brushing a few raindrops off her head. Now how am I supposed to get her to her hammock? She'll have to sleep here...
She quietly poked her head inside the healer's hut. Now that most of the trainees were gone, the room was quiet and peaceful, like a meditation center. Only a few RainWings hovered around the patient, their scales a calm dappled blue. Uakari went over to a healer and quietly asked him if he could help her move Blackberry. Carefully, they picked up Blackberry and moved her over to a cot, placing her down gently.
"Thanks for the help," Uakari whispered.
"No worries," the healer responded, smiling at her. "She won't be any trouble. We'll probably forget she's there."
Uakari stepped outside and looked over the canopy to the horizon. The sun was almost about to rise. Oh, good! I really need to refill. She stretched her cramped wings and her arms, preparing to sleep.
