Nitiris' Child

Recommended Posts

It was night time in Pandora, all of the forest was lit up in purples and blues. Jake and Netiri were running bouncing of the springy ground which lit up they touched it.

They watched the little flying lizards whirring overhead, Neitiri was clutching a small bundle to her chest.

It was her newborn child Ralu, she smiled at Jake fondly, they were running to their childs ceremony, where the people welcome a new being into life.

Ralus' tail was wrapped around Netiris' arm, and starring up at her with grreinsh golden eyes.

"Calm gentle one, calm." Netiri spoke to Ralu.

As they approached Hometree, the whole clan seated or standing was waiting for them. As soon as they walked in eager faces were closing in trying to catch a glimpse of Netiris' bundle.

Olo' eyktan and the Tsahik were smiling at them.

Jake stroked Ralus' face and kisse her fore-head.

"I see you." said Olo' eyktan to Jake and Netiri Every Na'vi gathered round and touched Ralu one by one.

After the ceremony, Jake and Netiri went up to their plant hammocks and slept Ralu slept with Netiri.

*****

Jake woke up early and went down the spiral passage to a small room to eat, he picked up a ki'ong and bit into it, the juice was sweet and refreashing.

"Kaltxi Jake," Netiri said and walked into the room, carrying Ralu.

"I see you." Replied Jake and walked over to Ralu.

"Isn't she beutiful?" Netiri smiled.

"Yes, she has your beutiful face." Jake replied, just at this moment of tenderness K'han walked in.

K'han was one of Jakes best friends and a good hunter.

"Seykxel si nitram!" He smiled, then he met Jakes' eyes.

Jake had the look of 'you skxawng you ruined it!'

K'han picked up some nuts and berries and walked out of the room.

"Lets go and see Eywa." Jake took Netiri's hand and they left.

*****

When they arrived at The Tree Of Souls they took a handful of the glowing purple strings and linked.

'Thank you Eywa for Ralu' Jake thought, he looked over at Netiri, 'oh she's just too beutiful.' he thought and took her head in his hands and kissed her.

'Yes' thought Jake still linked, 'Thoank you for everything.'

I wake up early; Netiri is still asleep and holding Ralu in her arms.

I quietly run up the spiral branches and up out into the top branches of Hometree. I whistle out and my Ikran swoops down out of nowhere. I pull my flight piece onto my head and into place. I link with my Ikran and we fly out into the morning sky. The wind whips my hair back, and I laugh out loud as my Ikran does a double turn. We fly under a waterfall and get drenched, but the wind soon pushes off any water droplets.

I fly back to Hometree. Netiri is awake and walking in the passages,

“Where have you been?” She questions me.

“I was out flying,” I say and smile at Ralu, who smiles back at me through long, dark eyelashes.

Neitiri smiles too.

“You should have woken me up.” She says to me, “I would have come with you.”

“You cannot fly with Ralu!” I say.

“You are right,” Neitiri replies, “What was I thinking?” she starts to sob.

“Hey, don’t do that!” I say alarmed and wipe the tears off her face.

“It’s just..I need to be....so..much more careful” she splutters through tears.

I don’t know what to do so I hug her, she grips me tightly, and I hold her close.

When she stops I say,

“Let’s go and show Ralu the world.” I say to Netiri and she takes my hand in hers and we walk out into Pandora.
