We fly together from the barren lands toward Tshuan.
You can see a person’s heart by watching how high they fly.
Some fly close to the ground, just high enough to clear obstacles.
They fly, but they’re afraid that if they get too far from the ground, they’ll never be able to return to their life on the ground.
