A Swan's Grace: Chapter 3: The Most Beautiful Rose

One day, Lilacfeather is taking the youngsters for a walk, when Petalwing cries out “Oh, Lilacfeather, Lilacfeather, look at this rose!” Lilacfeather turns, and sees the most beautiful rose she has ever seen. She has inherited her mother’s love of flowers, and this one’s pastel pink petals and simple sweetness is almost irresistible…she snaps out of it. There seems to be some sort of magic around here, and she doesn't like it. She turns to tell the others that they are going back home…but where are the others? She is alone. She almost cries. All these years she has spent looking after them, and now they seem to have just disappeared into thin air?! This is just too much. Lilacfeather has to find them. You can’t simply allow the only people you have left to slip away from you.


  1. Aw, poor Lilacfeather. What will happen next?

  2. The phrase "pastel pink petals and simple sweetness" is absolutely stunning. What a beautiful description of the rose. I can understand why it's almost irresistible.
