CHAPTER ELEVEN Norm looked so much different as a Na’vi. For one, he was sexy. Well, as sexy as a ten foot tall blue hunk could be. His Na’vi nose was flatter to his face and his eyes seemed to be angled a little more. “Are you in a link right now?” He had to be. Jake too. She couldn’t wait to see them as humans again. “Well uh, you see Trudy,” Norm began, “things have changed. A lot of things.” He seemed nervous, but he knelt in front of her, effectively making them the same height. “This is my... Continue »

CHAPTER TWELVE Neytiri looked around the office. The walnut wooding reminded her of Hometree, how its grain seemed to make everything in the room right. However, she couldn’t imagine cutting down a tree to decorate a room. The thought almost made her nauseous, but she was too strong for that. It was still a strange place though. For one, the room was much too small. She didn’t enjoy crouching. It gave her less room to maneuver, and this was a hostile place. The hanging paintings on the wall reminder her of the pictures she had seen all her life, back... Continue »

CHAPTER TEN Trudy twirled the food on her plate. The table sat everyone on the trip, at least twenty people. She glanced at everyone in turn. Casual conversation drifted to her ears and she picked up a few things about plant samples and such. The security detail sat on one side at the corner, not paying much attention to anyone else but themselves. She’d love to go over there and “shoot the shit”, but Toby had asked that she sit next to him. “Trudy?” Trudy looked up and shook her head. “Huh?” The people next to her were staring at... Continue »

Decided to change the font for those of you who were having trouble reading it with the original. For anyone who wants to read it with the original font, all you have to do is copy+paste into your word processor, and set the font to Papyrus. “Hurry up Trudy! They’ll leave without us.” Toby was almost dancing in her doorway. He was almost as anxious as she was to get out into the open. The walls were stifling, and she was pretty sure she had developed a case of claustrophobia over the past years. “Come on,” he whined again. “Shut... Continue »

Decided this didn't belong with chapter 7 so its now chapter 8. Fire. There was plenty of fire to go around. It swam through the air like a plague. The air blistered as it heated. The steady hum of the twin turbines had started to sputter and make noises they weren’t meant to. Trudy could feel her hair sizzle, her face peel back. Her screams went unanswered as the fire roared into an untamable inferno. Through the fire she could see the ground coming closer. Not really the ground, but the canopy of the forest. She could just make out... Continue »

Norm Spellman walked quietly through the underbrush of Pandora’s forest. His blue feet making soft footprints in the mud, he looked up into the drizzle that made it through the canopy. He closed his eyes and listened to the sound of the forest, a Sturmbeest trumpeted far in the distance, and something was buzzing around a stand of trees to his left, possibly a nest of Hellfire Wasps. Opening his eyes, he took in the beauty of the forest around him. Ever since the RDA left Pandora, his life had changed for the better. His understanding of the Na’vi, the... Continue »

The new village of the Omaticaya was not far from the Tree of Souls. The encampment was made up of tents of all shapes and sizes, made from materials as plentiful as leaves and branches, to things a little harder to acquire, like animal hides. The Na’vi went about their business, adults weaving, children playing with toy Ikrans, and the elders socializing amongst themselves. Jake and Norm’s arrival caused little stir; everyone knew they were out hunting. Jake and Norm gave the Hexapede carcass to a few willing people and made their way towards the center of the camp. Several... Continue »

The night drew on and eventually the Na’vi drifted off to their tents to find some rest. Neytiri, carrying a sleeping Tom’tey, said goodnight to Norm and Jake, and walked to the tent she shared with her mate. Soon, only a few were left around the fire, including Jake and Norm. The two talked about their journey today, the tracking, the hunt, and eventually the kill. “I’m glad it’s over with,” Norm said, leaning back and laying down on the ground, staring at the night sky, Polyphemus’s blue atmosphere radiating above him. Its other moons pock-marked its surface with shadows,... Continue »

Norm sneezed. His nostrils twitched as he sniffed some spice that a cook was putting into a clay pot of some boiling turquoise liquid. It gave him the impression of an old-age Italian cook adding oregano to a pot of tomato pasta sauce. Rubbing his nose, he bid the cook farewell and went off looking for Jake. He heard that he and Neytiri went off into the forest. I hope I won’t be interrupting anything, he thought. The village had several different paths he could have taken, but even though it had been many years, his fascination with the Na’vi... Continue »

The ride to Iknimaya was not very long, only a few hours. Norm’s heart felt like it was about to pound its way through his chest. His Direhorse, Felei, plodded along at leisurely pace along with the rest of the people who came with him. One of his tent mates, Kepu, was also being tested today. His Na’vi features remained calm, but his fingers twitched every now and then. At least I’m not the only nervous one, he thought. The party came to a halt in front of a tower of floating rocks. Jake dismounted and everyone else followed suit.... Continue »

That night was filled with celebration. The Na’vi sang and dance in honor of Norm and Kepu being “reborn”. Drinks were passed around and a variety of food decorated spits and stones around the fire. Norm was on his feet, dancing with his people. The current selection was a circular dance, done to honor the circle of life and its energy. The dancer started on the edge of the group and snaked his or her way through the throng of revelers, and ended after reaching the original position. Norm made this journey four times before he had anything to eat.... Continue »

Jake ran through the forest. His bow was slung across his back and his arms pumped as his strides took him closer to his intended target. He didn’t consciously know what that target was, but he knew he had to reach it. Something about it drew him, like wind filling his sails. His feet hit the ground with barely any sound, and the wind was the only sound that filled his ears. He had never run this fast before. He imagined that this was what it would feel like to be an arrow shot from a bow. “Jake…” His name... Continue »
